Donate Now! "The animals will love it if you do"

The gimme shelter project re-homes and rehabilitates unwanted and at risk farm and domestic animals. For the past seven years we added to our family of goats, pigs, sheep, donkeys, chickens, dogs, cats and turkeys.

Your tax deductible donation makes a significant impact on our ability to sustain and grow the rescue project.  

In 2018, we added 7 cats, 10 chickens and 2 roosters to the farm family.  We also supported the placement of 2 pigs, 3 roosters and  2 donkeys.  All were in distress but now  have happy homes, thanks to  your help.  Hay, straw, feed, medicine, veterinary care and barn & fence maintenance costs add up quickly.  The donors make a big difference in our capacity to ensure no animal is turned away. 

Finance & Operations Overview
This is truly a small non-profit and more than 50% is directly funded by me.  This ensures that every penny you donate goes directly to care and feeding. There is no overhead!  I do all the daily work.  My total annual cost are about $14,000, give or take year over year. It roughly breaks down like this: 

Maintain the
Barn& Fences    $ 2500                         
Feed:                       $ 5,000
Straw:                     $ 1,600
Hay:                         $ 1,600
Shots/Meds        $    900
Vet:                          $ 2,100
Total:                       $13,700
