NEW YORK (PIX11) — Catskill Animal Sanctuary has always been eager to support anyone who wants to commit to veganism, especially during the holiday season.

The nonprofit, which operates a refuge for rescued farm animals in Saugerties, New York, also recently launched New Leaf, a program designed to help people kickstart their vegan journey through virtual cooking classes and mentoring.
