Mission: The mission of the West Place Animal Sanctuary, an IRS recognized nonprofit organization, is to provide housing, food and medical care for both injured and orphaned wild birds, waterfowl and wild turkeys as well as unwanted farm animals. The West Place Animal Sanctuary provides both short-term and long-term care as necessary. West Place provides rehabilitation services for the ultimate release of the aforementioned types of injured or orphaned wildlife, and provides placement services for farm animals whenever possible.
Results: This year we raised funds to provide water sources to new pastures we created.
This peaceful sanctuary gives both unwanted farm animals and injured wild ducks and wild turkeys a fresh start. Organized by a DEM permitted wildlife rehabilitator, West Place has a constant influx of waterfowl and Eastern American wild turkeys, providing food, shelter, care and necessary medical attention. The animals are also utilized to educate the public, by appearing at festivals and Easter Egg hunts around the area. Animals of the sanctuary have been featured in various newspapers and the RI Bar Journal.
