This is so amazing thank you everyone! I am trying to personally thank each one of you but there are just so many it will take time!! I just want to cry each time a donation comes in...oh wow all I can say is thank you! Thank you all who have given so generously! Abbey and Wes are amazed at all the support they have received since this all began. As Abbey's sister, I can not express how thankful I am for all who have helped Abbey and Wes. I wish I could make this all go away but since we cannot do that I am going to fight to make it better anyway I can. To those who have donated time, money, Alpacas, support, and kind words, from the bottom of my heart... thank you

Thank you to all who have donated! We are eternally grateful! We raised the bar but we have already gone well passed what we ever imagined we would raise! Abbey and Wes built a house and farm together. They built the farm with love and a passion for animals! Together they raise and breed Alpacas on their farm. They started with 2 and as of a week ago they had 15 with 3 more on the way. They loved these animals and it showed! On Sunday August 26th Abbey and Wes came home to find that all 15 of their Alpacas had been brutally mauled by 2 local dogs. Sadly 11 Alpacas including 2 pregnant females have died. Abbey and Wes are heartbroken and devastated at what has happened. The images they came home to will never leave their minds. All of their beginning herd was lost and all the babies ever born on the farm as well. The cost of this devastation has hit over 60,000$ which the insurance on the farm will not cover. The owner of the dogs is not accepting responsibility, and appears to have no known resources to cover the losses. The sorrow that Abbey and Wes are feeling will be hard to ease. We cannot bring back the Alpacas they lost or take away the pain that they are feeling or erase the horrific images of that day, but we can help them re-build their farm. Help us raise this farm up again to be the peaceful, happy, beautiful place it was before all this happened. Thank you for your support!
