Charity of the Month for February/March: Whispering Rise Farm & Animal Sanctuary
Every month we highlight a different animal or veg charity. The Charity of the Month for February and March is Whispering Rise Farm & Animal Sanctuary in Freeland, Maryland.
Whispering Rise Farm & Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide sanctuary for surrendered, abandoned, or seized potbelly pigs who are products of the pet pig trade. They further the mission by providing humane education to the public, and offering an anthrozoological experience to individuals and groups. The sanctuary is available to those who want a volunteer or community service experience. They offer an anthrozoological experience to children, youth and adults who are looking for a more intense spiritual or emotional connection to animals in need.
More information can be found on their Veg Groups page.
Whispering Rise relies completely on the generosity of the public to operate the sanctuary for these magnificent animals. Donations can be made through their PayPal link, or by check to WRFAS, Inc. P.O. Box 102, Freeland, MD 21053.
