Project at a Glance Created : 4 months ago
I started the “Animal Friends” project 2 years ago. I was working as a vet in my local community and seeing an increasing number of animals that either had not be cared for properly or were simply abandoned. I became increasingly depressed with the numbers I was having to “put down” as there was simply no alternative in the local area? Thats when I had my Eureka moment and decided to do something about it!
On our small farm we predominantly provide care and veterinarian treatment for farm animals (as we are in a rural location) but we also take in many pets including dogs, cats and even a parrot. We rely heavily on donations to help pay the bills and regularly run little fund raising campaigns. We also rely on some great volunteers for the day to day running of our operation but the time people can give varies a lot.
The work is very rewarding and there isn’t a day that goes by where I feel unsatisfied. We could just do with a little more “Hands On” help from people who feel as passionately as I do.
