“Hi…hi…hi” A lovely parrot visiting with Mike Reed from Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue, greeted guests as they came through SFACC’s door to attend a reception on June 18. Hosted by the Friends of SFACC the reception was held in appreciation of major donors who contributed to the new building fundraising campaign. On the rooftop, everyone enjoyed made-to-order crepes and chilled mimosas, and mingled with board members, SFACC staff and volunteers, bunnies, and dogs.
Meanwhile on the second floor, visitors learned how to make a dog toy, cuddle with a guinea pig at Guinea Pig Village, and have the pleasure of experiencing a parrot on their head. In a presentation and Q&A with Officer Stephanie Pone, guests learned about the breadth of shelter services and especially the work of Animal Control Officers. Everyone had a nice time and it was a fun way to spend a sunny morning and say thank you to supporters.
The Friends of SFACC is also purchasing canopies to help shade the upstairs rabbit run. The canopies will reduce the heat and allow for more small animal playtime on the roof. Thank you Friends!
