A big shout out for new volunteers Dave and Donna from Long Island, NY (and now Virginians) a classic NY pairing of Irish and Italian, nurse and NYPD. Not only spent a rainy and cool October day cleaning stalls, but also cleared out and redid the 10-stall feed room, brushed down the stalls and emptied [...]
It is with the greatest of sadness that we had to help Bear across the rainbow bridge this afternoon. This indefatigable little Appaloosa with the huge heart has made so many friends since he came to us in 1997. At that time, his [...]

We are thankful for our family, who put up with our rescue mission even though it means we rarely see each other.

Christmas Cheer in the L-Barn
Last night, the Rescue celebrated our first Silent Night at White Bird. We opened our doors, rolled out the red carpet and invited everyone in for some hot chocolate, cider, cookies and a Christmas party for the Rescue’s residents.

Our new sign is finally up and in place, with a bed around it and sporting an array of bushes, trees and spring flowers.
Spring has very definitely arrived – “0 to 60″ overnight and winter has given way to soaring temperatures. Muzzles and fly control are the order of the day, with the sheep [...]
