Maria Riley the person behind Riley Farm rescue's...this is her story-
Throughout my life I have always been fascinated with animals and have a deep compassion for them. Like most people though, I loved them… and I ate them, not meaning to be a hypocrite, but I was one nonetheless. This changed in 2015 when I decided to buy some chickens merely out of the idea of having them as pets and giving them a loving home. I quickly realized that I had become quite fond of them after seeing their unique personalities and how full of life and joy they were. It was at that moment I challenged the traditional status quo and became a vegetarian and later to become vegan. The very idea that these animals were seen only to serve as a food source for humans without intelligence and emotions has become the fuel for my passion to save many of these magnificent animals.
I spent numerous hours researching and educating myself about the cruel treatment farm animal undergo in the meat and dairy producing industries. With these gruesome stories and graphic images engraved into my mind, I was compelled to act. I learned of a live auction that took place close to my home that sold animals for slaughter. I followed my heart, not knowing what I was about to walk into and where this newfound fire would lead me. It was that day I made the transition to veganism.
I have now rescued over 100 farm animals - chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, goats, guinea pigs, sheep, peacocks, rabbits, pigeons, and a mini horse from various situations. In June of 2017, we were incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit and have had a strong community of like-minded, compassionate people who have volunteered and sponsored our animals.
