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 49240, 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.

A Very Special Day at SASHA Farm!

Thank you to all who came to SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary on Sunday, October 22 to spend time with the Jersey 5 and all the other residents. First, we met the babies in the small pasture area outside their living quarters, and all our visitors had a delightful time cuddling the sweet babies. But when we opened the gate and they ran free in the larger pasture adjoining FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME IN THEIR LIVES, it was a wondrous sight to behold – and a very special day for all who witnessed the Jersey 5 running and jumping with joy! Check out this movie on our Facebook page by clicking HERE.

We appreciate your support, and the money raised will go toward helping the Jersey 5 receive ongoing medical care. If you have pictures and videos of the event that you would like to share with us and all our supporters, please email them to socialmedia@sashafarm.org. For larger files, please send an email to socialmedia@sashafarm.org and we will be happy to provide alternate information.

Cat Lovers Needed!

IMG_7441SASHA Farm would love to have your help caring for 12 sweet cats in our cat barn.  Shifts are once a week for a minimum of 2 hours, but we would love to have you stay longer!  Our volunteers clean, wash floors, do laundry, scoop litter, and feed the cat residents.

Purrs and snuggles are complimentary!

Please email Darcy at darcyrocks@yahoo.com or Lynn at lynxdonell@aol.com for more information.

*Volunteers must be 18 years of age.*

** As much as we would love to take more cats, our cat barn is full so we are unable to accept cats for rescue at this time. **
