We are thrilled that Dr. Viktor Reinhardt has included JERAS in his new book, “Home For Life, Sanctuaries For Abandoned Pets”.  He just sent us a copy and it features 12 sanctuaries, so we are very honored to be one of them.

From a bio:

“In 1994, Reinhardt joined the Animal Welfare Institute as a consultant. The Institute was instrumental in creating the Animal Welfare Act (1955, amended in 1985). Reinhardt writes papers to increase awareness among young scientists and the public to improve the living and handling conditions of non-human primates and laboratory animals in general.

Observing undisturbed animals fascinates Reinhardt. He is “humbled that animals of very different species and people share the same emotional and behavioral roots.”

“For me,” Reinhardt says, “it has always been a privilege to be with animals, to gain their trust and to gradually get some insight into their emotions. Observing animals is often like looking into a mirror; you learn much about yourself.”

……….I ran to town this morning to get lumber and corrugated steel roofing to make a 20 X 10 foot roof over some corral panels I fixed up to form a burro shelter. Next week, I will run some new electric fence, which is thankfully very reasonable to install, in order to create an area for the burros. That way, our 3 burros and the 2 girls coming from New Mexico will have their own area.

Our Friend Allison Morris, on Facebook, create this nice greeting for us. I ordered some prints so we can use it for cards. Thank you, Allison!

Holiday Greetings

Well, tomorrow morning I will be building the burro shelter, after chores and exercising the dogs. I have already pre-drilled the lumber so nailing will be easier when installing the rafters. I am sure that I will have a huge audience, the animals love to watch me working for them!
