Pet Rescue Area

Steve in Visalia, CA

Penni & I are animal lovers and have a cat rescue area on our property. It is about 1/4 acre surrounded by 10 ft. high fences and covered by netting (netting is new and pics soon). There are also 2 small barns in the enclosure. The cats have access to one barn (via pet doors) and the other is used for storage & supplies. We recently moved in about a dozen chickens and a rooster to help keep down the weeds and bugs. We're also getting about a dozen eggs a day!

Thanks Karen. It gets tougher and tougher in these times to care for the forgotten and discarded creatures.

What you people are doing is wonderful. I have two Maltese Dogs we bought from breeders and a Cat that we rescued, he was a stray that had been neutered and declawed. He is very pretty with blue eyes. You can see him in my yard. ( Cottage Remodel ) Keep up the good work
