JOANNA KRUPA ADOPTS PIG FROM FARM SANCTUARY

Joanna Krupa




Joanna Krupa is helping animals this holiday season.



Joanna took time out at Farm Sanctuary’s shelter in Acton, California to visit some of her favorite animals, including Junip Sydney, whom she has “adopted” for the holidays as part of Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Farm Animal Program. If you’re still searching for the perfect present for that special someone, please consider Adopt a Farm Animal! For a one-time donation of $30, you can symbolically adopt one of three special Farm Sanctuary rescued residents, Maggie goat, Junip Sydney pig, or Templeton rooster. A gift sponsorship not only provides food and shelter for a needy farm animal — it creates a lasting bond between the adopter and the animal!

ADOPT HERE.

FARM SANCTUARY GALA @ BEVERLY WILSHIRE HOTEL

Emily Deschanel



Farm Sanctuary (FarmSanctuary.org), with co-chairs, Tracey Stewart and Emily Deschanel, will host their annual Gala at the renowned Beverly Wilshire Hotel on November 12th to celebrate 30 years of rescue, education and advocacy for farm animals, the largest population of abused animals on Earth. Farm Sanctuary, with a 26 acre Los Angeles area shelter and sanctuaries in Orland, CA and Watkins Glen, NY, works to educate people nationwide about farm animal abuse and the adverse effects of factory farming on our health and environment. Jon and Tracey Stewart will also be opening a location at their New Jersey farm in Spring 2017.



Comedian Kevin Nealon will host the evening, featuring many honorees, including Kat Von D who will receive the “Compassion in Action Award.” Crossroads Restaurant will be presented with the “Inspiration Award,” among other surprises.



A favorite charity of celebrities like Martha Stewart, Ryan Gosling, Ellen DeGeneres, and James Franco, as well as Jon Stewart, Farm Sanctuary is expecting a star-studded turnout at their 30th Anniversary Gala. The evening will feature a 100% plant-based dinner with favorites made using Gardein products, live entertainment and a farmer’s market style gift station to encourage guests to cut down on waste and take home the products they will use most.



Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder Gene Baur, who was recently selected by Oprah Winfrey to be a part of her SuperSoul 100 and who TIME magazine calls “the conscience of the food movement,” is a native Angelino, growing up in the Hollywood Hills. As a nod to his days traveling across the country selling veggie dogs at Grateful Dead concerts, Baur’s original VW Westphalia van will be serving vegan hot dogs at the 30th Gala.



“We’re excited to gather fellow advocates and supporters under one roof to celebrate Farm Sanctuary’s accomplishments over the past 30 years. We’re using this special occasion to applaud how far we’ve come, but also to continue our mission of revealing the truth behind factory farming practices, saving animals from abusive conditions, and changing how society views and treats farm animals. With tireless advocates and co-chairs, Tracey Stewart and Emily Deschanel, we are looking forward to raising awareness and further advancing our cause in Los Angeles, country-wide and beyond,” said President and Co-Founder Gene Baur.

JON STEWART PARTNERING WITH FARM SANCTUARY

Jon Stewart



Jon and Tracey Stewart announced that they are partnering with Farm Sanctuary, America’s leading farm animal protection organization, to open the organization’s fourth location at their New Jersey farm. The surprise announcement was made at Farm Sanctuary’s 2015 Gala at the Plaza Hotel in New York City during the couple’s acceptance speech for the Gift of Life Award, which was presented to them for their efforts to promote compassion for farm animals. The glamorous, all-vegan fĂȘte was also attended by Jesse Eisenberg, Bellamy Young, Emily Deschanel, Loretta Swit, and Senator Cory Booker.



With her husband Jon by her side, Tracey tearfully announced, “We’re getting married! Farm Sanctuary and us, we’re getting married,” to loud cheers from the crowd of over 500 attendees. “We bought a farm in New Jersey with the intention of starting a farm sanctuary of our own with an educational center, but what I’m announcing tonight is that our farm is actually going to be the New Jersey branch of Farm Sanctuary. We’re going to build new advocates, new curious learners, and new leaders for this very important movement.”



Before dropping the bombshell announcement, Tracey, who is also joining the organization’s Board of Directors, told the crowd “I pinch myself every time I get a text message from [Farm Sanctuary National Shelter Director] Susie Coston or [Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder] Gene Baur. I really can’t believe I’ve been welcomed into their family like I have. I feel like what Farm Sanctuary does is they do rescue and sanctuary for animals, and then without realizing it, they also do rescue and sanctuary for people. And I feel as though they’ve rescued me and they’ve given me sanctuary for the rest of my life.”



Tracey was inspired to pursue her longtime passion for animal protection, and ultimately open the New Jersey branch of Farm Sanctuary, after reading Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder Gene Baur’s 2008 book Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food. Her new book Do Unto Animals features rescue stories from Farm Sanctuary, and she has been apprenticing under the organization’s National Shelter Director Susie Coston since first attending the organization’s annual Farm Animal Care Conference last September.



An opening date for the New Jersey Farm Sanctuary has yet to be announced, but the public is invited to follow its progress by liking The Daily Squeal on Facebook for daily updates through the eyes of the Stewarts’ first sanctuary residents, two piglets named Anna and Maybelle Stewart.

Farm Sanctuary operates three shelters in New York and California that provide lifelong care for nearly 1,000 rescued farm animals, works to change laws to decrease abuse of farm animals, and promotes compassionate vegan living.

MARTHA STEWART STANDS UP FOR NEW JERSEY PIGS

Martha Stewart



NEW JERSEY -- Martha Stewart is the latest celebrity to stand up for New Jersey’s pigs. In a letter  delivered yesterday to the office of Governor Chris Christie, Stewart urges the governor to sign a bipartisan state animal welfare bill that will ban keeping mother pigs in crates so small they can’t even turn around.



Stewart’s letter comes on the heels of fellow New Jersey native Bill Maher’s op-ed in the New York Times, in which he accused the governor, who’s mulling a 2016 presidential campaign, of pandering to voters in Iowa, which holds the nation’s first presidential caucus.



“There must be more to it,” Maher wrote, referring to Christie’s veto of a similar bill last year. “Could it be that a possible presidential candidate is aware that Iowa is the No. 1 pig state in the country, and that Republican primary voters there are strongly anti-regulation?”



In her letter, Stewart writes, “All animals need to turn around; they were designed that way. But pigs, especially, are interesting individuals with unique personalities and complex behavior and cognition. It is no more acceptable to cram pigs into tiny crates than it would be to do the same thing to dogs.”

ALICIA SILVERSTONE AND 'FARM SANCTUARY'

Actress helps compassion stretch coast to coast as spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s Compassionate Communities Campaign

Alicia Silverstone



As a spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s new Compassionate Communities Campaign, Alicia Silverstone has a simple goal: to help as many people as possible get active for animals.



“When people think about helping animals, they generally think about dogs and cats, but chickens, pigs, and other farm animals need our help even more. And science shows that farm animals are just as intelligent and interesting as our pets,” says Alicia Silverstone, whose best-selling book “The Kind Diet” shows just how easy and delicious vegetarian eating can be. “Vegetarian advocacy allows busy people like you and me to spare the lives of thousands of animals every year without a huge time commitment. For example, you can spare at least fifty animals a lifetime of misery on a factory farm with just an hour of leafleting. And there are lots more tips at CompassionateCommunities.org.”
