Thanksgiving For Animals

Come celebrate Thanksgiving for Animals! Join us on Sunday, November 26 from 11am-2pm at SASHA Farm, where we’ll be honoring turkeys who represent everything there is to be thankful for—love, peace, and compassion! We’ll be remembering all the individual turkeys who lost their lives this year by serving our own special turkey gals a pumpkin pie memorial feast! This is a great chance to get a private tour of the farm, meet the animals and like-minded people, and support the sanctuary.

Serving free coffee and cider! There will also be a vegan bake sale where you’ll be able to buy delicious vegan donuts, pie, and other treats to go with your coffee or cider. Also for sale will be SASHA Farm merchandise. We request that you bring cash or checks instead of credit cards if you can.

Minimum donation $20 for adults, $10 for kids, free for 5 and under. Proceeds will be used for winter expenses and veterinary bills.

You can also check out this event on our facebook page, here. Feel free to contact us for more information at info@sashafarm.org. We hope to see you this Sunday! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

And The Winner Is . . .

. . The SASHA Farm Turkeys!

Thank you to everyone who sponsored one of our turkeys for Thanksgiving.  It is truly heartwarming to see how many people care and want to contribute to their well-being.  A special thanks to our drawing winner, Stephanie Church, who donated her winnings to the sanctuary.

This season we are truly thankful for all our generous friends who help keep SASHA going.  You give us so much hope for the future.

Have a very happy and compassionate Thanksgiving.

All Because of You!

SASHA Farm‘s annual benefit and auction is our largest fundraiser each year. The funds raised at this event allow us to continue providing food, shelter, and medical care to animals who rarely received these necessities until they became SASHA Farm residents.

Each year, our banquet attendees and those who donate to the auction really make this fundraiser a success for the SASHA animal residents, and this year’s October 14th benefit was no exception.  In addition, on October 28, 2017, we celebrated 16 years of rescuing animals and providing animal welfare education as a nonprofit.  A big “THANK YOU!” goes to ALL who support SASHA Farm and its residents. We couldn’t do this without YOU!

Please help us thank our 2017 auction donors by recognizing their contributions, and help support them with your patronage.

A Very Special Day at SASHA Farm!

Thank you to all who came to SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary on Sunday, October 22 to spend time with the Jersey 5 and all the other residents. First, we met the babies in the small pasture area outside their living quarters, and all our visitors had a delightful time cuddling the sweet babies. But when we opened the gate and they ran free in the larger pasture adjoining FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME IN THEIR LIVES, it was a wondrous sight to behold – and a very special day for all who witnessed the Jersey 5 running and jumping with joy! Check out this movie on our Facebook page by clicking HERE.

We appreciate your support, and the money raised will go toward helping the Jersey 5 receive ongoing medical care. If you have pictures and videos of the event that you would like to share with us and all our supporters, please email them to socialmedia@sashafarm.org. For larger files, please send an email to socialmedia@sashafarm.org and we will be happy to provide alternate information.

BHIMA’S BLOG: Why I’m filled with woe.

Bhima’s Blog:
“Oh no! There is very little time left for you to buy tickets to the SASHA Farm Fundraising Banquet! That money will help feed me. I’m a big ox so I eat a lot. The volunteers make me share food with the other 200 animals here though.

You may have heard that I like being the center of attention and I get pushy and throw tantrums if I don’t get the attention I deserve. It’s true. I do it because I’m a wonder to behold and others should know of my magnificence.

There are 5 baby cows here who are getting a lot of MY attention. I met them. They are rather needy in a baby sort of way. They are always mooing for their bottles and the volunteers rush to soothe them and feed them. I’ve heard the volunteers call me jealous, a diva, and a drama king. I don’t know those words, but I think they mean the same thing as magnificent so I forgive them when they have to leave me to care for the other animals. 

Please buy your tickets now and donate items to the auction! I fear that these babies and the other 200 animals will eat all my food and nothing will be left for me.  

I will leave you now and spend the rest of my day filled with woe (except when I’m being fed or being pet).”
