Thank You From The Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue!
The following is a thank you from the Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue.
Those of you who know me know that I am rarely at a lack for words. I’ve got a big yap. The overwhelming response to my request to raise $20,000. for the rescue however, has left me pretty much speechless. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and a profound sense of well-being for the animals in my care. I send a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you who helped to make this happen.
This has been a good year at Save Your Ass. Mostly happy endings, with a few not so happy, but that is to be expected. I have averaged 35 adoptions every year the rescue has been in operation. One year it was 32, last year it was 37, and this year I am at 39 adoptions with two adoptions in the works!!
I am amazed and grateful for the many people interested in giving loving, caring homes to these animals. I’ve had a lot of owner surrenders this year. We are all getting older and our donkeys live for a long time. Both are good things! Caring for large animals in the winter months especially, can be difficult. I am glad that our adoption contract states that animals must come back here if they can no longer be kept for any reason. I am happy to provide that safety net for the animals and their caregivers.
Every year I do this I meet more and more wonderful, compassionate, committed people. I have made some great new friends via the long ears this year and am grateful for that as well.
Thank you very, very much on behalf of all of us at Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue for continuing to make what we do possible. We could not do it without you.
I wish each and every one of you a peace filled, happy and healthy New Year.
