    Stand up and be heard!
    June 2, 2009 The County of San Bernardino has granted us a hearing to (hopefully) allow us to open to the public!
    But we need strong public support from you. Can you attend the hearing with us? We would love to meet you and welcome you to the FW family.

    Oh, this was the family I saw on the Home building show!!! The remodeled it to make it better to open up and educate people. As well as get them a better house to live in, but they bettered the animals' living too and I really opened my heart to them!

    Isnt it terrible.. But I have a really good feeling about this... My Spidey sense's are tingling...

    This is something that I have always wanted to due , there is just a huge need for lovinsafe homes for these poor creatures..

    This is yet another reminder to folks to not help the exotic animal trade , if there is no demand then they will move, to something that does...

    Quote:A good portion of those animals are rehabbed and sent back to the wild. Many need medical attention, many suffer from malnutrition. Many will be there permanently due to the exotic animal trade. These people put their hearts and souls into this work.

    I've watched this family go from Extreme Makeover Home Edition, during the renovation, their entertainment business burned down, which they didn't show on TV. Then the County shut them down. The Board of Supervisors are people I am VERY familiar with because I work in transit and they sit on our Board too. Some very open minds and kind hearts are on that Board and I am very thankful that it only took one meeting for a unanimous vote to open the road.

    For those who don't know, this family and I are in the same town. The fact that the county wanted that road paved is ridiculous. Only the main streets in this town are paved. Which is 5 roads. The rest is dirt, and theirs is gravel!!!! Gravel is a huge upgrade around here.

    Power to the people!!!!!!!!
