Looking for a farm to open a small Animal Healing Place, Rescue and Sanctuary


?

Land Seeker Description

My plan is to create an Holistic Animal Healing Place, Rehab and Sanctuary for cats, dogs, horses, whatever comes our way.

The rehab and sanctuary will mostly but not exclusively be for cats, dogs, horses or whatever needs our help. Resident animals will be cats and dogs, a couple of horses and some goats and chickens.In addition if space allows and there is vicinity to a city/town we’ll have small Country Doggy Camp, a no-kennel dog boarding place, and possibly rent out a couple of horse stalls, all to fund the Sanctuary. My longterm vision would be a community outreach program to teach children the responsible husbandry to animals and the land and possibly offer animal based therapies.

I have been trained in Reiki Level I and II, will shortly become a Reiki Master and am also currently training in a couple of different modalities of animal energy healing and communication.

I have worked in equine facilities, animal shelters and have attended a course by Roots of Resilience and am planning to operate holistically/permaculture. In order to have pastures for rotational grazing I am looking for a 50 acres plus.

If possible/available I’d like to turn part of the property (as much as possible) into Conservation Easement.

Obviously the ideal property already has barns for equipment and hay, the required machinery for hay (although the other option is utilize a coop), fenced pastures etc. I’d like to have a house build with my own plans but I am flexible.

This will be a 501c.

 


What features of the property are essential?

water rights, electricity, hay fields or land providing the soil, Barns and stable would be great and equipment as much as I can get for what I need

Describe your housing needs

I prefer to have my own house build according to my ideas and needs. I have a motorhome in which I can live in the meantime or utilize a farmhouse/cottage which will be renovated for the purpose of having a farmhand live there or rent it out to guests.
