Day Trip visit to Farm Sanctuary
We will carpool down to visit the rescued animals at Farm Sanctuary in
beautiful Watkins Glen, NY. $15 per person covers gas/tolls and
admission. Snacks are for sale in the gift shop, but bringing a bag
lunch is recommended. We will likely take the long way home through
Ithaca, and get vegan pizza. Bring extra money if you want pizza. Wear
boots or sneakers for muddy areas on the farm.
Information on the sanctuary can be found here: Email alcoon (at) to reserve your seat or if you have a vehicle and would like to help the carpool.

Volunteers needed at adoptathon

poking or harassing the cats, and bringing cats from cages into visiting
room to visit potential adopters. Any two hour slot during this all-day
adoptathon would be appreciated to give adoption organizers a lunch
break. Email alcoon (at) if you want to volunteer.
When: 9am-7pm on Saturday, July 14th

Foster home needed for neutered male cat
the cats that SARO members are fostering, a two are in need of an
alternative foster home. They are both neutered male tuxedo cats. They
are very friendly and loving toward people, but the prefer to live
without other cats. So, we are looking for preferably two separate
foster homes to take these boys in. Because adoption rates are so slow
at this time, especially for adult cats, we would prefer the foster home
be able to care for them for at least three months so they can settle
down until adoption rate pick up again in the fall.  Food and supplies can be supplied if needed. Email alcoon (at) if you are able to help one of these boys.  You can view Dom’s
