4th Annual It’s a Wonderful Life After Labs!!

It’s here! Our 4th annual It’s a Wonderful Life After Labs winter soiree!!!

We are so excited to celebrate once again with all of our friends and supporters, old as well as new! And this promises to be the best one yet!! We are working with caterers on a magnificent vegan menu that will be absolutely mouthwatering! Decadent vegan desserts will be provided by Snopel’s Inspired Bakeshop!

There will be a fantastic silent and live auction, sanctuary tours, roaming carolers from Southwest Women’s Chorus, our famous pumpkin smashing party for the pigs and more! We will be honoring the incredible, groundbreaking work of The Budkie Family – founders of Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN), Jane Garrison, and Girl Scout Troop 3398!!!

The Budkies have advocated for animals in labs and other places of exploitation for over three decades and founded SAEN in 1996. Through SAEN, Michael, Karen, Elyse and their volunteers work exclusively on the animal experimentation issue by successfully terminating research projects, forcing the USDA to take legal action against laboratories, and coordinating release of animals into sanctuaries.

Jane Garrison is also a long time advocate, ran an international campaign for the protection of elephants and is a disaster rescue hero – coordinating search and rescue efforts for animals in the aftermaths of Hurricane Katrina and other floods, tornadoes, etc. She co-founded New Life Animal Sanctuary, providing the down payment for our property, and currently sits on our board.

Girl Scout Troop 3398 visited New Life in the spring and have since launched an impressive campaign called Change the Fate to raise awareness about animal research and product testing! The girls were quite touched meeting former lab victims here and learned about what happens in laboratories. They have educated soooooo many people through their presentations and social media presence, giving reviews of cruelty free products and encouraging all their friends and family to make the compassionate choice when buying cosmetics and other products commonly tested on animals! These young people are an AMAZING vision of the future and we are so proud to honor them and share their work with all of you!!
