A NOTE FROM BELLA VISTA FARMS

Bella Vista Farms Animal Sanctuary is located 14 miles west of Cottonwood

and 6 miles from Igo, on Lower Gas Point Road. The farm originated in 

Bella Vista in 1989, thus the name Bella Vista Farms. In 1997, the farm 

moved, growing from 4 to 45 acres. In 2000 we became a licensed animal 

sanctuary and also became licensed with the USDA. Bella Vista Farms is a 

501(c)(3).

 

Several hundred abused, abandoned, orphaned and unwanted animals call 

Bella Vista Farms home. Each has a name and each has a story.

I was a nurse for 25 years and Bob was a business owner. I do much of the 

medical care and Bob tends to many of the responsibilities of keeping the 

farm flowing. 

 

For me, days include feeding, brushing, bathing, and cleaning cages and 

pens for the many animals on the farm. These include pigs, horses, donkeys, 

ponies, bunnies, parrots, llamas, goats, dogs and cats. Medical challenges 

include care of blind, deaf, diabetics, heart disorders, injuries, and 

malnourished animals.

 

For Bob, his day starts early, getting hay, mending fences, building shelters 

and seeing to it that the farm runs smoothly. Oh yeah, and he also does ALL 

of the cooking!

 

On a daily basis the animals consume 50 pounds of dry dog food, 40 pounds 

of dry cat food, 15 cans of dog food, 12 bales of hay and a large variety of 

medications and medical supplies. 

 

Bella Vista Farms is not an adoption center. When animals arrive, the farm 

becomes their home forever. So…until next month – fun topics to follow.
