Mercy For Animals

In September 2014, we raised $825.23 for Mercy For Animals, once of the nation’s leading farm animal advocacy organizations! MFA’s undercover investigations, corporate outreach programs, social media campaigns, and other creative forms of activism have contributed significantly to our society’s understanding and increasing rejection of factory farming conditions. They are repeatedly making headlines and appearing on national and local news networks to expose cruelty within the animal agriculture industry. To get a sense of their 2013 accomplishments, please check out this video:

In addition to their groundbreaking investigatory work, MFA also promotes cruelty-free eating through their website www.chooseveg.com. They provide an abundance of ideas and resources for compassionate consumers who want to make a progressive change in their diets.

I’ve long admired the heroes at MFA, so I’m thrilled to be able to contribute to their success!

Hello All! I apologize for how long it’s been since I updated this blog! I promise to be more on top of things in the future. Throughout the day, I’ll be sharing details from the projects we were able to support over the summer. Starting with May’s fundraiser for Animal Rescue Corps! You may recall that we donated to ARC back in 2013 after a brief holiday fundraiser, but I decided to help them out again (they are always in major need) now that The Tree Kisser shop has grown and is bringing in more donations.

When we launched this fundraiser, the ARC team had just completed Operation Delta Dogs, a rescue mission at a suspected dog fighting site in Mississippi. They were able to remove 12 abused and neglected dogs from the property. Because most of these dogs experience horrific cruelty at the hands of their criminal captors, it takes a lot of time, effort, and resources to rehabilitate them. I’m so grateful that we were able to send $1,143.23 to support their heroic efforts!

I’ve shared a few photos from this rescue mission below, but I encourage you to view the full Operation Delta Dogs album here!
