One Blackfoot group is starting an animal sanctuary for rescued farm animals.
Funny Farm Animal Sanctuary currently has four pigs, 16 cats, six dogs, two roosters, a sheep and a goat. Its employees are passionate about saving animals, but their work comes with a price. There are only two animal sanctuaries in the state, so Funny Farm needs to expand to meet a growing need.
Marissa Pain, a member of the Funny Farm Animal Sanctuary, says volunteering could be an educational experience. “This is a great project for our community. I think it’s going to benefit the community because it’s educational. They can meet the animals, they can be a part of something that’s helping the animals,” Pain said.
