Readers of the Dispatch and our friends on Facebook may have seen the news, but we wanted to share it here as well: the Columbus Dispatch recently wrote a feature on Sunrise Sanctuary! A reporter and videographer came out to the sanctuary and spoke with director Mindy Mallet. More importantly, they got to meet the animals, learn their back stories, and witness the beauty of animals naturally living out the rest of their lives. They wrote about the experience in a piece called "Creature Comforts down on the farm." Click the link below to read the article and be sure to watch the video!
