  Mickey is a 2 year old European Fallow Deer in our Zoo. She is leash trained, housebroke, and used in our educational programs and field trips and goes on many fundraisers with us. She is very popular with the children and the adults that meet her. She is very sweet and loved by all. We adopted Mickey from a Hunting camp when she was 2 days old. On Thursday the 13th of June of 2017 the Electric Company large boom saw trucks came in to clear branchs from their power poles/electric line. They did not notify us that they were there so we could secure our deer. Mickey became frightened and tried to jump between the trees and caught her foot in the vee of a branch and was hanging by her foot. Her ankle was broken with a compound fracture, and her leg broke in multiple places We rushed her to the our vet in Gainesville. The vet said the break was not good. But she is trying the splint and hoping that it will heal. There was not a good pulse in the foot and it was cooler than the left foot but we are hoping she will not lose her leg. If the ankle/leg does not heal the leg will need to be removed or possible pins put in, and Deer do not do well with those procedures. Either way she is looking at extensive medical bills to help her heal and will need to stay monitered in a small area until her leg heals. Mickey needs your help and prayers.
  Our animals need your help and kindness. We are a No Kill rescue Donations have been down due to people losing their incomes, homes and basically they have worries of their own and do not have the funds to donate. We are seeking your help. We have many types of animals that we care for, dogs, cats, horses, goats, exotics, and livestock. We have approx 180 animals not including the poultry and the birds. We need whole corn, cracked corn, parrot feed, all stock feed that sheep can also eat, cat food, dog food and rabbit feed. 100% of all monies taken in go to care for the animals in our care and be used to purchase feed. Our supplies are low and the funding for the feed is needed now for the animals. Please help if you can, these animals need your help also. We have dedicated our lives to helping animals and we love all of our animals no matter what their health or attitude is. We just want to take care of them and see that they get what they need, many animals come to us neglected, injured, or just because of age. Older or unadoptable animals will live out their lives with us, we will not put them thru the stress of being moved from home to home. They will remain here, have a permanent home and be loved. We are very grateful for any assistance that you can give to our animals. We can also supply you with a tax receipt if needed. In closing, thank you in advance for caring enough to read our request and God Bless. Share Tweet
