Think of your vote as being a gift to the animals.

Monday, May 2nd: election day.  Did you vote in the advance polls?  Will you vote on Monday? It is so easy not to and so important when you do. 

 Try thinking of your vote as being a gift to the animals.  After the election, the struggle will begin anew to improve legislation regarding animal cruelty.  And right now the politicians are listening to us.  If they hear us now, they will hear us when we call for a new Bill.

 Now is the time to ask politicians what they will do to protect animals in Canada. The candidates are listening and the animals need you to speak on their behalf. Now is the time to demand that politicians update our old animal cruelty laws and take the necessary steps to better protect all animals.

The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA Canada) has streamlined the contact process.  When you go to their website you can find political party responses to WSPA’s recent survey.  Which party (s) care about animals?

As well, from the WSPA site you can contact your MP candidates and your local paper with letters that are easy to personalize.  We need to speak for our animal friends.  Please take a moment and write a letter.  Make animals matter. Go to www.voteforanimals.ca  and

VOLUNTEERS – A Priceless Resource

It would be difficult to overestimate the contributions made to the Sanctuary community by our dedicated volunteers.  Evidence of the significant role that they have  played in the life of the DSC can be found in every week, of every month, of every year of our nearly two decades of operation.

  Grooming the donkeys, cleaning the barnyard, painting a wall, updating files, walking in the Santa Claus parade, parking cars on Donkey Day, greeting visitors on Open Days…….the list is almost endless of the areas where they have contributed so generously of their time and talents.  Our small community is indeed enriched by their gifts. 

On behalf of the animals, to all of our volunteers, thank you for caring and for giving so much.

Dolly Saves The Day

The story about Dotty, the donkey, (see below) is a fine example of how very protective a donkey can be when it has bonded with a companion animal.  The operative word here is ‘bonded’, however.  Results would probably not have been the same if Dolly had been plunked into the middle of a flock of sheep with the expectation that she would be inclined to protect them all.  That is seldom, if ever, the case.  Meanwhile, this condition does not take away from the fact that Dotty is a heroine.
