In honor of #nationalpuppyday meet Caitlin Jr, or CJ for short, who was recently adopted by @boochaces from an animal hoarder that had 130 dogs living in deplorable conditions and 44 dead dogs found in bags in freezers in the home...truly unreal and very sad, but thankfully this cute puppy now has a truly great home...here’s @boochaces on her adoption of CJ in her own words: After Loki passed away, I vowed to never adopt another dog for the rest of my life. I don’t talk about him much because I can’t. He was MY dog and I was HIS human. He was the only dog I ever adopted solely on my own. He watched me grow up. He was there for me through breakups and moves. He watched me fail and succeed. He was my first real responsibility. Losing him was a shattering experience for me. But upon meeting this little creature, I realized that I wasn’t replacing Loki if I adopted another dog. You don’t replace loved ones when they die. It doesn’t work that way. You cherish their memory and never compare. You honor them by going forward with your head held high and heart open to new possibilities. Being so against adopting another dog wasn’t a good way to honor Loki - because if there was a dog before Loki, and I followed that mindset, then I would have never had Loki in my life to begin with. As I filled out the adoption paperwork and handed over my personal debit card to pay for the adoption fee, I literally paused and took the deepest breath because even after death, Loki is still my best teacher. For the first time in close to 20 years, I PERSONALLY adopted a dog. Me. By myself. Not with Len or Rancho Relaxo or another rescue. Just me. I hope she teaches me amazing lessons and I hope that I can help settle her nerves and make her feel at home after the trauma she’s been through. Meet Caitlin Jr. She is around 7 months to a year old - they could not pinpoint exactly at the shelter - and she came from one of the most horrific hoarding cases that has ever happened in our area. The woman who is being charged was a “successful” breeder. Please. Adopt.  Don’t shop. There are so many dogs in shelters in need of homes! #puppylove #karmagawa

@savethereef Such a touching story too

@timothysykes @savethereef 🙌🙌

Meet Pistachio, a baby pig who is just a few days old and was rescued from certain death by @boochaces who saved this little guy after receiving a call from a farmer who didn’t know that his pot bellied pig was pregnant and had given birth to 12 babies. Swipe right to see 3 overly cute videos of this #babypig and please share this post with your followers because we need to bring much more awareness to the incredible work @boochaces does so they can save even more animals! Sadly, Pistachio was the only baby of the 12 to survive, but he is now thriving and growing quickly thanks to this amazing team that is taking excellent care of him at this rescue center! And this is just one example of so many animals that this dedicated rescue farm cares for and why we at Karmagawa are SO proud to support them with donations and greater exposure and we need your help in supporting them too! #piglove #animallove #savetheanimals #karmagawa

@timothysykes Awwwww SO cute!!! I love @boochaces and their dedication to helping animals!

@boochaces @karmagawa we ❤️ you

We’re proud to have donated $50,000 (so far) to the great animal rescue farm @boochaces as while we post a lot of sad photos/videos of animals being mistreated, this is a positive post because @boochaces TRULY cares about animals and the husband and wife team behind this rescue center have devoted their lives to taking care of them...here’s the story behind this photo from Caitlin, the founder: On February 9, 2015 (4 years ago), I took this picture of Mollie. To this day, it is one of my favorite pictures that I have ever posted on social media. Why? Because I remember every emotion that went along with it. I remember watching Mollie bounce around. I remember watching her stop when she felt the sunlight through the glass. I remember watching her paw at the ground to create a nesting spot. I remember her curling up, face toward the window to soak up the rays of sunshine coming through. I remember thinking to myself, “She feels everything - pain, love, fear, happiness. She feels it all. Just like me.” Lambs are the most gentle creatures on the planet. It is such a shame that we murder them for things like Uggs and lamb chops. #ranchorelaxo #animallover #karmagawa

WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES Watch this video and see how crazy it was for fishermen to use drift nets, up to a mile long, that caused far too many unnecessary deaths of whales, dolphins, sharks, sea turtles and other sea life...and we use the past tense because within months of this video expose‘s debut (which was spearheaded by 4 environmental groups banding together), and it going viral, drift gillnets like these were banned in California, the last US state to do so. So, we post this video now to show the problems marine life face and, more importantly, to help you understand that videos like this, while certainly disturbing and difficult to watch, are CRUCIAL in creating a better world for humans and animals alike. So, please share this video with your followers and tag people in the comments who need to see it and please make sure they also read the caption as this one specific problem has been solved and it should inspire you to see what we’re capable of when we spread enough awareness everywhere through videos like this so that governments, corporations, and individuals are FORCED to change their ways for the good of our environment and planet! #teamwork #protectouroceans #karmagawa

@d_hanzzy22 Progress.... keep it going @Karmagawa. We can do this!👏

@timothysykes @d_hanzzy22 🙌🙌

Fishing nets, not plastic straws or bottles, make up nearly half of the ocean’s plastic pollution problem with an estimated 640,000 tons of lost fishing gear polluting the oceans and harming wildlife like sea turtles each year. We must pressure commercial fishing companies to be more responsible and the good news is that we the people, especially the amazing Karmagawa community, have the power to truly influence companies to be more eco-friendly. For example, in 1990, after a great deal of public pressure, the world’s 3 largest tuna companies  agreed to stop intentionally netting dolphins and soon after a ‘dolphin safe’ certification label was introduced...and tuna-related dolphin deaths declined significantly. We’ll soon be introducing our plan to lessen fishing gear-related pollution so stay tuned, but for now please share this post with your followers and tag people in the comments who need to see this to help us spread awareness about this problem as it’s going to take all of us working TOGETHER to actually help solve this crisis! #endplasticpollution #savetheseaturtles #fishingnets #karmagawa

@timothysykes Uhhhhh so disturbing, but fortunately we can and we WILL force fishing companies to do a better job by working together!!!

