Animal Place has an exciting opportunity right now — to move from their over-grazed, water scarce 60-acre sanctuary in Vacaville to 590 acres of rolling pastures in the California foothills of Grass Valley.
Room to grow means more rescues, more outreach, more education. The new location also offers better weather and very importantly, water. Mudslides in winter, searing temperatures in summer make life difficult for the animals at the current site. Grass Valley is 10 degrees cooler year-round. With one well dry, Animal Place’s water situation is tenuous, at best. In Grass Valley, pastures are irrigated year-round, ensuring a constant supply of water for the rescued animals.
How much will this cost and how can we help?
This $2.7 million dream is not possible without help from their friends and supporters like you and me. Animal Place has already made an offer on the property and they have only a short time to raise as big a down payment as possible to secure a reasonable mortgage.
Donations of any size are welcome. Animal Place is a non-profit 501(c)(3) sanctuary and education center, so your deductions may be tax-deductible as allowed by law. For more information about the move, please click HERE .
We want to do more than hope Animal Place raises their necessary funds. We want to HELP them raise the necessary funds.
