Volunteering, Supporting Fluffy Cow Coffee, and the Impact of Eating Plant- forward

Amidst the chillier weather and during the holiday season we are drawn to celebrating the blessings of 2020 and now 2021!

We are so grateful for everyone's support and care.


VOLUNTEERS Small volunteer groups came on Saturday's in December to meet the animals, give some warm pets in the chillier mornings, and make sure each resident's home was in tip top shape. Through cuddles amongst volunteers, staff, and each other, we are all staying warm and grateful this holiday season.


VOLUNTEERING Making our resident's homes as cozy as possible is our top priority and it's even more fun when guests come for feeding and cleaning opportunities. You get to meet the animals, give treats, and see where they like to hang out.

We are always seeking volunteers who can help out for an hour or two any day of the week.

Feeding and cleaning opportunities are available, and a 4-wheel drive vehicle is required to make it up our road during the winter season. If you or someone you know wants to get involved, please reach out to us!

COFFEE WITH A PURPOSE

Last chance to stock up on Fluffy Cow Coffee! We are working with Fluffy Cow Coffee Company not only to support our own residents but to support the residents they take care of, too. Those of you who prefer decaf, don't worry they have you covered!

When you purchase Fluffy Cow Coffee through January 25th, a portion of the proceeds goes to Sage Mountain. Use the code "SageMntn" at check out!







VEG-X BLOG MENTION A new blog publication called Veg-X has highlighted the Sage Mountain in their first blog post. They feature Wilma Jean, one our our first residents, and mention a few of our plans in the works: to build a goat playground and a quarantine area for animals needing medical attention, or that are sick.


KEVIN

Kevin is known for his curiosity, lightheartedness, and constant search for cuddles. He is endlessly curious about what his fellow residents, staff, and volunteers are up to; never too shy to come up between (or during) tasks for pets.

Making an Impact with Your Diet

Incorporating more plant rich food into your diet is one of the most impactful contributions to positively impacting the effects of climate change. As stewards of this planet, we have an obligation to the land, it's creatures, and each other to conserve and protect. Photo from: The Daily Utah Chronicle Deforestation is a major cause of climate change and much of the land is cleared for animal agriculture. "Each hamburger that originates from animals raised on rainforest land destroys approximately 55 square feet of forest (Nicholas Coleman from The Daily Utah Chronicle).

Eating plant based or plant forward directly reduces water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and the way animals are treated on a mass scale. Many of our residents are surrendered or found after nearly escaping slaughter. Taking care of them, for us, represents the larger impact that compassion and plant-based thinking has on the world, the animals, and each other.
