Mission

Our mission is to rescue abused and neglected farmed animals, to restore them to health, and to provide them with a safe and loving forever home. In doing so, we hope to raise awareness about the plight of animals raised for food, and the benefits of a vegan diet for the animals, human health, and the environment. We are dedicated to spreading compassion and respect for all living beings.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Earth Day celebration with Beekman Library

We were the site asked last year to host the first Beekman Earth Day celebration. We hosted nearly 150 families from Beekman, NY and the surrounding towns. We have been asked to host the second Earth Day celebration this year. The program includes a discussion of the origins of the Earth Day celebration, threats to the environment and climate and how factory farming and peoples' food choices impact these issues. We provide take home materials on the topic and on the benefits of a vegan diet and how to start moving in that direction for families. The discussion is always interactive and is followed by a tour of the sanctuary and opportunities to visit up close and pat many of our rescued residents.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

This program is in early development. We are obtaining contact information from families with children of any age and are developing age appropriate zoom based animal club meetings. Organized by sanctuary co-founder and professor emeritus of psychology at The City College of New York, these age based meetings will encourage participants to talk about their favorite animals, what they think farm animals like to eat compared with their food choices, and what they know about farm animal treatment. Animal Club visiting days will be established during the summer in collaboration with parents and club members during which they can bring their favorite animals some healthy treats. Pre and post surveys will be administered to evaluate change in the child's diet, support of parents, change in parents views of appropriate child diets, and strength and persistence of compassion in the children.

Population(s) Served
