November 9, 2018 – Indraloka Animal Sanctuary, a local livestock and animal shelter, recently awarded VREC with a Community Partner Award. Indraloka is actively involved in the welfare and care animals and provides “heaven on earth” for farm animals that have nowhere else to turn.
Community support has always been important to VREC and the has worked with Indraloka on several occasions, most notably as a drop-off location for their “Pumpkins for Pigs” promotion the past two autumns. Those with unwanted pumpkins can drop them off at VREC and the Sanctuary presents them to the livestock for a healthy snack. VREC also is a sponsor of Indraloka’s annual “ThanksLiving” event that reverses the roles of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner; guests feast on vegan foods and have the opportunity feed the animals.
