Our Featured Pet...Peggy

Peggy is a small mixed breed female approximately 7 years old who was hit by a car and taken to BARCS who called FARM to rescue her. She was at Animal Emergency for several days. Peggy had lacerations to the head; several broken toes that had to be splinted; and a injury to her abdominal wall. She was operated and is expected to make a full recovery. Her expenses to date are about $2000+. We were the only ones who stepped up to help Peggy and now we could sure use your help. If you would like to donate to their ICU bill please click to get to the link to donate through PayPal. Thank you.

A special thanks to Madonna Veterinarian & Staff, Companion Animal Care Center and staff, Best Friends Fur Ever and BowWag Kennels for helping us with our animals this year. We also want to thank our wonderful volunteers, Barbara, Sally, Tami, Jim, JT, Candy, Candia and Kelly. And, of course, thank you to everyone who has donated to us and/or adopted one of our pets. We couldn't do what we do without you!

Our Mission

The F.A.R.M. was started by Greg and Barbara Bertling to find homes for some of the wonderful, loving pets abandoned, lost or given up and scheduled for euthanasia at area shelters. Thus, FARM means the difference between life and death for the pets rescued.

We provide food, shelter, medical care, behavioral evaluation and affection. We take great care to find responsible, loving, permanent homes for each pet we save.

The FARM has rescued and placed over 8,000 dogs and cats since its beginning in October, 2000.
