Central PA’s First VegFest Was a Huge Success!

Lancaster, Pennsylvania is famous for its Amish citizens and its farmland.

Growing up in Lancaster, it felt like a small town, in that everyone knew everyone and everyone that lived in Lancaster was born… Read more »

We attended our very first Mother’s Day street fair and it was a great success for the animals! We had our first sunny day in weeks and it was absolutely perfect out.

How I Became An Animal Activist

I saw videos online of how the trainers punish the elephants with bullhooks and whips if they were to do the tricks incorrectly or not comply to… Read more »

Turkeys

Season’s greetings! Let’s compare…

Galgos. Most people don’t know what these animals are and have never heard of them. They are animals in Spain that are used for hunting. The process of breeding, training and using them is egregious. They are bred by breeders in large numbers, with no regulations. The hunters go to these breeders and pick out… Read more »

The Kapparot, a customary Jewish atonement ritual, is set to begin the weekend of October 8th in preparation for Yum Kippur. It is a ritual involving chickens that are used as sacrifices to… Read more »
