Hi guys!!!!! I would love to thank all who came out to help today from all walks with of life from a young mother with her four young babies to police officers. Between you and the crew we were able to safely move all of the animals to settlers pond. We we are going to be very busy in the next few days getting everything organized and all comfy. We are going to be holding the animals except for those who want to foster. Our hopes are to return the animals to Riegel farms once they have the funds to reopen. We will of course need funds to help care and fees the animals. The rabbits are in diar need of nails and teeth trimming. Horses need to be trimmed and spring shots and wormers. Chicken needs the beeks trimmed and nails pigs nails and tusks. Goats neutered. All this cost s. Were here in situations like this when there is no one else to help. We do this in good faith because were depending on all of you to help us continue to help you! Please please help is care for these animals and hopefully pay it forward what we Dont use on there animals to Riegel farm. Again thank you all so much and a huge thank you to my crew who were out in this weather and some even sick! God bless you all and I am humbled by your kindness to help us help these animals

After seeing the newscast and the UP residents that are saddened by the closure of Regal Farms I hope these funds will help return them to their farm and the community that are feeling the loss. I would hope that instead of the city over seeing Regal Farms in the future that the community and or Governors State will be able to find a solution . So sad for the community to loose Regal Farms..... Gwendolyn Ishia Brown so sorry that you and your community are going through all this.

No one is talking down about University Park, but when I read on a forum page that a person gave to the farm and the staff put it in their pockets I will say that. I was born and raised there, my Dad is a retired cop from there for 32 years.
