Walk for Farm Animals 

New Orleans animal rights activists will take to the streets Saturday, Oct. 2, for an annual Walk for Farm Animals. More than 70 cities are participating in the nationwide event organized by Farm Sanctuary, making this year's walk the largest in the organization's 25-year history. Founded in 1986, Farm Sanctuary provides several sanctuaries for and houses neglected or abused farm animals. In 2005, the organization rescued hundreds of malnourished or dehydrated chickens from abandoned poultry farms following Hurricane Katrina. The organization also conducts education outreach and promotes a vegan lifestyle. The New Orleans event begins at 10 a.m. at Hey! Cafe (4332 Magazine St.). Visit for more information, or visit to register to walk.
