At Farmhouse Animal & Nature Sanctuary our mission is to care for, love and support the exotic and farm animals that live at the sanctuary, to the best of our ability, for the remainder of their lives and to educate the public on animal care and nature. We have several projects that are in the works on the farm that will directly benefit the animals by creating safe spaces for them free from predators. We are also in the process of becoming a 501(c)3 non profit organization and are awaiting our determination letter. Keep in mind if the determination letter does not come through your purchase donation may not be tax deductible.
One such project we are currently working on is our Aviary renovation. We have an existing two story aviary that is in need of repairs and renovations. The goal is to allow free flight time for the birds that live in smaller cages within the aviary and make the structure predator resistant to keep the birds, chickens & fish safe as well as making it efficient for the volunteers to keep the area clean. We will be adding hardware cloth over the entire top 2/3rds of the building and roof atop of the existing chain link to help keep predators out as well as repair and replace damaged wood planks around the bottom 3’ of the enclosure. Inside the aviary we need to add drainage and build up the floor to help alleviate standing water when it rains, repair a sink in the hand washing station and add a secondary safety gate/entrance as well as replace the inline pump on the pond. We will be adding an area of sod and edible plants too.
