Your generous donations have now been distributed to those drought-affected farmed animal sanctuaries most in need. In deciding how to divide up the fund, we have tried to be fair and support those where it will make the most difference for the animals. We looked at the number of animals cared for by the sanctuary, the type of animals (eg cows vs chickens), whether the sanctuary's own pastures are affected by drought, the increase of hay prices in the area, etc.
We have now distributed the first $10,000 received. But more is still needed to cover all the extra expenses incurred by sanctuaries affected by the drought.
I have heard from many sanctuaries that the drought has caused extreme financial and emotional distress and that this still is a crisis situation in many places.
