Announcing the Creation of Peaceable Kingdom:
The Los Angeles Farm Animal Sanctuary
& Compassionate Living Center

Farmed animals, and their human friends, are celebrating the creation of Peaceable Kingdom: the Los Angeles Farm Animal Sanctuary & Compassionate Living Center. The Peaceable Kingdom Sanctuary is directed by Lorri (Bauston) Houston, who started the country's first shelter for farmed animals in 1986 as the Co-founder of Farm Sanctuary, Inc. Considered the "pioneer" of the farmed animal sanctuary movement, she has directly rescued and provided lifelong care for over 5,000 animals rescued from factory farms, stockyards and slaughterhouses.

The Peaceable Kingdom Sanctuary is located on a beautiful 26 acre farm just 40 minutes from Los Angeles. The sanctuary has two large animal housing barns and an education building adjacent to the barns, complete with a kitchen facility for special events, public rooms for meetings, video viewing and exhibits, and a beautiful public gathering courtyard.

Peaceable Kingdom will offer a variety of programs to encourage people to live in harmony and peace with all beings. As an Official Sponsor of the project, Native Foods (voted LA's #1 veg restaurant) is teaming up with the organization to create fun and delicious ways to promote vegetarianism. Humane education tours will provide a unique education destination for hundreds of thousands of students in the L.A. and surrounding school districts. Sanctuary special events will bring celebrity spokespersons and their farmed animal friends together to open hearts and minds to the cruelties of meat, dairy and egg production, and teach people that farmed animals are not breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The GRAND OPENING of the sanctuary is scheduled for September 17th. Peaceable Kingdom is in need of volunteers and sponsors to help create the new sanctuary. Volunteer "Farm Chore Days" will be held the first Saturday of each month beginning on May 7th. For more information on what you can do to help, visit:
