Farmhouse Animal & Nature Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit farm and exotic
animal sanctuary. Animals come to the sanctuary for many different reasons
including, neglect, abandonment, medically needy and simply because their
families can no longer care for them. Why they came here isnít as important as
how they will live out the remainder of their lives, feeling safe and secure in
as natural a habitat as possible. Our mission is to care for the animals to the
best of our ability and to educate the public on animal care.
Our 8' high stockade perimeter fence at the sanctuary is in dis-repair and no longer can be patched in. We have been band-aiding the fence for many years. This is going to be a very costly and time consuming project but is an urgent need to keep the animals safe and secure, by keeping predators out and the sanctuary animals in. Currently, we are unable to use over one acre of property, which includes two pastures, because so many fence sections are down in this area.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! There are 269 8' sections of fence that need to be replaced including rotting 4x4 posts. The total cost to replace the 2152 linear feet of fence is estimated to cost $50,000- $60,000 if replaced with new 8' tall stockade fence or metal sheeting. A wonderful local business, Old School Site Prep & Land Maintenance, has committed to donating enough repurposed telephone poles, that have been cut with a flat back, to create a very unique, sturdy and long-lasting fence. This will save the sanctuary over $30,000. We however still need to raise $21,000 to purchase 4x4 posts, cross braces, fasteners, labor to install and rental of backhoe to clear the existing fence line. We can't do this without your help!
