You've got to give them lots of thanks and hugs ok? And tell your friends to stop by up there and leave you more presents under the tree!

When I read about all that is happening at Rikki's right now, I am literally open-mouthed at how much it has changed in the past 10-12 years. I remember going to see Rikki's with some members of an animal rescue group I was volunteering with back in 2001 to get some ideas of how to manage our animals. It was a cold, nasty day, and the Rikki-ites were digging water lines by hand. They were really disappointed that we were there to observe, not help (and I don't blame them!) One of the people with me said on the way home, "Well, that wasn't at all what I expected" - and I don't think she meant it as a compliment. I wish I knew where she is now so I could bring her back and show off what all that back-breaking labor and worry and hope has brought about at Rikki's Refuge. Her organization should BE so lucky!
