   We all wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving!  We have taken pictures from this years blog as a Thanksgiving tribute to all the blessings that have come our way this year.

  We are  thankful that through your support we were able to provide so much medical care for so many animals in need.

  We are thankful that Brianna was here to assist with the baby goat rescue where we rescued 50 baby goats at one time!  It would have been a lot harder without all the volunteers that stepped forward to help with those little guys.

  We are thankful that through your support we were able to provide low cost gelding certificates to the public.  Unwanted horses were never born thanks to you!

  We are thankful that through your support we were able to purchase 20 acres of land for the new facility.  The mortgage is slowly being paid down every month!

  We are thankful that the name change is going so smoothly.  Make sure you name your organization the right name the first time, you never know how your organization will grow, you don’t want to outgrow your name.

    We are thankful that Tawnee didn’t hit Skids and he now has a great home at a pigeon sanctuary.

  1. This is beautiful, happy and sad, beautiful beacause of all the lovely animals, happy because all of the precious lives that have been saved and sad because it shows there are innocent animals out there suffering due to the cruel actions of man, I wish every animal could have a happy ending like the ones on here xxx
