Charity Spotlight: Farm Sanctuary

Farm Sanctuary

WHY THEY’RE CRUCIAL: It’s an unfortunate reality that’s hard to face: Today’s factory farms engage in the abuse of thousands of animals every day. If we hope to improve the healthfulness of our own food, we must also work to change the industrialization of farm life. Farm Sanctuary does just that: Brings awareness to the abuses suffered by cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys and sheep in industrialized farms, and works to bring about systemic change to this unhealthy, inhumane system. They also rescue farm animals, such as when they took in 60 broiler chickens that were abandoned on the side of a highway on their way to a Brooklyn live market. Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to protect farm animals by encouraging a new awareness and understanding about farm animals.

WHAT THEY DO:

• Bring social awareness to the abuses industrial farm animals suffer
• Advocate for laws and policies to prevent animal suffering
• Educate millions about the effects of factory farming on our health and environment
• Reach out to legislators and businesses to bring about institutional reforms
• Rescue thousands of animals, placing them in sanctuaries or permanent adoptive homes

HOW WE CAN HELP: Throughout the duration of this issue, we’re collecting donations for this important charity to help protect farm animals from cruelty. To join our efforts, visit Farm Sanctuary, or mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Watkins Glen, New York, 14891. Include the fundraiser name, Mother Earth Living Gives Back, on the envelope or check, if you wish. It’s our goal to collect $2,500 for Farm Sanctuary.
