The Activist-at-Large

When going out this summer, either in your own neighborhood or far away, please remember to take a few moments to raise awareness about farm animals. Simply keep some Farm Sanctuary restaurant cards in your purse, backpack or wallet. Order them now: force-feeding ducks for foie, cruel veal production, Wolfgang Puck restaurants and veg menu options (see links below this message). Give these cards to restaurant managers or leave them at establishments, as you travel out and about.

Email mailto:Campaign [at] FarmSanctuary [dot] org to let us know where you have distributed them and if you receive feedback from establishment proprietors.

Farm Animal of the Month: Jeremiah

Before arriving at Farm Sanctuary, Jeremiah lived in a pond in the busy shopping district of a San Francisco neighborhood, surrounded by noise and traffic. Completely blind, his life was very difficult. But thankfully, with the help of a kind woman who knew he deserved a better home, he found his way to our California Shelter. Here he is given the love and special care he needs to thrive, and he gives back to us in many ways as well. We love Jeremiah, and we know you will as well.

Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, we have worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and legislative actions, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Our shelters in Watkins Glen, NY and Orland, CA provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
