Currently in the works and
due for a September release, Home on
the Range
is to be a CD compilation presented by nonprofit
organization Compassionate Farming
Education Initiative (CFEI)
to benefit farm animal sanctuaries, which
rescue and advocate for animals that have suffered abuse and neglect. With a
still growing list of 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.

 
Kneel Cohn of The Dead Stars on Hollywood
conceived Home on the Range as
a way for artists who believe in the cause to support the sanctuaries through
their music. In a statement Cohn explaind, “As a musician, an animal rights
advocate and vegan, I was driven to incorporate these passions and
conceptualize an ambitious multi-faceted benefit project, rallying like-minded
musicians who wanted to help create a substantial contribution to the
movement.”   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. “The dedicated booklet is designed to promote awareness and
education while encouraging people to make more compassionate choices from a
place of empowerment, rather than out of habit or routine.” Cohn added.

 

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.
