Farm Sanctuary Celebrates New Third Location

The non-profit farm-animal sanctuary celebrates the opening of its new location in Southern California.

Farm Sanctuary, with locations in Orland, CA and Watkins Glen, NY, recently acquired Animal Acres, a 26-acre shelter in Acton, CA that houses more than 100 rescued farm animals. To celebrate its new presence in Southern California, the nonprofit is hosting a party on June 16 at the Los Angeles home of HBO executive James Costos and designer Michael Smith, complete with cocktails, vegan hors d’oeuvres, and music. Farm Sanctuary supporters such as Emily Deschanel, Kevin Nealon, and Kristin Bauer van Straten will be attending, as well as FS’ Co-founder and President Gene Baur. In addition to the new location, FS recently opened The Melrose Small Animal Hospital to handle emergency medical veterinary needs for its Watkins Glen farm animals.
