We've been approached in a request that our Sanctuary take two trumpeter swans into our care. And we are more than willing to help! One problem: we don't have the gear to catch (or experience in catching) swans. We're reaching out to any wildlife rehab group, wildlife officers or animal rescue groups or shelters for assistance. Please contact us asap. We would like to shelter the swans as soon as possible.
Be careful taking in swanns there are permitting issues

These two babies with matching collars, showed up at the sanctuary. They have been here several days and all hours of the night and early morning, trying to get into our home and succeeded!!
Do they look familiar? Hoping someone is missing them.....
Very young female calico and male orange & white tabby. EXTREMELY sweet, please let us know where they belong!

Season's Greetings from the Sanctuary!
The holiday season is upon us. After a recent snowfall, a glance toward our pasture would find Oscar, our proud, friendly giant, standing so nobly in the snow.
These are the days when those television commercials of Clydesdales pulling a wagon will be appearing during sporting events or holiday specials. You might wonder how a Clydesdale would find a home at a sanctuary. What brought Oscar to us? We were able to acquire him before he was to be sent to auction. You see, Oscar was considered "too lazy" to be the lead horse on a team. Instead he found a home with us. We don't find him to be lazy. He is, in fact, noble. His presence in our pasture is strong. He wasn't meant to pull a wagon but to lift spirits. So Season's Greetings from Oscar! Seeing him run freely through the snow is a wonderful winter vision.

Santa Visits The Sanctuary!
November 24, 2018
A special day with our special visitor. We watched a certain rambunctious calf romp and play with the jolly man in the red suit. While we prepare our Sanctuary for winter's snowy chills, we took a little time to enjoy the start of the holiday season.
