At Kindness Ranch, we do our best to stretch every dollar. All expenses are closely scrutinized, especially those that does not directly affect our sanctuary animals lives. That’s why the decision to buy another piece of tractor equipment took awhile.
Last winter, we were hit by feet of snow in a short amount of time. Our buildings are spread out over many acres; getting to our animals was a challenge. Our only tool was our tractor with a front loading bucket. Using this tool that was not designed for snow removal, it was a long, tedious process to clear a path for vehicles to get to our dogs, cats, horses, sheep and pigs. So Project Snow Blade was launched.
Advertising on our website, our Facebook page and a crowd-source funding site, we successfully raised enough money to purchase a used snow blade that is in excellent shape. It should serve us well and we’re better prepared for this winter and beyond.
Many thanks to all of you who sent donations for our “tractor fund” and helped Kindness Ranch purchase the tractor blade. A huge majority of our budget comes from supporters like you!
