URGENT!  Green Shepherd Project

Our Near Eastside neighborhood partners with the Green Shepherd Project in the Willard Park neighborhood have had two of their sheep attacked this weekend.  They’ve lost Lily and Twisty is in stable condition at the Purdue Large Breed Animal Hospital.  They are facing some large costs for the care and addition of another sheep.  From their Facebook page:

“The estimate at Purdue is $500-$800. A new friend for Twisty, $150.”

More updates and pictures can be found on their Facebook page linked above.  Please feel free to send them a note of encouragement!

If you would like to donate to help alleviate some of these costs for this wonderful project, please make checks payable to:

Willard Park HCW

341 N Hamilton Ave, Indianapolis IN 46201.

“Sheep” in memo line please.

Willard Park of Holy Cross-Westminster Civic Alliance is a 501(c)(3), so all donations toward the Green Shepherd Project are tax deductible.
