The Shimmy Shack 2017 Michigan’s Sexiest Vegan’s Calendar is getting well-deserved attention from the Observer and Eccentric Media’s Hometown Lifesite.Writer, Sharon Dargay, interviewed Shimmy Shack’s owner, Debra Levantrosser, to discuss her reasons for creating the calendar and her charitable donations from the profits.
Fifty percent of the profits from the 2017 calendar will be donated to SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary and the calendar was filmed on our grounds.
“SASHA Farm’s values match our values. We believe animals have personalities and deserve love. To us, eating a pig is the equivalent of eating a dog. If people got to know pigs, they’d see pigs have personalities, just like dogs, and the same with cows,” Levantrosser said. “We like what SASHA Farm does and how they do it.”
Thank you Debra! We agree!

We truly have wonderful volunteers and supporters. Erin Miranda Patiño, a volunteer at our sanctuary, dedicated several months of work toward the creation of the one and only SASHA Farm: A Coloring Book of Rescued Farm Animals! Her work and dedication to our sanctuary is inspiring.
Besides driving two hours each way to work at the farm every week, Erin took time away from her evenings to create this coloring book on our behalf. We don’t know how she managed to do it all and work a full-time job too, but we can’t thank her enough.
We have another video showing some highlights of our Humane Fair on August 14, 2016. This video was filmed and donated by Brian Fisher. If you didn’t get a chance to visit us during this event, please watch the video and make plans to visit us when our on-site events begin again in 2017.
We hope you made it out to our Humane Fair on August 14, 2016. If not, have you wondered what we do? To answer some of your questions, check out this video generously recorded and donated by David Brown.
Hundreds of people came to the sanctuary to meet the animal residents, connect with local animal advocacy groups, and eat a delicious catered lunch during our 2016 Humane Fair. David recorded some highlights.
We hope you enjoy the video and consider visiting the sanctuary when our onsite events begin again in 2017. We rely on your support to continue our mission of caring for abused, neglected, and mistreated farm animals.
