In this show I met with Tina Crow, Co-Founder & President of Green Acres Farm Sanctuary, in Silverton, Oregon. She and I sat outside of the large, beautiful barn, on the farm while we conducted this interview. I apologize that at times the wind picked up, an airplane flew over head, etc. I wanted the you to feel as though you are sitting there with us and hearing those sounds along with us.
This farm is amazing and the animals each have such wonderful stories behind how they were rescued and ended up safe and well cared for at Green Acres with Tina. She tells us a couple of those stories during this episode. At the Green Acres Website there are even more stories you can read all about the animals. They have more information about how you can sponsor an animal, come volunteer at a work party, and other ways to support their organization.
You hear us talk about Houdini in this episode.
Here is a photo of this special goat:
We also talked about a goose with an injured neck.
Here he is strutting his stuff:
Tina explained to me what an isolation barn is, and here’s a photo of one:
Puddle, the 3-legged goat, was probably one of my favorite animals at the farm. He’s such a sweetheart.
The puppies were way to fast for me to catch a photograph of, and they have since moved on to be adoptable at Safe Haven Humane Society.
Tina mentions an organization called START that helps rescue animals, and you can click the word “Start” to view their website.
Here are a few other photos I took of the animals…
You heard (if you listened to the podcast) Tina and I discussing a great opportunity to go volunteer for a “work party” out at the farm. The next “work party” is Saturday, November 9, 2013 from 10am-12 noon. My family will be there and I’d absolutely be so grateful if some of you who live here locally can come meet us out there to also pitch in!
There’s no greater feeling in the world than to make others happy and knowing you helped make a difference for others. In this case both other people, and animals!
Please “like” Green Acres Farm Sanctuary on Facebook to continue spreading the word about this great organization.
Additionally, the next fundraiser will be the second Sunday of December, on 12/8/13. You can tour the sanctuary and enjoy refreshments from 11:00am-4pm. They will be selling Christmas trees and wreaths! You can find more details about that at www.greenacresfarmsanctuary.org
With so many ways you can help out, I hope you do! Thanks for supporting the Generosity Philosophy podcast.
