WELCOME TO THE
At a cellular level, all animals (human and non-human) crave happiness in their own way. Whether as dance-floor ecstasy or meditative contentment, scratches under the neck or fresh grass, a piece of music or a soft bed, happiness is a quality beyond being simply “maintained” - a quality which elevates all life to a magical and transcendent state.
The Institute for Animal Happiness (IFAH) is a vegan microsanctuary and growing advocacy organization. The Institute seeks to foster more happiness and kindness through direct action, education and creativity - in order to alleviate the suffering of all beings, human and non-human. We focus on the rescue, care and sanctuary needs of the most abused beings on earth: chickens. In focusing on these small, completely discounted victims who are deemed worthless and expendable by society at large, we wish to make our mission very clear: all beings have rights, and all beings deserve to live free from cruelty and suffering. We strive to continually maintain a high level of individualized care for our residents, as well as to foster art and opportunities that encourage joy, creative learning, new dialogues and positive action for animals that is linked clearly to the rainbow of social justice movements. Our anti-speciesism is firmly rooted in a vegan, animal rights = human rights (Intersectional) philosophy. Equality and justice must be for all.
“…I have come to you, for you, to be a witness to your life and to extend whatever understanding and happiness I can.”
