Last summer Al and I visited Tuulispää, farm animal sanctuary, on our family visit to Finland. Tuulispää’s mission is to give place to retired farm animals which would otherwise face slaughtering. The visit was one of the highlights of the holiday, seeing rescued or retired farm animals in peaceful and graceful surrounding without the fear of being slaughtered when not useful anymore.
Tuulispää’s founder Piia and our friend and mentor Maura gave us an eye-opening tour at the farm, where all the animals were either roaming free or in big fenced areas to enjoy their lives without anxiety, fear and stress.
Tulispää just turned five years old, Dive Dreams congratulates farm animal sancruary, its founder incredible Piia and all the volunteers and donors who make this happen. And of course all the furry residents!
Maybe this Christmas we can all consider showing more kindness to animals and think where our Christmas dinner actually comes from. If you wish to support Tuulispää, you can participate their “Christmas joy” fundraising by contacting Piia: email@example.com or visit their donation page (in Finnish): http://www.tuulispaa.org/lahjoita/ajankohtaiset-keraykset/
Tuulispää has won two animal welfare prizes, the Topelius Prize for animal protection by the Helsinki Humane Society and the prize for the best act in animal protection in 2014 by the Finnish Federation for Animal Welfare Associations (SEY).
