Christopher’s mother has always been passionate about animals, and she passed this passion on to her son, who grew up to be quite the animal lover himself. For a long time, he’s wanted to put his passion to use and help animals in a more established way. Eventually, he created the Little Bear Sanctuary. Unfortunately, Christopher’s mother never got to enjoy her son’s work because she passed away a few months before the sanctuary opened. However, nobody doubts that she must be very proud of him.
The sanctuary’s work
Little Bear Sanctuary houses quite the menagerie, including but not limited to goats, cows, sheep, and tortoise. Most of the sanctuary’s tenents, however, are pigs, namely Willy, who was the very first animal to be brought to the place. Willy and most of his animal friends at the sanctuary were saved from the meat industry. After Christopher saved them, they were given a second chance and a peaceful life. Some of them might still be post-traumatic, but otherwise healthy and well taken care of.
Keeping the place going
For now, Little Bear doesn’t generate its own income, but it is located on a 30-acre land, which gives the creatures more than enough room to roam. In order to keep the place going strong and able to take in new inhabitants, Christopher started a GoFundMe campaign. So far, the campaign has raised $15,000 of its total $55,000 goal, but we’re sure it will gather the whole sum pretty soon.
