Providence Walk for Farm Animals September 28, 2013 at Johnston Memorial Park

For more than 25 years, Farm Sanctuary has relied on the Walk for Farm Animals to support its life-saving mission to protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and promote compassion. 

First Parish Bridgewater's Animal Ministry is walking with Farm Sanctuary to give animals a voice and to challenge the cruel practices of the factory farming industry. Please support our participation in the Walk for Farm Animals by making a donation today!
