Welcome to The Goat Games 2023, a hybrid fundraiser and community event created and hosted by Catskill Animal Sanctuary to benefit farmed animal sanctuaries across the country! The Goat Games allows anyone from anywhere in the world to support our work to provide lifelong care to animals in need. Goat Games 2023 will inspire friendly competition among participating sanctuaries, raise critically-needed funds, and inspire those who believe that all animals deserve to live lives free from exploitation and suffering. Proceeds will support the life-saving mission of each participating animal sanctuary.
This year, between August 7 and August 13, Catskill Animal Sanctuary is partnering with 16 other sanctuaries from around the country--from Washington state, Maine, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and many other regions--in a six-day online competition to raise the most funds in support of their life-saving work. No matter where they place in the competition, each sanctuary will keep the funds donated in their name. Our collective goal is $250,000, and every dollar raised will go to saving lives and providing sanctuary. Supporters can donate in one of three ways: by giving outright to the sanctuary of their choice, by tapping friends and family to donate through DonorCharm's texting tool, or by raising money via Instagram or Facebook--exactly like the birthday fundraisers we contribute to! Are you game? Many participating sanctuaries are also hosting onsite Goat Games events, and that includes Catskill Animal Sanctuary! You can join Catskill Animal Sanctuary on Saturday, August 12 for live entertainment, family games, food trucks, craft vendors, and most importantly, time with the goats and others who call CAS home.
