Meet Jenny Brown!

There's a new funster in Bisbee this week, and her name is Jenny Brown!



Not only is Jenny a blast to hang out with, but her story is incredible!

Jenny and her husband Doug rescue abused farm animals and give them a new home at their "Farm Animal Sanctuary" in Woodstock, New York.

Cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, rabbits and goats who have been abused, neglected and abandoned now have a happy home at Jenny and Doug's farm. They currently care for over 150 animals!



Jenny is partly bionic due to cancer as a child. She believes this experience opened her heart to the plight of all animals, and made her who she is today. Check out this incredible story from the New York Times, where Jenny helped her goat, Albie, who lost his leg due to neglect, receive a prosthetic leg.

You can help sponsor these animals for as little as ten dollars a month.
Something to think about....

Jenny is here to visit our dear friend, Kelly Galligan this week. Kelly is also very involved with the farm and is a board member. Like Jenny and Doug, Kelly is an animal-rights activist and a vegan.

I wonder what they are up to today...
On that note... I think I'll call Kelly and Jenny and see what kind of trouble we can get into!

Thanks for posting this awesome article about Jenny, Gretchen!

I met Jenny last night at a gathering here in Bisbee. She is awesome! Full of energy and an amazing woman. I hope to see her around more this week while she's here, as she's one of those unique souls I would love to have a lasting friendship with.
