  1. Well, I thought I’d seen it all, the amazing things you do at Edgar’s Mission!! But, the miracle work you, Pam, Kyle and all the wonderful people there do, just keeps coming! Just incredible! Thank you for sharing these wonderful stories with us. I cannot think of a nicer way to start the day!! Love you all – Lia

  2. You are all so fantastic at Edgar’s Mission, and I thank you with all my heart. Of all the animals in the world, it’s farm animals that seem to be treated the worst – they’re “just food”, and not worthy of being taken care of. And how lovely they all are. I just love pigs . . . . . as friendly as dogs, and not far from being so intelligent as dogs are.
    I’m getting old now, and am very sad that it took me until my late 30’s to pay much attention to farm animals – probably because computers weren’t around, and we just didn’t get the news about them that we do now. What a pity that the information that was coming through then was so utterly appalling, and seemingly getting worse.
    My time is mostly taken up now with writing messages of objection to the way ALL animals are treated around the world now, and I sign any petition that comes my way,
    Incidentally, are you still going to be part of Care 2’s Petition site as you were (last year?). That’s where I discovered you, as you won the Overseas Prize (I think). I sign there every day, though I’m waiting for the new site to start – I believe they’re changing it all around. If you were there again, I would of course vote for you all the time – though before I discovered you (when it was all over for the season) I always voted for the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs – I hate the way people get fed up with their dogs when they get older, and just dump them, or leave them in empty places when the people move on. They are in the States, of course – I haven’t found all that many places in Australia. I’m a member of Animals Australia, and have a monthly donation with them, and with a few other places too. Being on an aged Pension, buried in country Qld. I have very little “spare” funds, but it all goes to help animals, ALL of whom I love deeply. I know all the dogs in the area, but very few of the neighbours, lol. I have two beautiful Shelter dogs, one who is getting on now, (she’ll be 11 on 18th June) and my lovely young boy (he’ll be 5 on 5th August) – and they’re gorgeous. I also have a Brown Burmese cat – I know the lady who breeds them, and he was a gift – gorgeous creature that he is.
    I’m sorry this is so verbose – but I really wanted to know about the Care 2 competition, and if you were still going to be in it.
    I bought some delightful keyrings from you a couple of weeks ago, and they are really lovely – so beautifully made, with your wonderful slogan on a tag with them. They’re for my Grand-Girls, whom I’m trying to make very animal-aware. I only send them gifts from Animal Sites, because they have MORE than everything, and they MUST learn that this is NOT the way the whole world works – well I think they MUST, anyway.
    With love to you all, truly – LOVE – for all you do. What a fantastic place and people you are. I shall have to go into my economics, and see if I can shuffle some money around, and help you in a very minor way. Bless you all.

  4. My friend Mary is smiling down on you and all at the sanctuary.
    Thank you for sharing the photo of your Mary pig. Mary had a little (OK, not so little) pig. She would love that, and I’m sure she’s very happy that donations to her went to you at Edgar’s Mission.

  5. Pam, I am crying like a baby. Thank you to all of you for everything you do for these precious ones. Love certainly transcends.

  6. I cried tears of joy as I watched Soda Pop’s journey! What a wonderful Sanctuary you have for these precious animals. Thank-you for being so loving and giving of yourselves to help those that need a little extra love and help:)

  7. What a beautiful story. I cried when I saw Soda Pop take her first steps. Rescuing and caring for animals is an effort so close to my heart. Thank goodness for all of you at the mission for your never ending love for these animals.
