Our Mission is to provide a forever home for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted animals regardless of breed, color or gender. We also care for those animals with issues or challenges.
Many animal shelters say that they are no-kill, but they do euthanize animals. We are different because we are a no-kill sanctuary where all the animals we rescue stay here until they pass on.
We do what we do because it's the right thing to do. According to the Humane Society, every year, 4 million dogs are sent to shelters and of those 1.2 million are euthanized. Every year, 3.4 million cats are sent to shelters and 1.4 million of those are killed. These statistics are staggering. Other sources state that 56% of all dogs who enter a shelter are killed and 71% of cats are euthanized.
And then there is the horse issue: according to stats on line, 20,000 thoroughbred foals are born every year and 10,000 of them end up in a slaughter house. That's just thoroughbreds. The Humane Society claims that every year, over 100,000 horses are sent to their death in a slaughter house.
Our services are funded entirely by donations and we need your help in order to rescue more animals and provide a lasting home for them. We do not pay ourselves a penny for the time we spend caring for the animals and maintaining the sanctuary.
We have four rescued dogs who are spending the rest of their lives here. I order 6 bags of Taste of the Wild every four weeks and at $44.00 a bag, we spend $264.00 a month on their food. Also, we supplement their dinners with organic oatmeal and eggs.
Hay is a big expense for the three rescued horses, and generally 90 bales are delivered every month. We use over 1000 bales a year, and at $5.00 a bale, that's a huge chunk of change.
We need your help in order to rescue and home more animals. We spend 70% of our income on feeding the animals we have rescued; 10% on office expenses; 10% on bedding; and 10% on veterinarian and farrier services.
Someday, with your help, we want to move to an area better suited for having animals so that we can expand our rescue efforts. .
Also, we want to offer our services to those folks who are seriously ill and can not care for their pets. We will contact every hospital and cancer center in NH so they can let their patients who own animals that we will care for their pets until they are better; and if the patient transitions, their animal will have a forever home with us. Knowing that someone is caring for their beloved pet will take a huge burden off a sick person.
Now, all we have to do is find the funding for our programs. Your donations are tax deductible and will be put to good use. Bless you.
