This week required shutdown happened in the State of Wisconsin where Home for Life® is located on forty acres on the Apple River in Star Prairie, Wisconsin. With 200 animals who are counting on us to care for them, the essential services of Home for Life® go on for our vulnerable cats and dogs, and our sanctuary will not be closing. We are grateful to our small staff of dedicated employees who realize how absolutely dependent our cats and dogs and mascots, our parrots Candy and Penelope and tortoise Goliath, are now more than ever with the world thrown into an uproar. These were the animals who were passed over for adoption and foster programs and had no place to turn when they came to us - they needed that third chance and that's what Home for Life®, the third door in animal welfare, provided to them when their lives hung in the balance.
