I spent a few very short weeks volunteering at LFAS & made friends/family for a lifetime. Loving Farm was the first animal sanctuary that I visited & volunteered with. It took me quite a while to finally get over my nerves & make the trip to visit. As soon as I drove onto the property, Tracey & Bill were outside, huge smiles & waving. I immediately thought to myself, "why did you wait so dang long?" That first day, I was given a tour & explained the basics of what they did & how they did it & then set up a plan to return.
Tracey met me every morning to do chores...make & feed breakfasts, clean stalls, fresh water, scoop pops, wash bowls & YES! love on all my new friends. Everyday I learned something new. And everyday I spent there with these 2 compassionate individuals, I grew stronger in my convictions. Grew more confident & sure of myself & my message. The time I spent with Tracey, Bill & my LFAS friends propelled me forward into continued volunteering & into areas of engagement & speaking that I never thought I'd relish.
Educating is one of Traceys strong suits ( I mean honestly it's all strong with her) & she does it without making it feel pushy or contrived. It's compassion baby...it just flows out of her.
Bill is the other half of this dynamic duo...the wrangler & the muscle. The man that brings home the money (not the bacon!!), divvies it up accordingly & jumps into job #2! They need to clone this man seriously!
Volunteering with this group of spirited vegan individuals with personality for days (the peeps & the animals) was the highlight of my California experience. I can not wait to go back!
