Below, you will read about two of the 250 SASHA Farm animal residents who could all use your help as we prepare for the winter ahead.

This is Jefferson, a Polled brown and white Hereford steer.  He was raised about 10 miles south of Manchester, MI, and sold at an auction just north of Manchester in 2003. But it appeared that this noble beauty couldn’t bear the thought of being someone’s dinner, so he escaped the Eastern Market slaughterhouse in Detroit where he had a “date with death.”  He ran for his life across several busy Detroit streets, before being captured and tranquilized on Jefferson Ave, hence his name. Miraculously,  many compassionate people helped Jefferson find his lifetime home at SASHA Farm, where he will now spend the rest of his life surrounded by other cows, pigs, horses, chickens, sheep, goats and adoring humans.

Meet Frankie. When he was rescued from a Calhoun County (MI) hoarding case in 2015 (with Flopsy, Mazzy, and other goats and sheep), he had been living in a dog crate, and could barely walk when his rescuers opened the door of his crate to give him his freedom. Now, no one can keep him from running with joy in the pasture!  Frankie loves his life at SASHA Farm, and he loves all the humans who love him back!


You will enjoy dynamic views of the Detroit and Windsor skylines during a 3 hour late summer afternoon cruise on the Diamond Belle River Boat. Your cruise will be complete with a cash bar,  hot vegan hors d’oeuvres, appetizers and desserts prepared by The Moveable Feast. Sean Blackman and his band will be playing music during the cruise.

Date is Saturday September 15, 2018 from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Ticket price is $100.00 per person. Dock and parking is at the foot of Joseph Campau – address is 201 Joseph Campau. Parking is available for $5.00 (not included in the ticket price).


Don’t miss this wonderful experience while helping the SASHA animal residents at the same time!
