PHOTOS: Live and Let Live Farm gets a refresher from United Way Day of Caring

  • Brittany Clark, of Boscawen, helps paint one of several fences used to hold dozens of rescued horses as Katie, who has been on the farm for 32 years, has no chewing teeth and lost her eye sight a few years ago, hangs out near her barn. Close to 100 volunteers were at Live and Let Live Farm, a non-profit, rehabilitation rescue and sanctuary for animals in Chichester, on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, for the Granite United Way Day of Caring. Over 400 volunteers were expected to work throughout Merrimack County helping area nonprofits. "It's huge for us," said Teresa Paradis, director and founder at the animal rescue. "We wouldn't get most of it done," she continued. Paradis said that daily operations alone take up a large part of the time on the farm and there is always a need for volunteers for all type of work, from working with the animals to construction and general care around the farm. The farm is open for tours on Sundays to learn about the mission and the animals that are rescued.<br/><br/>(JOHN TULLY / Monitor staff)
