Farm Sanctuary Launches Campaign to Build a Small Animal Hospital

Farm Sanctuary has rescued and rehabilitated thousands of abused and neglected farm animals at their two sanctuaries. Now, they have asked supporters to help them build a hospital for small animals.

In an email sent out today, Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder Gene Baur said “For years, our New York Shelter has been caring for newborn and small animals in the property’s original farmhouse, built in the 1880s. Now, we are raising the bar for medical care in our Watkins Glen sanctuary by building a new facility designed to meet the unique needs of our littlest rescued farm animals…We need to complete basic construction before the cold weather sets in, but we must raise $190,000 before September 30 to meet that goal and be ‘closed in’ by winter.”

The hospital will allow more rescued animals to have veterinary care without leaving the farm. “The Small Animal Hospital will be designed with animal care in mind. Animals who need IVs, oxygen therapy, catheters, minor surgeries, or other critical care can be treated on-site, rather than taken to area veterinary hospitals. Veterinarians will also be able to make house calls to perform certain procedures on-site in the new facilities. This will prevent many of our animals from having to face the stress of transport at an already painful and frightening time…the state-of-the-art facility will allow Farm Sanctuary to take a step forward in our ability to educate students and veterinarians about farm animal care and serve as a model for other shelters across the nation.”

Baur asks that supporters help Farm Sanctuary achieve their goal of $190,000 by making a donation and becoming a member. If you get your membership by the end of this month, your impact will be even greater – in fact, twice as great! “To encourage you to join by September 30, two fellow supporters have generously agreed to match your contribution dollar-for-dollar — up to $100,000.”
