so what does a senior animal sanctuary need a.....

55 inch tv for?
yup...a donated 55 inch used sony tv arrived this weekend (thx laura and lana for facilitating this!)
and we now have a new animal enrichment program...book the entire MP room with big screen movie opportunities (my contribution today was a new DVD player) and share a few hours of special one on one, or two on two, or one on ten with our beloved saints.
cuddle up on the couch, or the big stuffy red chair(we will provide the popcorn and dog cookies or temptations treats for the cats, and the movies...or bring your own) with your favorite canine or felv feline saint and share some quiet, peaceful time watching a movie.
the room when booked is off limits to all traffic, intrusions and interruptions...we can access the medical room from the bunny area or the office from the new little porch....lock the door, order a pizza delivered if you want and shut out the world and just enjoy yourselves....encouraging the human and animal bond.
i love that MP room...so many wonderful possibilities and this is one of the best.
the room is available for booking for animal dates from 2 pm-5pm and from 6 pm-9pm, 7 days a week...(i do need an hour window between 5-6 to settle the rest of those guys to bed.)
just think of watching a movie for 2 whole wonderful hours with the rock or mama T curled up on your chest...can't you just feel how much they would love that? or share the couch with star wrapped over your legs...a blissful interlude for them from the constant activity and having to share around here.
this is one of my very best ideas yet...i just tried it out with frodo to get his approval for the new program and he says a resounding YES!...(altho he thinks he might not be happy getting sent to the office on someone else's date)
ok...who wants to sign up to date one of the saints?...or...you can even chose a blind date once in awhile and i will chose someone who needs some special time.
oh...and the program needs it's own special name....MAD? movie animal dates? ARE? animal relaxation enrichment? HAB? human animal bonding? HAPPY HOUR?...ideas please.
