Girls Gone (Hog) Wild Author: Doug Abel | Sunday, August 15, 2010 | No comments Earlier this year, Kara Mergl and Angela Di Toro of New York City visited a small organization dedicated to the rescue, safety, and humane care of farm animals — namely us! They were impressed with how staff at WFAS works tirelessly to ensure the well-being of farm animals who have been abused, abandoned, or taken in by individuals who simply did not provide the proper environment for a farm animal. It costs a hefty $1200 a day to run WFAS. The cost includes: operation of the farm, administering care for and feeding the animals, and, in large part, covering medical expenses for all ill and injured animals brought to the farm. This gave the dynamic duo an idea — why not raise funds for the farm, and as a “matching” donation offer to volunteer a certain amount for the bux raised! So for every $150 raised through this special link over the next three months, you will send these girls from NYC to work for ONE hour on the farm. So, help support a GREAT cause, and see these ladies go from stilettos to stalls! Over the next several months, join these two girls from NYC by following their blog and watch as they learn more about WFAS, farm animal rescue, and – you guessed it – mucking stalls.
