Kat Von D Spends Her 34th Birthday Volunteering At Animal Sanctuary For Abused Farm Animals

Kat Von D spent her latest birthday volunteering at a sanctuary for abused farm animals.
The tattoo artist, who turned 34 earlier this month, first visited Farm Sanctuary in Acton, California, for a photoshoot last month.

She posed with some of the sanctuary’s animals for Laika, a vegan lifestyle magazine.
Just a few days later, Von D tweeted a photo of herself cuddling a small black lamb, writing in the caption: ‘Some of the best kisses ever.’

She then asked Farm Sanctuary if she could come back for her birthday on March 8 and eventually spent the day volunteering there.

Von D, a vegan, later tweeted a photo of her tattooed hand resting on an animal’s hoof, adding: ‘Best birthday ever thanks to Farm Sanctuary.’

The tattoo artist has banned animal testing from her makeup line and has a list of items made without animal products or by-products on her website.

Farm Sanctuary rescues abused and neglected farm animals in its three shelters. Two are located in California, in Acton and Los Angeles, and the third one is in Watkins Glen, New York.

A fourth shelter will open next year at the farm Jon Stewart shares with his wife Tracey in New Jersey.
