For those interested in participating, here’s the 411 on the walk and Farm Sanctuary via its website:
Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary shelters in Watkins Glen, New York, and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming. The Walk for Farm Animals helps fund and raise awareness about these vital, education and advocacy efforts.
Walks occur throughout the country every fall – on or around October 2 – in honor of World Farm Animals Day. They are generally three to six miles in length (five to 10 kilometers) and held in public parks.
Here’s a list of dates and locations where the Walk for Farm Animals will be held…If there’s not one in your area, and you’d like to organise one, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
