We have 2 weeks!
Facebook is great for networking for things like this... so I have to try! For months now, the animal loving staff at "The Children's' Farm" in Palos has been trying to find a home for "Lucy" a sterile Holstein cow that doesn't really have a purpose & desperately needs a home. They are running out of time, she will have to go to auction at the end of November so we have 2 weeks!
Lucy is kid friendly & beautiful. A gentle giant. I've offered to give her a home but I have no room in my barn. All of the animals would have an indoor space at night except her & winters can be harsh. She needs a shelter.... she can be out in pasture all day with the other animals but needs to have a warm place to rest at night. I've agreed to take her on & give her a home, care & to feed her but the shelter expense is not within my winter budget.
The Children's Farm staff has offered to take a day & come build the shelter & even haul "Lucy" out here to my farm when the time is right but... I need help raising the funds... or just getting the lumber donated for her shelter. I can't imagine that it will cost much. Something like a 10x10 or 15x15 wood panel lean to with a roof is all she will need.... anyone have any lumber connections!?
Lets make "Lucy ~ Lucky" this Thanksgiving!
Contact me through " Erin's Farm " to help! Thanks!
In the comments below we have a list of the lumber needed. Its about $1100
