As the leaves change and autumn rolls in, we’re still “pig crazy” here at our New York Shelter – our efforts rehabilitating the Iowa pigs and planning for their futures continue at a steady pace. For many of the pigs, the months ahead will see them off to loving, forever homes throughout the country, so stay tuned for more details about their travels and experiences!

And speaking of autumn and pigs … we want to invite you to join us for our Party for the Pigs on October 18 in Washington, D.C. A benefit to honor the Midwest flood survivors and raise the critical funds we need to cover the costs of their rescue, daily care, rehabilitation, and nationwide placement, this party is the must-attend charity event of the season. Here are some highlights:

*Special guest appearances include: Farm Sanctuary President and Co-founder Gene Baur, actress Persia White and musician Nellie McKay

*Musical performance by singer/songwriter and Broadway actress, Nellie McKay

*Beer and wine bar and vegan hors d’oeuvres from some of D.C.’s best restaurants

*Silent auction of exciting farm animal-inspired items

Get more details and RSVP to reserve your space by calling 607-583-2225 ext. 221 or visiting our Party for the Pigs Web site. If you can’t attend, but would still like to support the pigs, please make a donation today. Thank you for making a difference for farm animals. We hope to see you in D.C.!
