The sanctuary was devastated by a house fire in 2022.  Fortunately none of the residents were injured, but they’ve been struggling to recover ever since.  We’re hoping to help them get back on track, so we’re heading back.  They need lots of supplies for the house and animals.  If you can help in that manner, please reach out to us for details.  If you’d like to donate, you can do so at the sanctuary or online at:
