Animal Rock 2022 Was a Howl!

The money raised through the ANIMAL ROCK Event Raffle was donated to PeTA’s “Stop Animal Testing” Challenge. PeTA surpassed their goal, unlocking a $500,000 match. The more than $1 Million raised will go towards modernizing research and ending the suffering of dogs, cats, mice, monkeys & other animals who are tormented in archaic experiments.  

Together we can create a world where nonhuman animals are treated with respect, love & compassion!

We had a Beautiful Day Celebrating our Relationships with Animals at ANIMAL ROCK! It was a Multi-Species Event. Humans, Dogs, Cats, and even Monarch Butterflies and Whales joined the festivities!
