-- Wrangler, an elderly gentleman that came to the sanctuary a couple years ago because his elderly mom could no longer care for him, wants to remind everyone that tomorrow (November 29) is "giving Tuesday".
Our mission at Gemini Farm Sanctuary is to help animals, both domestic and wild, and the people that care for them. We hope to do that with several programs being developed by our newly formed Board of Directors, but we desperately need your help. Our new non-profit status has allowed us to dream big but those dreams are not possible without the help of like-minded people.
In the next couple of weeks, we hope to make it much easier to donate money to the sanctuary. But right now you can help feed the animals here by going to Gemini Farm's Chew Wish List and checking our short but growing, wish list If you would like to send a monetary donation please contact us privately.
If you believe in our mission...to help the animal victims of a throwaway society and to improve the wild areas of the sanctuary, which in turn improves the lives of the wild creatures that walk that land....please consider a donation. The sanctuary has been in existence, quietly, since 1986. It is time our meow becomes a lion's roar on our path to improving the lives of animals and the people that love them.
We have all heard the saying "It takes a village." It's true!! We have big dreams and many pieces of the puzzle. It takes everyone to fill in the missing pieces of that puzzle to create a beautiful picture and make the dream a reality.
If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. ~St. Francis of Assisi
“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind."
What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the Sunset. ~Crowfoot
With gratitude to all the people that made this possible, and joy at the potential to finally be able to expand the efforts of the farm, I am thrilled to announce that Gemini Farm Sanctuary is officially a recognized 501c3 nonprofit.
Becoming a nonprofit is the next step in making our dreams come true. We plan to continue the S.A.F.E.R. Cats On The Border Project with our amazing partnership with Paws & Claws Society, Inc. Their generosity, knowledge, and guidance are the most important reason that we have been able to provide a Trap, Neuter, Return program for our area.
As some may have noticed, there are educational articles on the FB page from time to time and we hope to expand our education program
We are making progress in a new food bank program with more info on this coming soon…. we hope. The food bank plans currently are for animals however we have garden space available for a gardener needing a garden and who wants to share the fruits of the garden with others.
Our adoption program is limited but we work with our cat colonies to help them find homes for kitties in their care. Our farm cat colony is a big part of our mission. The cats and kittens that come here are those that have no other options. The farm is the last hope for so many of them. We hope to expand on this as time goes by.
The farm animal sanctuary program is small currently, only because of a lack of volunteers. There is hope for further expansion.
We are dedicated to helping all animals and because of that, we are working hard to re-wild the farm. The land not used for domestic animals will be improved to provide ideal habitat for native animals and plants.
Gemini Farm Sanctuary is an expression of my love of animals and in memory of my husband Frank who managed to do a great job hiding his love of all creatures. Only me saw him calming a frightened pony, going off to the woods to hunt…with a camera, bring suffering lambs home that he found in a parking lot with a frantic owner, or stopping to rescue a kitten from a ditch. He worked hard to hide his sensitive side and was often successful. Frank and I love this farm, the land and the animals, and my dream is to make sure the farm goes forward, with love and compassion for all, long after I have gone to be with Frank. If you think you would like to help, make this dream a reality please contact me
