On Saturday, March 3, the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund chapter at Lewis and Clark Law School held its Spring Work Retreat at Green Acres Farm Sanctuary in Silverton, Oregon. In addition to mucking stalls and hauling compost, members of SALDF had the opportunity to hang out with goats and meet Cupcake. Cupcake is Green Acres’ newest arrival and the sanctuary’s first pig. After being raised as a 4H project, Cupcake was headed to slaughter after being sold at the local fair. Instead, he was given a new lease on life when his former family changed their minds and bought him back from a livestock auction. Cupcake is only one of the dozens of farm animals with unique stories living at the sanctuary. L&C SALDF thanks Green Acres Farm Sanctuary for the opportunity to visit with these amazing animals and learn their stories!
