Update 1/5/15 – GREAT NEWS to start the new year. The auction of the property has been postponed until April 6th. That means we have more time to network and fund-raise to save this amazing local resource. Please help us share this story and connect with others who can help!

IHWN is a place of peace and natural sanctuary, offering specialized care to some very special animals. It is the only place of its kind in Central Florida. The sanctuary sits on a leased property, and unfortunately the owners became ill and the property is being foreclosed. Fundrasing created some assistance, but the property was scheduled for auction on January 7th. We learned on January 5th that the sale has been postponed until April 6th, and we have until then to raise the funds to purchase the property.. If you can help, please step up with us and make a difference. Donations are needed, but also please share in your spheres of influence and empower others to be part of the network of love that is weaving together to save this local resource.
What can YOU do? You can share your positive energy, share information about this story with others, share the fundraising site, make a donation if you can, help advocate and spread the word. Ask all of your facebook connections, family, friends, spiritual/faith/non-faith community members, colleagues, and other spheres of influence to do the same. Somewhere out there is someone who is able and interested in saving this refuge, and we have until April 6th, when the property will be auctioned, to make that connection. Please advocate, and stay positive – there are still many ways that this can work out, especially if we use our voices wherever possible to tell the story.
