Althea Bernstein Paws and Reflect Farm

Hello Everyone!

I want to thank you all for being amazing, caring souls and contributing to Althea's dreams of starting an animal rescue farm. She has officially named her farm "Timberdoodle Meadows" after the timberdoodle birds found in our area.

Althea has been networking with two farms here in Wisconsin. She's learning the ropes and making meaningful connections with people who will be helping her when she finds her own property. She is actively looking at farmettes to start her animal rescue on. This will take time. But in the meantime, she has fostered her first pig, named Paisely, who she just placed permanently on one of the farms. She has also fostered a group of baby ducks, all of which have been placed on a forever farm, except for one that she is still treating with physical therapy. Once the duck is better able to walk on his own, he'll be placed at the farm as well. She is also fostering a kitten that was found on the roadside next to where it's mom had been hit by a car. 

Althea is a dear, sweet girl who wants so much to do good in this world. I am so grateful to all who contributed to this fund which has lifted her spirits and gives her a hopeful place to rest her thoughts. 

I am going to close this campaign now with gratitude. Since it did not reach the goal amount for the campaign, and since she is still in the process of acquiring a farmette, I would like to share this link below if you would like a refund on your contribution. I want to make sure that nobody feels uncomfortable about their donation. I want everyone who has contributed to feel good about their gesture.

Again, I want to thank everyone for supporting not only animals, but Althea and her dream of helping them. When that day comes when she officially opens Timberdoodle Meadows, I will be there to help as a volunteer, as promised. 

All my best,
