Freddaflower Memorial & Appreciation Fund

The pain of losing them is the price we pay for the privilege of knowing them and sharing their lives . . .

We thank those people who have contributed to our work with recent donations In Loving Memory and in Honor and Appreciation of the following beloved family members and friends:

Dear UPC, thank you for your support of Lou and Bill, the two affectionate companion oxen we tried to save at Green Mountain College in Vermont. – Audrey Haschemeyer

My donation is in memory of my dear friend Theodore Pickens and in memory of all the precious turkeys who die so that Americans can have a centerpiece on the Thanksgiving Table. Keep up your important work. – Salene Seymour

Dear Karen & UPC, We are sorry for your loss of Allan Cate. Wishing him well on his spiritual journey and thankful for all of his devoted work. We only know of him through you. Thank you for being an incredible inspiration and devotee of the animals. – Dave & Cheryl Hopkins

My donation is in honor of Marlene Dembin’s Birthday Wish, on Facebook. – Gail Dembin

In memory of the gentle turkey who suffered at the hands of the University of Kansas Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. My heart hurts for you. – Jennifer Stevens

My donation is in memory of Ricky, my little rooster who was on the Chicken Run Rescue Calendar in 2012 for September. He was a very special bird. I can still remember the day we rescued him from the feed store. He was on a perch all by himself. The things he did were so special. He used to walk with me and I would call and he would come running. He was the protector of his small flock of Modern Game hens who were also rescued from the feed store. His memory will always be with me. He passed away from a short illness in November. He was only two years old. – Victoria Figurelli

In memory of Bob Auerbach, who died on Dec. 26 at age 92 after being struck by a hit-and-run driver while walking to the Post Office in Greenbelt, Maryland. Bob was the first chairman of the Maryland Green Party. He was the Green Party’s nominee for Congress for Maryland’s 5th District several times, most recently in the 2012 election. Bob was a vigorous animal rights supporter who was active in all progressive causes since the 1930s. Bob and his daughter Hopi were two of the first people I met when I joined the Animal Rights movement in the early 1980s. I ran into Bob a couple of years ago at the Washington, DC Green Festival. He was just the same – sweet, kind, and totally committed to nonviolence and justice for all. – Karen Davis

My memorial donation is to stop the abuse of all poultry. Their lives are so terrible. We should be ashamed. How can we humans be so cruel to living animals? The cages, the transports, the cruel killings, all done by cruel humans for greed. – Hilde Wilson

My gift is in honor of All God’s Creatures. – Brien Comerford
