During these rough and trying times, many of us are experiencing many different uncertainties ranging from job loss to toilet paper shortages and beyond. If you happen to be in a place that you can help, we could certainly use your support, now more than ever.
When the Covid-19 pandemic reached us, we felt the immediate impact. We rely heavily on our community to help us maintain our Farm and Sanctuary. Donations to help pay for feed, supplies, animal housing repairs and vet bills and volunteers to help us maintain the grounds and help with the animals. With the job losses, shelter in place still in affect, and many of our community businesses closed, we do not have the volunteer, monetary or supply donations coming in that we rely on to run our Sanctuary. We are home to 129 animals, the majority with special needs (like our little but mighty goat, Nemo, who is in desperate need of a prosthetic).
We have applied for the emergency relief loans, but with no luck. So we are turning to you for help. With your support behind us and a few miracles, we will be able to keep our doors open and welcome many more animals in need.
If you are in the position to donate, please do. GoFundMe Charities will donate $1,000 to the first 300 non-profits who raise a minimum of $1,000 from 10 different donors until May 5th. We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for any and all support you may be able to give us. Thank you, and stay safe!
A little about us!
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit farm animal rescue and sanctuary located in Napa, California, providing a safe haven for animals in need of a permanent home and facilitating adoptions for those rehabilitated.
Our mission is to provide a safe and loving place for farm animals that are in need of a home, that would otherwise be deemed un-adoptable or a lost cause. We are home to many animals that require supplements, pain medications, or special care.
In the event that an individual can't make a benefit off of livestock, they will simply terminate them. We would much rather take on that creature and rehabilitation to adoption if possible.
We want to give 4H students an alternative outcome for their raised pets, by reaching out to our local FFA chapter presidents and other farm sanctuaries. With an end goal to diminish lethal livestock barters, we would urge live sales to companion homes. Educating and providing alternative options to fatal auctions of livestock animals. Such as weed abatement/fire prevention jobs, cruelty-free petting zoos, natural agricultural ground tilling and fertilization, companion/emotional support animals. Working with local fairground auctioneers, changing rules to allow the option of live sales. Helping kids learn about caring for creatures, rewarding them for doing so, while saving the lives of many.
Educating the public about animal friendly lifestyle choices.
Farm animals have so much love to give. Just like cats or dogs they are capable of emotions and so much personality. Did you know you can train a goat just like a dog?
