Farm Animal Rehabilitation

$9,578 of $26,000 goal

Raised by 114 people in 9 months
East Maui Animal Refuge is a nonprofit that has been operating for more than 30 years as a sanctuary for injured and orphaned animals, including the most vulnerable and under-represented of all animals – farm animals. We rescue injured, abused and orphaned farm animals. 

We are raising funds to build a rehabilitation barn for injured farm animals. It will accelerate the healing process and improve their comfort and well being. It will allow our caretakers to comfortably stay with the recovering animals 24 hours a day -- we already do that now, in a small and noisy space.

The new barn will provide a safe, comfortable and quiet environment that is critical to their recovery. It will provide a calm and accessible place for onsite veterinary checkups and procedures. It will free up current facilities to provide more room for our entire animal population. 

We have already spent many months clearing and preparing the location, including parking for the vehicles used for rescuing and transporting the animals.

Now we are raising money to purchase the materials and pay for the labor. We have a detailed materials list and we are working with architects to finalize the plans and permits. Our team is standing by to begin as soon as possible!

Your contribution will directly impact the health, comfort and recovery of animals who have a chance at an entirely new life.
  A life where they are nurtured and cared for, free to run and play and discover love for the first time in their lives...and for the rest of their lives.

We are profoundly grateful and joyful for any contribution you can make. All of our animals thank you for giving them a better life.

Mahalo from East Maui Animal Refuge! Thank you to everyone who has donated to the rehabilitation barn project to build a place where large animal rescues, like deer, goats and sheep can relax and recuperate in comfort. Recent rescues include an adorable baby lamb who joins Sylvan to say hello to you all in our latest video. East Maui Animal Refuge is all-volunteer run and entirely donation funded. That means YOU are the ones rescuing these beautiful creatures. Thank you for your generosity and your caring.
