March for the Animals

Walter - March for Animals

Walter would like you to sign up to participate in the Tompkins County SPCA March for the Animals, which will be on Saturday, September 22. The March will start at the Cornell Vet School and end at Cornell Plantations, where there will be a band, BBQ, and more celebrations!

If you can’t walk, please sponsor us via our fundraising page or click on the March logo on the top right of the blog.

The money will help the SPCA with their mission of saving animals – it’s the biggest fundraiser of the year.

Animal Place Fundraiser

Animal Place, a farm animal sanctuary in Vacaville, CA, urgently needs to move in order to upgrade its facilities for the health and safety of its animals and to have more space to accommodate a larger number of rescues. Information about the move is available on their website here.

Roni (at left with one of the cows at Animal Place), one of the great people I’ve met on Etsy, runs Daisy Wares, and is a member of Vegan Etsy and Etsy for Animals. She donates a portion of her sales to Animal Place and is an untiring advocate for animals. This month, she, along with the Bay Area Vegetarians Group, is hosting a fundraiser to help raise money for the down payment on new land for Animal Place. (I wish I could go–it sounds like so much fun!)
For those of us, like myself, who are too far to attend the fundraiser, we can still help by donating vegan items to sell at the fundraiser or by donating money directly to Animal Place. If you are interested in donating an item, please let me know, and I will get you in touch with Roni.
This is a great organization that does so much good for the animals. Please help!
