The Viva Vine: vol #2, no #4: September / October 1993
Good Folks -- Get To Know Them
Farm Sanctuary is sponsoring a fundraising Walk for Farm Animals on Sept. 26 (1993) at Noon
beginning at 72nd St. and Riverside Park in NYC. Farm Sanctuary operates 2 shelters (one on each
coast) for victims of factory farming. Its investigators routinely visit slaughterhouses,
stockyards and factory farms to document and expose abuses. Rescued farm animals are brought back
to their shelters hopefully to be adopted by compassionate humans. Support Farm Sanctuary by
pledging and/or walking on Sept. 26. The VivaVegie Society will definitely be there. Contact Dawn
Hernandez at 516/944-8166 for more information and a pledge packet.
