Norman and Ferdy

Norman and Ferdy, seen here, are two recent temporary additions to the sanctuary flock. Norman, featured on the left, with Ferdy to the right, have enjoyed their time at the sanctuary and love to graze and nuzzle one another. Both will soon be living at another rescue site and we are glad to have the opportunity to work with other concerned rescue groups and sanctuaries in assisting all animals in need. It has been a great joy to spend time with Norman and Ferdy!

CSU Freshmen Visit the Sanctuary

The Sanctuary had a great visit from CSU freshmen students on Saturday! They rolled into the drive in a retired greyhound bus, my what the neighbors must think! This was a very productive group of students. They had a good time hanging out with Jeb, the 26 year old mule, Adam and Dangles, the two pot bellied pigs, Brick and Keya, our 10 year old pups, and helping to build dog houses!

Speaking Out Against Brutality

It is often difficult to imagine that humane policies towards animals are not enforced. I have recently viewed some of the horrific photographs of dogs in China being strangled, beaten, and mutiliated due to an outbreak of rabies in humans. Currently, there are no exisiting laws in China that dictate that individuals vaccinate companion animals. It is sorrowful to view these beautiful creatures being so cruelly tortured and I urge individuals to contact the Chinese Embassy and voice your concern for the way in which these dogs are being treated. While it sometimes feels that we do everything we can to make a difference in the lives of animals in our own country, we must speak out for those worldwide, as well. Leaving a polite and brief message at the Embassy can make a world of difference! The Chinese Embassy can be reached by calling {202} 328-2500, {202} 328-2501, or {202} 328-2502. Thank you for speaking out for these animals!

"Settling In"

We would like to thank all of the many volunteers and individuals who have donated their time and efforts in order to make the transition to the new site a success! Check out the photographs of our sanctuary animals grazing, enjoying the landscape and settling in to their new home. Feel free to come out and visit the new site and spend time with some of our beloved animal friends!
