Fire Destroys Our Animal Sanctuary
We need your help. On December 19, 2019, a fire started at the house on animal sanctuary property in Greenville, FL. Our sanctuary is a 45-acre farm and home to 140 injured, disabled and un-adoptable animals in which Ayla's Acres No-Kill Animal Rescue cares for. We have two full-time property managers and animal caretakers, Nedra and Chuck, that lived in the house where the fire started. We lost 11 animals in the fire, three animals are still missing. Chuck and Nedra suffered minor injuries. The house was destroyed.
