Besides being hella talented, the Bones actress is notorious for her outspoken opinions on animal welfare, human health and environmental sustainability. In a new video interview, Deschanel praises the work of Farm Sanctuary, saying:
“A few years ago I was able to visit Farm Sanctuary’s New York shelter — I had probably been vegan for over 10 years by then — and it was still a life-changing experience. You get to see all of these animals [who were] raised in factories and confined to crates and they’re living free on this amazing property. There’s just so much space for them to roam and they’re treated so well.”
We’ve also spent some time at the New York shelter and can verify its transformative powers!
