My Animal-Friendly Christmas (in pictures)

My wife and I spent our Christmas day volunteering at Animal Acres near Los Angeles. She’s kinda camera shy and knows the site has an audience, so no pics of her. You’ll have to settle for all the other animals…

I just remembered I didn’t take any pictures of the vegan potluck (sorry!), but all the food was delicious, like down-home cookin’.

And don’t you forget: Animal Acres and other sanctuaries near you need your assistance. If you cannot help out with a small monthly or even an irregular donation, bodies are always needed to do some of the work you see me doing below. Despite over a dozen people, it still took a few hours to get all the work done.
