We have returned to volunteering at SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary! As you can see, we’re very excited about this. So we thought we would share some photos of our first day back with our animal friends.

You can come out and meet them yourselves on May 18th (this Sunday) from noon to 4 pm. Admission fee is $10, kids 5 and under are free. Tour the farm, hang out with the animals and hear their stories, and tasty vegan food will be sold by Shimmy Shack.

Come visit SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary on August 11th!

Many activities to keep yourself and the kids entertained while you explore an animal sanctuary in action! Meet the animal residents as well.

It is always a good time and you’ll be helping raise money to continue rescuing animals in need!

As Easter approaches this is a friendly reminder to please refrain from getting your child/children any live chicks/ducks/bunnies. Sure they’re tiny and cute and do adorable things, but they grow quickly. Suddenly, your adorable baby chick is on his way to becoming a full grown rooster. Crowing at the crack of dawn to signal a new day has arrived. Obviously this can become a problem at lightening speed for a variety of reasons (angry neighbors and city violations being just a small sample) and you’re left trying to find a new home for him frantically. Most people are not going to lend a hand and take on a rooster or any other poultry for that matter. And let’s face it, farm animal sanctuaries are few and far between. (Not to mention usually full from this very situation!)

Chickens, ducks, and bunnies all poop a LOT. They’re basically feces machine guns. If you think picking up after Fido and Ms. Kitty gets exhausting, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

Bunnies have a life span of approximately 10 years. You should consider it like adopting a dog. They also need to be spayed or neutered to prevent overpopulation and marking problems.

Now I know the kids promised they’d take care of them but they also promised to stop picking their nose and THAT hasn’t stopped yet either. You should pretty much count on all the responsibilities falling back on you. Let’s face it, kids have short attention spans. They’re kids, it’s not their fault.

Be the responsible party and don’t bring a live animal home for Easter. (Unless you’ve thoroughly researched said animal and feel they would make a great addition to your family.) Stick to stuffed bunny toys and candy this Easter. It saves lives.

These roosters are lucky enough to live out the rest of their lives at SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary.
