The story of how Rags came to live at Locket's Meadow Farm

BENEFITING: RESCUES WHO RESCUE INC
Ragano, the dog that makes it happen at Locket's Meadow Farm animal sanctuary has torn the ACL on both back legs. Rags has spent ten years on the farm with Kathleen Schurman, his mom, collecting farm animals from abuse, neglect, and slaughter. Together, Rags and Kathleen (and Kathleen's husband, David) have rescued hundreds and hundreds of animals, and currently take care of about 150 on the farm in Bethany, CT. Many of these animals are special needs and require endless patience, love, and work. Ragano is normally glued to Kathleen's side all day everyday, helping to herd naughty goats, licking a newborn foal's ear, making sure the pigs get some exercise . . . Now he is in constant pain, and the vet says surgery will be $10,000. Kathleen and David put every penny they make into the sanctuary, as well as generous donations from folks all around the country who are fans of the farm. Even so, there is rarely an extra penny after the hay, grain, farrier, and vet bills are paid. I have known Kathleen and David to go without groceries so the animals are cared for. Now we need people to step up and help even more. The farm needs Rags - please help us raise the surgery funds so that Ragano can return to his work at the farm! Locket's Meadow is a 501c3, so all donations are tax deductible.
