A nonprofit organization based in Amenia is hoping for support through donations.
The mission of the Animal Farm Foundation is to bring dogs and people together to end discrimination.
Its service dog program trains former shelter pit bulls to assist people with disabilities. Another program the nonprofit offers is its farm sanctuary. This program cares for rescued retired cows, horses and other animals.
News 12 is told the Animal Farm Foundation’s hope is to teach people about what they believe is the cruelty in factory farming.
“I want everyone to know that we are a solid investment,” says executive director Stacey Coleman. “One of the things that are so important to us is that we do things in a way that’s really financially responsible.”
Coleman also says much of the organization’s funds go directly into programs. “We’re not ad happy like so many other places. We don’t have a lot of overhead.”
Pets Together, a virtual animal program, that helps with isolation and loneliness due to the pandemic is also an option at this facility.
To donate, visit the Animal Farm Foundation website or the Pets Together website.
