Our Annual Hunter Pace was held on Oct 27th, 2013
It turned out to be our most successful yet! We had a beautiful fall day with perfect weather. Once again our volunteers delivered some fabulous food for the participants, great prizes and some amazing costumes. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to either volunteer or participate. Can’t wait to see you again in 2014!

Tara Farm Rescue is a nonprofit animal sanctuary located at 670 Babcock Hill Road in Coventry, CT (Telephone 860-742-2215). We are funded by private donations and staffed by volunteer workers of all ages and from all walks of life. The Rescue was started in 1982 by BonnieJeanne Gorden who has dedicated her life to easing the suffering of animals. Originally started as a home for unwanted horses, Tara Farm Rescue has expanded and now unwanted, neglected and abused cows, pigs, rabbits, chickens, goats, dogs and cats are taken in, rehabilitated, and when possible, placed in adoptive homes. When new animals arrive at Tara Farm, they almost always need veterinary services and this can be costly. The lengthy rehabilitation process and maintenance of at least 140 animals at any given time that are under BonnieJeanne's care require a constant cash expenditure. We at Tara Farm Rescue vow to do everything in our power (including engaging the help of highly-trained professionals) to ensure that our animals receive the best care possible.
