I can't believe I haven't posted about our visit to Wedrose Acres Animal Sanctuary yet. We met up the Sunday before last with folks from the local Vegan Meetup and others from Chicago. I was excited to hear about an animal sanctuary so close to home. One of the many things I miss about the DC is my beloved Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, it will always be one of my favorite places on the planet. I was a tad disappointed when I looked at their website because they don't have many "farmed" animals. I wanted the kids to be able to experience the animals many people eat in a peaceful loving environment. Despite this small let down, I was still excited to take the family to talk with the animals and commune with other vegans. I even blew off a family reunion to check out Wedrose Acres with like-minded people.
The kids had a fantastic time and asked if we could visit again. They really enjoyed meeting the animals and getting to know them. They also enjoyed the vegan meetup gang, as always. We were the only ones with kids, but we met Shawn and Shawn who are raising two veg children. We can't wait to get together with them again. Enough about the people, you can see a few of the furry friends we made.
The camel was amazingly big (and sweet)!
