Mercy For Animals is visiting Sunrise Sanctuary (http://sunrisesanctuary.org/default.aspx) for a morning of fun and work with farmed animals on Sunday, March 11th! Sunrise Sanctuary is a non-profit animal welfare organization that provides a permanent home for over 80 unwanted, disabled, abused and neglected farmed animals. MFA features Sunrise Sanctuary in our award-winning documentary film Fowl Play (http://www.fowlplaymovie.com/), and founder Mindy received the MFA Hope Award in 2009 for her rescue work.

We are planning to help with some spring cleaning at the sanctuary. You may join in with the cleanup, just visit with the animals or, both! If you have never met a cow, pig, goat, chicken, horse or turkey, you will find it to be an amazing experience.

The handsome guy in the picture is Wesley, a rescued "veal calf" who now weighs around a ton and a half. Wesley and his friends at the sanctuary love whole wheat bread, apples, carrots and, romaine lettuce if you would like to bring something to feed them.

Feel free to contact me (Kevin O) with any questions.

I hope to see some of you there!
