Help HPF Hitch a Ride!
HodgePodge Farm began in the heart of a little suburban girl and has grown into a full service rescue, rehabilitation, rehoming and sanctuary for animals of all kinds. HodgePodge's permanent residents include horses, mules, alpacas, sheep, pigs, dogs, and cats, but with every call or email that comes in, the resident list changes. Our goal is to save the lives of the voiceless and to step in and step up for those in need, as well as to provide education and cultivation of the human-animal bond.
The farm houses 19 permanent residents and we are prepared to take on animals in need at a moment's notice. Feed and veterinary funds are always top priority, as well as improvements to the farm to encourage quality of life for our residents. Things like misters for the summer heat, round pen panels to aide in sectioning off herd members as well as in training exercises, additional farm equipment like a tractor remain on the list for us. Having additional tools and equipment helps us better serve our residents and be able to take on and help more.
HodgePodge Farm & Rescue provides intervention, care and rehabilitation to animals in need and a voice for the voiceless, while also engaging the hearts and minds of our community to bring about an end to the neglect, abuse and homelessness of animals in need.
Our two largest expenses annually are feed and veterinary care. Most of the sanctuary residents have special needs that require year 'round medications, special diets and higher levels of care. Often we get animals in their worst condition and work hard to bring them back to health, which often requires extensive veterinary care, medications, surgical procedures, x-rays, special testing, etc. We're also working hard to put together an outreach team to take to schools and events around the metroplex to give people opportunities to meet the animals, hear their stories and educate the community. To do that we need additional resources (insurance policies, travel capable pens, etc.) which is primary objective for us going into 2023.
As a small, locally owned and operated, female and BIPOC lead organization, equity, diversity and inclusion is at the core of who and what HodgePodge Farm & Rescue is. We recognize the history of oppression that has resulted in ongoing disparities for many communities. Yet, we believe that through creating outreach and inclusion programs that we have the opportunity to create positive systemic change. We believe that nonprofits that prioritize engaging diverse perspectives and who make efforts to be inclusive have profound impacts on society and that we are uniquely prepared to fulfill our commitment to all communities.
The mission and vision we hold for enriching the lives of humans and animals alike, move us to directly challenge ourselves and to deconstruct frameworks of oppression while building opportunities for learning, change and accountability. We know:
This work is urgent, and we will always be learning. We will make mistakes and we will be accountable for those failures and the corrective action that needs to along with them. Our efforts will be tireless, and our work will never stop.
