UPDATE: FUNDRAISER IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION.
On June 5-9, Save Movement groups all around the world are holding actions called "The 5 Day Save" in which activists hold vigils at slaughterhouses for 5 days to bring attention to the plights of farmed animals and to raise money for farmed animal sanctuaries all over the world.
North Carolina Farmed Animal Save is part of the worldwide effort, and we will hold vigils at 7 slaughterhouses in 5 days. We are raising money for 5 very important sanctuaries for NC animals. We also want to acknowledge that there are more sanctuaries in our area that are wonderful and deserving of donations, and we had to make tough decisions about who to include for this event.
Our 5 sanctuaries are:
+ Carolina Waterfowl Rescue
"Mission: Providing medical treatment and care to orphaned or injured wild birds and other animals - Rehoming of domestic and non native birds to keep them from being placed in the wild. -Providing education to the public about the needs of waterfowl and how to co exist with wildlife."
+ Cotton Branch Farm Animal Sanctuary
"At Cotton Branch Farm Animal Sanctuary we provide a safe haven for abandoned, abused, neglected, and elderly farm animals. While there are many shelters and rescue organizations for animal companions such as cats and dogs, and wildlife, there is a lack of sanctuary for farm animals, who make up 98% of the animals killed in the US each year. We exist to help those animals."
+Triangle Chance for All
"Triangle Chance for All‘s mission is to rescue farmed animals who end up in county shelters in the Triangle region of North Carolina to assure they do not go back into the for-profit agricultural system. We will endeavor to provide or secure them with permanent sanctuary while we work to end the exploitation of non-human animals by promoting a vegan lifestyle."
+ Ziggy's Refuge
"The goals of Ziggy's Refuge is to not only give a happy home to farm animals in need but perhaps more importantly be an advocate for a vegan lifestyle."
+ Trew Love Rescue & Sanctuary
"Our mission is to rescue and provide sanctuary to abandoned, neglected, and abused animals."
All funds raised by NCSave during the 5 Day Save will be split equally between these 5 sanctuaries.
