Mission

To provide a well equipped, healing environment for abused (and injured by abuse,) neglected and emaciated animals. Our Mission is to give each animal a second chance at life providing urgent medical care, weight gain and management programs, skeletal therapies, emotional support and unconditional love. We are a 501c3, bovine, backyard farm and equine animal rescue sanctuary near Waco, Texas. Established in 2013 in WY as a personally funded rescue, we accepted our first rescue in 2015. We became an official Rescue Sanctuary in 2017 providing quality rescue, care, treatment and housing of horses and other backyard bovine and farm animals that suffer from abuse, neglect, and urgent needs. Our Goal is to continue to be able receive, care for and rehabilitate these very special rescue animals.

Notes from the nonprofit

We have been highly successful in our efforts to maintain our facility and pastures, and in receiving and caring for those animals who are in desperate need. And we aim to remain that way, always. With your donations (monetarily or in product) we will remain successful, and continue to receive animals in need, and give them the urgent and proper care they need. CURRENTLY we are experiencing an unexpected drought, and need assistance with a purchase of feed and hay, since our grazing pastures are dwindling quickly. We sincerely hope that you will consider donating to our Rescue Sanctuary, and we thank you so much for caring.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

To reduce and ultimately stop the abuse, injury from abuse, neglect and malnutrition in backyard equine farm animals, all of which result in an animal's need to be rescued. To assist in preventing the need for an animal to urgently need the services of urgent care animal rescues by educating backyard farm, livestock and equine pet owners that house these backyard animals, on the need for understanding the financial responsibilities of housing and caring for these animals as pets, and ensuring that animal owners have done due diligence to the animal by doing proper research on that animal(s) needs, prior to obtaining. To Stop Impulse BUYING/ADOPTING: Many people are undereducated regarding these animal's needs, and obtain ownership on impulse, resulting in the animal not being cared for properly, misinformation, no research on the financial responsibilities of owning these animals, and misinformation or no information on properly rehoming animals when they can longer keep them.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Weight Gain/Management Programs - Emaciated BackYard Equine/Farm Animals

-Provide weight gain of emaciated animals.

Weight mgmnt for those who have gained the needed amount of weight: Winter supplemental feedings, supplemental grains, weight managing oils, probiotics, etc.

Provide emotional/physical support, daily strength building exercises, training and love.

-Project Outcome

Progress/Succeed in necessary weight gain/maintenance.

Improvements in intestinal/overall health; mental/emotional health; post rescue.

Educate via social media/in person: costs of feed, vet bills, emergency veterinary bills. etc.

Educate for proper housing, allocation of grazing land per animal, nutrition; including but not limited to pound of feed per animal, costs.

Educate backyard animal owners in the nature, needs/progression (size, etc., ) of these animals to lessen/put an end to, impulse buying/adopting.

Educate to recognize magnitude of backyard equine/farm animal responsibility.

-Strategies

Provide proper care, emotional/physical support, proper nutrition during and after rehabilitation. Educate on that care etc.

Educating through our website and social media, community members within our project areas and beyond, on the responsibilities of backyard farm animal, livestock, equine ownership as "backyard pets," and the needs each animal has.

Educate what happens to animals when they cannot be cared for properly, are mistreated, abused (as a result of frustration of not understanding the animal,) undernourished and malnourished (as a result of not being able to afford to feed or care for the animal,) by showing before photos of our rescues, and relaying each animal's story.

Work with city and town councils, etc., to change laws about allowing certain farm animals within city limits, where proper housing is not possible, and establish a need for backyard animal welfare checks.

-OUR CAPABILITIES

High level of social media presence and website, and marketing expertise to get the word out.

High level of training and education is a combination of 50 years of knowledge of farm animals, livestock and equine; including but not limited to their care, housing and space needs, feed needs, general health, potential health problems, medical needs, limited emergency life saving techniques, grooming etc.,

315+ Acres with an eight stall barn, infirmary, vet room.

One Veterinarian (and staff) available 24/7 for emergencies.

One Veterinarian (and staff) available during normal business hours.

Two Farriers - One availabe 24/7 for emergencies.

One Emotional Support Therapist.

One Pulse Electro Magnetic Field therapist

One Skeletal Therapist

Two Chiropractors

Two infirmary corrals, one infirmary pasture.

Three large and rotating pastures.

Two infirmary ponds for waterfowl rescues and aquatics (Turtles.)

Successful Hay Field.

-Side-note: We are specific

We have accomplished much in educating people in Backyard Equine/Farm Animal Ownership. We have also accomplished 15 rescues as of 2017 that we completely rehabilitated and readied for work and/or adoption for retirement. These ranged from ducks, turkeys,peacocks, turtles, micro pigs, pot bellied pigs, miniature horses/ponies/donkies/cows, average sized horses and draft horses.

We have used our success stories of our rescues to educate people on what it takes to care for these animals, and the monetary amount it takes, so that people understand the magnitude of responsibility in caring for a backyard equine/farm animal. This has helped many people have a keener understanding in what these animals needs are, and has drastically reduced impulse buying/adopting in areas such as Social Media Groups, etc. We will continue to save lives, and we will continue to educate why not to react on impulse.

By doing both; we will continue to help those, who cannot help themselves.
