This year marks the birth of Sky's The Limit Sanctuary! Thanks to the great people at Cupid's Landing, we were given the last push we needed to make our dream become a reality! We are on track to becoming an official 501(c)3 non-profit charity starting in 2017.
Since incorporating in September, we have had several sweet souls land here at Sky's. Our first rescue as a sanctuary was Drago. He was rescued by Rooster Sanctuary At Danzig's Roost in Colorado and was rehomed with us in October! Drago has been through a ton with humans in his short life, but he is now safe with us and learning every day how to trust us a little more!
Soon after we took Drago in, Nutmeg and Cinnamon, two very young chicks, were abandoned at the Humane Society in Tacoma, WA. Mae Tipple, of Cupid's Landing, contacted us to let us know there were two more chickens in need of a new home. We took them in on the assumption they were both hens, but were surprised when a crow started bellowing out of Nutmeg's beak! It was so cute listening to him find his voice. He is now a grown rooster with an impressive crow! Unfortunately, they were both sick and malnourished when they came to live with us. They needed constant care and attention. With your help, we were able to raise a $650 dollars to go toward their care and were able to nurse them back to health!
In early November, we were contacted by Little Red Bird Sanctuary in California to take twelve more chickens into our flock. With this newest adoption being 11 battery hens and a rooster, we had to undergo some extensive preparation for their arrival. A new coop was job one. With the help of Cupid's Landing and our donors, we were able to raise $1,500 for the new coop and for the future care of our flock!
Last but not least, on December 13th, we rescued Roix from the Humane Society in Tacoma. He spent nearly two weeks in the shelter. One prospective adopter failed to pick him up, so we stepped in and brought him to safety. He is currently spending his first 30 days in quarantine where we discovered he is suffering from a case of scaly leg mites. He is now being treated and should make a full recovery!
Launching Sky's The Limit has been a costly endeavor. With the influx of new residents, our expenses are at an all time high. We have put a temporary hold on new rescues until we are able to raise more funds for their proper care. It is our duty as a compassionate community to provide for the animals we brought into existence. Please make a year-end donation in any amount you can afford. Every dollar helps make their lives better.
In 2017, we will launch a sponsorship program which will allow you to become a recurring donor!
Thank you all for your continued support! We look forward to an amazing 2017!
