Hi All.
I wanted to share a wonderful moment with you all. This past summer I was contacted by Supreme Master Television who were interested in the sanctuary and our residents. Several members from Supreme Master Television came to the sanctuary to see what we do here. They did some filming and Story Book Farm aired in a two part mini series in the fall. We were all grateful for the opportunity for the media to bring attention to who we are and what we do and I personally appreciated the media coverage to further our cause. I have to tell you though, I was shocked when TV rep Fan sent me an email that Supreme Master Ching Hai was donating $10,000.00 to our cause and to help the animals in our care. OMG!! Talk about shock and AWE! I was speechless, I stared at the email for a bit...before the tears came. Members from Supreme Master Television arrived here on December 31st with many presents and a cheque. WOW! They helped us so much!!!! This year, they answered my prayers for help and I thank them very much. I know my hard working team members utter the same words.....Thank you Supreme Master Ching Hai

Happy Holidays

Good afternoon! Here we are a week before Christmas! The year went by so fast at the sanctuary. This year was filled by joy, heartbreak, challenges and victories. We welcomed new residents Buddy, Remelle (Remi) and Chico. The boys are settling in with new friends, surroundings, lots of good food and loving humans all around. Thanks to the drive and determination of Leonard and Sherri and a hardy group of volunteers, the new barn was built just in the nick of time. We lost Skinny. Basil misses her and so do we. Nan required surgery - so lots of worry - but she was a star and is doing well.

As 2010 closes, we thank you so much for keeping the monkeys in your heart.

Happy holidays to you and yours,

More new residents!

Meet the new lemurs!!!!!!! That's Buddy with his blankets, and Ramelle (aka Remi)

A large welcome to 2 small new arrivals. Ramelle (aka Remi) and Buddy are a couple of little ring-tailed lemurs that come to us all the way from British Columbia. They are tiny; although aged 5 and 7, they weighed in at about 4.5 pounds. They make our other ring-tails look like giants. They are delighted with their new home, although all the space is just a little daunting! But they have great appetites, and are curious about everything. Remi is becoming quite the leaper and bounder, and Buddy wraps himself in blankets and looks shy and coy.
I am looking forward to getting to know them much better and making some small contribution towards their futures!
