Learning Caring at SALI's Farm

Learning caring at SALI’s Farm.

In one sentence, SALI is a charitable organization that takes children who have had difficult or abusive pasts, and animals who have the same, and puts them together in mutual therapy. They help each other heal by playing with and caring for one another (SALI’s Farm Program). SALI also takes in pets and temporarily re-homes them so victims of domestic violence can escape abusive relationships and move into transition homes and shelters, where they can’t bring their pets along (Guardian Program).

One of SALI’s goals right now is to acquire funding to buy a piece of land on which to build its own dedicated Farm where kids and animals can spend time together. Currently SALI does its work on a farm generously lent for the purpose. The star of the Farm program is a horse called Badger, who was abused when he was young and developed an incurable deformity (navicular) which put him on the fast track to an unfortunate end. SALI rescued him at the last moment, and Badger now rescues kids to repay the favour.

Donations to SALI, and donations to help with upkeep for Badger, can be made at Canada Helps by clicking here.
