WHO ARE WE:  Our Animal Rescue Place Inc. has been a self funded animal rescue/rehabilitation/refuge for over 20 years.
We are now a registered NotForProfit charity.
We are volunteer only~no wage is paid to anyone.
All funds go directly to animals.
I'm  Angel ~ my daughter and I have been vegan/ animal rescue/ rehab/rehome/refuge / animal rights activists all our lives.  We ran our Our Animal Rescue Place together for many years then dedicated vegan animal rescuer ARA convert West joined us and we moved to our current location. WHAT WE NEED RIGHT NOW:
FEED COSTS- we are now depending on donations to feed all these animals.
VET CARE-  to cover ongoing vetcare & meds and any emergencies. A young bull needs castration and a handicapped mini stallion and a mini colt need gelding.
We care for all species- our residents & rescues are domestic-livestock- native & introduced. 
Many of our residents have special needs (blind/ deaf/ wheelchair/ diabetic/ intellectually handicapped/ crippled - many are elderly and many have spent most of their life here living as a family.
Some are wild animals rehab'd and released here where they have freedom- safety- food & water.
We are on call to rescue and rehabilitate.
WHY A FINANCIAL CRISIS:  We recently got to the finish of 7 year court case about a rescue of abandoned negeclect horses and cows that left us bankrupt & we lost our property.
We had to borrow money to move from a lush grazing area with abundant water to a rental place with no established fencing-no stables- no grass 8mnths of the year & no dams.
We now depend on bucket feeding, buying in hay all year round and mains tap water- this is a huge expense.
BLEAK FUTURE FOR ANIMALS IF WE CLOSE; Rehoming animals is difficult and it's traumatic for them. They don't understand losing their home, their friends and their family. Harder still to rehome animals with special needs with ongoing work and medication. Many of the animals here come from such abusive backgrounds that it's a miracle they ever learned to trust us- there is no chance they could stablise in new circumstances.OUR OWN FINACIAL AND TIME COMMITMENT:  This is our life work- these animals depend on us-we are their family, their carers and we know each one of them..their needs, their personalies and little quirks.We don't have social lives- this place and these animals are our life and passion.OUR INCOME: no-one here has ever drawn a wage in any way via helping animals in need.  There are no bonus financial perks for humans here. We do this for animals.THIS IS MY LIFE'S WORK AND NOW I NEED YOUR HELP:  We give all our time and all our money, heart and soul to animals.Now I'm asking you to join in and take part in providing these rescued victims in food and medical care.You can help by donating regularly or commiting to sponsoring someone.

YOU can rescue them now- help keep this place going so all these animals can continue with their happy lives here and not be torn apart- or worse.
Their safety is in serious jeopardy.
No amount is too small- it all adds up.
*All donations over $2 are tax deductible as are all goods and services donated.
Thank you for your time spent reading this.

Thanks again to those who have help keep the animals here at Our Animal Rescue Place safe here in there own home.
Please continue to chip in to support them. At this point they are 100% dependent on community support.
They are not safe this place will close any time without your ongoing support.
I'm Angel- I'm doing everything I can personally to keep these animals safe. I've put in everything I've got but it's not enough on my low income so my daughter and I are opening a store and taking time away from the animals to focus on what we can do to raise funds in any way we can. I've been committed to animal rescue all my life, my focus has always been on the animals themselves but I also know the animal welfare system very well and with time to focus our skills in that area we're confident we can save everyone here if we have community support to keep running.

On behalf of all the animals here, thank you to everyone who has already joined in their care and donated to support them and those who have volunteered here hands on or given their time online.
It takes a community to care for rescue animals- they are not pets- they are no-ones possession.
Our Animal Rescue Place is Your Animal Rescue Place.

Our gofundme account it empty again as we go into our hot dry grassless summer we'll need all the help we can get to feed everyone by hand. The water costs will also be extreme. (Although we're asking for volunteers to help fit in a more effective and more cost efficient water system- we have the equipment already- just need the will workers).
Those of you who are donating to us are now fully supporting these animals. Thank you from us and
on behalf of the animals here who remain serenely oblivious to the dramas and stresses of human life and fundraising, Our Animal Rescue Place thanks you.

The gofundme account is now empty as we draw from it regularly to pay for feed and costs.
We can only continue to provide for these animals with your ongoing support via donation or sponsorship.
We appreciate your ongoing participation which allows us to continue the vital work we do.
Thank you to those who have donated- we would have already shut down without your support.
If we work together, each of us doing the part we can- we can keep these animals safe.

The animals now depend 100% on community support via your donations and fundraisers to keep their home.
This gofundme is emptied weekly for immediate needs ie: feeds & shelter.
Right now we're fundraising for next weeks feeds & rent and for the very necessary castration of one of the bulls - which is $500 and will be done here at home gently,
Please continue to help either by donation to this gofundme or via our website donation link.

*Thank you to those who have generously contributed to support the animals here @ - your support is very much appreciated by everyone here.
