We are designing our 25 acre farm in Harlem, Georgia to be a safe haven for not only neglected and surrendered animals, but also a place where children who have medical/special needs or difficulties in life can visit and feel independent, involved, and one with our environment.
We discovered the power of our atmosphere, and how nature can do amazing things for these kids.
Our bio son has cerebral palsy and nonverbal/wheelchair dependent.
Our adopted son was total vent tracheotomy but defied odds, now running around like a typical 5yr old boy.
Our sweet Cassie, who came from foster care, we took in as a terminally ill baby. Although she defied all odds and lived two remarkable years, Cassie took her last breath July 9th, 2022.
Fueled by the positive changes we've seen in our biological, foster, and adopted kids, and our mission to honor the memory of our beautiful daughter, we have created Mad Hatter Farm and Rescue, with the plans of opening Cassie's Care Farm in 2023.
Our goals for Mad Hatter Farm and Rescue:
1) Make ourselves available to those in our community who are searching for a safe place to land for their sick, injured, elderly, or simply unwanted animals.
2) Provide comprehensive medical care from nose to tail including vaccinations, bloodwork, deworming, dental care, hoof care, chiropractic work, and everything in between.
Our goals for Cassie's Care Farm:
1) Design and create an easily accessible, interactive farm experience, complete with a Butterfly Garden, Sensory Green House, Petting Area, Gardening Boxes and more.
2) Provide a safe, inclusive environment for foster kids, special needs kids, and any others to come connect with nature and experience the healing that comes from life on the farm.
The farm is in constant need of donations to continue to feed, house, support, and rehabilitate our animals.
We have goals of new fencing, more run-in style shelters, separate turnouts, and a horse trailer to transport our rescues to and from vet appointments and to their new homes when adopted!
Donations made towards Cassie's Care Farm will be put towards handicap pathways around the farm, raised garden beds, renovating our barn into a "teaching barn" for children to learn skills such as soap making and fiber spinning, and more. We also have plans to install medical hook ups for charging ventilators and other medical equipment for special needs and medically fragile children.
We would be truly grateful for any donation, no matter the amount! We also accept any items such as horse tack or brushes, fencing materials, or any other farm equipment.
It ALL makes a difference.
Remembering our Cassie...
