Every dollar of your donation goes directly to building the sanctuary!

As many of you know, we have purchased a beautiful piece of property in North Carolina and have taken on the huge undertaking of turning it into a dream sanctuary for our animals and our supporters. We've got a long way to go! One of our supporters has offered to match every dollar of the first $6,000 3:1. If we raise $6K this generous benefactor, who has chosen to remain anonymous, will match it up to $18,000 - getting us to $24,000 - over 10% of our goal.

We have given a breakdown of expenses below, some of these costs are exact and some are estimated. Each fund is set up for the expenses associated, the general fund will cover the combined expenses listed at the bottom. We are also doing a lot of the work ourselves to save on costs when we can!
