Animal Rescue50 Prilipu Rd, Livingston, NY 12534
In the stunning countryside just 6 minutes outside of Hudson, a world of kindness awaits in the form of Tomorrow Tomorrow Animal Rescue.
Michael Bucci is a handsome 70-year-old with an air of calm wisdom. He oversees more than 150 acres of land, upon which live and thrive 22 horses, 5 goats, 20 cats, 3 dogs, and sweet lambs wearing wooly sweaters in the cold.
Every Tuesday morning, a van pulls up from the Hudson City School with autistic and developmentally challenged kids. They ride the horses, pet them, talk to them, and the horses nuzzle and kiss them in return. Michael and Sarah tell the story of how one autistic young man, who had never spoken a complete sentence before, began to speak in full sentences as he talked about the horses to his parents.
Michael and Sarah are full of hopes and dreams. Sarah, in addition to being barn manager, is also an artist. She dreams of incorporating art and animal rescue on the property. She photographs the land and paints horses in her studio, and welcomes other artists and photographers to do the same. Michael is considering the idea of repairing cars that have been donated so single moms may use them.
Tomorrow Tomorrow Animal Rescue could use a crew of young volunteers to help exercise and groom the horses and help out at feeding time (6 AM and 6 PM). What an incredible opportunity for a child to bond with the animals while learning to care for them! Contributions of food and medicine would also be appreciated.
Please call Michael or Sarah at 518-929-6092 if you’d like to volunteer. They will greet you with charm and happily put you on the work schedule.
