Our goal is to make sure as many animals as possible live the lives they are meant to live. We take in injured, orphaned, neglected, abused, abandoned & unwanted animals. We heal their bodies and repair their spirits. Our goal with the wildlife is to return them to the wild. Other animals may be adopted out, become ambassadors for their species and educators for humans, or just live out their lives at the sanctuary.

Impact Statement
Needs Statement
*Electric Service-For the welfare of the animals we need to add electric service to an area of pasture land to enable us to have coolers and lights available. We have had several estimates and the lowest we have gotten is approx $20000. This is from Peace River to add a pole and meter half way down the property line then another electrician to run the service to all the areas/barns on that 8+ ac parcel.
*Animal Food Expenses-Between hay, feed & supplements we spend $2000-$3000 a month
*Vet Care/ Animal Care-While this varies tremendously between routine vet care, shearing, the farrier and specialty services (vet dentist etc) we easily avg $2000-$3000 a month.
*Cargo Van-The van we use to transport pallets of food for our food bank as well as to transport animals is wearing out. If we are going to continue to provide food thru the food bank to other organizations and people in need we will need to replace this van soon. Replacement costs are $20000 - $30000.
*Volunteer Handyman/General Volunteers/Pasture Management Expert-We try to keep up with all the maintenance and upkeep around the farm but really need to have someone out here a couple days a week to help with this. This would be a huge benefit to the animals and people alike for safety, improvements and just general upkeep.
Volunteers are an ongoing need. We need help with special projects, animal care/grooming, fundraising etc. An expert in land management is need to help us optimize & maintain our pastures to benefit the animals as well as the land.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Description Animal care is the major service we provide. We take in numerous animals that have no where else to go. We work with the public, animal services, fish & wildlife, the sheriffs dept and other rescue groups to do what we can.

Population Served General/Unspecified
Short Term Success
Internal improvements are made as we can. We continue to evaluate the facility to see where improvements can be made to improve quality of life of the animals we care for. We get continuous feedback from staff and volunteers who keep a close eye on all of our residents.We consider all aspects of care to be important including environment, diet, medical care and enrichment. A major project right now is improving the land for use by assessing needs for drainage, pasture management, etc.
Long Term Success We moved our facility to a property in Parrish. We are now in a more convenient location & have more space which will enable us to provide better quality care which we continue to work on daily.
Program Success Monitoring
Short term success can be seen in outcomes. Medical needs and diet are assessed by condition. We work closely with our vets to make sure everyone gets what they need. Enrichment plays a big part in this as well. We try to get everyone into the most natural conditions possible. Environment is a constant project. We are always trying to maintain the land in the best possible shape. Pasture rotation, reseeding etc. is ongoing.
Program Success Examples
We have just about completed a room for our small primates.While they have a large enclosure this will allow them to exercise more naturally and safely as well as provide major enrichment for them.
We maintain a food bank for other rescues and individuals in need. We pick up, transport and store pet food and produce for animal use.

Population Served Other Named Groups Other Named Groups
Short Term Success
By doing this we have enabled rescue groups to continue their work and individuals to keep their pets.
Long Term Success
We distribute over 52,000 lbs of pet food/litter and approx 2500 boxes of produce a year to a number of different rescue groups and individuals in need to help with animal care.
Program Success Monitoring
We are continuously told by rescue groups and individuals that they couldn't continue caring for or keep their pets without this food.
Program Success Examples
Over the years we have provided food to numerous groups. A few of our regulars are Safe Haven, Royal Rescue, Save Our Seabirds and Animal Network.
While we do a great job taking care of the animals here many would benefit from being in a family situation. We always place the animals needs first and do what is best for them. Quality of life is very important. If they can benefit from being placed in another home then that becomes our goal. This also make a space for another special needs animal.
Budget $5,000
Category Animal-Related, General/Other Animal Ownership
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served General/Unspecified
Short Term Success
When we place animals appropriately we all benefit. The animal had his or her own special home and we have more timeand space for the ones we have and /or the ability to take in another.
Long Term Success
With our adoption program we have an agreement that the animal comes back to us if it doesn't work out. Over the years I believe there have only been 3 instances of animals returning to us. We try very hard to make the right match the first time but are well aware that life situations change.
Program Success Monitoring
Our adoption application is somewhat cumbersome but gives us a good idea if that home is the right home for the animal they are interested in. This has helped tremendously to prevent mismatches. It allows us to see if they really know what they are getting into and if they are interested enough to learn what they need to know about that particular animals needs.
Program Success Examples
We have placed hundreds of animals and still hear from a number of our adopters.
We just recently placed 3 pigs which are difficult to place. All of them found wonderful homes.Two of them are educating the public about pigs out at Crowley's Museum. This is a major bonus!
We are utilized as a community service organization. We have high school students who need community service hours as well as minor criminal offenders who work their time off here. This is a benefit to the individuals, the community and our animals.
Budget $5,000

Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) Offenders/Ex-Offenders Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers
Short Term Success
Some will go on to specialize in environmental /animal sciences. Some will gain a new respect for animals and their 'jobs' on a farm. Some will gain nothing - they just put their time in.
Long Term Success
No matter who is involved there is always some type of education that occurs. Some benefit more than others. No matter what you are involved in at the farm you learn about animals and their care, safety for animals and humans alike, dedication and committment. The animals benefit no matter what.
Program Success Monitoring
The county has records of individuals needing to do community service. I'd like to think the percentage of repeat offenders would be a measurement of how well the program works. As far as students go - time will tell. It all helps in the process of deciding what they want to do with their lives.
Program Success Examples
One community service worker went on to obtain a job with another animal related facility.
One of our past volunteer students is going on to specialize in animal rights law.
Two of our student volunteers are planning to go to vet school.
We try to educate the public in a number of ways. We do as many of the community events and classroom programs as we can manage. We also help others with materials and info for classroom programs. We continuously give out info via phone & the internet when people have concerns, problems or situations involving animals. We also work closely with other rescues so as many animals as possible get the care they need.

Short Term Success
Every time someone takes an interest in an animal we all win. When an animal comes to us, whether it's from injury, abuse, abandonment, neglect, misinformation or special needs etc., we all learn. Changes can then be made. We can tell a lot about our environment and world by rescues and make changes to benefit all of us. For example we found out about pesticide toxicity when eagles had major egg issues. This list is endless.
Long Term Success
Education, especially with kids, save far more animals then anyone can imagine. Kids become natural teachers when you give them the appropriate information. They will earnestly pass this info onto the adults in their lives. By distributing as much information as we can about specific species, animal care, how to handle animal emergencies, when NOT to rescue & how to reunite babies with their parents as well as other options available to individuals we save an immense number of animals each year.
Program Success Monitoring
We try to look at the number of animals we save from 'rescue'. with our assistance some can stay with their human families, some are reunited with their animal parents rather than "stolen". Sometimes we need to teach that some must be lost to the natural cycle of life & death. (We get many calls about hawks taking birds from bird feeders - that is what they do. If you take their meal they have to find another one!)
Program Success Examples
1.About 20 calls a year where birds are put back in nests and reunited with their familes - dispelling the myth that once you touch them the mothers won't take them back - birds have a very poor sense of smell.
2.Approx a dozen calls a year where fawns are left for their mothers rather then being 'stolen' and brought in for care once people know that deer leave their fawns for the day.
3.Another dozen calls about turtles and tortoises that people want to relocate because they aren't in a safe place until they realize the harm they do in moving them (not to mention the laws about it)
