What your donations accomplish
Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary is housed on Cathy’s 24 acres at no cost to the sanctuary. Therefore, all donations go directly to the animals’ care, with the exception of some office supplies. Cathy does not get paid for the work she does, caring for the animals alone with very little outside help, despite serious health problems. Cathy does much of the vetting and the hoof trimming, too.
$20.00 will buy a new hoof rasp for the hoof trimming that Cathy does herself.
$30.00 will feed the numerous wild quail, doves, rabbits and ravens we feed for a month.
$40.00 will feed Rambeau & Stripey, the Barbados sheep, for a month.
$15 will buy a 50# sack of the hay pellets that Knickers and Warrior require, as they are old & missing teeth.
$15.00 also buys a 100# bale of hay. We use 2.5-3 bales a day to feed 10 burros and 14 horses.
$30.00 buys a bucket of the vitamin mineral supplement the equines get and will last 3 weeks.
$40.00 will supply a burro with hay for a month.
$80.00 buys enough hay to feed a horse for a month.
$148.00 will cover a ranch call when we need the vet to come (not very often, as good management is the best medicine).
$208.00 will cover the cost of a dental for one equine.
