Join us for our annual Spring Fling Celebration!  Sunday June 6, 2021 from 1-3.

Spring Fling is coming and little Regan, well, now big Regan is so excited. It’s hard to believe that it will be a year July 4th when little Regan came into our lives. Please come help her celebrate her first birthday!
 
Spring Fling is an annual celebration here at Sunrise Sanctuary and one of our largest fundraisers of the year. All funds raised go directly toward caring for the precious souls that call Sunrise home. You can come to meet our furry and feathered family and mingle with like-minded animal lovers. There will be yummy vegan food included in the ticket price.  This year, we are honored to have the amazing and talented Kevin Ridenbaugh from Seitan’s Realm be our chef for the day.  Kevin is generously donating his food and skills and serving up his award winning burger patties.  There will be a  huge bake sale of delicious vegan baked goods, Sunrise merchandise for sale, and plenty of time with the animals.
 
Tickets are mandatory and will go fast! Click on the link below to secure your spot. Tickets are: $15 for adults 18+, $10 for youth 4-17, and children 3 and under are free.

For those of you who do not know Regan’s story… Regan came to us after living her entire young life on a factory farm. Two wonderful people rescued her from a very horrible fate. Regan was born solely to end up on somebody’s plate. She was brought into existence for one purpose, to be killed. Her soul had no meaning to those who brought her into this world, she was just profit. However, Regan is a beautiful, inquisitive, vocal and unique little girl. She loves the grass and fresh air and loves to run and jump. She also loves splashing around in her own little Regan-size piggy pool. She now knows nothing but love and care. Even after everything she’s been through, she’s such a trusting piggy. We will love her and cherish her every moment. She is safe and she is home.
Regan is also special in another way. As many know, a tragic event recently shook the activist world. On June 19th, 2020 long-time animal rights activist Regan Russell with Toronto Pig Save was hit and killed by a transport truck, while giving pigs headed to slaughter fresh water. The rescuers saved little Regan in Regan Russell’s name and we are honored to take part. Regan was an amazing person who dedicated her entire life to bettering this world and giving a voice to those whose voices are not heard. She spent her final hours comforting scared pigs who were about to walk into a horrible nightmare. We will never forget Regan Russell and everything she fought so hard for, justice. Regan’s memory and fight will never be forgotten. We will never forget how someone who could be so caring and so inherently good could be killed in such a horrible way. We gave little Regan sanctuary, in her honor.
 
A special thank you to the amazing vegan bakers who are donating their baked goods to our event:
Thank you!!

2020 Events

It was a trying year for everyone here at Sunrise, as we know it was for many of you.  We were able to hold some of our Open Barn Days, but had to cancel our two largest events, Spring Fling and Thanksgiving FOR the Turkeys.  We are happy to report everyone at the farm is well and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back in the spring.  Our 2021 Event and Open Barn Day Schedule will be posted in January.  Please check back for dates and more information.

Thanksgiving FOR The Turkeys – Sunday November 22, 2020 from 1-3

Due to COVID 19 and an order from the State of Ohio, we have cancelled this event.  We are devastated to have to cancel, but want to comply with the letter and sprit of the law and most importantly want to make sure you and our many volunteers that would have had to be on hand for the event are safe.  If you pre-ordered a meal, Seitan’s Realm is refunding the cost directly to you.  We will refund your admission price paid upon request. If you were registered, an email was send directly to you with instructions.  Thank you for your support and we hope to be able to open the farm up to our Open Barn Days in the Spring.  If you have any questions, please email us directly, sandy@sunrisesanctuary.org.

Our Thanksgiving FOR the Turkeys Event is our largest fundraiser of the year. Every year, we save turkeys from being on a plate and allow them to live the rest of their natural lives in peace and love here at the Sanctuary.  This year’s rescues have not arrived yet, but will be here by the event and you can help welcome them home!  In addition to celebrating these magnificent beings, this event helps us to raise money to pay our feed bill for the winter. Every year, we are thrilled to welcome old friends back and new ones to the family.

There will be yummy vegan food available for purchase.  We are excited to welcome back Village Taco and Seitan’s Realm and to welcome Where It All Vegan who will be collaborating together to prepare one fantastic vegan Thanksgiving lunch!  There will be a link to pre-order food on our Facebook page soon.  Also at the event, you will be able to support three amazing bakeries all will have delicious deserts available for sale, Doughasis108 Delectable Delights and Moonflower Bakery.  So much vegan yummy goodness all in one spot!  There will also be a silent auction and plenty of time to meet and love on the Sunrise animal family!  Our current silent auction donors are listed below. Please support them as a way of thanking them for supporting us!  Also, please check our Facebook event page as donors will be added up to the event.

We charge admission to this event to raise money for the Sanctuary, but, instead of a fixed amount, we are letting you choose the admission price that is right for you by buying a virtual item of food or a supply the animals need and you will have the option to make an additional donation either online or at the event. One ticket is required per person, they are non-refundable, but may be transferred to another Sanctuary event. This event always sells out quickly, so please get your tickets early!  Thank you so much for your support and we hope to see you on November 22nd!

***As of 11/9/2020 this event is sold out.  Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to seeing everyone on 11/22.***
