Show your compassion this Thanksgiving by supporting animals at your local panjrapols!

Animal sanctuaries in the US, like panjrapols in India, protect, feed, and provide medical care to farm animals.  They

  • Rescue animals such as cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chicken, turkeys and rabbits that would have been killed for food
  • Educate people and promote vegetarianism
  • Support laws that reduce animal suffering
  • During events such as Thanskgiving they heighten awareness of animal slaughter and hold events to instead support these animals

If you’d like to help, you can  

 

  • Visit them in person
    • Animal Place is in Grass Valley, northern CA.
    • Harvest Home Sanctuary is near Stockton, CA
    • Farm Sanctuary is in Watkins Glen, NY and Orland, CA.
    • THere are many other worthy organizations throughout the US but our familiarity is more with the ones in CA
  • You can send a check or donate online directly to the organization.
