||I thought I had this filled out yrs ago :o/ But in answer to the question, I am Living the life of "Be Careful What You Ask For" ... When asked when I was little, "what are you going to be when you grow up?", I answered that I was going to run an animal sanctuary for orphan animals, I would know vets to fix them, & I would groom them to help find them loving homes. & those that couldn't find a new home of their own could stay with me. Well, unintentionally I got what I asked for & been a sanctuary to a variety of orphans for over 22 years, with the property my parents built to retire in, but Dad passed away 6 weeks prior to retirement. I moved up here "Temporarilly", over 22 yrs ago. With the help of my retired mom & my sister, we have cared for & relocated over 200 orphans in the past 30 yrs. Shame I never thought to include in that answer that I would have a well-to-do husband, to help with this endeavor :o} Too late now ;o)
By the way, I have been a huge supporter of Halo Pets, Way Before I knew Ellen was part owner... I've been recommending the Vita Mineral Supplement for Ages, & my who family uses it (sparingly ;o) when in the budget. Thank You for this palatable & easy to give supplement for our lil one's & seniors ~.~
And for all you do for so many. If at anytime you would be able to consider our efforts for orphans, called Aid 4 Animals (on Facebook), for Any support could help us turn decades of work into a nonprofit, which the title alone would be a life raft for years of helping animals in need, out of pocket.
Bless you & all of your staff for being such a motivating and inspiring contribution to so many.
