It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Our Friends

Goodbye George and Manette

Sometimes you never see it coming. Sometimes you do. Life throws these curve balls that come in the form of loss. Yesterday we felt this loss hit us very hard. We lost two very good friends, George the emu and Manette the cat.

George was found wandering loose in Sharon Township a few years ago. No one ever stepped forward to claim him so he got to keep his new home at SASHA Farm. Awhile later we got another call to rescue an emu on the loose. We named him Dundee. Although George and Dundee had a few tense moments that quickly gave way to a friendship that lasted for a few years. George and Dundee became brothers. The emu brothers were two of the most popular animals at SASHA Farm. Now that George is gone Dundee is very lost. He misses his brother and friend. Although he is surrounded by other animals at the farm we sense he feels very alone right now. George had been sick over the winter and after vet visits, medication and a lot of consultations on his condition no one could diagnose his illness. However, when the snow melted and he got back outside he improved and we were hopeful. His recovery was short lived and he started to decline again. Now we have lost him and his absence does not go unnoticed. Having to break the news to our volunteers was the hardest. He was loved by so many and now when they arrive to say good morning to him George will not be there. It's heartbreaking but George leaves behind a legacy and that is: Emus like hugs and if you ever hugged one you know that you've made a friend.

Help Us Find A Forever Home for Bonnie Blue and Rasta Angel!

dogs for adoption may 2014

We need your help! Our friend Michelle needs to rehome her two sweet pups. Bonnie Blue, age 6 came to Michelle at eight weeks old from a nearby shelter. She is a very special girl who aims to please. Rasta Angel is a two-year-old Shepherd mix, male who came to Michelle from a very irresponsible young man who took her out of the Humane Society Shelter, however, could not take care of her. He is delightful, loving and playful, and loves to run. Both have exceptional temperaments, are fast learners, and respond well to positive discipline, and love to do tricks for treats. Michelle is willing to help financially support the dogs initially and they are up-to-date with all their veterinary care. Michelle recently married and unfortunately her new husband is terribly allergic to her dogs. Since they began living together he began suffering with a terrible allergic reaction causing significant respiratory problems, where he suffers from bronchospasms daily, with difficulty sleeping, despite medication. It's terrible to have to make choices like this, however, Michelle's hopes are that she can find good homes for her dogs. If you can give these sweet dogs a forever home email Michelle at michelleshafer@aol.com. If you can't please share the info with someone you know who might be able to help. Thank you!
