Join Washington DC’s 2011 Walk for Farm Animals, sponsored by Farm Sanctuary, the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization on Saturday, October 15. Emily Deschanel, star of FOX’s hit show “Bones,” is serving as this year’s national Walk spokesperson. The Washington DC Walk is one of more than 35 fun, community-focused events to help farm animals taking place in cities throughout the U.S. and Canada this Fall.
For 25 years, Farm Sanctuary has rescued and provided sanctuary for abused farm animals, educated the public about their plight, and advocated on their behalf. The Walks bring together thousands of people from different backgrounds in cities across the U.S. and Canada to raise vital funds to support the organization’s life-saving work and promote kindness towards animals. Please join Farm Sanctuary on October 15 and take a stand against cruelty to animals!
