CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm

You may have heard the saying "I don't know if animals go to heaven when they die, but if they don't, I want to go where they go." This always reminds me of CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm as many of the animals who come from abused and neglected lives are "reborn" when they arrive at this special, all-volunteer run charitable organization. Horses that were starved find all the hay, grain and fruit they could dream of. Dogs who were abandoned now have friends (both human and canine) to play with. Pigs, once contained in small 2' x 7' crates in condemned factory farms, upon arrival, are thrilled to have acres to explore. And, goats who were malnourished on what little scrub they could find in their "previous lives" are now quite pleased with their diet of grain, hay and fresh vegetables. The volunteers, board members, and founders all share a passion for rescuing, rehabilitating and reintroducing in-need animals. It's a magical place with nothing but happy endings.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching the transformations of an abused, abandoned or neglected animal. To witness the process of distrust or malnutrition turn into confidence and optimal health is nothing short of miraculous.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, generous, patient and absolutely incredible human beings.

Ways to make it better...

I had only partnered with this organization sooner.

One thing I'd also say is that...

some charities have big staffs, expensive rents and high marketing budgets that reduce the effectiveness of received donations. Not this group, as all staff are unpaid volunteers, land/facilities are donated and they really stretch every dollar received.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
