This walk is an integral part of the fundraising efforts of Farm Sanctuary to protect and care for neglected and abused farm animals. Since their founding in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has combated the abuses of factory farming and encouraged awareness and understanding about these animals. Now, Farm Sanctuary is the nation's largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization. Thousands of animals have been rescued and cared for in their sanctuaries in Watkins Glen, New York; Orland, California; and the Los Angeles area. They educate millions of people about the plight of farm animals and the effects of factory farming on our health and the environment. We advocate for laws and policies to prevent suffering and promote compassion. Farm Sanctuary is committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate living through rescue, education, and advocacy.
Every single dollar you raise will go to helping these farm animals and to supporting Farm Sanctuary. Everyone is encouraged to partake in the fundraising effort by asking friends, family, and the general public for donations for your walk. At the $100 donation level, you will receive a Farm Sanctuary t-shirt to wear at the walk (or after).
