Paradise Found! – What Farm Animals Teach Us About Compassionate Living
Laurelee Blanchard

Have you ever cuddled a soft chicken, brushed a cow, or given a belly rub to a pig? These can be life-changing experiences for people fortunate enough to visit Leilani Farm Sanctuary, a joyful place both for rescued farm animals and for the humans who learn to appreciate them as individual beings, not as food. Embark on a journey of learning the truth about animal exploitation, questioning the status quo, and exploring better ways to live; and how we can make new, informed food choices, aligned with compassion, that will optimize our physical health in ways that are ecologically sustainable. Laurelee Blanchard, Leilani Farm Sanctuary’s founder, will also share some beautiful stories and photographs of the animals who live there!

Laurelee Blanchard, founder and president of Leilani Farm Sanctuary, left a successful career in the business world to devote her life to animal protection. Leilani Farm Sanctuary of Maui–an all-volunteer, non- profit organization–is home to nearly three hundred rescued animals, including goats, chickens, rabbits, ducks, donkeys, geese, deer, cats, pigs, sheep, turkeys, guinea pigs, tortoises, and a cow. The Sanctuary provides educational programs for school groups and special- needs visitors; it also offers tours to the general public. Her newly released book, Finding Paradise: Leilani Farm Sanctuary of Maui, chronicles her dramatic journey from corporate America to a life with farm animals.
