Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Education, Educational Services, Food

Mission: Located in the New York’s Hudson Valley, Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS) is a 110-acre haven for horses and farm animals rescued from cruelty and neglect. In addition to emergency rescue, CAS provides innovative programs that educate the public about the sentience of farm animals, and the devastating impacts of agribusiness and institutionalized cruelty on animals, people, and the planet. CAS offers weekend and special group tours, vegan cooking classes, speaking engagements, a summer day camp for kids, and a host of compassionate programming year round at its primarily solar-powered Sanctuary. Lodging is available on site at The Homestead, a beautifully-renovated 1813 farmhouse. Since 2001, CAS has rescued over 3,000 animals, and has worked in tandem with law enforcement to bring animal abusers to justice.

Target demographics: rescue and rehabilitate farm animals and horses, to advocate for the abolition of institutionalized cruelty to animals through education, and to help people adopt a cruelty-free lifestyle.

Geographic areas served: the United States

Programs: emergency rescue of needy animals, weekend and special group tours, vegan cooking classes, speaking engagements, a summer day camp for kids, and a host of compassionate programming year round.

One of my top ten charities. Considering how few sanctuaries exist for animals that usually end up being eaten it is over state the importance of this organization.
