Thank you for all your generosity and support yesterday on Giving Tuesday! 

We are so grateful for you and your compassion for the animals. 

Yesterday we raised $15,646 towards the $25,000 goal to build a spay/neuter clinic here at the sanctuary. So if you missed the posts to donate yesterday there is still time. 

We are not going to give up on this dream for the animals. Kate and I are more determined than ever to make this happen. We want the pigs to have the best medical care possible and we want their spay/neuter surgeries to be stress free and easy on them. 

So many of you signed onto that dream yesterday with your donations and we are so grateful for you! 

If you’d like to make a donation towards this important project you can do so here, Venmo to Heartwood-Haven, or by visiting the link in our bio and going to our website. 💛💛
🎉$5,000 Match today for Giving Tuesday 🎉

This year your support and generosity has rescued 209 animals! 88 were intact pigs who needed to be spayed and neutered. 

Today, your gift has the ability to impact so many more animals by helping us build a spay/neuter clinic right here at the sanctuary. 

We have the building and team so your gift will be used to buy equipment such as an anesthesia machine, operating table, and monitoring equipment. 

Your gift will help pigs who have been left to die and when not in use by our pig friends will go on to support a low cost spay/neuter clinic for our local rural community. 

Please help us make this dream a reality and reach the $5000 match.

Your support isn’t just a donation; it’s an act of compassion that will echo through the lives of countless animals, altering their destinies and rewriting their stories. 

You can donate here, Venmo to Heartwood-Haven, or by clicking the link in our bio and visiting our website. 💛💛
