The open house will give donors an opportunity to visit the 10-acre sanctuary, the news release points out. SDA supports several hundred animals that otherwise would have no chance of survival, the release adds; the nonprofit makes lifetime care for them possible.
“These animals are unadoptable because of physical, emotional and/or behavioral reasons,” the news release notes.
Along with the picnic, the open house will feature opportunities to feed the animals and visits to the catteries.
