West Place Animal Sanctuary
Review for ASPCA - American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, New York, NY, USA
West Place Animal Sanctuary got involved with the ASPCA in 2016 to help out with an animal cruelty case in Massachusetts. They spent several months on site organizing and running the operation and they did not leave until they succeeded in finding homes for every animal. From that cruelty case our organization agreed to take in goats, sheep, ducks, peacocks, partridges, quail, pheasant and fish, and in turn the ASPCA assisted in making sure we had the needed housing for these new rescues. Without their help, we would not have been able to offer our help to the animals. We cherish this new relationship between the ASPCA and West Place Animal Sanctuary and we look forward to being involved with them in the future for all the good work they do.
Review for West Place Animal Sanctuary, Tiverton, RI, USA
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.

The gratitude that is expressed by people that find injured animals and do not know what to do with them makes it worthwhile. They are so happy that an organization like this exists.

The only way to make this sanctuary better is to make it bigger. More buildings and pastures would allow more animals to be rescued. Additional volunteers would be a great benefit!
