SASHA Farm Benefit Cruise: Saturday, September 15

This benefit cruise may very well be the highlight of your fall season!  This unique and unforgettable experience on the Diamond Belle River Boat will take us for a leisurely cruise down the Detroit River. We’ll enjoy dynamic views of the Detroit and Windsor skylines,  watching the sun slowly set over the water, all to the sounds of Sean Blackman’s music. Also included in your ticket price are scrumptious vegan hors d’oeuvres and desserts courtesy of The Moveable Feast. A cash bar will also be available.

This 3 hour cruise begins at 6pm and ends at 9pm.  Please note that boarding starts at 5:45 and the boat departs promptly at 6pm!  The dock is located at 201 Joseph Campau Avenue, Detroit, MI. 48207.

What better way to spend a Saturday night?   And best of all, you’ll be helping the SASHA animal residents like our most recent arrival, “Little Lamb”,  whose story is below.

Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased HERE.  Sponsorships for this event are available and can be purchased HERE.

Questions? Contact Bob Harvie at bob@sashafarm.org

We are looking forward to spending a very special evening with you on September 15. Please BUY  YOUR TICKETS HERE!

Remember, that every ticket purchased will help “Little Lamb” and all the other animal residents who call SASHA Farm their home. Read “Little Lamb’s” story below:

The Story of “Little Lamb”:  A very tiny lamb was born in May of 2018 on a very large sheep farm. She was rejected by her mother, most likely because of her size, and left to die.  A young girl named Bri heard of her plight, and rescued her while she was only a few days old. Bri bottle fed her new little friend, while also playing with her and comforting her. Bri’s nurturing worked, and the little lamb grew, soon becoming too big to live inside. Having visited SASHA Farm, Bri knew exactly where she wanted the lamb to spend the rest of her days. While it was a tearful goodbye, SASHA welcomed the lamb with open arms. Bri returned home, certain in the knowledge that her friend had found a safe and loving forever home and knowing she could visit the lamb often.

We are very grateful for all that Bri has done. With over 2 million sheep slaughtered in the US yearly (the majority of them being lambs) her quick and compassionate actions saved this baby from an unthinkable future.  Because of the actions of one young girl, Little Lamb is forever safe.

Please join us on this cruise and you will be helping “Little Lamb” as well as all of  the SASHA Farm animal residents. Thank you for helping us save so many lives!!

SASHA Farm Humane Fair 2018 – A Great Success Thanks to YOU!

Although the wind blew some gusts our way every once in a while, and a little rain came down here and there, it was a beautiful day for all our SASHA Farm visitors and supporters who came out to the Humane Fair on July 22.

You met representatives from other animal advocacy organizations (see list below). You saw a presentation by Brece Clark, the Humane Cowboy, met Anonymous for the Voiceless, and talked to the SASHA Farm founders, Dorothy Davies and Monty Jackson, in a very enjoyable and informative Q&A session. Your children enjoyed our new Children’s Corner and got to meet Wonder Woman. Many of you joined tours of the farm and you learned all about the 250 animal residents and how they came to live at SASHA Farm. You visited the animal areas and talked to dedicated volunteers who told you more about the pigs, goats, cows, horses, birds, sheep and all other animal species who live at SASHA Farm. You learned the names of many animals and now you know their stories. You met or re-acquainted yourself with Bhima, Daisy Belle, and the Jersey Five. You enjoyed a great vegan buffet lunch catered by The Moveable Feast.

It was truly a great day and we thank all of you, both first time visitors and long time supporters, as well as the animal advocacy organizations, and all the volunteers and staff of SASHA Farm, for a day that we will all remember. Most of all, you helped the animal residents. Without your help, we could not keep saving farm animals in need and promoting the plant-based diet. Thank you again for everything that you do for the animals and for spreading the word!

And, thanks to the following organizations for helping to make our Humane Fair a day to remember!

For example, get to know all of the 250 animal residents like Eve the potbellied pig (top picture) and Moo and Jefferson (immediately above), and make friends with the new animals who have recently joined us such as Molly and Elsa the pygmy goats, Rosie the donkey, and Debbie the mule.

This year there will be a special presentation delivered by the Humane Cowboy (SASHA’s Brece Clark!).  Brece is a former professional horse trainer and event rider, but has taken a platform against many horse training methods, and will speak about this and the ethics of riding horses at 1:00 pm. There will also be a demonstration by the local chapter of Anonymous for the Voiceless.
