I recently had an email from Mindy Mallet who heads Sunrise Sanctuary in Marysville. She helped us out by taking three kittens from the lady who had the forty-five outside kitties and needed to stay out of trouble with the health department by re-locating some of them. We are still working on that project, but that is another blog posting for another day. Rusty and Ruthie, two orange babies from the colony of forty-five, have settled in nicely.

Rusty and Ruthie are now living at Sunrise Sanctuary.


Mindy wanted me to tell everyone about an upcoming “FUNdraiser for the Animals” at Sunrise Sanctuary, which will help the rescued animals in the Sanctuary’s care. One hundred percent of all funds raised will go to help the animals.

The event, on Saturday, June 12, will feature:

LIVE music by Opossum, a silent auction of “really cool stuff, all reasonably priced,” $1 tickets for a 50/50 raffle, VEGAN food and drink included with tickets, a bake sale including Pattycake Bakery Goodies starting at 25 cents, kids activities, and a visit with the animals.

While you are there, you can also sign the Ohio farm animal petition if you haven’t done so yet.

The event will be held at 16730 Martin Welch Road in Marysville on Saturday, June 12 from 1-5 pm.  Mindy recommends that you wear comfortable outdoor attire that would be suitable for a farm. The cost to attend is a donation of $10 per person or $30 for the entire family. The deadline to order the tickets is June 3. 

You can purchase your tax deductible tickets at: SunriseSanctuary.org

If you cannot attend, but would like to send a donation, please do so, but make sure to mark that you are not coming, so they will not order extra food. Donations can be mailed to: Sunrise Sanctuary, 16730 Martin Welch Road, Marysville, Ohio 43040

Mindy is also looking for sponsors ($25 includes table), donations for the Silent Auction, and help at the event. If you can help in any way or have questions, please email: SunriseSanctuary@gmail.com

To be honest, I think it would be worth it to attend just to get some of the Pattycake Bakery goodies for a quarter. If you’ve never heard of Pattycake Bakery, check out their website: http://www.pattycakeveganbakery.com/ 

Pattycake Bakery is in Columbus and they offer delicious vegan cakes, cookies, and every other dessert imaginable–desserts that don’t harm animals in any way by using milk, butter, or other animal products. Christina brought us some of these extraordinary goodies for our Spaghetti Dinner in February and the lemon cupcake was out of this world.

Sunrise Sanctuary is a very unique place, because, not only do they help cats and dogs in need, but they also save farm animals. Ducks, chickens, pigs, cows, and horses, all call Sunrise Sanctuary home.

So please check out their web site, SunriseSanctuary.org, and help the animals by attending this very unique and special event.
