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.

Why is this one this list in the first place? This place is a hell-hole raided by the officials, found a scam and the owners received jail sentences. Makes this entire website suspect.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Burn it down.

The owners of this "sanctuary" are now sitting in jail. Great non profits indeed. How about taking this link totally off your page, since the judge banned them from contact with animals.

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.

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.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Burn the place to the ground, then make it a dog park

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not allow them to continue.

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

In 2012 I adopted an animal from there who was so badly cared for I had to immediately spend hundreds of dollars just to get the dog into good health. Not to mention a ridiculous $350 dollar adoption fee which covers nothing but a free office visit. The dog I got was covered in fleas and was only given capstar because I had inquired about adopting it. He was underweight and obviously was kept in a cage in a dirty area. Also heartworm positive and full of gastro-intestinal worms. Within a two weeks of having the dog and putting him on better food he lost his entire coat of fur. These people are no better than a puppy mill they take every small dog they can out of shelters just to keep it in filth why they wait for some poor animal lover to come pay them hundreds of dollars. That money doesn't go to the health of the animal your adopting and nor does it go to helping more dogs. Beware of any animal from here!!!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Require inspections and limitations on how many dogs these people can have and or take from local shelters.
