Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary Moving Forward Open House
When: Sunday, June 22nd, 12:00noon to 5pm
Where: Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary, 5623 New Milford Road, Ravenna, Ohio 44266
Details: In February, Happy Trails experienced a tragedy with the loss of the goat/sheep barn due to a devastating and deadly fire. Four animals were saved, while four others were lost in the blaze. This Spring has been a time of healing for the sanctuary as we rebuild, move forward, and continue to serve our communities regarding animal rescue, rehabilitation and recovery services for farm animals and horses. We invite and encourage everyone to share this experience with us. Along with viewing our new 64′x120′ covered arena, the new newly rebuilt goat/sheep barn, and the new muti-purpose building, and meeting the rescued animals in person, we will offer 15 educational and informative mini-workshops throughout the day related to animals. Workshops include — “Mad About Ewe” with Dr. Randy Alger of Alger Vet Clinic, discussing goats and sheep as pets; Ohio’s animal abuse laws review with Rescue Village Humane Officer, Christian Courtwright; discovering the benefits of equine massage therapy with certified massage therapist, Angela Rahn; learning how to handle equine emergencies and horse safety tips with veterinarian, Dr. Hill, with Cleveland Equine Clinic; and Compassionate Kids programs for ages 6 through 8 and ages 9 through 12 teach the importance of being kind to our furry and feathered friends while creating and designing their very own t-shirt to show that kids care about animals. And members of the Tri-County Mounted Patrol will demonstrate the amazing abilities of their equine law enforcement partners. These mentioned are only a few of the many mini-workshops and demos offered throughout the day. Lunch, snacks and refreshments will be will be available to purchase.
