Caring for the Animals:
At the heart of our sanctuary’s mission is providing compassionate care to our farm animal residents. This means meeting their unique needs, ensuring their health and happiness, and offering them a safe and nurturing environment. Countless hours are spent feeding, watering, and tending to the individual requirements of each animal. It is a labor of love that requires unwavering commitment and a deep understanding of their well-being.
The Financial Load:
Running a farm animal sanctuary comes with significant financial responsibilities. We rely on the support of our compassionate community to cover the costs associated with our operations. Numerous expenses must be considered, from feed and medical supplies to shelter maintenance and staffing. Through the generosity of individuals like you, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of our residents.
Let’s delve into some of the essential monthly expenses that we face:
- Feed: Our residents consume a substantial amount of food. A nutritious diet requires a significant quantity of hay, pellets, and specialized feed tailored to their needs.
- Veterinary Care: Regular check-ups, vaccinations, and medical treatments are vital for the health and well-being of our animals. These expenses can quickly add up, but they are necessary to ensure their quality of life.

- Staffing: Our dedicated team of caregivers works tirelessly to provide round-the-clock attention and care. Proper staffing is essential to meet the needs of our animals and ensure their happiness and well-being.
Volunteers and Community Support:
In addition to financial contributions, the support of volunteers and the community plays a crucial role in running a thriving sanctuary. Volunteers assist with various tasks, including cleaning, cuddling and providing social interaction to help with enrichment. Their dedication and selflessness contribute immensely to the overall well-being of our residents. Through spreading awareness, attending events, and fundraising efforts, community involvement helps sustain the sanctuary and expand our impact.
