‘Tucker’ was sullen on his first day at Five Acres (pictured at left). Today, he is a happy, healthy and confident dog at his forever home (pictured at right).

Dear Friends,

As the end of another year approaches, I think back to all the lives saved and the families that have grown by adding furry family members, and I’m filled with gratitude. I’m thankful that we have the opportunity to make such a positive difference for the animals in our community. It’s only because of you, our loyal supporters, that we are able to save so many lives each year, and we have accomplished so much together in our 45-year history. But our work is far from done. There are still so many innocent animals out there whose lives hang in the balance and who desperately need the security, compassion and love that Five Acres provides.

To the animals who we help every year, Five Acres is a safe haven. It’s where they feel comfort, warmth, love and healing. It’s where they feel hope for a brighter tomorrow and the promise of a loving home. For every animal who comes through our doors, Five Acres is a lifeline that they would not have had otherwise. When we look in their eyes, we know they are depending on us and trust us to help them toward a better life filled with happiness, health, love and family. When you donate to Five Acres, you allow us to fulfill this promise.

Because of you, we were able to save dogs like Tucker. This sweet boxer had been surrendered to an Animal Control center after being brutally abused and neglected by his “family.” The reward for his loyal companionship was to be left outside in the elements, underfed and forced to withstand blows to the head with a hammer. When Tucker came to Five Acres, he was injured, sick, hungry and defeated. We also discovered that he had parasites and was suffering from heartworm disease. Your donations made it possible for us to provide his much-needed veterinary care and treatment so his healing could begin. Tucker received the love and comfort he needed in his foster home before being adopted by his loving, forever family. He is now beloved, irreplaceable and has the life he always deserved!

It’s heartbreaking to know that these precious dogs and cats have been let down by society through no fault of their own. But because of your generosity, compassion and support, we’re able to give them the chance they need and deserve while helping them find their family who will love and care for them.

Rescued animals seem to know that they’ve been given a second chance, and they enrich our lives in so many ways. During this season of giving, please remember Five Acres and make an investment in helping the orphaned animals in our community. Thank you for your partnership and support and for standing with us to fulfill our lifesaving mission!

Your donation can be mailed to us with this form, or you can donate online below or Facebook. We thank you for your compassion and generosity.
