The SAINTS AMAZING RAISE March pub night fundraising initiative is off to a slow start.
Here are the current standings and totals (please note that any pledges dropped off at SAINTS this weekend are not included)
Barn total $75
MP room total $220
Main house total $0
We need your help! Blog readers and saints supporters can donate to their favorite animal area and I will be telling you why to support each area over the next week.
Today I will tell you why you should pledge to the BARN TEAM:
It costs $2500 a month for the barn just for the hay, shavings and feed for everyone. The Farm Animal Program (aka Barn) is one of our most educational. Visitors are given the rare opportunity to meet up close and personal large and small farm animals who are bred, bought, sold, and slaughtered by the millions in the most inhumane manner, across our country each year. People have the opportunity to learn about some of the issues, and to possibly go away considering some of the possible solutions that could one day affect positive change in more humane standards and treatment in all farm animals lives. The barn volunteers bring their hard work and muscle–mucking out stalls and moping floors in the rain, snow, and heat every weekend and holidays. But they also bring their hearts. They love the animals in the barn and do everything they can to make the animals feel happy and healthy. Mo sings to wilbur the pot belly pig because it makes him happy, which is evident when his little tail starts wagging. KO brings the ducks and chickens special treats such as corn and lettuce.
The barn yard is home to 6 chickens/roosters, 4 farm pigs, 3 cows, 3 horses, 3 goats, 3 sheep, 3 ducks, 1 donkey, 1 llama, and 1 pot belly pig. In the barn yard resides some of our most famous SAINTS such as Ellie the pink princess, Brad Pitt (the pig rescued from the Pitt River), Wilbur and Lotti (2 baby pigs seized from cruel and inhumane conditions by the West Vancouver SPCA), Percy the cowlicker, Ziggy the mini donkey, and Gideon the white knight. At SAINTS these animals have found a home and family.
You can make a pledge through Pay Pal (just note that it is for team barn) or make a donation by dropping it off to SAINTS or mailing a cheque to Sheila Kullar (just email firstname.lastname@example.org for an address). Only donations of $25.00 or more will receive a tax receipt.
Thank you for supporting SAINTS rescue.
