Review for Life Unlimited of Virginia Inc, Annandale, VA, USA
I can't say enough wonderful things about this fine organization. From the countless number of animals whose lives it has changed and rescued to the ways it has helped me through difficult times in my life. After losing a loved one the only place I could go to be reminded of the joys of life was Rikkis Refuge.
So many animals have had their lives completely changed because of the hard work and dedication of these people.
The animals that come here know they are now safe and will always have a safe environment to live out the rest of their days.
Many choose to repay the refuge with hard work also. There are spokeskitties and spokesdoggies who get the word out and represent the refuge. There are fowl who help keep the flea and tick population under control. There are dogs the patrol the borders at night to keep unfriendliness at bay. And there there are the animal caretakers who look out for other animals at the refuge.
One special case is a goose that keeps a careful watch on an elderly donkey. After Bub the donkey lost his mate this elderly donkey was quickly befriended by a goose who showed up one day. The goose never leaves Bub's side, "protects" him from others and even escorts him to bed when the goose senses he is getting tired. It is truly one of the most amazing things I have ever witnessed.
