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.

Pregnant Cat Abandoned by Her Owners!

Vera had a family that moved away and decided to leave her for no apparent reason. To make matters worse, she was extremely pregnant. So this pregnant girl was left all alone when she needed her family most.

A good Samaritan stepped in and reached out for us to take in this soon to be momma. We took Vera immediately and within 3 days she had her babies.

Vera and her kittens will be spending the next several months being fostered by a staff member as they grow strong and healthy.

Will you help us take care of Vera and her kittens? Every dollar will go straight to their medical and basic needs.

Cheryl's New Opportunity at Finding a Family!

Cheryl is one of our sanctuary dogs that has been in limbo for quite some time. She sat in a shelter for several months before coming to the sanctuary.

Since arriving at the sanctuary we have had difficulty placing her into a home due to a few behavioral issues. We have the chance to send Cheryl to a board and train facility where they will train her, find her a home, and provide lifelong support.

For Cheryl to take this opportunity, we need to raise $5,000 for her boarding and training.

Will you help Cheryl get the training she needs to get adopted?
