Benefitting Charity

The end-of-trip party ticket sales will benefit one of Kristin’s favorite non-profit organizations, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS).

Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary

In 2005 Kristin’s parents rescued a veal calf from a dairy farm just down the road from their home, in upstate NY. At just five days old Dylan was brought to WFAS where he remains to this day and has become one of the Farm’s (literally) biggest ambassadors. Dylan is a happy and healthy gentlemen who has effortlessly wooed the hearts of thousands of Sanctuary visitors.

WFAS’s mission is “the hands-on work of rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for farmed animal refugees—as well as educating the public about the horrific treatment of animals who are raised for food.” If you can, please donate generously.

Many people don’t realize how dramatically meat and dairy production in the US has changed over the past 50 years. Those childhood images of happy animals living on sunny, idyllic farms couldn’t be further from reality. Virtually all animals who are raised for food—or their products—live miserable lives in intensive confinement in dark, overcrowded facilities called “factory farms.” These operations emphasize high volume and profit with little regard for the environment or humane treatment of animals.

WFAS is driven by the simple philosophy that kindness and respect to animals is our moral duty and that all the creatures that share this earth are here with us and not for us. Like our faithful dogs and lap-sitting cats, farm animals are feeling individuals who deserve to be treated with compassion and to live free of fear and suffering. – WFAS
