In Honor of Mother’s Day: 5 Animal Moms With Their Babies

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, making this the perfect time to honor your mother by helping mothers of all species.

Like us, farmed animals develop strong, lifelong bonds with their young, and seek to protect them from harm.
Mother hens take their chicks under their wings, providing shelter, and chicks spend their first few weeks learning to scratch for food by watching their mothers.

Cows carry their calves for nine months and they suckle them for nine to twelve months, much like human mothers.

Mother pigs sing to their babies while nursing.

Humans aren’t the only species to learn from and admire their mothers, but we are the only species to deny other animals everything that is natural and important to them.
We all have the power to help mothers confined and abused on factory farms by adopting a kind and compassionate vegan lifestyle.
