As a recent transplant to southern Oregon, my primary goal was to find someplace locally where I could “settle in,” meet like-minded people and begin making a positive impact in my new community. I couldn’t have found a more perfect place than Sanctuary One. The benefits are countless. Of course, there’s the simple joy that comes with giving — contributing to the happiness and well being of these rescued animals, and connecting with the folks who care for them. And as a dog walker here, I’m continuously rewarded by the sight of goofy drooling faces and madly wagging tails. What could be better than that? Not to mention the health benefits of working here: fresh air, lots of vitamin D and the opportunity to walk nearly nonstop for a few hours with exuberant four-footed companions. No gym membership required!
