What: Carl’s Third Birthday! 🐮

When: October 13th from 1-4pm

Where: IFS, of course!

Why: Help us celebrate the triumph of one tiny calf and the compassion that saved his life! Carl the cow was rescued from a veal auction (and certain death) just a few days before our very first fall fundraiser. His fate was uncertain, he was so tiny and his health was so poor-- we did not know if we would ever celebrate his first birthday. Carl defied all odds and has grown to be an incredibly healthy, hilarious, and loving cow— and now we get to celebrate his THIRD birthday!!! ♥️

Purchase your ticket/shirt at

That’s right, just buy a “Golly Gee, Carl is 3” limited edition shirt— it will count as your ticket! 👕

Can’t come to the party but still want a Carl shirt? That’s cool too! Shop away! If you do plan to attend the party, make sure to wear your shirt!

More details to come! We sure hope you'll join us! 🎉
