Due to the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of the Refuge animals and their caregivers. We will have to postpone all visits and events until further notice (please DO NOT show up unannounced)
During this time we will still answer emergency calls for animals in distress ONLY.
Meanwhile, due to the fact that the animals consume over 3000 kg of feed and 24,000 lb of hay weekly, we have to hope that our feed stores can continue to supply us with what we need as we cannot store that large amount. We also hope that the hay dealers will continue to find hay, which in itself is already impossible to find due to the environmental effects of climate change and their inability to grow enough in our area.
Sadly, due to the pandemic donations have increasingly dwindled to nothing. Please consider GIVING a gift to the animals from afar by making a donation to help get them through these trying times.
We empathize with all the families that have been touched by the virus and encourage everyone to take precautions to stay safe and hope we will get through this as a global community.
