BEAVER CREEK FARM SANCTUARY
We are thrilled to welcome the wonderful people from Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary to this year's Blessfest. Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary rescues everything from horses to pigs to goats and geese and puppies, many from puppy mills. They offer them a safe haven and make sure their medical needs are met. Many of the animals at Beaver Creek have become permanent residents due to severe health issues like Charlotte the pig and Nelly the goat. They also work to find loving homes for some of their lucky rescues.
Come say hi to Amy and meet some of her menagerie including beautiful Splash. The blind pony who has become the ambassador for Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary.
Amy and her team will be bringing some of their other animals as well including Herschel the piggy. That's a first for Blessfest and its really exciting. Picture a piggy wearing a halo! Like I said, no same old, same old for Blessfest!!!!
There is no doubt Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary will be a very popular addition to Blessfest.

She is a compelling speaker and a very compassionate person who has a mission to help those of us who have lost or may lose a beloved pet. It is a book everyone with a senior or a pet with medical issues should have.

PROCYON - pronounced PRO SEE YON is an incredible organization that saves and rehabilitates our wildlife.
Their job is overwhelming because there are very few organizations equipped to deal with wildlife in Ontario. Everything from bunnies to bats and wolves to weasels come through their doors. They take them all in, fix them whenever possible and release them back into their habitat.
It's difficult and sometimes heart breaking work but they have many happy tails to share as well. Stop by to meet this great group of volunteers and learn about all they do. Ask them to tell you the story of Willow or one of their other success stories.
Willow was brought into Procyon paralyzed and unable to walk because of an apparent spinal injury. Volunteers worked diligently to help Willow recover including taking turns every day wrapping her and carrying her outside for exercise.
You can imagine the tears of joy when one day they found Willow standing.
The dedication and hard work by these wonderful people paid off. Willow is only one example of what these angels accomplish.
THE PROCYON MISSION: dedicated to working with our communities in an effort to help wild animals in need of care. Our goals are to rescue, rehabilitate and safely release these animals, and to promote public appreciation for wildlife preservation.
