We met a true Sanctuary Star on the weekend. Mitch chose a plant-based diet from 4 years of age. Wanting to bring animals home to save them, mum Samantha introduced him to the idea of sponsorships and explained how he could help support sanctuaries that save animals. Last Christmas, Mitch asked that his main gift be a sponsorship for rescue pig Molly, and then started a list of all of the animals he planned to sponsor. For his 6th birthday earlier this year, he chose Bubbles and then started saving all of his money to come and meet them in real life!
When we told Bubbles and Molly what a great friend Mitch was; how proud he was to show everyone their pictures and how he spent hours reading all of the other stories online, they insisted we send Mitch and his family a special card on their behalf inviting him to an Open Day.
Bubbles and Molly were ecstatic to meet Mitch and his family. Even more so when they were treated to the perfect watermelon, hand-picked by Mitch himself the day before.
Mitch has big plans to open his own Sanctuary when he grows up. In the meantime, he will be one of our youngest volunteers as we show him the ropes and teach him all we know about the animals we rescue. We are honoured to know such an impressive young man. Thank you, Mitch, for not only loving animals, but for being their advocate.
