St. Francis Farm, established by Last Chance Animal Rescue in 2013, is a sanctuary situated on 50 acres in Carlisle, SC. There are many circumstances that may call on us to provide a safe haven when a traditional home cannot meet an animal’s needs; whether medical or behavioral, we believe that every animal has a right to life. St. Francis Farm enables us to keep our lifelong commitment to those that we have rescued.

Sweet Blade has been through quite the ordeal!

Blade had a family that he lived with for 3 years, when he was hit by a car... His back two legs were SHATTERED! And, unfortunately, his owner did not have the money for his care. When he took him to the vet the only options the owner really had were to euthanize Blade or to surrender him to the vet in hopes that they could find a rescue for Blade. 

Luckily, the owner surrendered Blade through tears and the vet called the farm. Blade needed to see a specialist to work on his legs. After a lot of fundraising, we were able to get Blade to the specialist, only to find out that his kidneys were damaged in the accident as well and he was in no shape for surgery! We had to reach out to our amazing supporters again, who rallied behind Blade and we were able to raise the additional funds needed to see a different specialist for his kidneys.

Blade is such a fighter and kept pushing forward! His kidney functions drastically improved and he was able to get his surgery for his legs. He is currently going through physical therapy at the farm with our staff and is doing AMAZING!

Blade is full of fight and spirit and amazes us all every day. He still has a long road ahead of him with us at the farm. But we know one day we'll be able to find him the forever home he deserves!

Monthly sponsors will provide a steady stream of funds that ensures Blade can live happy and healthy at the farm. Funds will go directly to his care for food, medical treatments, safe housing, and the love and care of our wonderful staff.

Monthly sponsors will receive regular updates with pictures of how your consistent funds are helping Blade and the other animals here at the Farm.
