Merge Restaurant to Host Farm Sanctuary Fundraiser: Join the Farmy!

The above is a video of Gloria. Gloria was rescued by Farm Sanctuary, and was a victim of severe neglect. For the first 8 years of her life she lived at a racetrack to calm the horses. She was tied to a wall, with no room to walk, roam, or really move at all, and she had no contact with any animals, other than being able to see them move about, as she remained tied. Gloria didn't know how to be a goat, she had never been allowed to prior to coming home to Farm Sanctuary, and as you can see, she can certainly play now!
