EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2016
Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization. They have rescued thousands of animals and cared for them at their sanctuaries in Watkins Glen, New York; Northern California (Orland); and the Los Angeles area. At Farm Sanctuary, these animals are friends, not food. They educate millions of people about their plight and the effects of factory farming on our health and environment. They advocate for laws and policies to prevent suffering and promote compassion, and they reach out to legislators and businesses to bring about institutional reforms. Farm Sanctuary is committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate vegan living through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts. Please join us. A compassionate world begins with you!
