Snowstorms Kick Our Butts!
worst winter ever at WFAS.
just experienced a series of snow storms that were the worst the Hudson Valley/Catskill
Mountains has seen since the 90's. Almost 3 ft of snow fell on the sanctuary
last week--knocking out our power and internet and making everything we do on
the farm much more time-consuming and laborious. Snow plows, snow blowers, and
lots and lots of shoveling have been our M.O. for the past week.
The animals, sensibly, stay in their coops and barns during this kind of madness, keeping them warm, dry and
happy -- but that means cleaning
their living quarters more often and with a lot more difficulty. Please keep us
in mind through these difficult times, not only due to the snow but also the
drop in donations that we experience each year between the holidays and tax
don't forget about us and know that we need YOU to keep us going for the
animals. The largest part of our budget comes from compassionate people like you who make our important work for farmed animals possible -- caring for the 200+
who currently call WFAS home, plus our outreach efforts to raise awareness about the
suffering of farm animals in factory farms and abusive farming practices. We
need you! Please consider making a donation now in support of our work
us keep helping the most exploited and abused animals in the world -- farmed
