A few months ago my husband and I were looking to adopt a cat and found one on Petango that we really liked. We contacted Napier's Log Cabin Horse & Animal Sanctuary and we went to pick up the kitten on that same day. Napier family had rescued him from a high kill shelter and we thought he was about five months old but we couldn't really tell because he was very underweight, due to the poor conditions in which he had been at that high kill shelter. It took him several weeks to recover, and now he is a healthy, loving and sweet kitten. He has brought so much love to our lives and we feel fortunate for having adopted him. We will always be grateful to Napier family because had they not rescued our kitten from that place, we would not be sharing our lives with him now. What this family does is amazing and they need all the help we can give them.

NOT A NON PROFIT this is an LLC. Why would it be on the greatnonprofits.org??? Horrible place who's raid cost the tax payers close to $100,000 to provide emergency care, transportation, personal time, court time, to clean up the mess they made. It should be against the law for them to own animals of any kind.

All you need to know about the "sanctuary" is in the Bradenton Herald Newspaper http://www.bradenton.com/2014/03/09/5035945/manatee-animal-services-received.html. Bottom line is if you can't go into the place, don't adopt or pay money for a pet from it. Statistics show that about 25% of "non profits" are really puppy mills, so caution is necessary.

A horrid place. Please Google and make sure to watch the footage of this so called Rescue. The animals lived in their own waste. There were multiple state agencies that raided the place with a search warrant, and they removed over 300 animals. Your tax dollars paid for this. Many animals paid with their life. And poeple please realize any place that does not let anyone in EVER, is not a place you want to adopt from. This man and wife were only in this to take your money.

How a s***hole place where they pulled out 300 starving dogs, cats and horses is on a list called "Great Nonprofits" is beyond me. Makes me question everything on this website.

BEWARE...NOT REGISTERED WITH THE STATE like they say they are...Not only has this place been raided by the sheriff's office, the state has not renewed their permit to collect funds by soliciting.
Here is the link from a local news station that posted the letter from the State to Napier's Log Cabin.

2/5/2014 This so called "Sanctuary" was the subject of a search warrant, and over 300 animals were removed from the property.
The property was condemned by the Heath Dept. There is some live footage here http://www.abcactionnews.com/dpp/news/region_sarasota_manatee/bradenton/300-animals-seized-at-bradenton-sanctuary

This is not rescue, nor was this a Sanctuary. Citizens have tried to get this place closed down for years, based on the filth and smell, and the condition of animals adopted out.

If a rescue does not let you in to inspect, it is a red flag. Do not believe all the martyr statements. This was a hell hole, where animals slept in their own waste, and drank their own urine. Kibble was thrown on top of feces.

Please note that this Rescue/Sanctuary was raided by local Sheriff and Animal Services on 02/05/2014 and resulted in closure and seizing of roughly 300 animals.
According to reports, the living conditions were so horrible, the home was condemned and the rescue workers had to enter property wearing hazmat suits.
For more information you can search articles from the Bradenton Herald.

Manatee County Sheriffs just confiscated over 300 animals due to poor health conditions at this location. In the video below taken of the raid you can see horrible conditions, dogs living in soiled crates covered in roaches
