Rainbows End-Forever Home

About ten years ago Michael and I bought a piece of land in Saint Lucia in the West Indies. We built a house and a small stable with the intent of looking after the few animals we had acquired. Most of these were rescued; horses, dogs, and cats.  The trouble was the word got out in the world of animals and before we knew it our home had become a sanctuary. It was as if the critters we had already were announcing to the entire island that Rainbows End was a safe and happy place to be.

From that moment on we looked after these furry friends by funding from Michael’s one-man marketing agency.

That was until the Pandemic

Other funding had been available through a program we ran with one of the wellness hotels called the ‘Equine Journey’ Designed to help people with issues of low self-esteem, lacking confidence, and depression, it became highly successful. The horses began to make a significant contribution to their keep. Since the island economy is entirely dependent on the UK and North American tourist markets, by March 2020, both sources of income had vanished.

We had never intended Rainbows End as a non-profit and we do not wish it to be a charity either.

Given time, we feel that we can achieve our main goals which are:

  • To survive the coming few months bridging the gap between the beginning of recovery and “business as usual.”
  • Being able to get some volunteer help now we seem to be getting over the pandemic and/or raising sufficient funds to pay someone to assist.
  • Creating a large enough fund to allow expansion for more rescues.

EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

We have been aware for many years that living as we do on a small island, being in this position with the animals is very different to if we were living in the UK or the United States.

If we got to a stage where either financially or physically, we couldn’t carry on, there would almost certainly be opportunities to find new homes for the horses in particular and some of the dogs.

That would not be the case here on a small Caribbean Island.  In reality, the clock is ticking.
