The sanctuary has 153 acres in which several electric vehicles are used for transportation around the large facility. "Living Free relies heavily on its four and eight passenger vehicles to provide transportation for seniors and handicapped visitors, who would otherwise miss out on the exceptional tours of our rescue campus," says Helgren. "Electric vehicles reduce Living Free's fuel and vehicle expenses, while helping the environment by lessening its carbon footprint. With the help of U.S. Battery Manufacturing, Living Free is up and running at full power with its vehicles for many years to come.”
U.S. Battery donated its US2200 golf car batteries to help Living Free continue its day-to-day operations. Along with two tour vehicles, the organization also has others that are used for various routine chores and maintenance throughout the facility.
"Our donation of batteries for Living Free's fleet of electric vehicles, is only a small token of appreciation for the sanctuary's hard work and dedication to providing a humane solution to dog and cat overpopulation,"
The Living Free Animal Sanctuary was founded in 1980 by Emily Jo Beard, who purchased the property, dedicated her life to orphaned cats and dogs, and educates people to respect and value animals.
