The Organic Pet Animal Sanctuary & Education Foundation
At TOPASEF our goal is to help people and animals who need hope the most.
We believe by raising public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing today’s society;
through education I believe that we can make a difference .
Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.
We Create & Provide Solutions For Social Good
Actions Make A Difference - Giving Back To Society
The Organic Pet Animal Sanctuary (TOPASEF) is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges; Suicide, Homelessness, Domestic Violence, The Disabled, Drug Abuse, Troubled Veterans, Youth,
Seniors and The Single Parent Family;
Let us not forget to mention the furry ones with no voice:
Animal abuse, abandonment, neglect and slaughter; and lastly but not least,
The destruction of The American Spirit of Freedom:
The Wild Mustang...
I've been told many times that what the vision that I have for this program is:
"You'll never be able to do it"
"It will cost too much"
Those words tell me that it is exactly what I should be doing and exactly what is needed.
A wise person once said, "If we don't stand for something, we will fall for anything!"*
*see credit below
If these are the best excuses they have, I have to ask, why it hasn't been done to this level before?
To me these are lame excuses, because we build billion dollar buildings, but who do those buildings help?
Government programs are created and run mainly by people who have never struggled and do not understand the true costs and realistic needs of the common man, woman or child.
There is a very big disconnect between what is needed and what is available.
The programs available for mental health today are just filled with drugs and impersonal cookie cutter protocols to mask the real reasons why we hurt and how to get back out of that black hole we can sometimes end up in where there seems to be no way out.
I believe that there is a way to get out of it; Through it, over it and under it. There is always a way where there seems to be no way!
If you can see what I see, please join me in creating hope and a solution to advocate and empower people to once again live each day to it's fullest, not to just exist each day at the minimum.

One Step at a Time
Homeless Outreach is something that is truly important to us. Most people that are on the streets are just looking for their own safe warm, dry place that is affordable in order to rejoin society. We'd like to work with this goal in mind but in a practical way that gives people back their dignity!
***This program is in development at this time.
Organic Food Market & Donation Program
Feeding The Special Diet Community
At TOPASEF, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the ever growing issue of special diet needs . Food Donation Drop-Off is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are planning an organic garden to grow food year round with The Organic Pet Eco-Farm Sustainability Program ***This program is in development at this time.
THE RANSOM RANCH PROJECT
A Sanctuary for Horses and Humans
Saving Horses and Humans
Wild, Domestic and Rare Breeds
We are currently in process of our business plan and raising funds for a good piece of property that will meet our needs. Contact us for more information.
Suicide Awareness and Prevention
Music Heals The Soul
ROCK4LIFE is planned to help those that are struggling with suicide, whether it be families of survivors or those currently needing assistance to keep on keeping on. Due to the nation’s highest suicide rate for teens being right here in NE Ohio, each day that goes by we lose many lives that we might be able to turn around. It breaks my heart and I feel anxious every day that goes by that our program is not up and running as of today.
This program is near and dear to me, as I know the pain very well, having lost my baby brother Geo Rimes and a very close dear friend, Teddy Days to suicide.
We are inviting all of our friends in the music community to join us in this very worthy project!
It has been proven time and time again that music is therapeutic; healing in many ways and is effective. It’s also a very cool thing to combine music with animals.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument, perform, learn the process of how to make music & record; for those who wish not to play, to enjoy music as a healing tool to work through their hurts and needs.
Please partner with us to make this program a much needed reality.
Music is a beautiful way to help heal hurts, deal with the past; to cope with today and tomorrow.
FIRST FUNDRAISER FOR ROCK4LIFE is Tentatively set for MARCH 7, 2020 --
We need donations and volunteers to pull this off! Contact us for more information!
SAVE THE KITTIES
Feral Cat Colony Program
We're very dedicated to helping manage the feral population in our community. The Feral Kitty issue is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Education is key to help people to understand why this is the best and more humane solution to a wide-reaching issue.
We really need support! At this time we have vet bills over $1000.00. and we need to raise $ for food, shelter and litter, as well as straw.
Please join with us and together we can help decrease the feral population and provide a common sense approach! Thank you! Please donate today!
The Organic Pet Eco-Farm Sustainability Program
The Organic Pet Eco-Farm Sustainability Program is designed to be an experiment on running a sustainable organic farm program with organic foods, herbs, bedding, essentials to provide for the animals and people within the program.
We hope to use fully sustainable practices in regard to water, power, footing, pasture management, holistic and integrative medical practices, raising our own feeds, bedding, enrichment environments for the animals and humans on the farm as well as bio-fuel methods with our farm equipment.
We plan to include using Industrial Hemp in this program very labor intensive program.
(***Meant to be implemented in tandem with The Ransom Ranch Project and Organic Food Market Program.***)
