AURORA, Mo.-- Melissa Sartin owns the CARE Farm Sanctuary in Aurora. She says she cares for more than seventy-five animals that range from goats to cows.
She says she hopes to open the sanctuary to the public in fall 2019. She wants to people that these animals have emotions and feelings.
Sartin also hopes to open a therapy program for kids. She says whether you are brushing, riding or just loving the animals, horses bring out the best in people.
And while Sartin would be more than happy to help every animal in need, the shelter is already at full capacity. She says she will start taking in animals again once their barn is built.
But she says there are opportunities to adopt horses and pot belly pigs.
