Brook Katz, a 32 year vegan, activist and advocate, is trying to obtain land to create a unique vegan animal sanctuary. In Florida, he found a huge need to help abandoned animals from being killed by shelters. He voluntarily started what has become the largest animal adoption event in Florida, the annual “Animal Adoption Fair” which has just completed it's 7th year. He has gotten over 2,000 animals adopted and has been granted his 501c3 status from the government, as a non-profit organization.
Brook works for free with charities creating vegan food for their events. He hosts and caters a FREE vegan buffet/lecture every month turning on thousands of people to delicious and healthy vegan food and the principles behind the vegan way of life. He has authored several vegan cookbooks, and has lectured and demonstrated the advantages of a vegan lifestyle, worldwide.
He has a unique idea that will need the support of the vegan community (as well as others) to make a reality. “Brookhaven Animal Sanctuary”.
His vision is to have a totally vegan animal sanctuary and supporting community. It will be unique in that it will only be accepting animals from rescues and shelters. Brook works with hundreds of rescues and shelters in South Florida and he sees that every one of them have animals that will never be adopted. These animals take up space, food, meds, funding, etc. that most of these facilities can't afford. His vision is to take all these animals and free up these rescues and shelters to be able to take in adoptable animals; whereby more animals can be saved. These “non-adoptable” animals would be able to live out their lives in comfort and dignity. In addition, the sanctuary would have it's own hospice with a full time live-in veterinarian. The vegan staff would also live on the sanctuary and he plans to also start a veterinary intern program. (This will provide extra care for the animals while teaching new vets about veganism). The plan is also to make this sanctuary as self-sustaining as possible. (alternative energy, it's own well, veganic gardens, etc.)
He need's your help to make this happen. He need's rural land (10 acres or more) in South Florida. He is asking for donations large and small. Everything will help! All donations made are tax deductible, and will go to the creation of this sanctuary, and to the costs of re-homing animals in South Florida at Brook's 'Animal Adoption Fair' - Animal Adoption Fair.
