ResQte Of The Week 2: Great White North Edition

9312From Vanessa S. in the Great White North! “Hello to my favourite people at Cute Overload! I was hoping that you would post about my favourite place to spend time – Wishing Well Sanctuary. The sanctuary means so much to many of us in the Toronto area and is our ‘go to’ place for peace, love and harmony. Above, that’s Muzzle Tov being photo bombed by Chakra.”

“Not only are they a sanctuary, for animals and people, but they also offer a number of humane education programs to teach children about our planet and the importance of compassion and being kind to one another.”

“They have recently added a number of newcomers to their family, Kai and Bali the calves, Petunia the pig, and Meadow the lamb. I thought that everyone might like to meet them. Peace for all beings.”

“Oh and here’s their FB.”

Why Bother With Windex™?

funny-animals-licking-glass-22__700After all, it can lead to messy streaks and smears on your glass window. Just: 1) Spritz off the window with a few drops o’ water. 2.) Just plop your kitteh, puppeh, hammie, otter, or…reptile in front of the window and let ’em get to work! It’s cost effective, too!
