What a wonderful animal sanctuary! I had the time of my life today taking a guided tour of Wildhaven Ranch. The tour was about two hours long and included viewing majestic Eagles and a very cute Bob Cat. I howled with the Coyotes (and an opera star) and was very impressed by some very entertaining Black Bears. Lots of other animals reside there too but I just can't remember all of them.

Besides taking pictures of all my new friends, I learned tons and tons of information about these beautiful animals from Diane, Bill and Roger (what a super team). How they interact with nature, what their specific duty is in the ecological system, why the animals are here, and how they got here. We also learned how and why Wildhaven Ranch developed from the dream of a little 9 year old Lake Arrowhead resident. I am sure that running this animal sanctuary takes a huge sum of money, like any business does, for food, utilities, employees, taxes, doctors, etc. even the shirts provided to the fantastic volunteers that help maintain the animals and grounds of this awesome 35 acre ranch.

Sooooo, here is my pitch for all who read this post: please come up and experience, for yourself, Wildhaven - - an amazing and peaceful place that needs your support.
