Review for Darlynns Darlins Inc, Polk City, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a volunteer at Darlynn's Darlins rescue ranch for the last six months. The ranch is home to several hundred animals - pigs, a cow, a horse, dogs, and cats - all loved and tended to by Darlynn and her husband Butch. The organization is operated on a very limited budget, yet I've never known Darlynn to turn away an animal in need away. Catering for animals that other rescues don't accept and that are often misunderstood by the public, Darlynn's Darlins inhabits a vital niche in the animal welfare world - how many other places in the Tampa Bay area do you know that would take in an unwanted, malnourished, neglected pig, and then do everything possible to nurse her back to health?

The ranch is roomy and shady, and the animals spend their days munching on hay and laying in the sunshine. They love attention and cuddles, as well as animal crackers and sprays with the hose. Please consider donating to or helping out at Darlynn's. Visit once and the animals will happily trundle over to you for a scratch behind the ears and a rub of the belly; visit twice and eager faces will remember you and grunt with excitement that you're back for more.
