SEER FARMS INC’S FUNDRAISER:
“SEER FARMS’ SECRET WISHES”
Shhhhhh. The animals at Seer Farms have some secret wishes that we want to share with you. And enlist your help in realizing. These are special animals who, along with their families, have been through so much. Help us make their secret wishes come true. Please donate and fundraise on behalf of one or more of these animals!
Seer Farms cares, temporarily, for the animals of families in crisis. Since our inception in 2009, we have reunited nearly 1000 pets with their families. 400 families have already been made whole by the services we offer.
On any given day, we have approximtely 350 dogs and cats in our care; beloved animals placed for safekeeping at Seer Farms because their family
- has fled a domestic violence situation;
- is rebuilding and elevating their home after Superstorm Sandy or another disaster has destroyed it;
- is in a hospital, rehabilitation facility or undergoing treatment like chemotherapy or stem cell treatment and cannot care for their pets until their medical condition stabilzes;
- is in the military and has been deployed overseas and cannot take their pet with them during their off base service to our country;
- has lost their home due to economic crises but knows that they will soon be able to take their pets back.
In each case, the family just needs a helping hand caring for their pets until they get their lives situated. Seer Farms is that helping hand. We are proxies for the families who place their animals in our care.
Like any good pet owner, we learn to “read” the animals we are caring for. We know what they are thinking. What they like and don’t like. What they wish for. Of course, we know that all of them are counting down the days until they are reunited with their families. Every time a family visits with their pets, we see the love they share. And the pets feel it. Absolutely they are waiting for the day when the family takes them with them to their new home.
But we also know that many of these animals have a good sense of what will make their stay at Seer Farms better. And they are asking you to help make these wishes a reality.
Support our team members – the Seer Farms’ animals – and their secret wishes. Shhhh. But don’t tell them we told you what they were thinking. Let that be our secret.
A PEOPLE-CENTERED ANIMAL SANCTUARY: KEEPING ANIMALS SAFE AND FAMILIES TOGETHER
Seer Farms is a New Jersey based 501c3 community services organization that provides animal care, resources, and support for pet-owning families in crisis. This safety net gives families facing domestic violence, financial turmoil, a health crisis, natural disaster, military service or other life crises time to restore their lives by caring for their animals until the family can be together again. Seer Farms provides for the animals on a temporary basis while the family deals with the crisis and reunites them once the family is able to care for their pets again.
We do not believe that giving up precious animals during difficult times is necessarily best for the animals or their human companions. We believe that families in crisis need time to repair their lives and that they benefit from the emotional support they derive from their pet and the peace of mind that comes from knowing their animals are being cared for while they themselves overcome their life crisis. To help families recover, Seer Farms provides resources and support that enables a family to navigate the barriers to their own self-sufficiency. These resources and support are also intended to assist pet-owning families in pre-crisis planning and preparation; helping them mitigate the impact of their crisis on their care of their pets.
Founded in 2008, Seer Farms has a unique perspective on animals and their people, and how to keep them together as a family during difficult times. Our Out of Crisis program fills an important void in the human social services and animal care services offered in the mid-Atlantic and beyond. Our origin and ongoing service reflects our commitment to families with companion animals and the animals themselves. Seer Farms is a safe haven, providing the lifeline of time and compassion to families in crisis and their companion animals.
