Advocates for Animals
“Every person and every living creature,” Leo Tolstoy wrote, “has a sacred right to the ‘gladness of springtime.” Chapter 4, Farm Sanctuary
“More times than I can say, I have asked myself how we as a society could collectively fail to provide the vast majority of animals under our care with even the most basic humane protection.”
Chapter 12, Farm Sanctuary
Common Senior Experience
All seniors will read and analyze themes from Farm Sanctuary, by Gene Baur. Olympian High School pledges to engage students in curriculum and activities designed to build life-long awareness regarding the issue of animal cruelty prevention, specifically the exploitation and abuse of domestic, farm, and wild animals.
Goals: To raise funds and awareness for Farm Sanctuary.org, a non-profit organization that protects farm animals from cruelty, and inspires change in the way society views and treats farm animals. Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about the exploitation of farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization. Farm Sanctuary is committed to ending cruelty to farm animals through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts.
