Wishing Well Sanctuary is pleased to align ourselves with Animal Hero Kids as they expand into Canada. Animal Hero Kids Canada had its first ever meeting at Wishing Well on Saturday October 18, 2014. There were many in attendance,adults and their children, with everyone wanting to assist the youth in becoming more empowered to make a positive difference in the lives of animals.
The youth came up with some wonderful ideas of how to deal with a number of issues, the first being cosmetic and product testing. The enthusiasm and commitment were palpable and we have high hopes for Animal Hero Kids Canada. We know that there are thousands of animal hero kids 'out there' right now Join us so that we can help each other make a BIG difference in this precious world!

MAURICE: SPRING 2012 - JAN.6 2015
Deeply loved and utterly delightful, Maurice passed away peacefully, nestled beside his 'brother' Winston. Charming and playful, loving and cuddly, we will miss Maurice tremendously. While his life ended horribly prematurely, we do take some comfort in knowing that for the time he lived at Wishing Well Sanctuary, he knew only love and affection; a far cry from the fate that had awaited him.... Forever in our hearts and souls, good-bye Maurice. We love you so!
A memorial service is being planned for the spring. Details to follow.
