For over 20 years, Gallastar has been a beacon of Light and Hope for the Voiceless. We have combined rescue, recovery and sanctuary to save the lives of hundreds of farm animals. We are home to over 150 animals, all of which were saved from slaughter, kill shelters, or in immediate danger. These rescued souls, along with the evidence based practices and our expert therapists, have transformed and healed the hearts, bodies and spirits of hundreds of children who have been abused, neglected or suffer from seen and unseen disabilities.
We are now ready to expand our award winning program to a larger property that will allow us to grow our outreach to help even more of those without a voice. We will move from our 12 acres and 24 borrowed acres to a new 68 acre facility that will be one of the finest farm animal sanctuaries and animal assisted therapy centers on the East Coast. We will leave the home that Ron built by hand from the ground up and Lorelei's dreams come true. It is not a choice we would ever make for ourselves but it is worth it for these special creatures and all those that will benefit from the larger, more manageable facility. The guest house can allow us to have interns to stay, veterans can assist us and use their skills while finding well deserved peace and healing. Local animal shelters will have a place to house lost or homeless livestock and we will offer victims of domestic abuse a place for their farm animals to stay during their transition to safety.
Please help us continue to share the message that it is Kindness and Compassion that will truly save us all.
A generous donor has already donated fifty thousand dollars toward the down payment. With the success of this fundraiser, we will have enough for the down payment on the new farm.
