We've been so hard at work with this rebuild project that our fundraising efforts have taken a back seat and our checking account is showing it.
We are in desperate need of donations. We need to raise $670 before October 12th to cover last month's building expenses and we need to raise an additoinal $650 by November 15th to cover our sanctuary's next feed shipment.
If you haven't donated recently, please consider doing so, we promise to put it to excellent use caring for our rescued ducks & geese!
