ANIMAL REFUGE IS HOME TO 60 DIFFERENT ANIMALS OF ALL SPECIES Date: 02/05/2014   Views: 0

If you thought different species of animals could only live together in harmony in Disney films then you were wrong.

Located in North Arkansas is the Rocky Ridge Refuge, a place of helping and healing for a wide variety of special needs animals that find their way there. Approximately 50-60 animals make their home there at any given time.

The refuge was started by Janice Wolf, a former veterinarian technician who set up the shelter to rescue and raise wildlife and sick pets after long caring for animals.

Sharing is caring. Especially when it’s a delicious watermelon.
