Our yearly operating budget is approaching $500,000, and your generous donations are needed and appreciated. Here are just a few examples of daily expenses...
$6 per day per horse and cow, $12 in the winter months when grass is scarce; that’s a lot of hay!
$200 per day to feed the pigs and $400 in the winter!
$10,000 per year for winter bedding to keep animals healthy, cozy, and warm.
$2,000 per year for treats of sugar, peanut butter, fruits, and vegetables to keep all animals playful!
And so much more...
We are currently working on expanding Rooterville to take in more animals in desperate need and relocating to the Orlando area to make access easier for one and all! This expansion and relocation is very expensive as well, but it will give us the opportunity to help many more animals. All donations are tax-deductible. If you want, you can choose what you’re funding or which wonderful animal you want to sponsor!
