Help Me Save Animals From Slaughter

My name is Olivia harmon and I've been rescuing animals ever since I was little first started out with rescuing bugs and lizards but as I got older , I started rescuing dogs and cats. I'm 15 years old now , a sophomore in high school and about a year ago i rescued my first farm animal . She was a 300 pound farm pig that was going to be auctioned at the local fair to be slaughtered but I contacted the owner and after a long time of convincing him , he finally agreed to release Indie to me ( short for independence since I got her on the 5th of July ) I took her to LAanimalrescue and she has been there ever since .... Then about 3 months ago I was volunteering at a horse festival that my horseback riding barn was hosting for rescued miniature horses from slaughter and I met India a 600 pound black angus steer , he was brought to the festival for a petting zoo and was from the FFA program .... I asked the owner if he would get killed and she told me he would .... I told her what I could do for him and again after a long time of convincing she finally agreed to release him to me but I would have to pay back the money she invested him. she could have easily taken him to auction and sold him for 6000+ but she was kind enough to let me get him for 3000 which is half then she would've gotten for him at auction . I need donations to help me pay for him and everything he might need health wise ! The owner of India ( the steer) has a friend who owns a sheep named Alice and she told her about what I do, the owner immediately contacted me and asked if I would be able to save her sheep as well, I researched how much sheep go for auction and it was about 900. I told her I don't like buying animals out so she agreed to sell her to me for 400 since she has invested 500+ in her . I need help to pay for her and her spay ! The word got around at the FFA program that I was saving Alice the sheep and India the steer and another girl contacted me asking if I could rescue her farm pig , so right now I am in the process( along with saving India and Alice ) to save cheero the pig as well. She is going to be surrendered to me because I told the owner I just cannot pay for another animal. So now I have to find funds to help with cheeros spay as well! I am also rescuing a family of sheep off of Craigslist ( mom dad and new born baby ) the owner was selling them because she has a human baby on the way... she had the sheep as pets and didn't want them to get slaughtered but just needed to get rid of them so she didn't have time to make sure it was a safe home ... I contacted her and told her what I do and how I could promise their safety so she is surrendering them to me as well. Legend animal rescue has agreed to take them so I need help with all of their spays and neuters + gas since they are 3 hours away one way.. Then Someone else over Instagram saw my account (@happyhoovesrescue) and saw all the animals I'm rescuing and asked me if I would be able to take in her black angus steer from the FFA program , just like India , but at a different farm . So Hercules, the steer is going to be surrendered to me and I need help to pay for transportation and gas since he is 2 hours away from my house and the sanctuary willing to take him is 10 hours away, one way.... while all of this was going on , I was scrolling thru Craigslist when I saw an add for a calf , I called the owner immediately and told him what I could do for the calf and he wasn't thrilled , he didn't care whether the calf went to a good home or slaughter . I asked if he would be willing to take a $200 gift card to Home Depot and he accepted ! I need help to pay for the gift card and the calf is filled with worms so I need to get him the medical attention he needs which is going to be soooo expensive . He is going to live at Legend Animal Rescue in Ramona ! I came across another calf for sale , this one was much smaller and a girl , I txted the owner and after a lot of negotiation I got him to take a $100 gift card to Home Depot ! I'm going to take her to Farmanimalrefuge if I can get all the donations needed in time !! In the picture I saw if her, it is clear that they are not giving her the proper medical attention she needs so I need help to get her all up to date on vaccines !! I need all the help I can possibly get . Shares are greatly appreciated and when you donate you become apart of this rescue mission with me ! Time is running out quick and I need as much support as I can receive! Thank you so much!
