 We moved to our DREAM property on Manitoulin Island in the fall of 2022!

 

We are currently working on utilizing over 200 ACRES of pasture and forest for our GLO residents to enjoy. This includes a HUGE BARN to keep everyone safe and warm all year long. One day we hope there is the potential to give even MORE rescued farm animals the amazing forever home they deserve.

Big Acreage = Big Work, We need your help!

Moving 30-plus animals across the province (onto an island, no less!) was no small task but thanks to our Patrons and donor community we did it!

 

Our new home on Manitoulin Island is already amazing, but it does need a lot of work in order to establish our standard operations. The property was not used as a farm for over a decade and so our first hurdles were installing hydro and water to the barn, fencing the barnyard and of course transporting animals. Our plan was to create a space that was sufficient to survive winter while we planned our LOOOOOOONG list of Spring projects. Since moving, we were able to accomplish some really exciting projects, including fencing new paddocks. We were able to fence about 50 acres so far which everyone is thoroughly enjoying! There is still a long way to go and we could use your help with:

  • Building, repairing and/or replacing infrastructure throughout the entire property.

  • Barn repair: The barn is huge, but it still needs some major work in order to provide the clean safe home that our residents are used to. The inside of the barn was left full to the brim with old hay and straw among other garbage and debris. We are working on emptying it so that we can have it clean and organized for the animals (and tours!). The roof has been replaced so finally when it rains outside, it no longer rains inside further destroying the building as the wood is rotting. 

  • Installing new flooring in the upstairs. 

  • Regular veterinary checks for all residents. This isn't new but is a good reminder that we strive to provide superior preventative health care to our residents which takes time and money!

  • Fuel expenses for the many tools we are using to work, work, work. This includes diesel for the tractor, petrol for the side by side, chainsaws, chipper etc. 

  • And so much more...
