After years of our family taking in and caring for animals we decided to become a non profit. In 2018 “Two Hands Farm & Rescue” received our non profit status and we have been very busy ever since. Currently we care for 10 dogs , 10 cats, 2 donkeys, 8 goats, 4 bunnies, 3 pigs, 2 ferrets and 46 birds ( chickens & quail) on our property. In the next few years we hope to buy a larger farm where we can give our current rescues some more space, as well purchase more barns and kennels so we can take in & care for more animals . We have partnered with shelters and rescues in CA, TX and North & South Carolina to rescue, foster and re home cats and dogs in Maine and are currently looking for local foster families
(we are pretty full until we can move/expand and need fosters to offer space for ongoing rescues).
Taking in emergency rescues & special needs animals over the years we have become very familiar with the local vets, vet specialists, holistic vets and the emergency hospitals. In addition to routine medical care, there are emergencies, surgeries and appointments to specialists. We want to be able to keep taking in higher needs animals, so we are are reaching out to the community to help us raise funds to help with these costs. In addition to helping with housing, food and vet bills, we hope to raise funds to help with ongoing rescue fees ( adoption, travel and vetting) and to start an emergency vet fund. We also always have ongoing fencing costs & also need electric and plumbing work for the barns.
Our long term plan involves offering education to the public & opening a small farm store – eggs, maple, honey, produce, flowers, health products (salves, tinctures, etc) to help raise funds. We hope to take any excess funds we have each year and donate them to a local vet to provide funds for free medical care to community members who need help with medical costs.
We know these are lofty goals BUT if we can partner with enough people that care, we know that can reach our goals.
