Name an animal
This reward is immaterial, we have thought that we will have a lot of animals at our care, because we want to be a big sanctuary, so however you collaborate we will give you the chance to decide the name of an animal. In our collective there are people who prefer name them with human names and there are others whom consider that it is not necessary. Being this an open debate, we won't put any limit in this respect. Any name that can be considered discriminatory or insulting will be accepted. Beyond this fundamental limitation imagination, or not... You can decide giving your name, a family member, a Nordic god, you can invent a name or you can choose a common name such as "rayo", "blanquito" or "piedra" =). We will make a list with those names and we will assign them to each new admission.

General information

Hi, we are Almas Veganas, a group of people who organised themselves in order to create an anti-specist sanctuary. The sanctuary is based in Les Guilleries (La Selva, Catalonia).

Recently we have initiated the purchase of a piece of land and we need your help to set up the land and house in order to start our job of saving lives.
With the funds we gather we will be able to start rescuing animals, putting fences up and restore parts of the house which are in bad conditions, those will be spaces for the community and for the animals (such as the nursery).

That is why we ask you for your help!

Firstly economically: any donation, no matter how small, will be well received, plus the donations have their reward and our deep gratefulness. Secondly, we ask you something very easy but that will help us a lot: we need to spread the word.It will only take you a few minutes to share this crowdfunding: the more we are the more we will achieve and more animals we will rescue.

You can also follow us in fb, twitter, instagram and youtube. Or you can visit our website to know a bit more about us: www.almasveganas.org

If you have any doubt or you want to collaborate in any other way, just write us at info@almasveganas.org

We have a digital printing machine with which we print all kind of designs, our own and personalised ones. You can consult them at our online shop:https://almasveganas.org/shop/

Thank you very much for your time and help, next we will explain you who we are and what we want to do.

[ Here you can see some of our designs available as rewards in textile format, colours and type of item. Our clothing is organic and fair trade]

Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.

Almas Veganas Santuario Animal is a non-profit association funded in 2017 with the aim to set up this home intended to rescue other animals. It is formed by people from different backgrounds and ages, whom with their experiences and diversity sum up a great wealth of knowledge in order to develop this project.

The idea of this projects has its origins in the fact that there is a lack of resources available to attend other animals rescued, and the will and need of provide them with a welcoming space where they can thrive without any danger to their lives. One of the fundamental aspects of Almas Veganas is to rescue those animals whom are, or could be, victims of violence, abuse, psychological mistreatment and, ultimately, that are exposed to conditions of slavery.

Mission

We save lives, the maximum possible number of non-human animals, specially those considered farm animals, offering them a dignifying life, and liberating them from their slavery.

We educate people about abolitionist veganism in order to create a more respectful with the planet, and animals of all species society.

We intersect the struggles to live in a world without any kind of discrimination.

Vission

We want to be a referent within the vegan and libertarian movements. We want to show an alternative to capitalism, specism, sexism, and many other socially insane and violent attitudes. It is possible.

We want to be an active and strong community, from which to learn and which could help other projects to germinate.

Values

Our values are a clear reflection of our libertarian ideology, we believe in a society without walls, not real nor mental, in which we relate to each other as equals. In which solidarity, compassion and mutual support are the center of our relationships.

Abolitionist specisim: We want to build a society in which any animal species is mistreated, in which we do not have any hierarchy within species, in which all animals can live a long, free and dignifying life, without being exploited or utilised as a resource.

Intersectional transfeminism: We know that there are many feminist schools of thought. Even though we acknowledge that the world is written in a binary language, we want to break with the gender roles and acknowledge that there is much more behind the man-women binomial. We also believe it is impossible to be feminist without being anti-racist, or anti capitalist, for instance.

Libertarian communism:We believe in a world in which social relationships are not structured surrounding money and power, that is why we are anti-authoritarian, and we want to create a space to live as equals (not identical), accepting what each person can add, sharing and supporting one another, making mutual support the center of our cohabitation.

Assembly based: Because we want everybody to have a voice, and we want all our decisions come from a consensus, learning to listen each other, give voice to every one and generate horizontal structures.

Anti capitalist environmentalism: We are aware that the world we live in is finite, that is why we cannot consume resources at the current rhythm. We want to recover forgotten knowledge, make our own materials, plant our own food, self-supply ourselves with energy,...

We want to reduce our footprint and find ways to take advantage of the resources which nature offer us without destroying the ecosystems. We do that for us, for the future generations and for non-human animals. Do not let ourselves to be fooled by the ecocapitalits model, an economical model that has the tendency to grow in a disproportionate way will never be able to save the planet.

Objectives

• To create a Sanctuary with an absolutely ecological base. Built with bio-construction materials (recycled materials, proximity wood, straw, etc.) respectful to nature and its inhabitants. Almas Vegans we want to rescue primarily those animals known as “farming animals” who have been exploited, tortured and then discard. Our purpose is to offer those animals a dignifying live in freedom within the physical space of the Sanctuary, where they will be able to recover physically and emotionally from the multiple abuse suffered. And we want to do it supplying them with an adequate diet, attention, veterinary care, quietness and love.

• Educate people throw the promotion of veganism as philosophy of life and feminism as a vindication of women rights, anti-racism, anti capitalism, etc. All ethical viewpoints which refuse any form of oppression, slavery and inequality. We want to fight against abuse of power by human animals towards other animals which leads to put them as inferiors and without any rights. We are aware of this situation so we cannot elude our acquired responsibility, we have put our determination on this with the creation of the Sanctuary.

• Spread the word about the Sanctuary in order to have visitors so people have the opportunity to know its inhabitants, always with respect and prioritizing the well being of the rescued animals.

This way, people will know the everyday life of each rescued animal and will understand the importance that all our individual actions have in order to transform the world, and try to make it more fair and egalitarian. We will give talks and we will project documentaries in a workshop format which will focus on the respect towards any form of live and towards the planet.

We leave you some images of the land and house.

Why this is important

The project is directed to the vegan and/or animal rights community, and to every person who believes that the way we treat animals currently is not correct and that we should contribute actively in making the situation better. Also to anybody with a transfeminist and/or libertarian conscience.

We carry a new world within our hearts: a world free of discrimination, a world free of patriarchy, free of racism and free of capitalism.

We hope to create a community based project and of social transformation, experimenting with the bases of assembly and consensus decision making, reviewing actively hierarchies and privileges.

Living in an ecological way, recovering a cocience of proximity with nature and moving towards food sovereignty. Learning from one another.

We address ourselves to any person or collective who may share those values. With your help we will built a home to save lives and educate people.

Team and experience

We are a team which has been working together for more than a year, designing the project and consolidating the basis. We have been gathering funds in order to get the land where to start this great adventure. This will be the first of a series of crowdfundings with which we aim to fund the project, combined with donations of partners and backers, and the resources coming from self-management.

Almas Veganas team is currently formed by 9 people, they are part of the permanent work group of the project. A well nourished voluntary group which collaborate in different ways. You can know more about us in our website.

The people that are part of the project Almas Veganas are committed, we come from activism in different places, and we have united with the idea that together we are stronger.
