Good News: Farm Takes Care of Homeless Animals While Teaching Kids!
The Northern California wildfires have been nothing short of devastating over the last week. So here is a story of people helping each other and animals!
These Napa Valley Vintage High School students are learning how to run a farm, and save the animals orphaned by the wildfires. They’ve been taking long shifts and sleeping in their cars at the farm to take care the over 150 animals there. They’ve made improvised pens out of metal pipes and wire. Most of the animals come from farms around the area and a lot of them the students and their teacher, Emmalee Casillas, have to go rescue themselves using a truck and trailer! That’s some Operation Dumbo Drop levels of animal husbandry!
I love animals (more than most people) so this story really hit close to home for me. Also, any opportunity to shape kids to become better, more responsible adults is a plus.
