Chief Financial Officer / Founder

Dolores Harris

 Since 1960's to present, I have had extensive experience working with all types of large farm animals, specializing in horses, goats and poultry. My experience has been both through hands-on working, managing day to day activities, recruiting volunteers and setting up our own nonprofit for our vast array of surrendered, abused, aged out large animals. Since the 1980's my experience with rescuing large farm animals has continue to grow, Today, due to the overwhelming need for housing and care of these large animals my efforts continue even more. With my end goal to make sure each animal here has a safe and loving home.

He is gone over the road working much of the time, but when he is home you can find him doing handy man jobs, and construction projects needing to be done around the farm. Anthony is quick witted and always has something to offer any situation around the farm. Anthony is a natural leader and keeps different areas of fundraising such as Trash to Treasure on track and constantly flowing. Being instilled with great work ethic, organization, and punctuality has helped make him a vital part of our organization.
