>This past weekend was a a busy one for SARO. Okay really it was Saturday that was super busy for SARO.
Saturday morning, we hit the paved trails of Onondaga Park in Liverpool for the annual Walk For Farm Animals. SARO was joined by more than thirty walkers who walked for about an hour. We got a little exercise and helped raise money for Farm Sanctuary. Farm Sanctuary in case you hadn’t heard is a national farm animal rescue organization based out of Watkins Glen, NY. In Watkins Glen they have a 175-acre farm where animals come to spend their remaining years after being rescued from abuse or neglect.
This month SARO is planning a carpool-trip to Farm Sanctuary on Saturday, October 17th, just weeks before they close this year’s touring season. The carpool cost $5.00 (gas for the drivers) and the tour is $3.00. Please email info[AT]syracuseanimalrights.com if you are interested in joining us.
After the Walk For Farm Animals, SARO then participated in a protest against KFC. SARO has been doing KFC protests off and on for a few years now. This year we changed locations from the Erie Blvd location to the Butternut St and Park St location. This protest is in support of PETA, who called for all KFC locations nation wide to protested at until KFC changes their methods. Please see PETA’s Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign for more ways you can help and for more information on why you shouldn’t eat at KFC.
