Precious Life Animal Sanctuary

A safe home for animals who have suffered from cruelty and neglect

Emergency Work Party

Congratulations are due!


If you could not come to the work party but would like to help you can help defray the cost of materials and expenses:

Our worries of a volunteer turnout on Saturday, June 23, on short notice in a time of need, evaporated with those dedicated committed individuals who showed up. Their efforts, their skills, attention to detail and joyously working together made it possible to complete the task in one day. By reducing the size of the overhead netting, it will prevent the bobcat(s) from entering to decimate our rescued rabbit population.

This was not an easy task as much of the work was accomplished on ladders while reaching overhead in a warm temperature. Afterward, we all enjoyed each others' company over a vegan lunch.

Special thanks to Matt Chaney, Robin and Tom from the Tacoma Humane Society, Debra Knutson, John Mash, and our two faithful volunteers, Elaine and Ken, without whom we couldn't continue.

The conversation was extremely interesting since we had Jim Myers, Co-Founder of Animal Aid Unlimited Sanctuary in India along with members of his family who volunteered on the project. Animal Aid Unlimited is unsurpassed in what they have accomplished in India.

For the animals,
Ralph and and Caryl Turner

We asked about his male dairy calves and he replied they were born every day and picked up three times a week. He didn’t seem to know or care what happened to them as they were an inconvenience and there was little return on investment.

I must confess, I was somewhat taken aback by his presence. He was very skinny with his ribs protruding and uncontrollable with a fierce wolf-like muzzle…
