Deborah Blum with Mocha, Founder and Director at Goatlandia Sanctuary. Santa Rosa, CA.
I have always loved animals for so many reasons; for their ability to love unconditionally and live in the moment, for their gentle nature, and for their playful curiousity. After having moved up to Santa Rosa from the city and creating a life with animals, I realized just how wonderful and unique animals are, not only just dogs and cats. It gave me a huge appreciation for all beings. And to be honest, I find being around animals to be extremely therapeutic. I often think that they rescue me as much as I rescue them.
