Barn Items Needed:

Under the direction of our veterinarian, the barn program adjusts the feeding protocol to the needs of each animal, varying on the age, species and health of the animal. With the turnover of animals and the difference in feed types, we would greatly appreciate gift cards so that we can purchase the specific feed needed at that particular time.

Throughout the year our program frequently needs to repair or replace items and fixtures in the barn. Having gift cards would also enable us to buy the necessary items as the need arises.

We are in need of a barn loft ventilation fan system to help our barn animals stay cool in hot weather
