Maranatha Farm group
Maranatha Farm is a group of caring individuals providing compassionate care of injured and mistreated animals. Consisting of two small farms in Ridgeland, SC they focus on the rehabilitation and care of animals from horses to hamsters.
A special program the Farm offers caught our attention – Seniors for Seniors, matching senior people wanting companionship with a senior or adult pet needing a home. After learning this, we decided Maranatha Farm was our choice. In our quest to improve the lives of homeless, abused and abandoned animals, The Bedminster Group selects an animal welfare organization each month to donate a portion of our company proceeds, and Maranatha Farm Animal Rescue fit the bill for the month of May.
Man’s Best Friends are a mainstay at Maranatha and always on their website, www.maranathafarm.org, you can view photos of pooches in need of fostering and adoption. The facility is limited regarding its intake of cats and kittens, so foster families are always welcome.
In spring 2011, Maranatha opened their Cathouse – the porch is still waiting to be screened, but for now, the felines are finding places to play and hide.
The staff at Maranatha does not take salaries and as a 501©(3) organization, receives no public assistance but relies on donations from generous and caring individuals.
Every donation is used to help restore health to homeless animals. Maranatha makes donating an enjoyable and fulfilling experience, enabling you to choose how your donation dollars are spent. For example, you can donate toward veterinary services such as, $25 for a heartworm test for dogs or $50 for feline neuter surgery. Other areas for donation are vaccines, medications and supplies. It’s a veterinary vending machine of donation options.
The Bedminster Group’s Allie Weber, a beautiful foxhound, was found abandoned and limping due to a fractured leg, in Guiton, SC. She was taken to Maranatha Farm by a Good Samaritan and had the great fortune of being nursed back to health at Maranatha and adopted in December 2010 by a very special family in Bluffton who sometimes find it hard keeping up with her pace!
