Please help us to raise $15k for a 36' x 40' pole barn to house rescue farm animals who have received some of the worst forms of abuse and neglect at our licensed sanctuary and charitable non-profit.

Cottontail Cottage Animal Sanctuary (CCAS,) is located in Cherryfield, Maine on a beautiful 50-acre farm. While working closely with Maine State Animal Welfare, our mission is to provide compassion, respect, dignity and love to rescued farm and companion animals and to give them a place to call home. Cottontail Cottage is a vegan-operated 501(c)3, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a forever home to animals who have experienced severe abuse or neglect. We are committed to the healing, rehabilitation, and security of every animal in our care, where they can live out their lives with the love and respect that each of them deserve.

We are so excited about the new barn and are looking for donors to help spearhead this project. Every donation counts - big or small - and is so greatly appreciated. With your help, we can give animals a place to live and be loved for the rest of their lives. Together, we can let them know what it is to be fed, cared for - and most importantly, of all - loved. We have a beautiful spot picked out for the new barn. It will be in the middle of a field surrounded by old pine and apple trees. We have watched flocks of wild turkeys land there, and seen how the ground is first touched by the morning sun. A gentle breeze blows through the upswept branches of a nearby spruce grove and in the background, a little creek garbles past. Further on, are more pockets of fields and trails that wind throughout the 50-acres property beckoning visitors onwards. It is an old wood and easy to believe that anything could happen here - most especially, giving animals a second chance. Looking down on top of it all - from a little knoll ( as though it were indeed a kingdom) - is the two hundred year old house, affectionately known as "The Rookery" (meaning: nesting place,) where the caregivers live. Imagine yourself here. Imagine all the lives you could help save with the addition of a new barn.

To create a place where animals have room to heal and play, enjoying a life filled with joy, love and kindness. Collaborating with others to build a better world where animals’ lives are valued on their own merit and they are likewise treated with compassion and dignity.

PLEASE HELP US RAISE $15K TO PUT UP A NEW POLE BARN. Please help us save these precious lives and give them sanctuary and a forever home. Help us create a beautiful place where visitors can come and learn how to be the very best advocates for animals. Together, we can do anything.

(And anyway, they need you  - and so do we!)
