PROMISED LAND ANIMAL SANCTUARY RECEIVES GRANT FROM 100+ WOMEN NORTHUMBERLAND
NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY – Promised Land Animal Sanctuary (PLAS) is excited to announce we have received a $5,700 grant from 100+ Women Northumberland. PLAS’s mission is to provide care and permanent sanctuary to neglected, abused, homeless and older farm and domestic animals in need, and to promote a kind and compassionate lifestyle through humane education. We are a registered charity and are funded entirely by public donations.
This generous grant from 100+ Women will help support a campaign called ‘Reasons to Love’, which will install signage on the sanctuary grounds, highlighting little-known facts about farmed animals, in an effort to educate the sanctuary visitors and facilitate a compassionate human-animal bond. As well, printed pamphlets will be handed out offering resources for a healthy, cruelty-free lifestyle.
Since opening its gates in 2017, PLAS has rescued over 150 animals and is currently home to 78 furred and feathered residents. “We fill a need in the community by taking in animals that local residents can no longer properly take care of, for various reasons”, says Kat Krylov, executive director. “All of our residents receive the best of care for the rest of their lives, which includes proper shelter, good nutrition, the best veterinary care and of course lots and lots of love”.
Special thank you to Shelley Steele for nominating Promised Land and a huge, heartfelt thank you to the amazing 100+ Women with Heart for their generosity and for recognizing the value in what we do. It takes a village to help the voiceless and we are so incredibly grateful for each and one of your kind hearts.
