I personally believe anyone  who kills an animal for the pure purpose of an offering, and not consumption is sick. And while I preach religious freedom, i believe animal rights are more important.

That seems unreasonable. Domesticated animals are raised by us to be killed. The moment we raise them with the intent to butcher them, we are asserting that they are our food... and food and drink are typical offerings. If, and let me emphasize, *if* I were to sacrifice an animal however, I would try and purchase an animal that was already going to be butchered, and treat it as well as possible while raising it. Again, that's a big"if", since I lack the resources to do this, but I think in general, there would be a correct way to go about it. It would be difficult, but not impossible. As a matter of fact, this is legal for the freedom of religions such as Santeria.
