Since the attack last month, a number of people have reached out to the Upright Alpaca farm owners in many ways.
The farm owners came home to find 13 of their 15 alpacas mauled to death.
It's suspected that a neighbor's dogs got loose and attacked the alpacas. The dogs are now in the custody of animal control.
Since the attack, help has come from as far away as Australia and Italy.
They were even part of NBC 12's Acts of Kindness segment when one Mechanicsville couple, who were so moved by the tragedy nominated them.
The cash will go towards medical expenses and to rebuilding the herd.
If you would like to help out, Thursday is a great opportunity to do so. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., 20% of Chick-Fil-A sales in Short Pump will go towards the farm. All you have to do is mention "Spirit Night." Children will have the chance to meet two alpacas tonight at the Chick-Fil-A.
We'll continue to keep you updated on how this farm does in this ongoing rebuilding process.
