Farm Sanctuary may have landed Tyrion Lannister for their upcoming “Walk for Farm Animals” campaign – but they also just cut the ribbon on a gorgeous new animal hospital.

Called “The Melrose Small Animal Hospital”, the new building (located near its Watkins Glen facility) will treat sick and injured animals in need of emergency care, such as IVs, oxygen therapy, and minor surgeries. According to a press release, the new facility will allow rescued animals to bypass veterinary hospitals, “sparing them the stress of travel at an already painful and frightening time.”

And it’s high-tech too. Training cameras and viewing areas will allow FS to share farm animal care strategies with other sanctuaries and vet students across the nation.

“Being able to treat and document the unique health challenges farm animals face as a result of routine breeding and rearing methods used on factory farms will help advance care standards for rescued animals across the animal protection movement and will engage more people in efforts to stop cruel factory farming practices,” the release states.

How’s that for your donations at work?
