Seer Farms was just announced as the winner of the $10,000 grant from the OceanFirst Foundation's Charity Challenge. We cannot thank the friends and supporters of Seer Farms enough for the amazing support you gave us throughout this challenge. Our army of dogs, cats, horses, and the people who care for them did an amazing job raising money to support the work we do AND securing our victory in the challenge.
Some of our supporters have asked how they can donate to us now that the Challenge is over. You can go to our page on Crowdrise at: www.crowdrise.com/seerfarmsinc.
We especially want to say "Thank You" to Kathy Durante from the OceanFirst Foundation for having the vision to launch the Charity Challenge in support of Jersey Shore non-profits. Because of her, all of the non-profits that participated in the Charity Challenge were winners.
Seer Farms' mission is to give pet-owning families that are in crises such as these time to reach safety and stability by temporarily caring for their animals until the families and animals can reunite.
Seer Farms' has saved hundreds of animals from certain euthanasia. The family pets who are placed temporarily with us are clearly loved by their families, but many of them would not be good candidates for re-homing if they were surrendered to an animal shelter. They are older, scared because of the circumstances their family finds itself in, and at times struggling nutritionally and medically. Seer Farms gives these animals a temporary home and stabilizes their health as much as possible. They are safe with us.
Former Seer Farms' client Margaret O'Connor explains why Seer Farms is so unique and essential. “ In January 2013 I was about to undergo back surgery. I was getting everything in order. A caretaker for my Mom who lives with me was my greatest concern. I had that covered. My second greatest concern was who I could get to watch my two Shih Tzus, Leo and Mopsy. I couldn’t afford to board them for two months! What to do? We found out that Seer Farms helps people who were in my exact situation. My prayers were answered. The weekend before I was to go into the hospital, we dropped Leo and Mopsy off, a tearful experience. The good thing was I knew I’d be returning to pick them up as soon as I was able to care for them again. I couldn’t wait to get them back. The house was so quiet without them. They bring such happiness to Mom and me. I can’t thank Seer Farms enough for their help with my dogs. I was at ease knowing they were with people who truly love the animals in their care. I don’t know what I would have done without them!! They are angels!”
Seer Farms relies on your donations to continue our work. Every day more families like Margaret's are turning to Seer Farms to help them care for their animals temporarily. Currently, 350 animals are in our care, and many more are awaiting openings in our facilities. Donations can be made at: www.crowdrise.com/seerfarmsinc.
Thank you again for all of your support!
