Uplands PEAK Sanctuary Receives $5,000 Animal Care and Housing Grant
Uplands PEAK Sanctuary, Inc. has received a $5,000 grant to assist with animal care costs and housing. With this grant, awarded by The Humane Society of the United States, Uplands PEAK Sanctuary hopes to expand and provide care for more rescued animals.
Uplands PEAK Sanctuary, Inc. rescues and rehabilitates abused and neglected farm animals, educates the public and promotes sustainability.
Erin Huang, Indiana state director for The HSUS said: “Most farm animals suffer inside factory farms where many of their basic needs are denied. Farm animals at Uplands PEAK Sanctuary, on the other hand, can live out their lives in a loving setting where they’re free to exhibit their natural behaviors. The HSUS is proud to be supporting the sanctuary.”
Mark Pruitt, co-founder of Uplands PEAK Sanctuary, Inc. said: “The grant will let us complete the new pig shelter and move the pigs to their new area. This will give us the space and resources to take on new species while continuing to provide the quality care all animals deserve. We are happy to partner with HSUS.”
Uplands PEAK Sanctuary, Inc. celebrated their official grand opening on Saturday, June 7.
