Animal Law AssociationA group of 10 UF Law students from the Animal Law Association spent their afternoon on Sept. 13 volunteering with Kindred Spirits Sanctuary in Ocala, Fla. Kindred Spirits is a non-profit organization that offers a 36-acre haven for animals rescued from the abuses of factory farming. The students helped with daily farm chores such as cleaning stalls and feeding, and spent quality time with more than 100 rescued animals, including horses, pigs, goats, cows, mules and a turkey. The sanctuary welcomes guests, who can get a close and personal look at the rescued farm animals. The animals love the attention and kindness guests bring, trotting up to visitors to be petted and get treats. ALA aims to educate the public about animal abuse and how litigation and other legal means can protect the lives of animals. The group is planning another outing to the sanctuary for the spring semester. For more information contact Charles King at animallawassociation@gmail.com.
