The Humane Society estimates that between six to eight million animals are cared for in shelters annually, and at least three to four million of these unfortunate animals are euthanized. Too many of these innocent creatures are deemed unsuitable for adoption. Most of the blame can be laid on the neglect and/or abuse that each has suffered.
How many of these animals have been living in fear, in pain, in rejection, and in betrayal? They suffer and no one sees, they cry but no one hears, they hang on in agony, and they die in loneliness and rejection. They cannot stop us to tell of their pain, their anguish. Each of these animals has a story to tell if we would only listen.
Out to Pasture Farm and Rescue wholeheartedly believes that each and every one of us can help; each of us can do something. Together we can and will make a difference and we can do it one animal at a time.
The farm and rescue is family run. It has nonprofit status as an animal rescue and rehabilitation organization that cares and heals needy animals. It is a goal of the rescue to provide these elderly, abused, terminally ill or physically challenged a home in which to live out their days and to give them the physical and emotional support each deserves.
It is a noble, remarkable cause. Out to Pasture manages to give the animals life to live instead of a lonely premature end.
As might be expected, Out to Pasture Farm & Rescue, Inc., frequently has overwhelming costs for the special needs animals in their permanent care. Their continued success is tied directly to the generosity of donors and volunteers. One hundred percent of all donations and contributions are used to provide for the animals and their individual needs. Every dollar amount, large or small, is accepted with deepest gratitude and acknowledged and put to good use.
