We are very happy that Lynea has been chosen as Central Valley Remarkable Women winner. (March  2020)

How we expanded from 6 acres to 12 acres: When Doreen Wallet, a Special Needs school teacher, passed away June 25,  2003 aged 56, she bequeathed to us her condo, car and several  pieces of artwork. She and her sister Sara had an agreement to donate to each others' favorite charities instead of giving each other Christmas and birthday presents. Sara had given Doreen the names to two cat charities in Fresno and Doreen chose us because she liked reading our newsletter. The proceeds from her bequest enabled us to purchase the adjacent 6 acre property and to fence the entire sanctuary. Sara was able to visit us recently and shared with us the full story which we had not known until then. We will be forever grateful to Doreen and Sara for enabling us to accommodate so many more cats in need.  What a wonderful legacy!

Xylitol, a sugar substitute used in some sugar-free products, including candy and chewing gum, is very toxic to dogs and fatal even in small amounts (e.g. 8-10 sticks of chewing gum). It causes dangerous surges in insulin and can result in liver damage in 24 hours.
