The Issue: New Grazing Pastures Lack Water for Animals
West Place Animal Sanctuary provides a safe place for injured and elderly animals to live in comfort. It provides food and medical care, as well as abundant space in which to roam. The sanctuary recently added eight new pastures for the animals to graze, but these pastures do not have access to shelter and water, which are necessary to keep the animals healthy.
The Campaign: Constructing a Water Source for Pastures
If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then West Place Animal Sanctuary can construct a water source on one of its eight animal pastures. Each additional $400 raised will fund another water source. The new grazing area will provide the resident animals with a vast space to graze and explore. With the new water sources in place, the sanctuary will be able to accept more injured and elderly animals.

West Place Animal Sanctuary
In 2003, Wendy Taylor Humphrey’s house caught fire, killing her two dogs, six cats, and pet goat. Devastated, she searched for a way to overcome her loss by helping other animals. She trained as a wildlife rehabilitator and founded West Place Animal Sanctuary four years later to help provide shelter and recuperation for abandoned and injured farm animals and wildlife. Today, the sanctuary serves as a home for a variety of animals ranging from domestic ducklings and rabbits to wild turkeys and sheep. Sanctuary volunteers and part-time staff members receive abandoned and injured animals, nurse them back to health, feed them, and provide them with space to roam.
