On September 9, 2018, compassionate guests joined Farm Sanctuary for a one-of-a-kind Pignic surrounded by rescued farm animals! The event featured a festive plant-based picnic, activities, face-painting, and an unforgettable opportunity to connect with farm animals who are now free to live out their days in peace at Farm Sanctuary’s Southern California Shelter in Acton, CA.
