Hi, we are Sacred Grounds Rescue a small 501c3 non profit organization outside of Wikieup AZ.  Although we are a horse rescue we have blended to the needs of the surrounding communities and also take in goats sheep llamas alpacas burros mules cattle duck chickens and more.  We began in 2002 and became a non profit org in 2009.  When full we care for 47 horses and 200 smaller animals on 46 acres.  Right now its been slower so weve been rebuilding pens while they are empty.  Jan 1st  the big bomb hit, we lost our water source.  Out here there is no public water, everyone has a well.  Many of the rescues friends stepped up to help but its bigger than all of us.  Bottom line is we needed our own well.   We needed a miracle asap. 
On Jan 15th 2016 the miracle took form in Lauren Vargas of ABC News 15 when they literally came to the Rescue!  They filmed some small clips and aired them the same evening, helped set up this gofundme acct and the ABC viewers donated most of the money you see in just 2 days!!!  One woman, Kathleen, bless her heart donated $14,000!!!  We now have water and are praying that soon we will have plumbing all over the Rescue for easy access.  We have lots of plans and we hope to begin planting lots and lots of trees, lots of shade for all the animals!
I've commited to doing the rescue for the rest of my life, we need to save these animals so they can help save all the special needs kids that visit too.  Can you help us.  We'll pray for everyone that can help, we'll even start naming horses after everyone, whatever it takes to save the rescue.  Maybe you'd like a memorial for a family member that passed away, we can name one of our trees here at the rescue after them.  We really need this help, please please help us by spreading the word... and God Bless you all.

We are still here and still saving animals! Its very frustrating sometimes, because we have the room for more animals, but not he funds to care for and feed them. We have had to pass up saving large groups of horses and other livestock because we couldn't find the sponsors to help. But everything happens for a reason right, that's what they say, and life teaches us that its very true. But it breaks the heart seeing animals destroyed because no one will step up to help. And we have the room, WE WANT TO STEP UP AND SAVE THESE ANIMALS but we can't do it without your help, bottom line its always about money, I hate money sometimes, but that's what buys the hay..... Please please please, lets save some lives together.

Hello ABC News 15 friends! Well by some miracle the Rescue is still going strong and saving as many animals as we can afford to. But I can foresee many problems around the corner as we touch into 2018. We lost a few of our major sponsors last year, but we are blessed they helped out for so many years. We need some more monthly sponsors or really several one time sponsors, everything helps. We also need volunteers incase your coming up the 93 to Wikieup. Its really up to you how many of these beautiful animals we can save. If you need a donation slip for your taxes just let me know and God Bless you for even taking the time to read this.

Well its almost April again and its getting hot, imagine that in Arizona! It seems we haven't reached our goal but its ongoing. I Thank God for the fans of ABC News 15 every time we fire up our well for water. I don't even know how we managed before with hauling all our water with so many animals to care for. 14 years we have been here and with your help I hope we can save these animals another 14 years. Any size donation will help us continue in this promise. May The Lord Bless You for any help you can send our way.

Well a year ago, it seems like just yesterday, ABC News 15 helped us raise the money to drill our very own well. An incredible blessing! But our work continues, we still haven't reached our goal and now were getting ready to tear down the rescue, a section at a time, and rebuild it. The peach trees we planted last year in honor of several people that donated $1000 or more are doing well. And we will keep planting fruit trees in the names of others now that we have the water to feed them. God Bless You All for helping us get this far.
