Sanctuary grounds were still wet and muddy mid-week. Erosion, flooding and mud flows caused roughly $150,000 in damage, Gigi Theberge, the sanctuary’s Communications Director, said. Surface-level repair projects were nearly complete Wednesday, but long-term solutions to flooding on the property will take more time and money.

The 93-acre animal rescue, sanctuary and educational facility is “actively fundraising” to install underground pipes, drainage and culverts, and to entirely regrade sections of the property, among other projects.
