Volunteer Spotlight: Jane Thrall

Jun 21, 2018
When I initially moved to the White Rock area I was newly retired and looking for a way to contribute to the community and make connections. SALIs farm was the perfect fit for me; the volunteers and organizers are friendly and open, the animals offer unconditional love, and the opportunity to help at risk children is very rewarding.

Creature Feature: Elvis

Jun 18, 2018
If a farm can have a Maître D, Elvis is undoubtedly the man, (er, cat) for the job. One who oversees all the going’s on while all the while eluding major tasks but assuming full responsibility. Elvis was the first SALI member to greet me on his own accord. He sauntered up in his perfectly tailored black and white tuxedo, looked in my eyes, rubbed my shins and in that moment knew I would be welcomed into the herd.

Creature Feature: Henrietta

Perhaps more of a beautiful wallflower than an attention sponge, Henrietta may not garner as much in-your-face attention as some of the other members of the SALI herd but that doesn’t mean she captures fewer hearts. Forever the “sister of the patient," she graciously lets Louise bask in the spotlight but there’s no question who runs the roost. In fact, in many origins, the name Henrietta means “Ruler of the Home." A delightful discovery that fits perfectly - just one of the many coincidental (or not) hidden gems behind the stories of our rescue animals.

Volunteer Spotlight: Shawn Soucy

Apr 07, 2018
You'd think Shawn had joined us at the very beginning considering how much he's contributed. In such a short time, he's made a difference in the lives of all our animals and many at-risk children. Along the way, he's created, filmed, built, repaired, drummed, injured himself many times, and has become such a valued member of our farm family. "There’s a rewarding energy that comes to us when we volunteer without expectation. I’m sure ALL the volunteers feel it."
