Precious Life Animal Sanctuary

A safe home for animals who have suffered from cruelty and neglect

Record Snowfall at Precious Life Animal Sanctuary

On Thursday afternoon, February 7, snow began to fall and continued for days until it piled up close to 3 feet with 4-foot drifts everywhere. Every door opening to the house and barn had 5-foot drifts which prevented opening any of the doors. This is the worst snowstorm since we acquired the PLAS property 20 years ago. We also had two power outages and a downed phone line.

Until one tries to walk a few feet in snow this deep, it is hard to imagine the difficulty and energy it takes and the hardship on all the animals as well as the two founders. We were fortunate to have one incredible volunteer who agreed to stay in our cabin and helped shovel snow day after day during the storms. Without his assistance, many of our beloved animals would have perished.
