2019 BENEFICIARY – Founded in 2004, our mission is to provide life-long care for our rescued animals, and to educate the public about humane animal care and practices. We rehabilitate, both physically and psychologically, mistreated animals and, if possible, we will find appropriate homes for them. In an effort to prevent further cruelty to these animals, we educate the public on caring for companion animals as well as on issues concerning farmed animals.
2019 BENEFICIARY – Founded in 2015, Into the Light Horse Rescue and Sanctuary has one mission: to rescue, rehabilitate, rehome and/or provide sanctuary to slaughter-bound horses. The project advocates for horses who come from equine feedlots, have been abandoned, neglected and/or abused. These horses, often mares and foals, come off the lots with significant physical and emotional issues. Into The Light focuses on stabilizing their immediate health needs, while showering them with love and compassion.
2018 BENEFICIARY – Founded in 1989, Animal Place’s California animal shelters fills a much-needed niche of farm animal rescue, sanctuary, education and adoption. Animal Place is one of the largest and oldest animal sanctuaries in the nation. We operate a 600-acre sanctuary in Grass Valley, California, and a 60-acre animal shelter in Vacaville, California. Animal Place extends compassion to all life with a special emphasis on farmed animals. This is executed by providing permanent sanctuary, education, legislation and appropriate placement of needy animals.
