From Nicole of http://brizel4theanimals.etsy.
I am absolutely delighted that my BrightHaven nomination for the month of November was chosen by the Radomizer... and here we are... Team EFA (Etsy for animals) are raising money through our sales to benefit this wonderful organization !
When you have a moment, please visit their web site: http://www.brighthaven.org
There is a wonderful video introduction on their front page.
Their mission statement reads: "BrightHaven is dedicated to the rescue, care and enhancement of the lives of senior and disabled animals. We are also dedicated to a program of research and education, arising from the miraculous results we have seen, when the balance of natural feeding, holistic care and modern medicine are used in a loving family environment."
"BrightHaven is a Healing Arts Center for animals and our primary focus is to educate the public on the many natural alternatives to conventional health care or euthanasia."
"Our focus is, in particular that of hospice care and transition itself. Over the last fifteen years we have offered both sanctuary and hospice care to hundreds of animals, and wish now to use our experience to help others care for their senior or special needs animals."
"Currently BrightHaven is home to 34 cats, four dogs, four horses, a pig, two goats and a number of farmyard birds and the work load is intense! These animals and birds are our close family members and we journey through their care we are constantly learning more and more and find ourselves very well able to offer advice based upon our experiences."
"We are extremely hopeful that, through our program of education others will now come forward to open their hearts and homes as we have done and continue this extraordinary mission we have begun."
"We also envisage that, as the word is spread both by us and also the ever changing and growing veterinary community, that many will undertake the care at home of their senior or special needs pets."
Many members of EFA (Etsy for Animals) will give part of their profits to help this wonderful cause... here are some of the items that will benefit BrightHaven if sold during the month of November.
Out team leader Michele, Etsy store owner mvegan5, created this wonderful treasury to spread the word throughout Etsy !
