Remember Benjy the bull who was going to be killed because he was more interested in the other bulls than the ladies?

Well look at him now :) Safe and sound and smoozing on all the other bulls and cows at Hillside Animal Sanctuary.

Yay :) Benjy gets to spend the Christmas holidays (and the rest of his life) with his new friends, feeling safe and loved.

I know you've been doing all sorts of amazing things this year to help us get closer and closer to a world where all animals are safe and happy just like Benjy. So to remind you how AWESOME you are, click here to relive some of the amazing achievement's we've made for animals in 2014. And I look forward to seeing you in 2015 for an even bigger and better year :)

Well my heart beamed out a giant rainbow like a little care bear when I read this story. Benjy is a bull who likes bulls. And sadly, Farmer Joe don't want none unless you gunna knock up some cows hun. So poor Benjy was going to get slaughtered. Killed for being gay. That's rough.

BUT Gay UK magazine and Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN) started a campaign to save Benjy from slaughter and give him a safe and happy life at Hillside Animal Sanctuary. You can check out their Crowdfunding campaign here.

Sam Simon, Simpsons co-creator, who you might remember from previous awesomeness such as buying zoos and freeing all the animals and saving hundreds of chinchillas from a fur farm, heard about Benjy and jumped at the chance to help! Simon put up the funds needed to give Benjy a home for life :)

A long-time vegan, Simon said he was glad that Benjy's future was now "a sanctuary rather than a sandwich". Wouldn't it be great if all animals got to look forward to a life of freedom and happiness, rather than being someone's sandwich. But for most bulls, (gay, straight or otherwise), that's sadly not the case. They are born for one reason and one reason only -- their meat.

The good news is, no Benjy's have to die for your sandwich if you simply make the choice to have a no-bull sandwich today, and every other day. To get you started here's a tonne of delicious meat-free sandwich recipes :)
