Urgently Needing a New location

Tax deductible

Dear Friends,

 Today we were informed that we will be evicted…We will have to find a location to move our sanctuary with our ( Cats and Dogs), storage container, outdoor kennels and our cat Isolation building.
 The previous owners real estate agent originally told us that the new owner said he would let us stay.  Today another realtor  of the new landlord contacted me and told us that we would be evicted.  
  He said they would give us a reasonable amount of time not really giving anything conclusive … and mumbled something about 6 months. 
If anyone knows someone that owns anywhere from a 1/3 of an acre or more and is not using it please ask them if AFC can have it or possibly purchase it reasonably. Also a home in a commercial area could work for us.
Please everyone we desperately need your help!!!
In our 31 years we have provided a lot of aid to the greater San Joaquin/Lodi area.  We have rehomed upwards to 20,000 cats and dogs and provided many with major medical care/surgery in addition to spays and neuters and vaccinations.
              We are Animal Friends Connect Humane Society, located in Lodi, CA since 1990. We are strictly a no-kill non-profit organization and we run by donations only. We do not get any sort of city, state, or county funding or anything in that matter. Since we run by donations and are non-profit, our resources are limited, we do all that we can do to help our sanctuary animals and the public who are in need of pet food, spaying or neutering their dogs or cats and much more. Our animals are our main priority, when they come in, whether they are owner surrender, found on the street, found inside a taped box, found sitting by our garbage cans, tied to our fence or thrown out a window on our property, we do everything and we mean EVERYTHING we can to get that animal to a healthy state. We have had horrible malnourished, broken bones, eye sockets falling out, cigarette burns and our most recent one, a bullet inside a dog's leg from being shot which needed amputation. With all that being said we are still able to find wonderful homes where LOVE, warmth and happiness is felt for both our dogs and cats and they'll never be beat, shot at, burned and all the horrible things people do to these innocent animals.  All our animals here at Animal Friends Connection stay with us until they get adopted into their furever home and live in our free roaming sanctuary like a family pet.  Please help Animal Friends find a new location and donate to us so that we can purchase a forever place to move to and continue to help them.

 Our Mission is to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of animals

through public education and pet adoptions.
