Amazon's Prime Day is almost here. Deals start July 16, 3pm ET and run through July 17. Prime Day is one of the biggest shopping events of the year and we wanted to remind our supporters to shop at smile.amazon.com and Amazon will donate to Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary Inc.
Last quarter we received over $300.00 just from supporters using Amazon Smile. This is an extremely easy way to support us without spending any additional money! Have a business that uses Amazon? You can utilize this program as well.
What can $300.00 do for for Happy Trails: Six horses can get their hooves trimmed. Eighty-six bales of straw can be purchased Nineteen bags of feed for the farm and potbellied pigs Four gallons of fly spray for the horses Thirty nine jars of SWAT for the horses and farm pigs So much more......
We are so blessed to have the best supporters and appreciate every donation, large or small. Everything helps these wonderful animals. ... See MoreSee Less
There is always light at the end of a long journey.
Not much is known about the past of our newest pig, Stanley. He was rescued from a bad situation by a concerned citizen. They were not zoned for pigs and only had a basement to keep him in while trying to find him a permanent home. This was proving to be difficult and The Pig Placement Network reached out to us to see if we had room for him.
Stanley is a sweet pig but is not neutered. This will be a big part of becoming a happy, healthy pig and Happy Trails will help him with his journey. Once neutered, he will be available for adoption to a family or individual who will have the patience to help him along.
Congratulations to our long time supporter and volunteer, Don Reckner. Don was looking for a mini horse and fell in love with Merryweather. Knowing Merryweather and Misty are best friends, he adopted Misty too. Our two little M&Ms finally found their forever home, and what a fantastic home it is.
On a side note, we are always rescuing. After delivering the minis to Don, we noticed a tree frog had hitched a ride from Akron inside our truck. He was relocated to a tree at Don's property to enjoy his new life in the country.
Its going to get hot again!! The fan in the pig's log cabin finally stopped working and a fan is necessary to keep the piggies cool and comfortable.
The fan we are needing is a heavy duty, high velocity fan and the cost is $89.00. The first person to sponsor the fan will receive a Happy Trails decal as our thanks. Please see our website to sponsor, just notate it is for the fan.
Great news! Poseidon has found his forever home! His adopter met him and fell in love with how sweet he is...especially how he loves to be held. He now has a huge, beautiful pond to swim in and will be getting some duckling friends in the near future. What a great ending for him! ... See MoreSee Less
I am so glad he found a forever home. I miss him terribly but could not care for him the way he should have been cared for. He would climb in my lap at night and I would pet him until he fell asleep. He looks happy now. Thank you new mom.
Way to go Poseidon
Now that’s moving on up in the world and you deserve it little buddy
