Today 20% of proceeds from sales of my 21-Day Vegan Blueprint are going to be donated to one of my favorite animal welfare organizations, Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS) in Saugerties New York. Yes, Pay It Forward is back for 2015!
Since 2001 CAS has rescued and “provided a safe haven for over 2,000 desperately needy farm animals and has found loving homes for many of those creatures.”
When you visit CAS you’ll find a 110-acre farm home to pigs, horses, cows, goats, chickens, turkey, sheep, and other sweet animals. Though these animals have been rescued from abusive circumstances, their spirits begin to soar when they make it to CAS.
In addition to rescuing needy animals from around the state of New York, and sometimes further, CAS makes it their mission to open the farm to visitors and educate the public on the sentience of the animals who often end up on their plates. By recognizing that these animals, like us, are able to feel love, fear, and joy, we are able to expand our circle of compassion to include them. CAS also offers compassionate cuisine cooking classes––I’ve taught a few––so that people can taste how delicious vegan food is, and learn how to make it themselves.
