Polka Spot Fosters Rescue Llama. Bring your donations and come meet the Beekman Boys, Saturday January 29th from noon to 3 at the Beekman Mercantile on Main Street in Sharon Springs.
PolkaSpot came to Beekman Farm when she and her mother were adopted from a neighboring farm that was shutting down.
This is why when she heard the story about the Montana llama rescue mission, she HAD to get involved (She called her friends Angelina and Brad for advice)
Last week, 100 llamas were rescued from a bankrupt sanctuary in Montana and transported to the Northeast Llama Rescue in nearby Middleburgh NY. These llamas were near death from malnourishment and neglect. Evacuating the Montana ranch has become the largest animal rescue since Hurricane Katrina. There are still hundreds of animals that need to be saved.
The 100 llamas that arrived at the Northeast Llama Rescue are in dire need of your help. In order to survive long enough to be eligible for adoption, they will need intensive medical care and food supplies.
That’s why Polka Spot decided to do something. Today she volunteered to foster one of these llamas for the next year. His name is Alistair. Polka Spot will pay for his food, care, and medical expenses for the next year until he is healthy enough to be put up for adoption.
She likes to use her world-wide celebrity for a good cause.
Polka released a statement:
“Me llove me.
Me llove llamas.
Me hellp llamas.
You llove me.
You llove llamas.
You hellp llamas.”
It’s hard to argue with llama llogic.
Brent and Josh join Polka in encouraging you to save one of the Montana Rescue Llamas. For $500, you can foster a llama and provide for all its needs for the next year. You can do it yourself, or with some friends. You’ll also get to name your foster llama, and will receive its photo and microchip number.
If you’d like to come by and drop off a donation of any amount, both Brent and Josh will be at the Beekman 1802 Mercantile on Main Street in Sharon Springs from noon to 3pm on Saturday, January 29th. Please come by to say “hi,” and to drop off your donation.
