Hello everyone! We hope this blog finds you happy, safe and healthy during this crazy time.
We have been incredibly busy at the Sanctuary! Last month one of our long term supporters, Maria, gave us a donation that enabled us to finally replace the chicken and rabbit barns that were destroyed by hurricane Michael. We are so incredibly grateful for her kindness and generosity to us. Melissa at Home Depot helped us get the shelters we so desperately needed, she and her team were so helpful and kind, they helped us load and gave us awesome suggestions on how to structure the new barns. We spent the last two weeks of quarantine putting together the buildings, and getting the area ready for the pens to be built. Saturday we spent the day with out friends and volunteers; Joe, Jerry, Johnny, Vincent and Chris, who helped us with the last few pieces and began putting together the structure for the outdoor portion of the pens. It's starting to look amazing! Even the bunny area we had before wasn't so well designed. We are so excited to get them into their new beautiful pen, and out of the cages they've had to occupy since the hurricane.
It was an amazing day. We had so much fun spending time with everyone who came out to help. Joe and Jerry came out to help build the framework for the rabbit pen, and got to see their little old Stoney man. It was a lovely reunion. Stoney showed them his new lady partner Tico (the sweet young Sun conure), he seemed very proud to show her off to his former family!
