Vancouver Animal Rights Campaigns (VARK)

Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Events for September 25th – 26th 2010

Walk For Farm Animals and Gimme Shelter

It has been an extra busy month in the world of animal advocacy, from the STOP UBC Animal Research Campaign to Vegan Outreach all over the lower mainland’s Universities and Colleges. Thousands of brochures have been handed out to new and eager students inviting them to explore the wonders of exchanging tofu for intensive farming practices.

However, there are two very special events happening this week-end that I would like to remind you of.

On Sunday there will be three Keynote Speakers at the Roundhouse: Eleanor Boyle on Sustainable Food Choices, Rex Wyler from Greenpeace and Gene Baur of Farm Sanctuary will be speaking at a Fundraiser entitled “gimme shelter.”

Date: Sunday Sept 26th
Time: 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.

The Walk For Farm Animals has this mission statement:

Farm Sanctuary works to end cruelty to farm animals and promotes compassionate living through rescue, education and advocacy. We envision a world where the violence that animal agriculture inflicts upon people, animals and the environment has ended, and where instead we exercise values of compassion.
