indomitable spirit.” – Michele Nash

Our donation is in memory of our sweet chicken, Koffey. She had a recurring
eye infection and would often use her beak to find her way around.
Horrifically, it appears that a weasel found a small opening in her coop,
squeezed through, and killed her. Grief stricken but with a strong resolve
to never let this happen again, we are making this donation in memory of
our sweetest, most gentle and docile companion, Koffey. – Dave and Cheryl Hopkins
My donation is in memory of my rooster, Bird – short for Superbird.
He was the best rooster in the world! I take in a lot of sick, abandoned
and hurt birds, and through it all, my buddy Bird was there, preening them,
softly cooing to them, helping them roost. That 9 pounds of luvin rooster
would let people run their fingers through his feathers and hold him and I
never worried he would hurt someone. In June 2016, Bird got very sick, and
despite good veterinary care, he wasted away and then passed quietly in my
arms with his head on my shoulder. Months later, I still cry as I type this
to you. I am attaching a photo of Bird in loving memory of him. – Dee Waters
In honor of Nero, Fredericka, Julie, Nathaniel, Leonard, and Bertha,
remembered forever and sadly missed. – Paul Deane
My gift is in honor of All God’s Creatures. – Brien Comerford
