Rebuild Farmaste's Emergency Vet Fund for Give to the Max 2023! 

During Give to the Max 2023, we are asking you to donate to help rebuild Farmaste's Emergency Vet Fund! When you care for 25 farmPhoebe Needed Emergency Hoof Care animals, emergencies happen. We need to be able to take action when the health of one of the residents is at stake. The past year was an expensive one, with many residents needing emergency care and prolonged hospitalizations. Within just a 10-day period in August, Farmaste spent $5,580 at the University of Minnesota Large Animal Veterinary Hospital. 

In the past year, Farmaste's unexpected medical costs included:

  • Hospitalization and end-of-life care for Jeka
  • Emergency hoof care for Phoebe
  • Emergency uterine surgery and end-of-life care for Kristen
  • An urgent dental procedure for Otis
  • Hospitalization and parasite treatment for Luna
  • Urgent care for an eye infection for EvaKristen Needed Emergency Surgery
  • And more…

We would do it again in a heartbeat, but we need your donations to make sure that every resident is able to receive the compassionate, high-quality care they deserve. Having an emergency veterinary reserve has become even more essential. While in past years other non-profits offered emergency grants for sanctuaries, as finances have become tight across animal rescue those funds have been depleted. 

With your gift today, you will guarantee that each of Farmaste’s residents will receive the personalized care they deserve, whenever it is needed, in the coming year. Due to a generous match provided by some of Farmaste’s most loyal supporters, your donation will go twice as far in giving the residents the peaceful and healthy lives they deserve. Thank you for your unwavering support of Farmaste’s residents! 

About Farmaste Animal Sanctuary

Farmaste Animal Sanctuary is Minnesota’s only Global Federation of Animal Sanctuary (GFAS) verified sanctuary for farm animals. We believe that all animals have inherent worth and that farm animals are not an exception to that rule. We rescue abused, neglected and unwanted farm animals and bring them home to roam in the pastures, and live out their days free from cruelty at our 28-acre sanctuary in Lindstrom, MN. Our residents include Timothy, a Hereford steer from a WI farm who is blind due to untreated pink eye; Blue, a Khatadin sheep who required a front limb amputation due to congenital defects in all three bones of her leg; and our three pigs whose mother was rescued pregnant by the ASPCA from the largest case of farm animal neglect in the Northeastern US. Our animal residents receive top-quality veterinary care, access to spacious pastures and cozy barns, and good friends with whom to live out their lives. At Farmaste, these animals are able to find zen living as someone, not something.
