Tara Farm Rescue is a non profit association run entirely by volunteers. We are always looking for new helpers, whether it's mucking stalls, brushing the animals, exercising the animals or help with the general upkeep of our 54 acre farm.
Tara Farm Rescue is a nonprofit animal sanctuary located at 670 Babcock Hill Road in Coventry, CT (Telephone 860-729-4317). 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.
Tara Farm Rescue relies on the dedication of our all-volunteer staff to make a difference every day.
Tara Farm Rescue relies on donations of money. food, medicine, and animal services in to order to maintain a healthy level of care for our rescue animal residents. It costs $6,200 a year to care for a single horse, and Tara Farm Rescue is home to many other animals as well. We are a registered 5013c Non profit, meaning your donations are tax deductible.
