King of the Pond

Monday I received a call from my friend Lory, who was with her son Enzo, on a school field trip at a small neighborhood lake in Northville. She had explained to me that a swan had been resting on a shore, not too far from where his mate was nesting, and apparently, someone had noticed […]

Little Sarah, smile awhile…

This past Saturday (5/30/15), we welcomed a new member to the Sanctuary family, and her name is Little Sarah, and she appears to be an Orpington (aka.

Couples Day at the Sanctuary

Couples day today at the Sanctuary! As I walked around this morning, I noticed that there were a lot of ‘couples’ hanging out a little more than usual, or at least it seemed like it to me, so I started snapping photos.    

Marold Found his Final Paradise

As many of you may remember, Marold, our precious rescue from the Brighton Mill Pond, had a tough time since his arrival.  He had lost his ability to walk and care for himself at the pond, so he was given refuge at our Sanctuary, where he would have constant care around the clock, if need be.  […]

On a Wing and a Plane

Our precious cargo arrived yesterday afternoon via Atlanta, GA., (a 750 mile flight, and she didn’t even break a sweat), and her name is Daisy. Her owner, Kathi, has several ducks, I believe 3 boys and 3 girls, but poor little Daisy was the constant target of the boy’s abuse, and they were relentless to […]
