Bakesale, cats and rats.

Meeting Day Changed
At the meeting last week, the subject of a better meeting day was discussed. It was decided that Mondays at 7pm are the best time for SARO to hold general interest meetings. We hope this works well and for anyone who still cannot attend meetings, please help out at any of the upcoming events!

SARO General Interest Meeting
When: Every Monday (except X-Mas eve) at 7pm for the Fall 2012 semester
Where: Marshall Hall room 110

SARO Vegan Bake Sale
SARO will be hosting another day trip visit to Farm Sanctuary to visit the rescued animals and to support the sanctuary. Details on the trip will be announced shortly. To reach that goal, SARO will run a bake sale to cover gas and the tour fee. Help by baking and delivering your baked goods the morning of the bake sale, or volunteering to sit at the table and sell the baked goods. Bakes goods can also be left on the porch at 530 Clarendon St. the night before for inclusion in the bake sale. Make sure to leave a note with your contact info so we can return your Tupperware!
What: Vegan bake sale( all baked goods contain no dairy, eggs or other animal products)
Where: in the front entrance Lobby of Marshall Hall on SUNY ESF campus
When: From 9am-2pm Monday, September 17th

Rescued rat needs a home
A Syracuse Animal Rights Organization volunteer is currently fostering a 1-2 year old male hooded(black and white) rat. He was surrendered into foster care due to aggression toward his cage mate. He is a very well socialized male rat, who enjoys human attention. There is a $3 adoption fee per rat to help cover supplies used for the care of this rat. A phone interview is required to determine potential adopters have adequate housing and a plan for the last 2-3 years of their lives. Contact Amber at if you are interested in adopting.

SARO cat foster program
SARO is attempting to assist the low cost spay and neuter clinic Spay and Neuter Syracuse (SANS) with the abandoned cats who were just left carriers in the parking lot. There are different colors, sexes, and temperaments, and they would all love to be in a foster home instead of living in a medical space that is not prepared to house cats. If you live off campus(dorms do not allow animals) and would like to foster a cat or two for the semester, email Amber at Supplies such as litter boxes, food and litter can be provided if needed.
