BLACK FRIDAY EVENTS AT RIKKI'S


BLACK SHEEP FRIDAY


Join us for our very first Black Sheep Friday .....   don't rush out to spend money playing into the hands of commercializing every holiday and event .....  don't get caught up in the mad rush .....

Think about Thanks and about Giving at this time of year.  Look around ... be grateful for the planet you live on ....  be thankful for your fellow earth mates .....

Show your Thanks by Giving back this Black Friday ....   

You can pick who you'd like to spend the day with.  We'd pick the animals ......  and if you do too come to Rikki's or spend the day volunteering at a local sanctuary or shelter and helping the animals who are so often forgotten during the holiday season.

If you pick hoomans .....  spend the day visiting at a nursing home, a children's home, a homeless shelter, a woman and children shelter.  YOU can make a difference on Friday .....  

Show the world and PUT YOUR TIME AND YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR HEART TELLS YOU TO

Help commercialize holidays by forking it over to the big corporations you hate seeing growing fat on your dollars ......  or spend it really making a difference .....

The future of the planet and every soul on it, is in YOUR hands.   

Spend the day with us at Rikki's, working with our Sanctuary Manager, assisting in feeding of the animals, cleaning of the animal areas to include scooping poop, raking poop, and disposing of the poop!

Yup, it's a lot of poop !!!

It is outside work, so dress for the weather, bring your animal-friendly lunch (this means to share but don't bring animal parts to eat), and work from 10 am until 3 pm!!

It's hard work, but with great rewards and our volunteers will get LOTS of animal interaction (in addition to animals in pastures and pens, we also have many free range cats, dogs, goats, turkeys, peacocks, ducks, geese, chickens, etc that will likely be your shadows!).

We are a life care sanctuary with 1300 animals, both domestic and farm, of 22 different species - from cats, dogs, turkeys, emus, cows, pigs, goats, and everything in between!!

Why not try something different for Black Friday??

You must sign up in advance to attend !!!

Send an email to VOLUNTEERS@RikkisRefuge.org NOW for your free ticket !!

CATCHING UP ON THE PAST


Ohh we've had exciting times since I last talked to you .....  
      and I'll tell you more about them later .....  
               but just to get you up to date.......


SAVING SARA

Sara kept coming to visit Rikki's Refuge since she was an itty bitty baby calf.  She was an escape artist living on an adjoining farm.  She kept coming over to visit with our cows and sheep and goats and cats and dogs ....  Sara was a friend to everyone. 

We welcomed her roaming our refuge, we wanted her to be allowed to stay, to grow up, to enjoy life with us.  Yet she would be retrieved and taken home.  But soon she'd be back. 

And she grew .... and grew .... and now she's about a year old and her family was being sent off to market ....  and still .... Sara came to Rikki's ....  looking longingly at the safety and protection we offer our animals ....  a life ... for as long as god let's them be here. 

Knowing the end of her life was coming soon, our volunteer Nora, rallied others together and raised the money to buy Sara's freedom. 

The days the papers were signed and the exchange made, Sara stood there in the driveway that separates our two farms .... our farm of peace and happiness ever after called Rikki's Refuge .... their farm of the cycle of short term life and off to market ...  looking over our Sanctuary Manager's (Doug) shoulder as he signed her papers. 

Sara took one last look over her shoulder at her family, already loaded on livestock trucks and ready to ride off to market, she let out a long low mooo .....   and turned and followed Doug to Rikki's and turn our gate to live a life of happy ever after. 

We are so thankful to those of you who saved Sara from becoming a steak or a hamburger.  THANK YOU.  

It's wonderful people like YOU who support Rikki's Refuge and make it possible for us to feed, house, and care for all these wonderful animals of so many wonderful species who just want peace and happiness and live .....   and YOU make it possible for us to do it ....   ONE DOLLAR AT A TIME !!!!

