Leona Lewis stands up for animals again, visits HSUS Black Beauty Ranch

Singer Leona Lewis has once again demonstrated her love of animals, by visiting the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch.

The Texas ranch, named after the book by Anna Sewell, is America’s largest and most diverse animal sanctuary and stretches over 1,300 acres. Many of the 1,200 inhabitants have been rescued from abusive situations such as slaughterhouses, zoos, research laboratories and trophy hunting ranches, but are now free to live out their natural lives in peace. The ranch is not open to the public, nor is it a zoo; it exists purely for the animal’s welfare.

While at the ranch, Leona filmed a video in which she meets some of the inhabitants, expresses her love for animals, and how she believes that we all must stand up for those who do not have a voice.
