Sanctuary Love!

by Britt Janssen | June 28, 2019

A s you all know, running a sanctuary is a labor of love. So when we meet like-minded individuals we get so enthusiastic to support each other’s mission, learn more about their animals in need and have a natural urge to spread the word about one another.

Woodstock Farm Sanctuary’s June Jamboree

Last weekend my mom, Yvonne, & I went to Woodstock Farm Sanctuary in New York for their June Jamboree / yearly summer party, to raise awareness and support for their animals.

We spent the day enjoying delicious, award-winning vegan food trucks and booths, amazing guest speakers, and even vegan-and animal-themed tattoos by the artists from Gristle Tattoo in Brooklyn (no we didn’t get tattoos but enjoyed seeing the action). We did, however, meet many of Woodstock’s 380 rescued cows, pigs, goats, turkeys and more! See Yvonne with rescued gentle giant steer, Caesar.

We also met, Gene Baur – President & Co-Founder of the Farm Sanctuary who was being interviewed by Jasmine & Mariann from ‘Our Hen House’, the famous Podcast that endeavors to end animal exploitation! This compassionate and informative interview will be available for the public on the ‘OHH’ website in August. We were over the moon that we met Gene, as we recently adopted Tallulah, our newest Scottish Highland cow, from the Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY. And yes, we gushed over how well she is doing at JP Farm Animal Sanctuary and Gene as well as so many kind guests and staff from Woodstock were happy to hear more about Tallulah and our other furry residents.

It was truly wonderful and is always inspiring to see how many caring people there are that want to help farmed animals in need. Thank you to all whom we met at the Jamboree and those who are reading this right now! None of our sanctuaries could do it without you!
