We are a 501c3 Nonprofit for abused, handicapped and senior dogs. We purchased a farm in 2014 to have a home for our rescues where they could live with us as a family on the first floor. The second floor is rented out on Airbnb. At the time we were in a position to fund the enterprise ourselves and intended to host farm weddings at a future date to fund the shelter. 4 months after purchase, while renovations were ongoing, we moved to the farm. Shortly thereafter, I became disabled. Almost one year to the date later my husband lost his job as a SVP and CFO during the purge from a company buyout. When we tried to start the farm wedding enterprise the county said we would need a variance and the neighbors all voted against it. The farm we purchased had been vacant for 3 years, and yes, we did have it inspected. The ongoing undisclosed problems discovered during renovation cost us thousands of unanticipated dollars. We have done everything possible to keep going. We rent the entire upstairs on Airbnb, we host a number of Experiences through Airbnb and all our Facebook pages were created solely to fund the shelter. We have a new website and a Google Business page. We are two seniors who do nothing but work here at the farm 12 and more hours a day. We are desperate for help. As my illness continues to worsen on a daily basis, I am anticipating to be gone relatively soon. I can not rest in peace until I know that my husband and the rescue are taken care of. Since my 66 birthday in August, I vlog and will continue to vlog as often as possible, until the end not only for the rescue but also to help others who are ill and cannot find a diagnosis or doctor who is familiar with what is happening to them. 

Our organization is looking for dedicated volunteers who can help us make a better future for handicapped, abused, and neglected throw-away dogs We need people who can do sewing, do carpentry, gardening, IT and more. If you want to do what you love and contribute your time, call us to schedule an appointment. We are listed on Volunteer Match and have posted 8 different opportunities you can volunteer your time for. We warmly welcome you in our shelter!
