Yes! You read that right!!
The Vegans and Vegetarians of Alberta are excited to be having their first Group Volunteer event of 2017 at Farm Animal Rescue & Rehoming Movement - FARRM! The 3 we hosted back in 2016 were amazing and many people have been requesting to go back!


IMPORTANT:
Please read their rules and Code of Conduct here:

Once you RSVP to this on here I will message you the directions (the address doesn't work on Google Maps). FARRM is located not too far outside of Wetaskawin. It is a private residence so we ask you to be respectful and not to share the directions online. Please email moniquevvoa@outlook.com to get the directions if that works better for you.

It is recommended to carpool as there is only so much space in their driveway for vehicles. Simply comment below on this event that you would like to carpool- whether you can pick people up, or if you need a ride.

Please bring a monetary donation for FARRM or these items are always needed: Blankets, Beds, Fresh Produce. FARRM currently has over 50 animals in their care so whatever you can afford to give is extremely appreciated!

Also bring: a t-shirt, long sleeve shirt (in case you are moving wood or hay etc) and a jacket if it is chilly, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, water, a vegan or vegetarian lunch and rubber boots if you wish to go in the pig pen. Please note that the people whom run FARRM are vegan themselves and encourage others to follow a vegan lifestyle. No meat is allowed on the premises. You do not have to be vegan or vegetarian to want to volunteer, but it is asked to not bring meat. Thank you for your consideration!

What do the owners of FARRM do? Mostly this not-for-profit organization is run by a wonderful woman named Melissa. Over the years she has accumulated other wonderful humans to volunteer their time to help her operate FARRM. FARRM brings in animals that have been neglected or no longer wanted, that are sick or up for slaughter. She feeds them, gets their health looked after by vets and then looks for forever homes for the animals- all so she can bring in more animals to repeat this process all over again! As you can understand, this requires a LOT of work, money and dedication! Let's team together and take a bit of the stress off of her- both the physical labour and help with some financial aspects!

Please share this event with your friends and family!