Thank you for being there for Sara and her new family of 1300 saved happy animals ......
Your support means the world to every one of them ....  www.RikkisRefuge.org/Donate


RIKKI'S 5K RUN


Our 5K Run was a huge success with 78 runners and walkers of two species !!!!!

Thank you Dennis and Crystal for sponsoring, coordinating, managing and making the run a huge success again this year !!!!!

Congratulations to our 1st place guy Tim Sveum, 1st place gal Tiana Laux, and our Team Winner the Marines !!!!  


THREE LITTLE PIGGIES
These three little gals won't blow your house down !!!!   But they will grow up to be big beautiful girls like our Petunia ... ONLY because YOU went out of your way to save them !!!!

These girls were on loan to a pick your own produce place ....  what a great place to fatten them up before they'd be going back to the feed lot and slaughter. 

They learned to love people and got so friendly.  One kind person visiting the produce place said WHAT ???  These beautiful creatures are here to learn to love humans, to get treats, pats, to be treated like living beings with a soul and a heart .... and then to be processed into Christmas Ham? 

NO FRIGGING WAY !!!!!

She told someone about them, who told someone else, who .......   and I bet you know the rest of the story.  She heard about Rikki's and about pigs like Petunia who can live in peace and happiness just being pigs .....  cus you know ... no pig ever wanted to be ham ... or bacon ... no none of them.

And now these three little girls are here for you to play with and watch grow up.

THANK YOU for making it possible for wonderful animals to live out their natural lives !!!


PUMPKIN PICKIN
Lots of nice hoomans picked and loaded and hauled pumpkins .....   and all the grass eatin, cud chewing, vegivores are very very happy !!!!!

GOOD MORNING GOOD NEWS of Cows and Pumpkins



GOOD MORNING GOOD NEWS of Cows and Pumpkins

 


Titan

I work bery hard as spokes kitty .... I work hard and I eat hard .... and I save other aminals who need help. This Monday Titan gotted saved.

My friends Cindy and David helped too. Titan lived near them ... he'd been like a pet to the people he lived with ... Cindy and David drove by every day when they went to or from their house .... and they stopped to pet Titan and to give him apples.

Then one day they heard this little cow was going to market .... and they knew that didn't mean to go shopping either ... So they talked to Titan's owners who said they loved him so much, and hated to sell him .... but this was the prime time to get the most money for him .... so to the hamburger factory he had to go ....

This made Cindy and David very said .... and you know what they said? Do you?? They said, would you let him go live at Rikki's Refuge instead of killing him? And the owner said, nope, sorry, we love him so much, and we'd so much like to see him stay alive ... but we can make money selling him ... so selling is what we gonna do, Sorry.

So Cindy looked at David. And David looked at Cindy. And they said, ok, we buy Titan if you can drive him to Rikki's? And the owner said yippie yeahhh .... and cows cost lots ... like as much as a car .... maybe not a brand new car .... but a car for sure ...... But Cindy and David said ... oh well ... maybe we no eatz for a while fur Titan ain't a gonna be hamburger.

So Titan came to Rikki's Refuge on Monday !!!!! Welcome TITAN !!!!!

Buddy to the left, Titan to the right

Titan's not very old. All our cows are well grown up. A while back a mostly blind cow named Buddy who is very young came.

Buddy was very scared. Moving was really hard for him. But he was glad the move was to Rikki's and not the hamburger place.

He was scared. And our big cows didn't like him. And pushed him away from food. Poor Buddy.

So Buddy had a place all his own. But Buddy was very lonely. Very.

Then Madison came. Madison is a horse. Madison looked like he was about to die.

Madison, when we went to pick him up.  Animal control has told his owner get him medical care, put him down, or get rid of him, you cannot take care of him, you cannot keep him.  Luckily for Madison, his owner called Rikki's Refuge for help.  

