We are funded by private donations and staffed by volunteer workers of all ages and from all walks of life.
The Rescue was started in 1982 by BonnieJeanne Gorden who has dedicated her life to easing the suffering of animals. Originally started as a home for unwanted horses, Tara Farm Rescue has expanded and now unwanted, neglected and abused cows, pigs, rabbits, chickens, goats, dogs and cats are taken in, rehabilitated, and when possible, placed in adoptive homes.
When new animals arrive at Tara Farm, they almost always need veterinary services and this can be costly. The lengthy rehabilitation process and maintenance of the 144 animals under BonnieJeanne's care require a constant cash expenditure.
We at Tara Farm Rescue vow to do everything in our power (including engaging the help of highly-trained professionals) to ensure that our animals receive the best care possible.
