ARC (Awakening Respect and Compassion for all Sentient Beings) 
PEACEFUL PRAYER VIGIL AND DEMONSTRATION FOR RODEO ANIMALS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 5TH, 2016, 5:30-8:30 PM, FOLEY HORSE ARENA


(Foley, AL) On Friday, August 5th from 5:30-8:30 pm, the local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization “ARC” (Awakening Respect and Compassion for All Beings) will hold a peaceful prayer vigil and demonstration in front of the Foley Horse Arena to bring awareness to the suffering of rodeo animals.  For more information, please visit the facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/150309232042996/

 

Animals used in rodeos often experience injuries including broken bones, snapped necks, and bruising. They are chased, whipped, roped, dragged to the ground and experience untold terror. This is not entertainment. It is abuse of vulnerable innocent beings. Please join ARC and the Panhandle Animal Rights group as we come together to peacefully speak up against cruelty and in defense of these abused animals.  

ARC LABOR DAY WEEKEND ROAD TRIP TO FULL CIRCLE FARM SANCTUARY
SEPT 2-4

ARC is taking a road trip! We are heading up to Warm Springs, GA to volunteer at Full Circle Farm Sanctuary. We'll be helping the sanctuary with some projects including painting, and cleaning out one of the buildings on the property. Plus of course we'll have lots of time to get to meet and hang out with the sanctuariy's non human residents including Sylvia, the pregnant cow we helped rescue a couple weeks ago. 

The sanctuary has a great big room we can all stay in at no charge and kitchen facilities so we can cook meals. There are also two private rooms which are part of the B&B and it would be good if whoever stayed in those rooms could make a donation to the sanctuary for their use. Please private message us if you'd like to reserve those rooms, which will be available first come first serve. The sanctuary is also located right next to FDR national park, which rents out cabins if you'd prefer to stay there, and you can also pitch a tent on the sanctuary's property if you like. If you're staying in the house, you'll need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow, towel, and (vegan) food. ARC will be providing dinner for everyone Friday and Saturday nights, but you'll want to bring whatever you will want for breakfast and lunch those days.

We'll be carpooling and caravaning up on Friday morning, leaving Mobile at 9:00 am from Plantation Antique Galleries and returning Sunday morning. People are also welcome to drive up earlier or stay through Labor Day.