He was so skinny and so sick when he came. But soon Madison got better. But Madison was lonely. So Madison moved in with our other horse, Honors. But Honors wasn't nice to Madison. So we let Madison meet Buddy and they became horse and cow friends.
Madison looking after his shy and scared friend Buddy

But recently Lucy a very poor and pathetic horse came. She's been left in a field and was all covered in burrs. Her tail and mane were soo full, I mean like so so so bad. So bad we couldn't even get them out. We got them off her body. But had to cut her mane and tail to get it all out. It was just horrible. And she had sores all over from being pricked by them all the time.

That's not some fancy crazy hairstyle on Lucy.  That is so many burrs that her mane and tail were all tangled up.  It took two hours of gently cutting it all out so she no longer had then sticking in her.

Now she's happy too .... and she and Madison fell in love.

f But once again ..... Poor Buddy had no friends.

So today when Titan came .... we said let's see if Titan will be nice to Buddy ..... they both need a friend right now. ........ Buddy on the left .... Titan on the right ..... just meeting each other ..... everybody is standing by to see it they get along or if they fight ..... if they fight ... I running and getting out a here ..... let da hoomans deal with that ... I not gonna get stepped on .... Opie


But look !!!!! I think Titan is gonna dopt Buddy as his baby !!!!! They seem to like each other !!!!

I so happy !!!

How bout you?

Does it make you happy to save somebody and see them make friends and be happy ?

Do you know the only reason we can do that is cus YOU help us feed them all?

I could no help nobody if you didn't help me!!! That one reason I love you so much .... YOU care and YOU save lives !!!!

You can help me feed Buddy and Titan by a little click right here .... just $5 would buy them a nice salt block all their own .... www.RikkisRefuge.org/FeedMe


Awwwww lookie lookie !!!! I just can't stop smiling!!!! Buddy is so happy one of his own loves him back !!!!! It makes me wipe way a tear of joy !!!! I bet you thought only hoomans did that !!!


Wonder why this time of year is so important?  And why YOUR help is so very much needed? 


Pumpkins are a wonderful treat for the animals ...  nutritious too ....  and FREE ....  if you help haul them to Rikki's Refuge you'll be saving us money while the big animals eat pumpkins and we don't have to buy so much feed AND you'll be giving the animals a special treat.

PLEASE SIGN UP TODAY to help us with the Great Pumpkin Haul.

He's got at least three churches lined up and ready to give their pumpkins to the animals after Halloween.  This haul will happen on Saturday November 4th and possibly the 5th if we couldn't collect them all on the 4th. 

The NOVA Pumpkin Pickers will be starting early on the 4th in North Alexandria (Seminary Road), move on to McLean/Vienna (off Rt. 7), and south Alexandria (Ft. Hunt Road) and end at Fairfax/Chantilly (right off US-50).  contact Fred to help with these locations  fred@z9a.com or 703-568-7205

Paul and Cindy will be organizing the great Pumpkin Pick at  St. Thomas in McLean, also in Northern Virginia.  If you'd like to volunteer to help them load and or drive, please contact Paul at paulcandy214@hughes.net   They'll be working this site on Saturday November the 4th, and possibly the 5th.

BIG or SMALL we save them all !!!!   This little duckling and her mom strolled up yesterday for some cracked corn.  It's awfully late in the year for mom to be sitting on eggs.  She hid her nest from us and obviously only hatched one baby.  They are now in a nice warm safe area so baby can thrive. 


I totally rely on YOU in order to feed and care for everyone.  Won't you please help out? 

$1 feeds four meals !

$25 is a HUGE help !!

Just imagine what we can do with $100 !!!

You can donate on line at www.RikkisRefuge.org/Donate

Or send an Amazon Gift Card - these days, so much can be purchased there cheaper than in a store.  Of course we can't make great big huge bulk savings deals on Amazon like we can at the store.  So when you send the funds to buy food, we get to buy lots and lots more for your donation !!!!

No matter how you want to help ....  won't you just HELP today ?
