Welcome to the site for the Rest and Recuperate Equine Care Society. What is it? Well, I’m glad you asked. It is a retirement home for animals located on Vancouver Island, BC.
They take in animals who are past their prime and let them live out their lives happily on their farm.
Navigation is simple. You will find it on the side menu. The categories are:
Pictures and Stories – Here you can meet the animals and learn their stories. You will find horses, sheep, dogs, cats and even wild boar pigs. On some of the pictures, you can click the images to enlarge them.
I wish there were more pictures though, because these animals all seem to have such great personalities. Sid and Wilbur were my favorites. Sid looks like he’s smiling in his second picture and Wilbur just looks so saucy.
Links and Things – This section has some links, but also has a huge listing of the news articles done on this animal retirement farm, as well as, some noteworthy happenings. For example, the grant they received and radio spots they’ve done.
In Memoriam – Here you can see those animals that have already passed on. They will be honored and remembered here always. I think it is really touching that they are honoring these animals here on their Web page.
Places like this are, in my opinion, small slices of Heaven on earth. Just knowing that there are people out there who care enough about animals to take them in, shelter them, care for them and let them live happily until their natural end is remarkable.
I am honored to share what these folks out at the Rest and Recuperation Equine Care Society are trying to do. Check it out!
