Giving Provides Help for Displaced Farm Animals

The Gress Mountain Ranch is a nonprof i t animal sanctuary for large, small, and exotic animals, dedicated to educating and helping people and animals that have been victims of abuse, neglect and their subsequent effects.

Volunteers are also needed.

Also needed are gift cards for Tractor Supply, Bird Mania, Quakertown Vet Clinic, Highland Animal Hospital, Orefield Vet Clinic, Giant, Weis, Wegmans, Weaver’s Hardware and Home Depot for the needs of 77 animals.

Other needed items include a Large All Weatherproof Piggy House, New Entrance Sign, timothy hay, straw, pine shavings, clumping litter, Purina dry cat food, Cheerios, shredded wheat, duck, senior horse and alpaca pellet food, bird millet sprays, lettuce, canned pumpkin and carrots.

Location: 3264 Highland Rd., Orefield. For more information or to sponsor a child, call Kathryn at 610-398-2122 or email GressRanch@gmail.com.
