Over the past few months we have been “testing the waters” so to speak, with our conversion to a farm animal sanctuary. Checking in with ourselves to see if this is something we are truly ready to take on, looking to see if there is a need, feeling out if we will have support, making connections and continuing our personal education. What we have found is that in our hearts, our desire to work for the animals only continues to grow. In the past 2 weeks we have been contacted to help in 3 rescue situations indicating that there is clearly a need. We continue to meet amazing people and are re-inspired each time we are able to plant a seed or see another heart open. Yes, this is truly the direction we need to take and it is time for us to take the next steps. Up until this point we have been funded solely by our family and a few donations from friends. In order for us to safely provide the best life and care for more animals we will need more funding sources. We are beginning the process of becoming a non-profit. This will open up more opportunities for us for funding and credibility. We are ready to create more space for animals in need. Jon and I continue to educate ourselves. We wish to inspire a shift in perspective. Caring, advocating, educating and mentoring for the animals through making connections, empowering hearts and opening minds to make conscious and compassionate choices for the animals, the Earth and ourselves. We are planning more opportunities for community, visits, volunteering and connecting. We are asking for your help. Please consider donating; your donations will help fund expansion, supplies, food and medical funds so we are able to help more animals as well as the funding of our non-profit set up. If you are interested in volunteering to help with building, with the animals or with our compassionate fiber project, please contact us. Donations of building materials, fencing and supplies are greatly appreciated – please contact us if you have something you would like to donate. Ideas and support are also essential! Do you have experience or ideas you would like to share? Suggestions for fund raising? We’d love to hear from you. Please also share this widely. We can do this together! For the animals, the Earth and ourselves.
Thank you for your support!
