The Introverted Advocate

Nine years ago, a tragedy shook America. Yet, not much has changed to prevent it from happening again. Today, I say their names. It's my first step in learning how I may contribute to the solution of stopping violence. Each of us has the power to contribute to the solution. The question is: Will we step up?

Being self-aware helps us be respectful of those around us. It's important to look after one another. If we see someone who needs a little support, let's say something. After all, one day we may wish someone notices us and offers a kind word or helpful hand.

Animals. Let’s visit with the animals!

Come with me and I’ll introduce you to the big family of rescued-farmed animals of Catskill Animal Sanctuary.

Located in the Hudson Valley of New York, rolling hills and 148 acres are the backdrop for over 300 rescued animals who live here surrounded by love, safety, and friendship.  I saw it for myself in 2018. This place is real. This is a healing place.

Let’s start with the Underfoot Family. This is unique to Catskill Animal Sanctuary: a small group of animals is given free-range privileges during the day.

Kathy Stevens, founder/executive director, realized early on that some personalities demand larger freedom. Many of the Underfoot family were rescued from small, filthy, and overcrowded spaces. Many became claustrophobic during their previous years of abuse and abandonment. They were not comfortable unless they could roam.
