Walk For Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary
Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary will be participating in this year's Holly's Hope 4th Annual Walk for Ontario's Farm Sanctuaries on August 28th, 2016.
Our goal is to raise $5,000.
Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary is Ontario's oldest farm sanctuary and has rescued hundreds of animals from situations of abuse and neglect and has prevented hundreds more from going to the slaughterhouse. Siobhan and Peter Poole run Cedar Row along with their two children, Patrick & Cicada, and a dedicated group of volunteers.
Not only do we provide a permanent home for nearly 80 animals but we also foster animals and find them loving homes. If we can't take in animals due to being at capacity, we always strive to help find animals in need of a home even if we can't provide one directly at the sanctuary.
In 2015, we rescued and placed into safe homes,
18 pot bellied pigs
84 battery hens
17 backyard hens
D'Arcy the pig
All of this comes at a great cost, both financially and emotionally.
We will be walking to raise awareness about the plight of farmed animals: the abuses they endure, their hazard to human health, and their environmental impact. We seek to gain support and compassionate treatment for farmed animals.
Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary provides relief and care to sick, injured, distressed and ill-fated foster animals while tending to the needs of the sanctuary’s permanent farm animal residents. Your contribution supports these efforts and allows us the ability to continue to make a difference in each one of these animals’ lives. Your donations help us provide: straw, hay, feed and supplements; veterinary care; general repairs and upkeep to barns and shelters; new fencing and gating (as required) and so much more.
Although Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary promotes veganism, we welcome and encourage all people (vegan, vegetarian, and non-vegetarian) to visit our sanctuary. Our desire is that one day we will witness a world that is free from animal use, consumption and exploitation. Through work visits, open houses and participating in public awareness events, we have brought hundreds of like-minded individuals together, many of whom have formed long-lasting friendships and have now dedicated their lives towards reaching one goal – compassion and justice for all animals.
We have been rescuing farmed animals in need for 17 years and will continue to do so for as long as we are able. Will you help us reach our goal? Any amount is helpful and appreciated.
Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary
We can't thank those enough who donated to our GoFundMe campaign; you are truly wonderful people and we are forever grateful for your kindness, especially during a tough time at our sanctuary. We were very pleased to reach our goal.
Thank-you also to those who organized the walk, especially Sharon DiGenova. It was great to spend an afternoon around like-minded people who care deeply for the plight of farmed animals.
Finally, thank-you to those who walked with us; Sammy, Tara, Mel, & Don. We got exercise and we were able to help spread a compassionate message at the same time.
