Napier Family Farm & Animal Rescue

Napier's Log Cabin Horse & Animal Sanctuary, inc. has been providing good, loving adoptive homes for dogs, cats, horses and livestock since August 2004. It is a licensed not-for-profit 501(c3) animal rescue that is operated in Agriculture Zoning, permitted by the County to have kennels.




MISSION: To provide a temporary home to homeless animals until a permanent adoptive home can be found. Also to help educate the public about adopting and taking care of homeless animals to help the county in becoming a “no-kill”
community where no adoptable animal is euthanized just for lack of space/time or treatable illness.




The Sanctuary is run by volunteers - no paid employees - providing housing, food, and medical care for dogs, cats and farm animals until an adoptive “forever” home can be found.

As this is a Family Home, (NOT an Open-to-the-Public Facility),
All Visits Are By Appointment Only as We Come and Go Due to Errands and Job Committments. Our Schedule is Pretty Flexible and Every Effort Will Be Made for Convenience to Adopters -
Normally Available: Noon to 8 pm, 7 Days a Week.
A Phone Interview is Required to Start the Adoption Process and
All Decision-Making Family Members Must Be Present for the
Visit with the Chosen Animal.
Due to liability issues with the abused horses/animals walking around on the premises no drop bys or kennel walk-throughs are permitted. Visits are done upfront one-on-one in a quiet, safe area for adopters and all the animals on the premises.







FREE & LOW COST DOG & CAT SPAY/NEUTER
Call (941) 749-3067
for recorded information about free and low cost dog & cat spay/neuter programs in Manatee County. Provided by Manatee County Animal Services & updated periodically with new programs available to the public.



Adoption donations help pay for emergency vet bills, shots, worming, spaying/neutering, microchipping, coggins for horses, food, shelter, transportation, transfer fees to save them from high-kill shelters or auctions, heartworm testing and monthly prevention. Some animals require more money and time from sicknesses or some are unadoptable and need care for life. The Sanctuary needs all the donations an animal is able to bring in as the money is used for ALL the animals to provide the above services. While vet care is provided at reduced rates thanks to generous vets that work with us, it still is expensive!

VETERNARIANS USED BY THE SANCTUARY:
Dr. Fleck, Animal Medical Center of Bradenton (dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits)
Dr. William Whitler (Dr. Bill) of Solasassa Veterinary Services, Sarasota (horses, pigs, goats, farm pets)
Director of Veterinarian Medicine: E. E. Dunham, DMV




WHY WOULD AN ANIMAL RESCUE HELP A BREEDER?

*We rescue these dogs because if we did not, they would likely be euthanized - one way or another.

*We rescue these dogs because they deserve a chance for a good life ... to become a part of a family and get to be loved.

*We rescue these dogs because they need our help and that is what rescue is about.

Often these dogs are kept in kennel runs or cages, never given the chance to walk in the grass or to come into the house to be a part of the family. Most don't even know what a toy is or even how to play with it!

It takes time and patience to socialize these dogs - both before and after adoption.

THIS IS WHY WE FEEL THEY DESERVE TO BE HELPED.





RUSSELL ... before and after



The Sanctuary is currently working with the Florida Department of Agriculture to re-instate it's solicitation license
that it has currently held for the past 8 years.


At this time, while the Sanctuary is unable to solicit the public for donations,
the Sanctuary has placed all animals in homes and
is awaiting the decision of the Florida Department of Agriculture.




The Sanctuary is run by volunteers - no paid employees.

2014 Brings New Goals to Continue Helping in the County's "No-Kill" Efforts

For the past 3 years the Sanctuary has focused on saving animals from euthanization directly from Animal Services. This year, the Sanctuary will focus on saving animals directly from the community BEFORE they end up at a local Animal Services so there is NO chance of euthanization leaving more room for animals that do end up at Animal Services.
