2 Beloved Turkey Pals Turn 5 Years Old

Maybe that doesn't sound old to you but these two handsome fellas have beaten the odds for the lifespan of a commercial turkey. Typically killed for food at just 18 weeks of age, these two "toms" (males), have remained the best of friends since their rescue together in 2005.

Often these poor genetically-altered birds succumb to heart attacks and crippling leg problems -- their organs and bones can hardly support the freakishly enhanced weight. But with their special diet and fondness of following caretakers around -- great exercise! -- these turkey friends will hopefully have many more birthdays to come. Visit BOONE'S pageor ALFONSO'S pageto get up close and personal.
A Sweet Haven in New Haven!

  100+ people crammed into New Haven's Fuel Coffee last Friday for the All-You-Can-Eat Dessert Benefit. 
This Strawberry "Cheese" Cake was one of forty desserts served.

Over $2000 was raised in ticket sales, and guests got to enjoy such exotic delectables as Coconut Line Cupcakes and Chocolate Pumpkin Tarts -- all100% vegan. Many, many, many thanks to our good friends Lourdes Jovel & Anthony Acock for putting the whole thing together, and the other brave volunteer bakers -- Amber Plaut, Kim Osborne, and Katie Imes! Wow, it feels good to be loved, say our 200+ rescued animals!


WasherA wonderful supporter recently noticed a large pile of, ahem, poopy towels from our animal infirmary and our aging washer/dryer struggling to keep up. He asked if we were in the market for a new set, and a week later we had brand-new, mega-capacity, energy efficient models installed -- and the difference is night and day (or, poopy and sparkling clean)! 

You, too, can swoop in and instantly improve the lives of the animals, or the staff helping them. We're in immediate need of a serious lawn mower, a truck or van with towing capacity, a PC laptop, LCD computer screens, and more. >>VISIT OUR WISH LIST PAGE<<


The Best Alternative Fuel Can Be Found at the End of Your Fork

The decisions you make about the food you eat have a global impact -- literally.  Scientists have been quibbling lately about which economic sectors cause more climate change, but the simple fact is the global factory farming systems are profoundly polluting the air and water, and affecting human health and world hunger.  

Today, Friday 4/23, and Saturday 4/24 we'll have a table at the massive EarthFair in NYC at Grand Central Station -- come find us there, or if you live elsewhere please check out the Environment Section of our website.
