WILL YOU HELP US GET HOME? RAMONA, POWDER, CASSIDY, CHEYENNE AND MERCY NEED YOUR HELP!
HELP SENIOR PIT BULLS IN DESPERATE NEED!
RAMONA, POWDER, CASSIDY, CHEYENNE AND MERCY are currently living in a boarding facility which provides for their basic needs but keeps these seniors conﬁned in small spaces with limited recreation, little affection and no access to the outside unless provided by our volunteers. Due to wildﬁre displacement, we were forced to close our sanctuary in 2016. With no other options available we had no choice but to board our senior and abused dogs in boarding facilities across the Los Angeles area. Being forced to pay in some cases, extremely high boarding fees.
As a non-proﬁt organization, this has drained our reserves.
We evacuated 31 Pit Bulls over the last 16 months who have either found new homes or have relocated to our beautiful, temporary sanctuary in Utah. Only Ramona, Powder, Cassidy, Cheyenne and Mercy remain in boarding and we have been trying to work with the boarder to free our dogs and set up a payment plan to honor our remaining fees.
Our angels are getting depressed and giving up. MERCY is especially vulnerable; she is no longer interested in walks with our volunteer. She just wants to lie on the ﬂoor of her small space.
We are committed to freeing our dogs and taking them to Utah. As retirees they will live out the rest of their lives surrounded with loving care, enjoying hikes, long walks and loads of hugs and kisses. This is where they belong. We desperately need YOUR help to pay our remaining fees and free these angels who until we rescued them, lived lives of fear and extreme abuse. Please HELP us give them the kind of life they deserve. We THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for ANY donation that will help FREE Ramona, Powder, Cassidy, Cheyenne and Mercy!
What is in it for YOU? We are currently doing a 50/50 challenge. The first 50 people to give $50.00 or more, will receive a SIGNED copy of Dog's at the Beach. Co-written by our SMAF team member Anne Stafford with Ashley Rabb and Jeanette Haxton. This is a book you will cherish! You will also receive updates on our precious senior dogs as they make their journey home!
A Little History About Us: The St. Martin's Animal Foundation was established in June 1999, due to the rising numbers of animals being abused and in despair. We opened our sanctuary in Acton, CA which became home to many abused and misunderstood animals. Sixteen months ago our beloved sanctuary had to be relocated due to the wildfires that continually threatened the safety of our animals. This left many of our Senior dogs displaced. Some went in to foster care, while the hard to place dogs had to go into boarding due to lack of qualified fosters. I spent the last sixteen months desperately searching for a place to relocate my sanctuary as affordable land that will accommodate an animal sanctuary is extremely difficult to find. Thankfully, we were able to find land to rent in Southern Utah (7 hours away from these dogs) which is now being used as our temporary home until we can find affordable land in Southern California. For now, Utah is home and we are looking forward to having ALL our animals back with us... where they belong!
