PFS, second year reflection

cropped-img_7575.jpg

What a year 2015 has been! Together with your help, we’ve rescued six goats and close to two dozen chickens this past year, providing them with a forever home free from exploitation. We have tabled at Richmond Vegfest, DC Vegfest and the National Animal Rights Conference to share the mission of the sanctuary. We’ve implemented monthly public volunteer days, giving another way the public can be involved and get to know the residents. Our first catered private event, a bachelorette party took place this year at the sanctuary. We added a Twitter and Instagram account to our online presence. Thank you for supporting Peaceful Fields Sanctuary throughout the year! Your gifts have provided hay, straw, feed, medical care, a wheelchair for Beauty, amputation surgery for Toby, surgery for Silver and much more. We are blessed by the many supporters who have volunteered, donated items or provided rescue transport. Sixty percent of our 2015 operating budget came from you, compassionate supporters! We are grateful to WHAG and The Winchester Star among others who shared the stories of several residents so people can connect and empathize with their journey. It sure has been exciting, full of growth this year and we hope everyone enjoyed coming along for the ride.  2016 will bring more so join with us on the journey to see what is in store! If you are considering year end giving, we are humbled to be on your list. From all the residents at Peaceful Fields Sanctuary, we hope you are blessed in 2016!

Beauty looks forward to seeing you!

Winter is here and there is so much to do to maintain a warm and comfortable environment for the animals! Please come out and help us keep them happy and cozy as winter sets in. As ususal, pants and closed toe shoes are mandatory. Please be prepared for being outside in the country, with long sleeves and appropriate clothing for the weather. Work gloves and hot beverages will be provided and we ask that any snacks you bring (some volunteers enjoy bringing food for themselves or a potluck ) be vegan out of respect for the animals. You also can bring fresh produce for the animals if you like. Please contact us for the address and any questions. We look forward to seeing you! RSVP via email or Facebook.

Sponsorships Make Great Gifts!

The Holiday Season is upon us! If you have any animal lovers on your holiday shopping list, why not sponsor a rescued animal in their honor? We would be happy to sent them a color photo of the sponsored animal and tell a little about them; how they were rescued and what kind of life they have now. We have several sponsorship packages available and one to fit any budget!

Chicken sponsorships are $50, Goat sponsorships are $120, Brownie the donkey needs a $300 sponsor and Elvis the horse needs a $310 sponsor. These funds will go directly to feed and medical care. Winter is fast approaching so the cost of care practically doubles. Once you’ve made your donation, please email us to let us know the name and address of the gift sponsorship recipient along with which animal you’d like to sponsor on their behalf. Also let us know which holiday (if any) you are giving a gift to celebrate so we can personalize the card containing the photo.

Happy Holidays from everyone at Peaceful Fields Sanctuary!
