Geese Deprived of Swimming Water
for a Decade Now Living Happy (and Wet) at WFAS!
When found, these two female geese lived with hundreds of chickens
in a small, filthy, overcrowded coop and tiny yard on a meat and dairy
farm in Upstate NY. A caring woman who worked at the farm inquired about them and was
told that they had been dumped there over 10 years ago. Since then, they'd been cooped
up with the chickens with no access to a body of water. Ducks and geese
need water to bathe and swim, this is necessary to keep them both happy
and healthy. >>READ THE HAPPY ENDING
Sean Lennon inspired by his visit to WFAS!
Sean Lennon and Fern. Photo: Deborah Degraffenreid Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl performed a concert benefit for WFAS on August 21st as The GOASTT (The Ghost of A Saber Tooth Tiger) and they were AMAZING! Thanks to them, Amy Helm, Jonathan Donahue, Juju Stulbach & Chris Root (Undersea Poem) for lending their musical talents on behalf of the animals!
After the show, Sean wrote to Jenny saying
"I can't thank you enough for allowing us to play at your sanctuary. It was really one of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had 'on the road,' and I've had a few, believe me.... your sanctuary has made us wonder about how we can become better model citizens for animal rights."
