West Place Animal Sanctury is a beautiful small farm whose owners have rescued various types of animals, i.e. various types of birds, goats, sheep, horses, cows, cats, and dogs: providing loving care at their own expense. Many of these animals were injured, unwanted, or left without their parent to care for them. An example is a flock of baby wild turkeys who lost their parents. Wendy cared for them until they were able to live on their own. One was a runt with a broken leg and wing who would never be capable of living in the wild. With the care of a vet,she nursed it back to health and takes care of it on the farm. Really extraordinary.

Invisible from the road, when you drive up the driveway you find a haven for a myriad of animals. From a retired racing greyhound, to aging horses, rescued domestic ducks and rehabilitating wild turkeys this sanctuary has a place for everyone. The outreach to the community is enhanced by its proximity to a local Land Trust park. I seen many of their animals come to their final resting place as well as many rehabilitated and sent back into nature. All of them were treated with care, dignity and love. The best thing WPAS could do is fundraise to be able top employ full time help. This would increase their ability to rehab more wildlife.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching the local law enforcement community have a place to bring injured or displaced wildlife. They are very appreciative to have a place to bring these creatures.

Make specialized areas for sick animals. As with most animal rescues, space and money are the only things holding them back.

West Place Animal Sanctuary is a remarkable haven for all sorts of fauna and fowl. I have known the caretakers of this property for many years, and can truly attest to the fact that they develop a deep and personal relationship with each and every animal who arrives and spends any amount of time there. Whether it's a migratory bird with an injured foot in need of a few days' rest and rehabilitation, or a displaced farm animal in need of long term care and permanent shelter, all new arrivals and residents alike receive the same impeccable care and utmost attention to their every need, while benefiting from the safety and security of a beautiful facility which somehow seems to be constantly expanding and improving.

Indeed, West Place has grown in recent years from a small part -time operation to a full scale refuge for all kinds of animals in need. I have witnessed firsthand this transformation, which can only be explained as a labor of love. From the contruction of a brand new barn with state of the art stall and feeding facilities, to the redesign, landscaping and detailing of the onsite pond which provides an astonishingly natural-like habititat for birds and fish alike, or the seemingly ever-expanding area of paddock designated for the happy grazing of the numerous four-legged residents, it is obvious that at West Place, the wellbeing of all furry and winged residents takes precedence over everything else. It has been a truly enjoyable and spiritually rewarding experience to watch West Place become what it is today, and it is good to know that so many of our animal friends here in Rhode Island can now have a chance to benefit from such a perfect sanctuary where they are provided with round the clock treatment, care and love in order to get a much-deserved second chance.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing numerous animals taken in and cared for, and also witnessing the release and return of many of them into their natural habitat.

Ways to make it better...

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

find a way to get the name out so more people are aware of them in case they run across an animal in need of rehabilitation.
