What we're about

Santa Clara County Activists for Animals is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to reducing and eliminating the suffering of animals and to raising community awareness of animal issues. Our main focus is Santa Clara County, but we also participate in campaigns outside the county. We are motivated by compassion — we seek to prevent cruelty to all animals, especially those used for food, clothing, and entertainment. Our website for more of our activities and actions: http://www.sccaa.info/

We are looking for motivated volunteers to help either directly and on the street or at your desk to help in this end. While doing so, it is hoped, that new friends and fun networking results in more action and partnerships on behalf of the animals.

Trick or Treat! at Charlie's Acres

Needs a location

Trick or Treat! at Charlie's Acres will be reverse trick-or-treating where you’ll be in costume, but you’ll be the one giving treats to our rescued animal residents.

Watch us smash some pumpkins, see the animals devour them, and help us give our residents an all-around amazing day!

This event is open to all ages, and we’ll also send you home with your own vegan-friendly goodie bags.

The best news is that the proceeds from this event go directly towards the continued care of the 130+ rescued animals who call Charlie's Acres home!

Activities include:

• Costume Parade - Show off your costumes as you walk the sanctuary loop, saying hello to rescued animals.

• Animal Treats - Reverse the trick-or-treat tradition and hand out treats to rescued animals as you stop by each pasture.

• Goat Greeting - Hang out in the pasture with some of our goat or sheep residents.

• Pumpkin Smash - Watch the animals enjoy eating pumpkins tossed into their yards.

• Goodie bags - Don't leave without taking your gift bag of candy with you!
