Catskill Animal Sanctuary’s 12th Annual Shindig: A Festival Of Vegan Living

On October 5, the Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS) will host its 12th Annual Shindig: A Festival of Vegan Living. The goal is not only to raise funds for the continued rescue, rehabilitation and care of as many farm animals as possible, but to educate attendees about the values of the vegan lifestyle.
