In 1986, Farm Sanctuary was founded and since then has become the largest farm animal protection organization in the US. Gene Baur has since then worked tirelessly to support, promote, educate, and emphasize on the need to protect animals, especially farm animals from cruel and inhumane treatment.
One way of promoting the ideas of the Farm Sanctuary is the Walk for Farm Animals.
“This fall, join thousands of compassionate people in cities across the United States and Canada for the 2014 Walk for Farm Animals.
Fun, family-friendly, and effective, the Walk raises vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s lifesaving rescue, education, and advocacy work while also increasing public awareness of farm animal suffering. Each event will offer a unique schedule, which may include speakers, live music, vegan food, raffle prizes, face painting, and costume contests.
By participating in the 2014 Walk for Farm Animals, you will be joining a movement for a kinder world. To register for a Walk in your area or to participate online through the “Sleep In for Farm Animals” virtual Walk, please visit walkforfarmanimals.org today. Together we can change hearts and raise funds for farm animals!
We hope to see you at the 2014 Walk for Farm Animals. If you can’t join the Walk, please consider making a gift of support. Every dollar we raise helps us rescue and advocate for more animals.
Will you walk with us? Register today!”
The Walks for Farm Animals will take place from September through November all around the US. The dates can be found on the website, together with registration details.
