Please Help Us Help the St. Louis Cows

Help Us Help the St. Louis Cows

I just came home absolutely exhausted from our turkey road trip. Leaving Adeline in Tennessee was excruciating! I've loved her for two years, but over the last ten days we've bonded so deeply. It's not about me, however, it's about Adeline. She's happy on the grass with all the attention and on her new adventure. Adeline is very aware of her job opening hearts and changing the world one cuddle at a time.

While I was on our turkey road trip, Jay was in St. Louis saving and caring for six cows who had escaped from a slaughter house. This week, Jay brought the cows to the Missouri Large Animal Hospital to get vet care. They ran fecal and blood tests, treated them all for parasites, and addressed their wounds. One of the cows seems to have an injury causing a limp and heavy breathing. We're doing radiographs and diagnostics, and put him on pain medication.

Once they are all treated and in good health, we'll be bringing them to their permanent home. We're still determining whether that'll be in Tennessee or in California.

Their medical bills will be high. We were not prepared to undertake this rescue at this time, but when no one stepped up to save them, we had to respond. Please help us, help them. We cannot do this without your help.

To contribute to the care and treatment for these six St. Louis cows, please go to our GoFundMe campaign!

Thank you for your support!

No Evil Foods makes meat…from plants. Some people told us it couldn’t be done. We took that as a challenge and started a rebellious company that uses food as a force for good. In a world of unsustainable animal agricultural practices and highly processed meat alternatives, our small-batch plant-based meats challenge the status quo by using simple, sustainable ingredients to recreate a traditional protein experience that blows minds from coast to coast.

No Evil Foods was born from a belief in the power of an individual (in our case, two) to enact global change and we couldn't be more excited to put our purpose into practice through our support of The Gentle Barn. We strongly believe that each of us has the power and responsibility to repair the world by speaking up for the most vulnerable among us. Thanks to The Gentle Barn for creating a safe place where our farmed friends can find peace.
