Love love love this place. These guys do wonderful work. Rescuing and rehabilitation the "unwanted " animals left over from the animal feed lot industry. Such misery that is turned into triumph with a little patience and love. These animals are the lucky ones and are saved from a very cruel industry that needs to stop. I will continue to give my money and my time to this organization. Save a life, go vegan!
There aren't many charities that devote their time to rescuing farm animals and publicizing this cause. I am happy with this charity and wish there would be more groups that would rescue these poor animals.
My children and I are sponsers for Farm Sanctuary Animal Shelter by donating money to help them take care of the many animals they rescue from factory farming. We live in Sweden, but when we visited the US, we took a trip to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen and were given a tour of the Farm and even got to volunteer -- we got to clean out a duck swimming pool and feed apples to some huge pigs that are among the few who are allowed to live to grow to full size nowadays.
At Thanksgiving time Farm Sanctuary has a programme where you can sponser a turkey -- instead of eating one. There is so much more to eat than turkeys and by not eating meat, the food resources go so much further to help people have more to eat.