@chelseakauai 💙💙💙💙💙 Thank you for coming at this and educating the heck out of yourselves. So proud. Talk to @sustainablecoastlineshawaii or @instakahi great resources on the subject

Even if you somehow think #plasticpollution doesn’t apply to you, at least consider what it’s doing to our wildlife like the #seaturtles where 6 of the 7 #seaturtle species are now threatened or endangered due to plastic bags which sadly resemble jellyfish, algae and other species that make up a large component of the sea turtles diet...research suggests 50%+ of the world’s turtles have eaten plastic waste! #endplasticpollution #karmagawa

Our prayers go out to the victims and families of those involved in the mass shooting in New Zealand in which 49 people were killed and more than 40 others were injured. This senseless killing MUST stop and we must come together as a species and learn to respect our differences, not be divided by them! We MUST learn to love one another and appreciate each other more because love, not anger, is the most powerful force on earth so we MUST learn to appreciate, not hate, people from all different backgrounds #lovenothate #prayfornewzealand #karmagawa

We’re shocked by the “doesn’t apply to me” type comments/attitude that we’ve seen on our recent posts about the #trashtag challenge and #plasticpollution and sadly it’s that misguided thinking that condemns us all to horrific rivers of trash like this video. WE MUST START CHANGING OUR WAYS ASAP UNLESS WE WANT THIS TO BE OUR FUTURE! Please share this video and tag people who need to see it in the comments and let’s make this world better by working TOGETHER!

The #trashtag challenge is a step in the right direction, but you can also help reduce #plasticpollution by using reusable products like these instead of #singleuseplastic products that are quickly destroying our environment and harming wildlife all over the world. We know it’s an added annoyance to your already busy life, but it’s a small price to pay compared to the horrific consequences we‘lol soon be faced with as a planet if we do not start making these changes ASAP! Please share this important post with your followers and also tag people who need to see it in the comments below because we really do have the power to #saveourplanet when we take these issues seriously and work together! #endplasticpollution #karmagawa

WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES Please watch and share this video to help these poor elephants from further abuse by getting everyone around the world to see EXACTLY why riding elephants is so bad as these majestic creatures are abused and tortured to crush their spirit in order for them to entertain tourists! We, meaning you and the entire Karmagawa community, have the power to stop this blatant animal abuse because when we watch and share this video all over Instagram and everyone tags people who also need to see it in the comments then everyone who you share it with will watch it and also share it and tag more people too...and then for the first time in history, tourists from all over the world will be made aware of this disgusting elephant abuse, and they will inevitably stop paying animal abusers like these to ride elephants and thus these unethical places will go out of business and the elephants will be sold to truly ethical sanctuaries like @elephantnaturepark and @phuketelephantsanctuary where the elephants are NOT abused! Our #savetherhino video got over 30+ million views and raised enough awareness for people all over the world to donate a lot of money to great organizations fighting poachers and thus rhinos have been safer ever since...so we know videos like that that help spread awareness about important issues works...BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP to make it happen! By everyone sharing this eye-opening video with your followers, TOGETHER WE CAN STOP ELEPHANT ABUSE by making this go viral and alerting EVERYONE to the problem so they too watch and share it and TOGETHER we will educate the world! Great video @uniladadventure now we must help spread the word! #stopanimalabuse #savetheelephants #karmagawa

@timothysykes This is heartbreaking abuse and MUST be stopped so I promise to share it with my followers and get as many people as oeuvre to do the same!!! We must work TOGETHER to stop this shit ASAP!!!

@elisha__h THIS MAKES ME SO MAD

WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGE When we see disgusting pictures of animal abuse like this it’s only natural to want to punish those responsible so we understand the thinking of many Karmagawa community members who want justice for animals, but instead of just punishing one person, or even many of the abusers, we’re more focused on ending the systematic abuse that goes on when training/domesticating wild animals and to do that, spreading awareness to the mainstream about this important issue is our top priority! Because the sad reality is that even if these abusers are punished and stopped, others will quickly take their place due to widespread poverty in third world countries where so much animal abuse takes place — and this is why Karmagawa is also focused on building schools all over the world to help spread education and teach people skills so they don’t have to resort to unethical behavior to make money to feed themselves and their families. So, please no more comments and anger directed at vengeance against these animal abusers, instead we must focus on educating people, especially tourists who pay to ride these majestic creatures, so that it’s not in the financial interests of anyone to “train” animals like this anymore! This weekend we’ll be posting the first video in a series of videos exposing elephant abuse to the masses and we will need your help in sharing it with your followers. Can we count on you to help us and help the elephants? #elephantlove #endanimalabuse #karmagawa
