Slideshow: 2021 Fourth of July Vegan Potluck

Thanks to everyone who took part in the CAA 4th of July Vegan Potluck Picnic at North Mississippi Regional Park in Minneapolis. Approximately 50 guests attended this fun event and many brought fabulous vegan dishes for all to enjoy.

Why visit a farm sanctuary?

An in-person tour of a farm sanctuary can be a fun way to have personal encounters with animals otherwise farmed for food. These up-close experiences can tap into our compassion and help us understand our shared sentience. Tours also provide insight into the dedication, ingenuity and resources it takes to ensure farmed animals enjoy a full and peaceful existence.

Compassionate Action for Animals (CAA) coordinates with local farm sanctuaries within driving distance of the Twin Cities to offer tours.
