Welcome to Fur, Feathers & Fins, the official West Place blog! Our organization has been rescuing farm animals and rehabilitating wildlife for 14 years now, and we decided it was time to share some of our experiences, expertise, and knowledge with you in a more detailed format.


Within this blog you will find fun facts about many of the animal residents at West Place Animal Sanctuary, as well as information to help you should you encounter an animal in need. You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to make a farm animal sanctuary run smoothly and why we do things a certain way. As we start to emerge from baby wildlife season, you’ll also learn more about our rehabilitation work and how we help animals from communities throughout our region. You’ll hear directly from volunteers, staff, student interns, and guest authors.


We hope you find this extended format interesting, informative, and inspiring. We also want to hear from you! Leave comments, ask questions, or suggest topics for us to address in future posts. And be sure to share Fur, Feathers & Fins with friends!
