Love for Animals
In May 2022, Silverstone penned a letter about her son’s relationship with animals in support of Farm Sanctuary’s Mother’s Day adoption campaign.
“One of the greatest and most rewarding things in my life has been being a mom to Bear. Many of you have seen him grow up over the last decade because one of our very favorite things to do together is visit the rescued animals at Farm Sanctuary!” the actress wrote on the nonprofit’s website. “For animal lovers, Mother’s Day can be bittersweet when we think of the other species who just want to love their babies and are robbed of the opportunity to exercise their maternal instinct because of human greed and exploitation in factory farming.”
Silverstone noted that she has instilled an appreciation for other creatures in her child. “That’s why raising Bear with an awareness of animal sentience and compassion — not just for the animals we share our home with, but for the entire animal kingdom — has been my bedrock of being a Kind Mama,” she added.Back to top
