9 Ways to Give Back to the Animals Thursday, December 07, 2017 ‘Tis the season for giving! And there’s nothing better than a gift that keeps on giving. Your support gives the 380 rescued farmed animals at the Sanctuary, and the millions saved by our advocacy, a happy and warm holiday season. Here are nine ways you can give back to the Sanctuary this December. 1. Give the gift of a full belly. The animals still need enough hay to get through the winter ahead. 2. We welcomed many new faces to the Sanctuary this year! Sponsor one of our new rescues and provide him or her with food and care for one year. 3. We rely on the hard work of volunteers to make our daily operations possible, especially in the winter months! 4. Compassionate gifts for everyone on your list…without ever having to step foot in a mall. 5. Your gift will make twice the impact for farmed animals this holiday season. Donations are being matched up to $100,000! 6. Andy already has his two front teeth for Christmas, but there are still lots of other items on his wishlist! 7. Shop online through Amazon Smile and a percentage of the price of the items you purchase will be donated back to the Sanctuary! 8. Become a Woodstock Sanctuary member and you’ll receive discounts at your favorite vegan-friendly restaurants and shops, PLUS free admission for the 2018 visiting season! 9. Ask your employer if it matches donations! Many companies do and it’s a great way to double or even triple your impact for the animals.
