We need donations of:

Volunteer Help with feeding and chores during these long Rochester winters.
Help with our scholarship fund to further our work - 2016/2017 student placement.

Donation of newer equipment  to help run the program. Any thing helps from towels, to shovels, wood to nails, to professional service help on our equipment.  Such as welders or small engine repair.
And very key is our veterinary fund to cover emergency costs.
