HURRICANE BUDDIES PROGRAM A BIG SUCCESS

Some of the “Hurricane Buddies” are starting to come back to Winterpast Farm Petting zoo in Wake Forest NC. Big Thanks to all the kind local families and individuals who took a small furry friend into their home during what we thought would be a huge storm. Farmer Mary is very thankful that Florence turned away and she is slowly getting the very wet zoo cleaned up and getting the remaining bunnies and Guinea pigs out of her safe garage and into their usual hutches and pens.

This morning she is donating many of her big wire dog crates to help with a huge hurricane pet rescue effort going on right now at the State Fairgrounds. She will post a list of what is still needed (pet supplies and volunteers) at her Winterpast Farm FB page.

POND NICE AND FULL!

The pond is sure getting full at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC! Farmer Mary turned her inground pool into a pond years ago and she takes in unwanted turtles and fish. They are all very happy in such a big new home!

Bring along a slice of whole wheat bread or plain Cheerios or some romaine lettuce on your next farm visit and you can use Farmer Mary’s cool catapult to feed the turtles and fish.

Right now Farmer Mary is busy cleaning up lots of downed tree branches and she will be cleaning out soggy pens and hutches for the next few days as she begins to bring bunnies and guinea pigs out of the garage where small animals were being sheltered from what we thought would be a big storm. So very thankful that Florence didn’t head our way after all!

MORE HURRICANE BUDDIES

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone hosting “Hurricane Buddies”! These are small animals including bunnies and guinea pigs that kind local families and individuals picked up ahead of Florence from Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. Farmer Mary appreciates hosts sharing photos like this one of sweet BEDHEAD the guinea pig.

The animals will all enjoy a fun and safe stay away from the farm where Farmer Mary has other bunnies and guinea pigs and small animals safely (we hope!) put away in her garage. Her home dates from the 1730’s so is pretty secure!

Did you know that Farmer Mary rents animals (mostly bunnies, guinea pigs and hedgehogs) year round? Read more at “Pet Rental” at www.winterpast.org. Please SHARE with animal loving friends and help Farmer Mary recycle existing pets instead of just creating more!

Prayers please for the safety of all the animals remaining at Winterpast Farm in Wake Forest NC.

Farmer Mary will not post open farm dates or hours until Florence is gone. Please don’t text to ask when we will be open. We don’t know.
