December 26th, 2016|

Data... It doesn’t seem like the most appealing thing in the world, especially when you’re in the middle of saving lives.

December 13th, 2016|

Australia is known for it’s wild life, but it isn’t until you arrive that their passion for saving their native species truly becomes apparent. It’s hard to miss. You see educational signs in every park, wildlife sanctuaries on signs lining highways and even the largest animal shelters here have wildlife hospitals. This week I toured [...]

How to Create a Pet Anxiety Kit

December 8th, 2016|

To make living possible in a new country where we have not yet found jobs, we decided to pet sit, in trade, for free accommodation.

Living in a brand new country that is known for it’s wild life… dangerous and poisonous wildlife, is something that takes some adjusting.

The Little Kitten That Could

February 6th, 2016|

Zephyr was saved from a high-kill shelter in Roswell, NM just hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized. This beautiful 6 month old kitty got his 2nd chance at life! He arrived at Demi’s Animal Rescue covered in fleas – but otherwise seemingly healthy and a total sweetheart. Just about a week after he [...]
