Dearest supporters of Herbivorous Acres,
I write this letter with a heavy heart. As you know, we were scheduled to close on a property in Milaca, MN, on September 1. I am sad to share that the sellers decided to cancel the contract for reasons beyond our control so we find ourselves without land for our sanctuary and must go back to the drawing board.
Our 501(c)(3) status remains active, of course, and we have Fox the Pig who will continue living with a wonderful foster family until we are able to find new land. While we are disheartened that we came so close to moving forward and sharing our dream with you, we know the right place is out there for us somewhere. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, and we welcome any and all leads on land (ideally within a few hours of Minneapolis/St. Paul).
Thank you to everyone who has supported us from the beginning. Your encouragement, donations, and patience mean more to me than I can adequately express. Now that our initial fundraising campaign has ended, we will also work on fulfilling donor rewards so you will receive follow up information soon.
As Executive Director of Herbivorous Acres, I am deeply saddened by this news, but know that I will continue to work as hard as I can to make Herbivorous Acres an organization that will be the change we all want to see in the world that will help farm animals find the peace, dignity, and happiness they deserve.
