Wagner Farm Rescue Fund
A Meat and Dairy Industries Article from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves. As we continue to disregard the value of the lives of the billions of animals we eat, we also are destroying our air, land and water.

About Wagner Farm Rescue Fund

W.F.R.F. was founded from a need to establish a humane alternative to slaughter for the farm animals of the Glenview (IL) Park Districtís Wagner Farm when these animals are no longer wanted at Wagner Farm.

Due to a series of events, the course of development that the Park District is taking for Wagner Farm is contrary to many of the plans that were originally established between the park district and local citizens who assisted the park district by enabling them to purchase Wagner Farm through a taxpayer supported referendum in 1998.

New plans by the park district included the selling of unwanted Wagner Farm animals for slaughter, ultimately including the implementation of 4H programming in which their project animals are sold yearly to slaughter auction despite humane placement and financial compensation offered by W.F.R.F.

The Park District is now promoting the scandal-ridden slaughterhouse and agribusiness industry. In order to provide humane alternatives, W.F.R.F. strives to purchase these animals, arrange transport for them, and contribute to their life-long care at animal rescue sanctuaries.
