Farm Sanctuary E-News & Action Alert

Urge Wolfgang Puck to Stop the Suffering
Wolfgang Puck is supporting the unnecessary pain and suffering of calves by selling crated veal. Although he has repeatedly been informed about the inhumane treatment of calves who are tethered in crates for their entire lives to produce white veal, Mr. Puck continues to serve the product in his chain of restaurants.
Please urge Mr. Puck to remove cruel veal from the menu.

Turkey Nursery
Our New York Shelter set up a turkey nursery to care for over a dozen rescued baby turkeys. Several of the turkeys have been severely debeaked- each year thousands of baby birds die from pain and stress of this horrible mutilation. Sadly, four of the turkeys could not be saved...and the others will continue to need special "nursery" care to survive. You can help care for these special babies too by becoming a monthly sponsor.


Austria Passes Hen Protection
Austria has joined Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K. in banning the use of cruel battery cages on egg farms. Battery cages, stacked one on top of another inside giant warehouses, are prevalent on modern egg farms. These wire cages are so small that the hens crammed inside can barely move, much less stretch their wings. The European Union, of which Austria is a member, is phasing out battery cages by 2012, while the Austrian legislation goes into effect in 2005. Full story.


A "Sanctuary" for Dads This Father's Day
Looking for a special way to say, "thank you" this Father's Day? Give dad a relaxing retreat at Farm Sanctuary. Overnight cabin guests enjoy a special tour of the farm (and a continental vegan breakfast in New York). Dads are welcome to volunteer on the farm for the total "sanctuary experience!" More information on our New York Bed & Breakfast and our Country Cabin in California.
