Whackie and Quackie are beautiful Black Indian Runner Ducks- they have a straight posture and wherever they go they move as a perfect match!  They glow in the sun- their feathers sparkle as much as the water they love to splash in. Sponsoring them as a pair is $50 per month.

The Roach family is now sponsoring Whackie and Quackie in loving memory of Chloe and Starr. “You will both be greatly missed and always in our hearts."


Sebastien is a Sebastopol Goose! His feathers are a glorious cascade of curly feathers that dance in the breeze as he rushes to investigate everything and everyone! Sponsoring Sebastien is $30 per month.

Happy Birthday Mom! Love from Joanna and Sebastien!


​Jeannie is one of the calmest cats ever! She is not the most athletic cat making her home at the Sanctuary. In fact, any notion of exercise puts a look of “Not today, dear” on her sweet face! She loves to be brushed, and is never far away, looking at everything that goes on to see if there might be an opportunity for pets and cuddles.   She might hustle just a little bit for those! Sponsoring Jeanne is $35 per month.

Jeannie is being sponsored by a wonderful young person named Maria. Thank you for your kind heart!
