Review for Alchemy Acres Animal Sancturay Inc, Salem, OH, USA
I began volunteering with this rescue many years ago when I read a newspaper article about all the animals tthe Sacco family from Alechemy Acres were helping. There were dogs, cats, turtles, rabbits, llamas, goats and just about any animal that needed a place to stay. They opened their hearts and their money to help every abandoned, abused and sick creature that came into their path. When donations were down, they took from their own paychecks because they were committed to do all they could to help suffering animals that no one else would take.
I remember reading a story about a dog in my area who had been hit by the owner's motorcycle. This caused much pain and injury to the dog's spine and back legs. The dog was not given any Vet care and was left to suffer alone in the yard. The police were notified when the neighborswatched as the poor dog would crawl to the bus stop to greet the kids coming home. The dog was removed from the home and Alchemy Acres was the only one who would take this dog and work with her. It took a long time to get this emaciated, injured girl, they named Hope, to the point of a good weight and where she could walk again! She has some problems with her bladder still but the Sacco family continues through the years to give this girl a good life where she will never suffer again.
There are so many stories of how Alchemy Acres no-kill shelter has helped the worst of the worst abandoned dogs and cats and yet continue in their work to find them homes and love because everyone of them deserve it.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
If I could, I would like to work with Alchemy Acres more to help them find more ways to fund the costs for the animals. They do as well as they can but I would love to help search for alternative funding and grants to help when donations were down.
