NEWS: First Edition Print Sale and Fundraiser

BIG NEWS!

For the first time EVER, I’m going to give access to prints of my rescue animal portraits! After much thought, I have decided to do this to further my mission of spreading these lovely beings’ stories and raise money for the sanctuaries that have saved them. I am starting with Here With Us Farm Sanctuary!

All prints are 4″ x 6″ and are $10 each. 50% of the proceeds will be donated directly to Here With Us Farm Sanctuary. For the sake of transparency, and because I struggled with whether or not to sell prints, I want to share that I donated my time to the sanctuary to capture these images. I don’t wish to make money off of the portraits or stories of rescued animals and the hard work of the sanctuaries that care for them. I made the decision to donate 50% of proceeds so that I could use the remaining proceeds to help cover the cost of production of the prints, mailing, and time and equipment involved producing the portraits and managing the sale.

For this first run, I have 10 different prints, and I have 5 copies available of each. I am hoping for a good response so I can continue to release images and raise fund for the many sanctuaries I have visited!

See below for photos of the prints that are available and to read the story of the rescue animals depicted! Please consider supporting Here With Us Farm Sanctuary with a purchase of a high quality photo print! Contact me to claim yours. Venmo, PayPal, cash, or check are all accepted.

ALICE
Alice has the best ears in the game! This proud mother goat was rescued from an extremely overcrowded farm. More than 100 goats where living in a small area with virtually no grass and very little human interaction. Her baby boy Eddie was rescued and lives with her at Here With Us Farm Sanctuary. Once she is completely healthy and ready, she will get to join the rest of the goats at Here With Us in the large pasture.

COCOA
Cocoa arrived as an owner surrender. She was very shy at first but has already started to open up thanks to the loving and compassionate care she receives at Here With Us Farm Sanctuary. She clearly has a playful and curious personality. She is sure to become a big hit at the sanctuary!

DARBY
Darby is the second half to the goat duo that started Here With Us Farm Sanctuary. Both he and Patrick were saved from a neglectful farm. They were malnourished and walked on their knees due to hoof rot. Darby has recovered nicely and has become very friendly and happy. He always has a little smile on his face which is evident in these photos!

EDDIE
Eddie is Alice’s sweet baby boy! He is a bit shy right now, which is no surprise given the difficult start to his life on an overcrowded farm without human interaction. Eddie is very curious and sure to melt many hearts of visitors of Here With Us Farm Sanctuary in the future. Look at that smile!

JACK
This handsome 6-year-old Nigerian dwarf goat is Jack. He and his buddy Sheldon are owner surrenders who were given a new home at Here With Us Farm Sanctuary. Here With Us was told that Jack and Sheldon were going to be shot if they did not find a new home. Jack seems to have suffered neglect by his last owner as he is still timid and learning to trust humans. He’s never received vaccinations and came to Here With Us with worms and mites which might be the cause of the missing hair on his face. Jack has one twisted horn which gives him a unique and distinguished look.

PATRICK
Patrick, along with his friend Darby, is the first resident of Here With Us Farm Sanctuary. Back when Patrick first arrived in July 2018, Here With Us was just starting in a small Lancaster County backyard. They have grown a lot since then, and so has Patrick. He is a handsome goat with a big beard and a lovable underbite!

PEANUT
This pretty lady came from a massive SPCA rescue in Philadelphia. Over 1,000 baby chicks were saved from filthy living conditions where they lacked food and water. All of these chickens would have been taken to slaughter. Cornish Cross chickens are typically bred for meat consumption. They are bred to grow at an extremely fast rate so that they are slaughter weight at just 8 weeks old. Peanut is now about 8 months old (at the time of this photo) and will live peacefully with the other wonderful animals at the sanctuary.

RALPH
Ralph rules the roost at Here With Us Farm Sanctuary. He is stunningly handsome with deep black eyes and bright orange and iridescent feathers. Ralph was found as a stray and is believed to have survived a scuffle with a cat. He was saved by Animal Care & Control Team Philly (ACCT Philly) and transported to Here With Us. Ralph is also the sanctuary’s alarm clock and wakes everyone up at 5:40 a.m. sharp every morning!

REGGIE
Reggie was born on the same dairy farm as Ronnie. Since he is a boy and cannot produce milk for the farm, he was going to be sent to slaughter. Thankfully, the farmers had a change of heart. Reggie is a shy young boy, but when he warms up you will be treated to his sweet personality and affection. When I met Reggie a recent vet visit had him extra timid, but I was surprised and thankful to find him approaching me and my camera after just a short time in the pasture with him!
