Creative Acres is now a part of Giving First. To make credit card donations please go to givingfirst.org type in Creative Acres and you will see the rest. We do prefer donations go directly to us by check. But if this makes it easier for you, or you can donate more or more often this way please do, or do both.
The reason we ask to pay us directly is that we get the funding immediately.
REMEMBER, you can also donate by phone credit card, or bill pay. Call us for the other ways to donate or help.

Creative Acres is a quality of life, no-kill
free-roam animal sanctuary. We take in animals despite their
medical conditions. We do this on a case by case basis.
Unlike other shelters, we will not promise to do our best
by taking in every animal for evaluation only to deem it
unadoptable and destroy it.
We pride ourselves on the fact that when
we do accept an animal we are dedicated to providing a lifetime
commitment. For example, when an animal comes to us considered
unadoptable at other shelters, for reasons such as behavior,
we will have the compassion to take the time to train the
animal. If an animal comes to us in poor medical condition,
we will put forth the cost and use the resources of our
knowledge to rehabilitate the animal whatever time is required
whether it be a few hours or a few years. When an animal
has made a full recovery and would be comfortable being
adopted rather than remaining at the sanctuary, we will
make the effort to find them a loving home. This website
is important not just to learn about
us but how
you can make a difference when you donate money. You
will be able to determine whether your money is going to
a good shelter
or a bad shelter.
Creative Acres is needing your help to help our over 400 animals of many species here. As you know the drought has effected the feed market, especially hay. The prices are extremely high, tripled in fact. Cost of a hay to feed the horses, goats, sheep, etc. approximately $12.000 to $15,000 per semi truck load.
Creative Acres is also in need of other feeds to get through winter, like 400 bags of hen scratch @ @13.00 each , 600 bags of Emu food @ $16.00 each, Dog andCat food and litter, bird foods from Parrot to Parakeets Guinea pig, sugarglider, and all the other species we have here…These feed are going up weekly.
Being a no-kill free roam we must stock up on our medications, specialty foods and other needs for the winter…We also need construction and building supplies before the winter.. We need barn doors and chicken house doors repaired or rebuilt. A few areas of minor construction were wood or shingles are missing.
We have always made with your help... THANKS!!!!!! from the thousands of lives you have helped and will.
