Peaceful Prairie Update
Dear friend of Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary,
After months of fundraising, making offers and counter offers, it looked like we finally were in reach of acquiring the adjacent property for the sanctuary expansion. Friday afternoon we were still a few thousand short of our goal of $110,000.00 but, by Monday morning, we were there.
Unfortunately, someone else swooped in and made an offer *over* $125,000.00 and the bank countered their offer with a higher price, which the people accepted. We don't know the final amount that it has been contracted at, but we do know that we are now out of the running.
To all of you who so promptly and generously responded to this opportunity to help the sanctuary, THANK YOU. Because of you, we were able to raise funds and awareness of our work and our need for a new Education & Visitor center and on-site housing for our amazing volunteers – now, and for generations to come.
There is still the possibility that the other buyer's contract will fall through if their financing falls through. If that happens, we'll have to start the whole process over again. It has been a grueling process and a rollercoaster ride – not the fun kind, either. But this is necessary for the sanctuary's future, so we will take another run at it.
If their financing does go through, we'll have to move to Plan B which is going to be much more expensive and time-consuming, but needs to be done. We'll build a brand new Education Center and housing on the existing sanctuary land.
Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary's rescue and lifelong care of former victims of egg, dairy and flesh production, as well as our tireless vegan advocacy, is needed now more than ever. With your continued support, we will keep moving forward and NEVER give up on the billions of animals who need us!
