While my kids were growing up they were always finding stray animals and bringing them home. How could I say no when I saw how much they wanted to care for and help these animals... We had everything from cats, dogs, horses, birds, squirrels, bunnies, reptiles, bugs and more! Living on our little farm let us create a safe haven for lots of these homeless animals. All of our dogs we have rescued and adopted. In these pictures is Ellie who had a very rough start to life but is now so dearly loved by our family.
