A Sunday at Animal Acres
|With our sponsored goose, Winston.|
This Sunday was outstanding.
Steve and I started our day with coffee, a Badass Vegan Breakfast Sandwich, and bagel from Locali on Franklin Ave - if you haven't tried the badass (which it most definitely is!) sandwich there, please go now, and take a non-vegan friend with you! With food and drink in hand (or rather lap and cup holder), we then made the 45-minute trip up to Animal Acres. We were intending to only stay for a couple of hours. Nearly six hours later, as the sun was getting lower in the sky, we forced ourselves to say goodbye to the human and animal residents at Animal Acres and return home to Los Angeles.

If you haven't already noticed from my regular posts about Animal Acres on KMIV, I am head over heels in love with this sanctuary. Please consider donating, becoming a member, sponsoring an animal, or, if you live near Acton, giving this beautiful place a visit. You can learn more at www.animalacres.org.
