Movers and Shakers (How to Move Hay)


It is a fine art to be able to move hay. A few of the key ingredients required for moving hay include; able bodies that are willing to get a little dirty, rhythm/timing, and most important of all, communication, to ensure that everybody is safe and doing what they're supposed to.

Dover Saddlery's Giving Tree


Thank you so very much to Dover Saddlery for always allowing Edwards Rescued Foundation to take part in their annual Giving Tree. We are so very grateful for all of the resources and continued support that they have bestowed upon us for many years. BIG thank you, to Victoria from Dover Saddlery for her speedy service and kindness. Our animals will benefit greatly from those generous supplies gifted to us.

Our Lovely Little Kanga has Crossed the Rainbow Bridge


We sadly had to send off one of our two beloved Suri llamas, Kanga. Kanga and Roo came to Edwards Rescue Foundation as a pair several years ago and have been bringing joy too many volunteers on their morning walks. Kanga has a sister by the name of Roo who is going to be needing a lot of special attention throughout the next few weeks.

Thank you so very much to Living Springs for being so willing to help Kanga in her time of need. Their amazing team of nurses, doctors, and veterinary techs were wonderful with their kind and compassionate care and gave Kanga a comfortable and peaceful transition into greener pastures.

 One of our wonderful volunteers, Zoey, donated a tank de-icer to keep the water from freezing in the winter. The animals and volunteers will both enjoy the defrosted water.

Shared Passion from

In the next few weeks you’ll all be making the “we need to rehome our pet“ posts.  These are the people who purchase puppies, kittens, rabbits, ducks, goats, etc. as Christmas gifts or COVID companions who are suddenly allergic, moving, have a baby, or just don’t have timePossibly, their kids also don’t take on the responsibility of pet ownership. They never thought the pet would grow to be so big, didn’t think they’d shed, didn’t think they needed so much food and spaceThe problem is 90% of unwanted pets end up in kill shelters.  


Allow me to break it down for you:

1. You didn’t know you had an allergy? Oops don’t let the pets suffer, buy some allergy pet medicine

2. You’re moving? What city are you moving to that does not allow dogs? Bullshitville? You do have a responsibility to your living, breathing family member to plan ahead and find a house, apartment or condo that will allow your furry friend. I would be HOMELESS with my pet before giving them up!

3. Oh, you had no idea you were due to have a baby in two months... didn’t know that’s how it worked? Get a dog trainer and remember that the pet was your child first.

4. Don’t have time to let a dog out or to have a dog just sit next to you while you’re home? Really? So they are better off in a shelter than waiting in your house for you to get home? OK, perhaps get another pet to keep them company or look for a local dog sitter.

5. You mean your five-year-old didn’t step up to the plate to feed, walk, and scoop poop like they promised? I guess it’s time for you to step up and role model for your child.

6. Wrong size? Not cute as an adult? Sheds too much? Barks? Breathes? Not quite the personality you expected? Look in the mirror, how do you turn out?  Should we send you back? Guess what? If the roles were reversed, your dog would NEVER LET YOU GO!

Thank you Claire Guthrie, We Sit For You,
