Brian Best helper

This is Brian.  He has been an angel.  He has come around to do morning chores ever since the first of the year when Lynda was recovering from total knee replacement.  Not only was she slow moving but she was scared of ice, snow, and mud.  All the animals love Brian and the wonderful care he gives each and every one.  Here he is with Tuffy.  Every day Brian has helped to put ointment in his. eye.  Tuffy is making a good recovery.  He has lost most of the sight in his eye but still gets around just fine.  The cherry eye has prevented him from being adopted but our vet has cleared him for adoption as long as new owners monitor his eye.  Come around and visit him.  He loves attention.

Two new arrivals from Mississippi

These two little aged goats are the last of a heard belonging to Penny from Mississippi.  Penny is moving to Utah to be with her son, daughter-in-law and new baby.  These dear little old ladies rode in a pony transport.  The pygmy is Thumbilina and the Nubian is Bunny.As they look around they seem to think "we are not in Kansas any more".  Pancake is the first to welcome them.
Then Togo and Ghana come to welcome Thumbilina.

Nathan stands guard to make sure the new arrivals are safe.  Come around and meet these two new ladies,  and help them feel at home.  
                                                Bunny checks out her new surroundings.
  Thumbilina is a little more timid when meeting Molly the Zebu for the first time.  Volunteers Ken and Laura help them feel comfortable.

Kitty Love ♥

Animals big and small call Edwards' Animals home. Edwards' has a wonderful clowder of cats that roam and play. With the beautiful weather returning, our kitties have been even more content than usual!

Tomcat Grey flicks his tail in the sun to test its warmth.

Tomcat Orange gazes out the window to see who might stop by.

These kitties could always use affection and a good brushing! If you have any time feel free to stop by and share in the love.

This weekend, I took all of my clipper blades down to Murdock's in Parker to the mobile sharpening trailer. The owner Kim Nelson is a Certified Master Sharpener, and the quote on his card said "I take personal pride in every job I do. If you're not happy, I promise to make you happy." When I went to pick up the blades, Kim introduced me to his beautiful rescued Golden Retriever. What a kind professional man, he will check out finding a sheep sheerer for us, and on top of that, he did not charge for his blade sharpening service. His phone number is (303)906-1717 and he will be there on weekends.

 He also does knives, scissors, razors, lawn mower blades, chainsaw blades, shovels and hoes, hatchets and axes, woodworking tools, and anything else that you may want to ask him about.

Make Mine a Chocolate!

                Make Mine Chocolate!

      Before buying a pet Rabbit or Chick for you house at Easter please consider these facts: 

*Rabbits and Chickens are not low maintenance pets.  They require as much work as a dog or cat.

*Rabbits can live 8 to 10 years sometimes longer. Chicks 5 years or more

*The necessary spay or neuter for rabbits can cost $200 dollars or more and rabbits require routine vet
care.  Chicks can grow into noisy roosters.

*Rabbits and chicks when grown are not cuddly- they can become frightened when held.

*Rabbits and chicks cannot be set “free”--- it can be a death sentence.

*This Easter why not make it a Chocolate bunny or chick.

*Or a cuddly stuffed toy instead of a live animal.
Help make it a happy Easter for bunnies, chicks and ducklings, too.

Help spread the word that bunnies, chicks and baby ducks are not disposable pets.

Alternatives to live animals:
-Chocolate bunnies
-Realistic looking toys
-Decorated Easter baskets
-Colored Easter eggs
-Fuzzy stuffed play animals.
-Spring bouquets
