Farm Sanctuary Walk for Farm Animals- Register Today!

azvegan June 12th, 2012 No Comments

Getting sick of being inside while its 110 degrees outside?  Looking for a way to use your time to help farm animals?  We have a great idea…start sending emails, posting on FB and Twitter, and start getting sponsors and raising money for Farm Sanctuary.

The Walk for Farm Animals raises vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s lifesaving work and brings together thousands of people to change hearts and minds about farm animals. Will you join us in Phoenix to support compassion for all?

Walk and registration details are available below.  Hope to see you in October!

azvegan June 12th, 2012 No Comments

LEAFLETERS NEEDED: Ringling Bros. Circus coming to Phx.

Please make plans to join Animal Advocates of Arizona to distribute educational leaflets to circus patrons with encouragement to instead patronize fun, humane family entertainment, rather than the abusive animal circus. The time commitments are very short and you’ll be making a direct, positive difference for these animals. We’ll be distributing leaflets before eight of Ringling’s shows from June 27th to July 1st. We are most grateful for any help you can offer.

No need to bring materials, all leaflets (and ice cold water!) will be provided. For anyone who has not leafleted before, we encourage you to come on out! We’ll be there every step of the way to help you help the animals ~ keep in mind that there was always a first time for every seasoned leafleter.
