It's been a long time goal of mine to open a rehabilitation farm for both abused and neglected animals and kids. Partnering them together can benefit everyone.

As a single mom to five, it's important to me to instill the importance of always giving back and as an animal rescuer it's important to me to educate kids on abuse and to find solutions to the problems. The Devoted Barn will be that place for kids and animals but I can't do it alone. We need farm equipment, daily care items such as feed, hay and bedding as well as vet care. We will need ongoing support but with that support we will change the lives of many.
