Mayor Vasquez and Dr. Arun Rustgi Make a Splash and Windsor Harvest Festival!

There's nothing like a good cause and a chilly day that will make you want to jump in a dunk tank!

Mayor Vasquez and Dr. Arun Rustgi DVM both of Windsor made a tremendous splash many times over to raise needed funding for Denkai Animal Sanctuary. Thanks to the dedication of Cindy and Shawn Winklepleck in putting this together Dunks for Denkai raised close to $700.00.

A great big hug to Dr. R and Mayor Vasquez!

Jack Needs a Home!

Jack is a precious little kitten who was dropped off at the adoption center with puss filled eyes due to a massive infection.

Our veterinarian was unable to save one of Jack's eyes, but was able to preserve the other. This kitten is so super sweet, an absolute love bug and needs a home to call his own.

A big thank you to Dr. Kidd of Platte Valley Veterinary Service for her continued care of Jack until we find him a home!

Please contact us at (970) 352-5330 to sponsor Jack or give him a home!

Moon Gets a Second Chance!

Moon is a precious 18 year old pony. He was living near Dixon, WY and though his owners were kind-hearted, they allowed his hooves to grow a bit too long over a period of years.

This type of growth can be deadly for horses and ponies. It can cause issues with their tendons, founder, or they can grow to the point in which the horse can no longer get up to walk.

Moon is lucky, his owners were kind enough to give him up willingly knowing that it was in his best interest. The community watched this little horse knowing he needed help, but did not know where to turn. Thanks to Christi Chapman and other local residents, Denkai was able to step in and help.

We need aid in covering Moon's care (dental work, hoof trimming, medication) and transport costs now totaling $500.00. Even a $10 contribution helps tremendously.
