Inner World of Farm Animals Book Cover
Inside Job
The Inner World of Farm Animals: Their Amazing Social, Emotional and Intellectual Capacities by Amy Hatkoff; introduction by Jane Goodall

In researching her fabulous new book, Amy Hatkoff made our sanctuary her very first stop -- and director Jenny Brown's interviews are peppered throughout!  Amy tells remarkable stories about the intelligence and emotionality of farm animals, both here and at other sanctuaries around the country. We're especially proud of WFAS volunteer Bob Esposito's exquisite photographs, reproduced large and in full glory.

You can find the book on Abrams Books or Amazon, or at our gift store when you visit.

Swine Flu Linked to Factory Farming
In the human race's quest to outsmart Mother Nature, guess who always wins? Aside from the blatant cruelties, intensive confinement systems used to raise chickens, pigs and other animals have long been a suspected breeding ground for all sorts of little-understood viruses.  This must-read article by the inimitable Dr. Michael Gregor traces our current pandemic through the last decade.

Are you at risk visiting our pigs? Don't be silly!
Our pigs don't do any traveling beyond state lines and so you are perfectly safe to visit them.
Cookies
Cookie Monsters
The Lazy Dog Cookie Co. bakes, ships and packages their natural human-grade dog treats from their facility in Upstate New York. They are a small wholesale based company committed to personal service. Their entire product line is baked fresh daily and is wheat-, corn- and soy-free!

The wonderful couple at the helm of this fabulous bakery are launching a new retail website that will focus on giving back to animal organizations.  Each month they will donate a large portion of their profits back to a selected organization--and we are honored to be chosen as their first recipients! So buy your pooches a treat they will love and help WFAS care for farm animals in need at the same time. Thanks Lazy Dog!
