Since Lee resides on the property, we currently do not allow visitors or volunteers. But we are in the process of expanding to our larger property to be able to rescue more animals. Once we are settled and that is up and running, our vision is to have monthly tours for visitors, and we hope to offer volunteer opportunities. We don’t have an exact timeline for this, but Lee will be sharing more as this project develops.
Lee does have a few videos on Facebook that illustrate the history of The Asher House. He categorizes the videos together, and one is called "I want your life:" https://fb.watch/83AXD7e9px/, and another is called “How we started the Sanctuary:" https://www.facebook.com/TheAsherHouse/videos/3289423571293100 Basically, after traveling the country to promote dog adoption and meeting with various shelters and rescues, Lee applied for his 501c3 nonprofit, which was approved in late 2020. Because of his large social media platform, the nonprofit received a lot of exposure, and for this Lee is very grateful. After his pit bull Stella passed away, he needed a break from being on the road and wanted to fulfill his lifelong dream of planting roots and founding a sanctuary. He was able to find a large parcel of property in Oregon and it was a perfect place to make his vision a reality.
Once in Oregon, Lee continued to focus on saving animals and partnering with other shelters and rescues. We have now expanded to other animals like llamas, horses, pigs, goats, alpacas and even cows. He works really hard to physically care for the animals and to manage the non-profit, he but does have a small team to assist. I know you didn’t ask, but people often wonder how he sustains himself financially, and it is primarily through paid sponsorships and his CBD oil. Here is a video that explains that in a little more depth: https://youtu.be/F_a-TsLabbA
Best Friends Animal Society has a wonderful article that we have shared with many people: https://resources.bestfriends.org/article/how-start-animal-sanctuary Pet Finder also has some great resources on how to start a rescue, shelter or other similar nonprofit: https://www.petfinder.com/animal-shelters-and-rescues/starting-a-pet-adoption-organization/ And if you can, we suggest that you contact a sanctuary or rescue organization near your home and ask if you can volunteer. This will give you a behind the scenes look at what happens daily, the costs involved, the workforce you may need, how fostering works, and much more.
