Our New Year Wish For You

There is a beautiful sunrise here at SASHA Farm today.  It is a cool, crisp morning and the humans have not left the warmth of their barn yet.  I can see them through the holes in their barn, standing with their herd, drinking from a trough small enough to hold with their hooves.  They look through those holes often.  I think humans like to see the light and beauty that shine in.  I do not need holes in my barn to see light and beauty.  I feel light and beauty; that feeling surrounds me.  The light and beauty in my life are my family, my friends, my caretakers, and my home.  I have lived here since I was a calf.  I grew big and strong here.  I grew my horns here.  I do not know fear or pain here.  I only know peace, love, kindness, and compassion.  This is my home.  This is SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary.

My wish for humans in the new year is that you become more like us animal residents of SASHA Farm.  Experience the calm that being surrounded by light and beauty gives to you.  Realize that animal life, human and non-human, is precious.  Feel the peace and love that we feel.  Share that peace and love with all animal life.  Rejoice daily.   

Your continued support and generosity have allowed the entire SASHA Farm herd, over 250 of us, to feel love, kindness, compassion, and peace every day of the year.  Thank you is all we have to offer so please acceptance our thanks and know that you and your support are meaningful to us. 

With our sincerest gratitude,

Tod

Hay Drive for SASHA Farm Animal Residents

Winter is upon us and we NEED HAY! This year SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary went above and beyond for not one, not two, but ELEVEN cows in need. With the addition of these beautiful souls (revered as reborn human beings in Buddhist cultures) that brings our total number of rescued cows to 34! While we never know how many animals will need our help each year, this year was a big one.

Did you know one cow eats up to 27 lbs of hay per day? That’s over 800 lbs a month! – For one cow!

With the price of hay this year higher than usual, and the addition of all our new residents, we could really use your help in covering hay costs for winter. Your contribution to our hay drive will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support, and for helping all the SASHA residents to have a great holiday season.

Please click HERE to go to the Facebook fundraiser page and make your donation by clicking the Donate button. Or if you prefer, you can mail a check to SASHA Farm, PO Box 222, Manchester MI 48158, and note that it is for the HAY DRIVE.

If you are not familiar with SASHA Farm, here is our mission statement: The mission of SASHA Farm is to provide a safe and secure environment, lifetime care and medical treatment for unwanted, neglected, misused and abused farmed animals, as well as to foster a better understanding of these animals through education.

Thanksgiving For Animals

A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out last Sunday, November 26th for our Thanksgiving for Animals event! It was a great success, and we hope everyone who attended enjoyed themselves. Thank you for supporting SASHA Farm’s work, and standing up for animals!

If you weren’t able to attend, you can still make a donation in honor of this event through PayPal.

And The Winner Is . . .

. . The SASHA Farm Turkeys!

Thank you to everyone who sponsored one of our turkeys for Thanksgiving.  It is truly heartwarming to see how many people care and want to contribute to their well-being.  A special thanks to our drawing winner, Stephanie Church, who donated her winnings to the sanctuary.

This season we are truly thankful for all our generous friends who help keep SASHA going.  You give us so much hope for the future.

Have a very happy and compassionate Thanksgiving.

All Because of You!

SASHA Farms annual benefit and auction is our largest fundraiser each year. The funds raised at this event allow us to continue providing food, shelter, and medical care to animals who rarely received these necessities until they became SASHA Farm residents.

Each year, our banquet attendees and those who donate to the auction really make this fundraiser a success for the SASHA animal residents, and this year’s October 14th benefit was no exception.  In addition, on October 28, 2017, we celebrated 16 years of rescuing animals and providing animal welfare education as a nonprofit.  A big “THANK YOU!” goes to ALL who support SASHA Farm and its residents. We couldn’t do this without YOU!

Please help us thank our 2017 auction donors by recognizing their contributions, and help support them with your patronage.
