Laura Pople, founder of Seer Farms Inc., calls her organization a “people-centered animal sanctuary.” It provides care, resources, and support for pet-owning families who need help. This “safety net” gives families an alternative to animal shelters when facing significant crises like health issues, financial turmoil, domestic violence, natural disasters, extended military service, etc. Seer Farms helps families so they have the time and space to recreate safety and stability for themselves and their pets.
Since 2006, Pople (who is also president of Jersey Pride) and volunteers have provided a safe haven for more than 2,000 animals whose families have faced major life crises. After Superstorm Sandy, Seer Farms helped 320 pets from the Jersey Shore. Seer Farms’ most important goal is to reunite the families with their animal companions once the crisis has passed. To date, 95 percent of dogs placed at Seer Farms have been reunited with their owners, and 85 percent of cats have been reunited. Unfortunately, there are circumstances wherein a family is unable to reunite with their pets, and these animals need to be placed in new, loving homes.
