Pumpkin Day

Thursday, November 1, 2018


Pigs love pumpkins and any kind of squash or gourds. Every year after Halloween we receive lots of leftover pumpkins from pumpkin patches and from individuals. Bring your jack-o-lanterns sans the candles and help us feed pumpkins to the pigs.

Fiesta Dia De Los Muertos Party

Saturday, November 3, 2018

6:00pm to 11:00pm

Dia de los Muertos actually falls on Friday, November 2nd, but we’re continuing the celebration through Saturday. Bring photos of a departed loved one or two and help create an ofrenda or alter to place the pictures amidst candle and flowers. We’ll have traditional foods (veganized) and drinks, music and a bonfire. Musically inclined? Bring your guitar! Buses will be transporting folks from Austin and back if you don’t want to drive. More details to come.

Vegan Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 22, 2018

2:00pm to 6:00pm

Spend a gentler, kinder day among the animals. Bring a vegan dish to share and come early if you want to volunteer. Over 45 million turkeys will cruelly be killed for this holiday. Turkeys are gentle, intelligent animals.


Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Entering its seventh year, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated every Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season and of end-of-year giving. Our goal is to raise $15K.

New Cattery


The new cattery is complete. We plan on celebrating the occasion as part of our Dia de los Muertos event. Special thanks to our generous donors who contributed to the new multi-purpose building and to Emser Natural Stone and Tile for donating all the beautiful ceramic tile and supplies for the floor.
