City Girls Gone…Where?

July 17, 2010

Earlier this year, Kara Mergl and Angela Di Toro of New York City found a small organization dedicated to the rescue, safety, and humane care of farm animals; Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS).  The staff at WFAS works tirelessly to ensure the well-being of farm animals that have been abused, abandoned, or taken in by individuals who simply did not provide the proper environment for a farm animal.  While some of the animals have been rescued from slaughterhouses, a surprising number come right from the streets of New York City.  Without WFAS, these animals would have succumbed to certain death, and now we want to help them stand strong!                    

Over the next several months, join these two girls from NYC by following their blog and watch as they learn more about WFAS, farm animal rescue, and – you guessed it – mucking stalls.          

You think we can't hack it?*


It costs a hefty $1200 a day to run WFAS.  The cost includes: operation of the farm, administering care for and feeding the animals, and, in large part, covering medical expenses for all ill and injured animals brought to the farm.                   

This is where you come in!   

For every $150 raised through this website over the next three months, you will send these girls from NYC to work for ONE hour on the farm.  So, help support a GREAT cause, and see these ladies go from stilettos to stalls!


See the DONATE page for a secure location where you can give money and put these girls to work!

    You gals ROCK! It is so wonderful that you are helping give people the 411 and drop some truth on everyone, about the horrific ways animals are treated and how we can all live more compassionately, get involved, and help them!! Helping them helps us. I hope your efforts become a real fun adventure… that you make a lot of friends (both human and in many a critter form) along the way. We appreciate this so much!
