START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Oct 22, 2007
Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Read
Location: United States
Please forward this to all your contacts and groups, and advise them if they can be on call for either evacuation, or loading/unloading the Gentle Barn animals when we finally can bring them back home, to email me:
We need loving people to come to Animal Acres and help feed and water our rescued rescues.  We need food!  We need bedding!  We need everything you can think of that goes with farm animals to make them comfortable, calm, and feeling safe.  So LOVE is a good thing to bring along, too!  If you come to Animal Acres, tell them Susie sent you; that way we'll know if this system's working.
I'd like getting emails so I can compile massive lists of who and what can do what.  We need folks on standby (always, not only now) in case Animal Acres needs to evacuate -- standby with trailers, trucks, the ability to load and unload panicked animals.  So email this to every group and person imaginable, so that they, in turn can email me with any and all information. 
And please thank all these people FOR me, okay? 
Thank you, everybody, who's been contacting me non-stop to offer help!  It's AMAZING how many of you love animals that much!!!!!!
With all my heart,


We want to thank everyone for their calls and emails regarding our situation, and for your commitment to the safety of the sanctuary animals. Currently, we are not in a fire zone, however, we are assisting Gentle Barn, another farm animal sanctuary, with their evacuation and temporary animal placement needs due to the fires in the Agua Dulce/Santa Clarita area. Fortunately, because of the dedication of volunteers and individuals who helped us buy animal transport trailers, WE WERE ABLE TO SAFELY EVACUATE ALL OF THEIR ANIMALS, and the animals are now being cared for at Animal Acres.

Given the state of emergency in southern California, it is clear that additional fire evacuation areas need to be established for farm animals, and we are focusing all our efforts on this over the next two weeks. We DESPERATELY need YOU to help with this effort.
PLEASE help by:

1. Coming to Animal Acres to help care for evacuated animals here. We need caregivers from 9 am. to 3 p.m. daily. No appointment is necessary. Directions may be found at

2. Volunteering to help set up an emergency evacuation area for the Animal Acres animals. We need volunteers to help put up fencing and other jobs. The more volunteers who can pitch-in, the sooner we can have a site ready for evacuation needs. Volunteers are needed EVERY DAY from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call (661-269-5404) if you can join us, and let us know what day(s) you'll be joining us.

3. Donating for evacuation needs. We URGENTLY need funding for temporary housing sheds, evacuation site fencing and corrals, water troughs & water hoses - and we need to purchase one additional transport trailer to be able to evacuate all of the animals immediately. Your donation, in any amount, will means so much. Please click here to donate online.

On behalf of ALL of us at Animal Acres, and the animals who need our assistance at this difficult time, THANK YOU.

Lorri Bauston, President
