Catskill Animal Sanctuary Work Party

The Albany Vegan Network is coordinating a volunteer work day at Catskill Animal Sanctuary on Saturday, July 12th from 10 am - 3 pm. 

Farm chores may include painting fences/barns; landscaping/raking; helping to unload supplies; pasture cleaning. Participants should be physically fit. Please wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty; sturdy footwear is key (work or hiking boots; NO FLIP FLOPS). Bring work/gardening gloves, sunscreen, hat, snacks/lunch and plenty of water.

We could carpool to the farm and could meet at the Target parking lot in Colonie at 8:30 am. We will split the cost of the gas and tolls.

Also, if anyone is interested in having dinner in the Catskill region, we could plan that, as well. Please respond about your interest in dinner.

    Amrit, I like your idea of us riding together. Shelley had to back out for the ride to the sanctuary. How much is it going to cost for each of us for gas & tolls?

    Car maintenance has become an issue...got to get oil changed/tires rotated FIRST THING tomorrow morning...oil life is at 5% so it is high on my list of priorities....thought I could get in tonight, but it's not happening. However, I WILL meet you all down at the Sanctuary, and while I CAN'T give anyone a ride down (sorry Cindy), I can offer rides to 2 people for the ride back to Albany. I am not planning on staying for dinner.

  • Rudy R.

    Hi is there like an afternoon shift?

    July 8

    • Amrit S.

      We are only working until 3 pm, so it would be optimal for people to arrive at the start time of 10.

      July 8

    • Rudy R.

      Ok gotcha :)

  • Cindy A.

    I am interested in going to dinner after we get done working. Who can I ride with? Is Target in Colonie at Northway Mall? Ok, 8:30 it is bright and early!

    • Amrit S.

      Yes, Target in Colonie is in the old Northway Mall.

  • Cindy A.

    Out of the two restaurants, Luna 61 sounds good to me!

    I would like to join for dinner. I will meet you all at CAS as I will be coming from the Berkshires.

    1 · July 8

  • Amrit S.

    Hey everyone, I'll be sending out a formal email today with more details but I have made a reservation at Luna 61 in Tivoli at 4:30 for dinner. Please let me know as soon as possible if you plan to join us for dinner after we are done working. :)

    July 8

    • Amrit S.

      Also, we are only going to be working there, as a group, until 3 pm...so the closer you can come to 10, the better.

      July 8

    • Amy W.

      I will be joining you for dinner. See you at 10 on Saturday!

  • Amrit S.

    Please let me know if you did not receive the email that I sent out today...I seem to be having issues with meetup today. :)

    if anyone needs a later start Abe and I plan to leave Albany at 1130, and can carpool. Hit me up if interested!

    July 8

  • Michelle

    I'm so excited - not only will this be my first meet-up but also my first visit to CAS! If there's space in a vehicle would I be able to carpool with someone? I've never been and don't want to get myself lost...if not no big deal :D

    • Michelle

      I also should note that while I am planning on being there, my RSVP is slightly tentative as I'm expecting a baby niece or nephew within the coming days, so it's all going to depend on when he/she decides to make his/her appearance!

      1 · July 8

  • Cindy A.

    I would like to be able to ride with someone, thank you. I have had a hard time finding this place in the past. Please save a space for me! Thanks again!

    1 · July 3

  • sheila f.

    Abe and I will probably get there after noon. My first visit to CAS!

    This was a highlight of my last summer's activities. Have to work this coming Saturday. Have a great day!!

    July 3

  • Amrit S.

    Any thoughts on where you'd like to dine? :)

    June 30

    • Amy W.

      Two ideas: Luna 61 (luna61.com) in Tivoli (but it might be on the expensive side) and Karma Road (karmaroad.net) which is good and affordable but mostly lunch items like sandwiches as opposed to hot entrees, and seating is somewhat limited. These are just ideas; I don't know much else in the area and am flexible if there's other options!

      July 2

  • Amy W.

    I would be interested in dinner!

    1 · June 23

  • Cindy A.

    I vote for raking, painting fences and barns. I could also help with pasture cleaning. It would not be much different than cleaning my cats litter boxes. All animals need to be clean up after! Also, dinner afterwards sounds great! I am going here for orientation tomorrow from 11-1pm. I am really looking forward to it!
