It happened in seconds, while walking Tupac, the 3-legged puppy who is my companion. One minute we were walking towards the gate and the next, his leash was out of my hand, and he was running in the opposite direction, away from the two large dogs running towards us—dogs who are not safe to be around humans or other animals they do not know.
They saw my beloved pup and ran for him—and so did I. Shouting into my radio, I was able to call for help. Thankfully Tupac was faster on 3 legs than either of them were on 4. I was able to distract their attention as he made it to safety. One of them tore into my arm but then he backed down and ran away.
Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt, and no visitors were on the property. But more than a dozen people—several children—were on their way for an event that morning.
What if they’d been here? What if someone had been hurt?
That’s why I need your help–today.
Your gift of $25, $50, or even $100 will help prevent situations like this from happening in the future.
The fencing and barns you have helped build over the past 5 years are stronger and sturdier than ever. As darkness falls each night, my heart is easy—everyone is safely tucked inside. All 200 beloveds are inside their barns for the night, nestled in bed. But outside the fences and barns, there is a danger lurking and it’s not just from neighborhood dogs.
Coyotes, foxes, and bobcats populate the woods surrounding the property. Some of our fellow humans can also put the animals and our guests at risk. You’ve seen the horrors of school shootings and attacks on groups of people. Classrooms and churches are no longer assumed safe. As much as Indraloka is a welcome place for all, even with our open doors and open arms, there must be a protected boundary. That is why I’m reaching out to you today.
What could have been different? What could be done to prevent a future incident? Several years ago, a predator attacked one of the sheep.
Most of the animals you support are prey animals—sought by one creature or another as food— the very end from which they’ve been rescued still threatens them. What can be done to remove or at least lessen this threat?
An investment in security is critical today.
Cameras, alarms, fencing—all of these could have prevented neighborhood dogs, natural predators and hurting humans from causing harm. Indraloka welcomes more and more visitors with each passing year and the impact on our community has been encouraging. But everyone who visits must be safe.
Will you help ensure the safety of everyone who sets foot on this beautiful land?
Your support of $50, $100, or even $500 today will help build a fence around the entire property and install security cameras that can alert us quickly to any danger.
Your gift will help begin this project now. Security is something we take very seriously, and it cannot wait.
But this is an added expense that has not been possible with the rising costs of food, hay and all that needs to be done to get ready for winter.
You can help make sure that we can install a security system AND continue to provide the best possible care for the animals.
Will you help? Please make your gift today.
Warmly and with gratitude,
