Today, we are one month away from the Los Angeles Walk for Farm Animals!  We’re getting pretty excited and thanks to our newest team member, Jackie, we are getting even closer to our goal!  We only need $185 more to reach our goal of $500 and we can’t do it without your help.

If you’re wondering why you should support us, I have 5 reasons for you and I’m going to share one with you each week until the walk.

Why You Should Support Keepin It Kind in the Walk For Farm Animals, Reason #1

Courtesy of Farm Sanctuary

“On the day National Shelter Director Susie Coston discovered the calves, she watched truck after truck filled with these baby animals drive up to the auction yard. The newborns, some not even a day old yet, were visibly frenzied and could be heard bawling for their mothers. But while all Susie wanted to do was comfort them, their terror was only met with frustration from the workers who forcefully unloaded and moved them into holding pens by hitting them with canes or shocking them with cattle prods.”

Three of these calves were noticeably ill, weak, and unable to stand.  Susie stepped in and rescued these three babies and rushed them to a hospital where they would receive emergency treatment and be nursed back to health.  They now reside healthfully and happily at Farm Sanctuary.  Continue reading about these calves’ rescue and recovery…

This is just a small sample of the work that Farm Sanctuary does.  The Walk for Farm Animals allows them to raise money so they can keep doing this wonderful work.  If you need even more convincing, you can read about Why I Am Walking for Farm Animals.  I hope you’ll consider supporting us (even $5 or $10 helps!)!
