Things are moving right along. Heat is the big problem right now and
hard for Darlynn to work and also to be sure her pigs have enough water
to keep them cooled down.
We have committed homes for about 33 of their pigs but because of the heat we have decide to wait for the weather to start cooling off. Plus the fact that the trailer has to be repaired before we can complete transport for those which have homes to go to.
One of the problems at Darlynn's Darlins Sanctuary is that that well is not working properly and they need a new one. Cost will be $1500.00 and a gentleman has come forward and said that if we get the well drilled, he will add faucets and timers at his cost. We have funds to cover the pump but not the $1500.00 for the well. She is trying to find a way to raise it.
Good news is that the pig we thought had a tumor, doesn't. So no surgery for her is needed. Bad news is that we have not yet found anyone to transport the 2 b
oars for surgery. If anyone can help, please contact us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
There has been a donation of 15 hog panels which we are in the process of getting picked up and delivered but now need someone to help get it up so the pigs can be properly separated. Again contact us if you can help.
We want to thank everyone who has donated so far. We have reached about $1500.00 for blood testing and transporting so we are about half way there. Please don't give up on us but keep the donations coming. Also keep sharing and seeking out homes. Would like to have at least 40 to deliver in September, but we can't do it alone. We need you. These pigs need you. I know it get tiring and boring hearing the same plea over and over again. But the lives of these pigs hang in the balance.
You can donate through www.paypal.com
to email@example.com and just mark it for DD rescue. Or you can mail a check to FAREC, 1822 Meister Hills Rd., Deer Lodge, TN 37726 and again please mark it for DD Rescue.
Working together, we can make all this happen. Just don't give up on us.
Last minute note: We have a well man going to check it out for $360.00 to see if she can get by without a new well but just with some minor repairs and maybe a new 75 gallon holding tank.CISSY PREPARING TO TRAVEL HOME
Cissy, the tree walker hound, has been through so much. But now she is well on her way. She has been spayed, has had rabie shot, 7 in one shots and treated for mange. Mange is really clearing up and her skin is looking so much better and hardly scratching at all now.
She is one very happy puppy who loves to play. She will run beside me and grab my dress and try and run with it. She will be traveling to her new home on or about August 13, 2011 in IN. We have transport as far as Terre Haute, IN but need one more leg of it filled to Valparaiso, IN. If you can help, please contact us. AJ NEEDS A HOME
AJ...25 years old, registered App. very gentle & spoiled, arthritis in
front knees, suitable for kids to ride but would not handle heavy weight,
currently grazing over 10 acres with ponds, shade and barn, very able to walk
around without any health problems but definitely in his retirement years. AJ is located in Kentucky. Contact us if you are interested in adopting him.DANCER NEEDS A HOME
Dancer is a Chestnut Roan Appaloosa. She needs a forever loving home. She has a small chip in her knee making it so she can't be rode but loves to just graze. She does not have a noticeable limp or anything and we have lead-lined her
with the grandchildren a time or two. She has been checked to be breeding
sound and was actually was used as an embryo transfer horse about four years
ago,however, the donor mare did not have any viable eggs so there was no pregnancy. My daughter absolutely loves this horse. We've had her since she was two months old, but,
unfortunately, with three kids in college at the time, I did not have
funds to have surgery done to remove the bone chip. We would just like
find a home for her where she can be a beloved pasture pet,
children's lead-line pony. Contact Mari for more info.
