Sanctuary Updates and Quarterly Hay Drive

Visit from Everyday Blessings

Last weekend we were graced with a visit from a wonderful group of children from Everyday Blessings. They were a hit with all the animals and brought a lot of smiles to the farm.

Christening the Rabbit Refuge

While here the children helped us break in the new Rabbit Refuge. It was everything we had hoped for. The kids had plenty of room to interact with rabbits and the rabbits had room to give them a good chase 🙂

Rabbit Refuge

Thank You, Designing Daughters

We knew we needed a better space for the bunnies and we wanted an area where they could dig (without escaping) and live more natural lives. We also wanted a space where people could interact with the rabbits. Designing Daughters answered our prayers with a grant to build the Rabbit Refuge. The visit from Everyday Blessings was a perfect example of their generosity in action. It not only affected the general well-being of our rabbits but also provided an interactive learning opportunity for a great group of kids. Thank you, Designing Daughters.

Thank You, Community Foundation

We would also like to thank the Community Foundation of Sarasota for a generous grant to build a new, multi-purpose goat enclosure. We have several goats on a waiting list and this new habitat will provide a safe haven for them as well an area for special needs goats (like our darling Pablito!). We are just starting construction and will post updates along the way.

Pablito Update

Blind Baby GoatSpeaking of Pablito, our little farm favorite is progressing nicely. He has started eating hay and grain and is starting to interact with the adult goats through the fence. He has also developed a strange but touching friendship with a pigeon. The pigeon rests with him in his goat hut and sleeps with him at night. They are an odd pair, but everyone needs a friend.

It takes a lot of hay to grow this big!

Looking for Help with Hay

It’s that time again when we ask you to dig deep and help the animals at Florida Rescue Farm have fresh hay for the next 3 months. We are trying to raise $500 for a trailer of hay which provides feed and bedding for these wonderful animals. This has been a very dry season and the grass is not as plentiful as it usually is, so it is particularly critical to have enough hay to supplement the diets of all the critters. Any gift helps us to reach our goal. Please click here to donate now.
