The Story

We are a senior couple who for twenty plus years have dedicated our lives to the rescue of unwanted, abused, injured animals by giving them a loving, caring and safe home to live out the rest lives with us. We lost our facilities recently and are desperate to get help to provide housing for our babies. The expenses have become more than we can handle I am sixty two years old and suffer with COPD along with severe arthritis wich have made it hard to keep up financially. We operated a What Not Shop where we sold a variety of items that we picked up at auctions and rummage sales etc. I traded horse training for hay, grain, dog food, vet work, whatever we could do to keep everyone fed and happy. I am no longer able to work like I have in the past and so for the first time in twenty years we are asking for donations.  At the present time we are a permanent home to eleven dogs, nine horses, one sheep and two nanny goats that were to be destroyed due to they have a deformaty in their front legs. They are all special needs and need special attention, no shortage of love here as my wife and I spend time with them everyday.  Your donation will save lives and help us continue to help these very special helpless animals, we never turn down an animal that needs help. We never want to stop loving and caring for our babies. Please find it your heart to help us. We are located in Southeastern Missouri. Our facility is the only chance for our rescues to live out their lives cared for and loved in a safe warm enviroment. Losing our facilities was devastating for us, that is why our need for donations is immediate. Time is critical please consider being one of our supporters, every dollar donated goes directly for the purchase of feed and toward housing.  Help spread the word of our fundraiser to all pet and animal lovers. Contact us for more info, Thank you and God Bless, Jasper and Leah Calo.

The photos show some of the shelter's permanent residents. The horse, his name is Blue is as he looked when he came to us, underfed, full of worms and in such bad health that I didn't think he would make the trip home. But as you can see by the other photo that he is doing great and will never want for anything again. The red Angus heifer is Tillie, she was bitten by a snake when she was two days old and we picked her up, her owner at the time told me that if we didn't take her he was just going to knock her over the head. Although her leg was deformed and walked with a limp she lived out her life with us and was a pleasure to care for. The white dog is Lonesome, he was in with a herd of sheep from six weeks old until he was three, he had never had any human contact and so when the sheep were sold at an auction nobody wanted him. We heard about him just in time to save his life, he was so wild that we had to sedate him by putting it in his food and finally get him to the shelter where he has lived for five years and will stay the rest of his life. Please keep us in mind and help with your donation. Tell your friends about us, we have an immediate need for donations. Thank you.
