Help / Sponsor an Animal

Sir Tripod Goat, a crippled three legged Misfit, enjoys his morning light .

There are many ways to help Apifera's animal work:

  1. Send a donation to the annual fund
  2. Send a direct donation
  3. Monthly sponsorship [see below]
  4. Donate an item we might need

Apifera's mission: to be a care farm for animals in need of shelter or hospice, and bringing people, animal and farm together for mutual healing and peace.

1]Sponsor an individual animal:
When you sponsor an individual animal, you will get a newsletter updates with photos. Sponsors will also be invited to the farm to meet their animals { I plan to have Sponsor Days}. Sponsors who choose to send more than the "suggested" monthly donation will be rewarded with appropriate items depending on what they give [I always send a book after $50, for example].

My hope is that with sponsorships, people can get to know a creature better, and actually come and commune with him or her, and perhaps also learn more about animal care and communing.

The current roster of Misfits you can sponsor [this might change as new animals come on board, or our elders pass on]. You can email me to let me know what animal you are sponsoring. And if you prefer to make one donation for the entire year, visit my Paypal page. I also can accept checks. 

Suggested donation for these animals is $5/month
- Rosie  [World's-Grumpiest-But-I'm-Fine-As-I-Am- Pig]
- Wilbur the Acrobatic Goat
- Sir Tripod Goat [crippled, ony three legs in use]
- Moose and Goose two goats
- Opie, a pygmy [therapy goat]
- Anna, Yume and Tigger the elder cats brought in from the shelter

Suggested donation for these animals is $20/month
- Mother Matilda, an elder donkey
- Paco the Poet a mini donkey

Suggested donation for these animals is $1/month
-The Little Men: five house finches
- Isabelle Noir: an abandonned rabbit

2] 2017 fundraiser with reward levels, at my GOFUND page.

If you don't want to sponsor an animal, you can make a donation at the fundraiser which covers basic feed/med/bedding for The Misfits. It doesn't cover emergencies,  vets or farrier work, fencing etc.

I am also trying to raise money for materials to build a quarantine shelter for incoming barn animals. I have developed a relationship with Maine's state veterinarian so that Apifera can be a safe haven for certain barn animals that need temporary or long term shelter/care after being found in neglectful situations.

3] Direct donation

If you prefer you can  donate directly to my  Paypal link and enter any amount you choose.

Anytime anyone donates $25, I send an "Itty Bitty & Big Etta" book; $50 gets you copy of "Donkey Dream" or "Misfits of Love". {Please note, international addresses need to pay additional shipping if they want a book.}
