Our growing animal sanctuary

Raised by 32 people in 12 days
It all started a few years ago on a small piece of land here in South Florida with a rescue Pitbull and two rescued pigs. I saw terrible things all around me and like most vegans and animal activists I wanted to do something about it.......So I did! From there we grew to rescue goats, multiple dogs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, turkeys & 5 more pigs. It got to the point where we couldn’t take in any more animals because we wanted to ensure the rescues that live here at @LilyAndFriendsRescue have the best quality of life. After what some of them have been through it’s incredibly important to us that the rest of their lives be the best of their lives.

With that said more animals need our help and we answered the call. Together we did it! We were able to get a 5 acre property to expand the sanctuary so we can do so much more. I literally put everything I have into this and without your generous donations/support it wouldn’t be possible.

Now that we are here the real work begins. Our first rescue on the new property is a sweet mule named Leroy. Although the property is not fully ready we are making it work not only for him but also for our second rescue arrival here, a sweet little pig named Petunia.

Here is the game plan moving forward and this is where you come in! My first priority is getting the stable built for Leroy not only for shelter but there are some veterinary visits coming soon and they want him to have a place to rest and recuperate so it is absolutely essential. Aside from that all of the fencing in his area including new gates need to be built/secured. After which the fencing neighboring him needs to be redone with gates as well as another shelter built for pigs & goats. This also requires appropriate fencing because goats are big-time jumpers. Once this area is complete because of the fencing/stall will not only be able to take in pigs and goats but also cows. If we have the wherewithal to rescue an animal and give him/her a forever home it’s going to happen!

As far as raising the money I have a written estimate from a contractor I trust who did all of the work for the other property. He gave me a full quote for not only a double stall but all of the necessary fencing, gates & housing to get the pig/code section up and running. The total quoted was 14,400. That quote includes all of the potential fencing needed for current and future rescues, the good thing is not all of the fencing needs to be replaced and can be easily repaired. On top of that I’m working with some amazing people in the animal activist community who going to help arrange volunteer days to help with the labor as well as donations for supplies. This can bring down the cost tremendously & because of this I believe it will take less than what was quoted therefore what will do with the rest of the money raised is use it for things like veterinary bills, feed, rescue transport and anything else needed to take in animals and make sure they are happy and healthy.

We are in this together so you should know where your money is going. As different projects are completed & billed I will be posting the invoices/receipts on my website in the sanctuary section at www.consciousmuscle.net/sanctuary. This way we will always know how much has been raised and how it’s being used. I think it’s so important for everyone to see how their contributions are helping the animals.

For those of you who have donated and will donate I am beyond grateful. Together we are making a real impact and saving lives! It’s amazing that as a vegan community we can build something so amazing and connect with each other from all over the world for one common good. Sending nothing but good vibes love and gratitude for every single one of you! Let’s do this!

I just wanted to send a big thank you to everyone out there who has donated up this point! We’ve raised over $1500 so far. Once we hit $2500 I’ll be posting the invoice for the stable itself which will be paid for directly through the sanctuaries account. After that it’s time to get fencing, housing and everything else ready for pigs, goats and cows!
We are in this together and I’m genuinely beyond grateful for every single one of you. Without all of you none of this would be possible, so quite literally we have co-created this sanctuary and I love every single one of you for it! We have accomplished so much already and we are not slowing down!❤️
