Review for Rivers Wish Animal Sanctuary, Spokane, WA, USA
Rivers wish holds a special place in my family’s life and heart! Kit was my dear teaching partner for 12 years. Her passion for inspiring children and opening their hearts to the wonders of self expression were beyond inspiring . Each child was given hope and encouragement regardless of their artistic abilities. In a competitive world built around results and worldly standards this was so refreshing. It was the act of creating that mattered to Kit. I remember visiting Rivers Wish. The animals were all so loved and cared for. Many had obvious health issues from previous abuse and neglect. But the thing is just like her tender support and care she gave each child in her art room, she does the same at her sanctuary. Whether it was behavioral issues or health she and Pete meet each creature where they are at and respond with love and compassion and focus. When I brought my granddaughter Ruby there I could see how she marveled at each creature. She fell in love with Violet the turkey. Giving Violet massages under her wings! But what I hope that Ruby sees is a place where everyone belongs regardless of the state of your body or mind. You are loved.. respected and cared for!A life lesson that I hope she carries with her all her life .
