Why We Need Your Help!

In March of 2017 we were hit by a terrible blizzard. We did not know at the time that our barn had sustained structural damage to the roof. We discovered it a couple of months later. We were very lucky not to have lost our roof. It came close. Nearly 6,000 nails needed to be removed and replaced with screws to secure the roof. But further inspection showed other problems which were much worse than anticipated. In order to protect the barn's structural integrity, we had no choice but to put in a ceiling. However, once this project was looked into, it was also discovered that the people who built the barn nearly 30 years ago had taken some shortcuts that put the barn in further jeopardy. All of this had to be fixed or we risked losing our whole roof in a strong wind.

Out of Bad News Comes Good

The bad news was that this now became an extensive project and one that had to be done. However, the good news is that once finished, we have a whole new and improved barn for our aged and special needs horses, donkeys, ponies, goats, ducks, chickens, and goose. With the ceiling, the barn will now be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. We are also upgrading all of our lighting to more energy efficient lights that will save us a lot of money. And we are totally replacing the 30 year old wiring and switches so that we have a safer barn as well. It is turning out to be a complete makeover that will help our animals immensely.

Our budget however is taking an awful hit. We didn't see this coming and couldn't have planned for this needed outlay of cash. But with winter approaching again, we had to move fast.

Double Your Dollars!

Two very generous donors have stepped forward to match all donations from September 1 - October 31st up to $30,000. Your donation will be worth twice as much. If we can make this goal - we will cover the cost of the entire project. Please help us Raise the Roof for the many barn animals in our care so that they can continue to live in safety and even more comfort than we could offer before. You can help to make a big difference in their lives.

Please go to our Donation Page to find links to our secure donation page, PayPal, and all the information you need to mail or phone in your donation. Every penny will be matched up to $30,000.

Thank you so much for your support and caring!
