Home on the Range is a Forthcoming CD to Benefit Farm Animal Sanctuaries featuring a growing list of amazing artists. The CD currently includes tracks by Moby, Howard Jones, Matisyahu, The Dead Stars on Hollywood, Nellie McKay, Princess Superstar, The Giving Tree Band, Kim Drake, Dropa, Joy Askew and Early Melodic Animals, with exclusive songs by members of Buzzcocks, Crass, U.K. Subs and Spiritualized.
Currently in the works and due for a September release, Home on the Range is a CD compilation presented by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Compassionate Farming Education Initiative (CFEI) to benefit farm animal sanctuaries, which rescue and advocate for animals that have suffered abuse and neglect.
What makes the benefit unique is the fact that all the artists involved are either vegan or vegetarian and accompanying the CD is Compassion 101, CFEI’s resource and lifestyle guide and features eco-friendly packaging.
Farm animal sanctuaries throughout the United States rescue and protect animals who have made it out of the food system, sometimes by their own fight for survival and sometimes by virtue of a sympathetic human (or organization) who rescues them. At these sanctuaries the animals are treated with kindness and respect, given clean and spacious housing, tended to with proper medical attention, and fed a healthy diet so that they may live out the rest of their lives in peace. Sanctuaries that the CD will benefit include: Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, Catskill Animal Sanctuary, Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary, Kindred Spirits Sanctuary, and Animal Acres.
Home on the Range is bringing artists together to support the work of several non-profit sanctuaries directly responsible for saving the lives of farm animals. More artists to be announced soon.
