As most of you know, we have been working on a case that hits way too close to home. After months of offering help to a fellow sanctuary, we were finally able to legally go onto the property to see what was needed. A few years ago, we purchased a property with another sanctuary. It was a beautiful and productive collaboration at the time. Sadly, the other sanctuary lost its way within the last year due to a lack of finances and mental health-related issues.
Because they are closing their doors, as they should, Rancho Relaxo now has to pick up the pieces and take on over $7,000 in property costs per month. Today, we are asking all of our supporters to please donate and help us move forward with this transition smoothly. There is an outstanding loan for $42,000 that paid for fencing on the property we are taking over. Paying this off will knock $2,000 per month off in expenses.
Our mission is so important to us. We will never fail the animals as some others have. We will push forward, stronger than ever. But we need you. This has been a trying and emotional time for our community. Thank you all so much for your love and support.
