Subject: NJ Farm Animal Save to hold vigil at Catelli Bros. slaughterhouse
To: "thevssj@..." <thevssj@...>On Saturday, March 29, NJ Farm Animal Save will host their first ever slaughterhouse vigil in New Jersey at Catelli Bros., located at 776 Broad St., Shrewsbury. The event will take place from 12:00 pm– 2:00 pm directly outside the facility. The slaughterhouse was shuttered by the government in January of 2014, after a shocking video exposed the facilities’ cruel and inhumane treatment of calves. As of early February, the facility was reopened pending promises of the Catelli company to reform their practices.NJ Farm Animal Save believes that members of our community need to be kept aware of the ongoing plight of animals subjected to cruelty right here in our own backyard. The mission of the vigil is simple, “We are there to notice. We are there to record. We are there to show solidarity.” This event will be comprised of and represent members of the local community.This is the first event ever hosted by NJ Farm Animal Save, empowering locals to assert their rights as observers and objectors to the inhumane treatment of animals. To make this event a success, NJ Farm Animal Save needs your help. At present, we are contacting members of local press organizations to establish press coverage for this event. The goal is to bring increased awareness, and we hope to draw a large crowd to show solidarity among supporters of animal welfare in our community.Here’s where we need your help.
