Thank the Turkeys Event at Animal Place

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the wonderful ‘Thank the Turkeys’ event at Animal Place. I had such a great time 🙂

Here’s a little video I put together about the animals I met that day.

Visitors had the chance to visit the animals and spend some time with them.

I couldn’t resist but to upload some more of my photos.

Animal Care Director Jamie London made sure all animals were well taken care of and happy 🙂DSCN0978

The pigs did what they know to do best – they so deserve it!! DSCN0985

There was a wonderful silent auction with amazing paintings and other fun prizes!

Benjamin is such a huge pig and I must admit I was a little scared of his size – and his eyes..IMGP4790
