STILL ONLY $25 BUCKS LEFT TO RAISE ...And we will have fully covered her surgery and can officially book her date! 🐇💖 Let's make things FUN by doing a GIVEAWAY. If we raise the final $25 IN 25 HOURS....all donors will be entered to win! You could win this professional print of Thumper & both piggy stickers! Please see the info 👇👇 to find out why we need your support! (Link in profile to donate)
We have a goal of raising $350 (follow link in profile) to fully fund her spay and create a $100 emergency fund buffer "just in case". All donations exceeding the total amount needed for the spay surgery will go towards creating an "at-the-barn" "first aid arsenal" for all of our farm animals here at the sanctuary. If each one of our Instagram followers donated just $1 we could fully fund this potentially life-saving spay surgery for Thumper. Why is this spay so important? Because female rabbits, particularly those who are 3 years old or older, are at an incredibly high rate (60%) of getting cancer (uterine adenocarcinoma). And we are going to prevent that! Not only will your donation provide this important care for Thumper, but it will also allow us (and literally afford us) the opportunity to rescue more rabbits and other farm animals soon. Knowing we have a community who supports us through donations allows us to feel confident in taking-in more animals in need because we know you have backs if/when the time calls for it! No donation is too small. Should you prefer, please donate directly to Hamilton Animal Hospital, NY under the name Amanda Bennett and you can 100% guarantee that your full donation will go directly towards her spay surgery (you can find their phone number and address on the "spay estimate" photo in original post). Thank you so much for your support, Misfits!

Happy Tuesday! What do you think he is thinking about?

Heartbroken. That's what we are right now and we believe Lil'luke was too. Yesterday we lost another family member, Lil'Luke. We was running on his wheel, climbing on his swing, and playing around like the cute little goofball he was, and then just suddenly passed. He showed no signs besides clearly missing his trustest friend, Papa. They often would talk and try to play together. They were in separate habitats side-by-side (Papa preferred his own space) but you could tell they had a bond nonetheless. We believe it was the stress of a broken heart that caused him to cross over the rainbow bridge far sooner than we would have ever thought. We tried to help ease any stress he might experience by offering more toys, treats and cuddles ...but it just wasn't enough. Lil had the sweetest personality and we will deeply miss his cute cuddles and goofy playing around here! He was recused by Peta during an undercover operation of a breeding supplier used by Petco/PetSmart. Lil was exploited for breeding, but like Papa, he found a loving and safe home where his life was valued and he was able to live it on his terms. We hope he left this world believing humans are good, despite his original situation and treatment towards him. We love you, Lil'Luke. Forever a Misfit! 🐹💖😇
In memory of Lil'Luke and Papa, please concider donating to Thumper's spay surgery (follow link in profile). In honor of their memories, Thumper will never know a life where she is only valued by her sexual reproductive system.

Long legged beauty, who completely changed my view of farm pigs. I had no idea the depth of the large pigs personalities. I thought I’d share a little about her. ❤️Miss Piggy here is fiercely protective of me, gets a little jealous when I’m around the other animals and not giving her attention. ❤️She is full of grace for as big as her 500lb body will allow, she daintily goes down for belly rubs, and talks with you as she gets scratches. ❤️She back talks to my husband just like a teenage girl would do. ❤️Her favorite song is, “Everything is gonna be alright” and will sing along with me as I sing to her. ❤️She is very patient with her rescue brother Andy, who she shares the pen with, he’s quite crazy at times and she patiently puts him in check and teaches him manners. ❤️She is most gentle about taking her treats from you, although her jaw strength could crush a watermelon. ❤️Miss Piggy adores children and her eyes light up when they visit her.
These special souls deserve more than the horrific treatment they endure, to be raised in nursing cages with zero mobility, to be raised in factory farms with very little space and horrific treatment..They feel fear, jealousy, love, terror, impatience, joy just to name a few and all of Miss Piggy’s facial expressions will tell you so.
Please Follow me @farmoftagram if you like ! Thanks .
Ich werde immer wieder gefragt ob mein Tag mehr als 24 Stunden hat und wie ich das alles schaffe.
Naja.. Leider hat der Tag nur 24 Stunden. Aber man kann in der Zeit doch recht viel machen. Was dann bei uns allerdings auf der Strecke bleibt sind Sachen wie Stadtbummel, Kino, Kneipenabend, Fitnesscenter oder was man sonst so macht...
Ich habe das alles gemacht und festgestellt, dass ich das wirklich nicht brauche... (einmal im Jahr reicht mir völlig...Wobei Kino schon 10 Jahre her ist😅 Himmel wie die Zeit vergeht).
Die Landwirtschaft, der Foretbetrieb und die Jagd sind eben Dinge die einen ganz beanspruchen und es macht unglaublich viel Spaß ( meistens 😅😉). Man muss eben lieben was man tut....Ach ja und meinen Hauptjob als Pädagogin liebe ich ja auch...Genau wie die Arbeit als Autorin. Irgendwie geht das alles und man schafft dazwischen noch Haushalt und Garten.
Aber eins kann ich nach solchen 24 Stunden wirklich behaupten. ..Langeweile hatte ich nicht eine Minute davon😂😂😂😂
Funds needed to stay open! We are down to less than $30 now, have not paid salaries, or rent, and cannot feed the animals on this amount of money with no donations coming in.
We cannot keep doing this. The constant crisis is too much for all of us working to help these animals and the insecurity of the animals lives day to day without vet care and without funds for food is overwhelming. People want to hear happy stories, but we cannot even pay the bills and pay our staff and we are expected to have endless before and after shots, many animals sitting in cages, and sick and dying animals covering our floors that we’re saving. We aren't that type organization to exceed our limits for the sake of media and if that is what you need, I can recommend literally any other rescue in Vietnam. However, we are doing our best for the animals we have with the extremely limited resources we have and we need your help to be able to not quit this. The animals we have rescued continued to need care and while they were all in crises when we got them, they are all now happy and healthy and based on the current system for nonprofit funding, that isn't going to keep them alive because looking healthy does not get anyone donations that will last until their adoption.
Any system that relies on crisis to maintain itself is completely broken. The system of nonprofit fundraising for animal rescues is centered entirely around the donor feel-good experience and pushes rescues to take on far more animals than they have resources for while stretching the limits of energy of its staff. Having standards of welfare that are good for the animals and showing those as opposed to appeasing the people who want to see endless before/after shots on media and hoards of animals suffering in order to feel compelled to donate is detrimental to our ability to continue to stay open and to ever get back to doing the work we know we can do to help animals on a large scale. The only way we have ever gotten any money at all is by being completely broke. That is just sick. We need your help.
Please donate today:
It’s been a longgg day, friends 😅 This morning, @afelice16 and I were at Niagara Falls marveling at the power of nature, and tonight we’re back in Pennsylvania — with this little angel 💗💗💗 It’s 1:00 am and I can hardly think anymore, but I just wanted to say that I am absolutely in love with this boy and SO eager to share more pictures and videos from this whirlwind weekend soon. Here’s a little video of Paul (the bear) and I keeping the baby company as best we could on what had to be a confusing, long trip for him. He’s handled the situation like an absolute trooper, and it’s clear that he has the fight to win the uphill battle he’s facing 💪💪💪 This #SavedFromSlaughterSaturday goes out to this baby, who would have been “culled” because of his disability, but instead is getting an incredible second chance at Twist of Fate. (I’m sorry I didn’t have time to do a proper Saved From Slaughter Saturday this week, but I promise I’ll make it up!)
