2018 Year in Review at the Farm

What happened at Star Gazing Farm during 2018?  Who are the new animals?  Who passed on to the rainbow bridge?  What are our projects?  You can read our letter here, or see the PDF version all nicely formatted here!

We surely need your help!  You can make a tax-deductible donation and know that your gift will go directly to helping the animals in our care, some of whom have been previously abused, some who have special needs or were born with birth defects, and many of whom are simply just really, really old.

Click here to directly go to our donation page.  Every contribution helps and is deeply appreciated.
