Spike

Spike

Spike, Jen Kepler’s green iguana, taught his family so many life lessons including how to potty train your iguana! Spike was well known in the community attending softball games with his family, taking part in a girl scout gold award project, a high school senior project, and sat often on the front lawn greeting the neighbors, local children, the ice cream man, and people who drove by, causing frequent double takes. Spike lived to the ripe age of 15 and continues to occupy a huge portion of the family’s hearts. Remembrance donation by Judy Wolfe, October 2014.

Dorian Grey

Dorian Grey

Dorian Grey was born in a small barn on the land of one of our grantees, The Kerulos Center in southern Oregon, whose director G.A. Bradshaw writes: Their mother, Sara, had been abandoned. When Dorian and his two sisters, Mei Mei and Eva, finally emerged as stumbling kittens, they all joined the rest of the family – Centa, Fritzi, Pir and Margot Dogs, Panama Parrot, Nikki, Scooter, and Ingeborg Felines, and the many birds,deer, skunks and other wildlife who live here. Dorian’s nickname, Candy Cat, speaks to his sweet, sweet nature and beautiful open heart. He will be cherished, loved and remembered forever. October 2014.
