Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary is a new 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Northern California started by a couple who teaches middle school. Driven by a desire to show compassion to those the world has forgotten, Blackberry Creek strives to provide refuge to rescued farm animals and through their stories bring trust, peace, healing and comfort to at-risk youth, veterans, the elderly, and people with special needs in the community.
In order to kick-start their programs, the sanctuary needs to build the infrastructure that will support all kinds of farm animals from chickens and goats to donkeys and cows! With the help of donors and volunteers they will be constructing predator-proof fencing, barns, and habitats, and obtaining a used truck and trailer so that they are able to transport and provide the best care to animals coming to live out their lives at the sanctuary.
Once the sanctuary has the base funding for those crucial items, it will be able to rescue more animals who need help (many have already been turned away since the sanctuary's founding, because it simply does not yet have the facilities to properly care for them).
