Welcome to The Stuffed Animal Rescue Foundation!
Straight from the stuffed horse’s mouth... Here’s what’s afoot at The SARF Headquarters and beyond!
It is once again the time of year when I mow down the tall, weed-laden pasture of excuses to reveal the lush green field of stuffed animal-related hi-jinx that’s been gasping for air underneath.
Today, it is with great joy and relief that I reveal to you a portion of that pasty garden of creativity in the form of two projects, both of which require the help of YOUR eyeballs to beam metaphorical chlorophyll and sunshine in their directions to give them, symbolically speaking, the healthy tans they need to coax The SARF back from its extended hibernation.
Here they are:
1. There is now a Stuffed Animal-Related Historical Walking Tour of the North University Area, culminating in a visit to…
2. The Annual 37th Street Stuffed Animal Petting Zoo, 2016…
This morning, we have some very special guest writers helping out with our new batch of SAs!
We’re here at Austin Bat Cave’s Animal Writing Camp (partnering with SmartKids). Campers are hard at work interviewing SAs and writing their bios. We’ll be posting them soon!
Yes, The SARF is still in business. We’ve just been on hiatus, that’s all.
December was great. We sold things at Blue Genie, and we had our largest and most successful adoption campaign to date! In January, we delivered all of our adopted SAs to their new homes.
In February… we crashed.
And then it was May.
BUT we do have some exciting things planned, including a super fun partnership with Austin Bat Cave this summer, which is going to be AWESOME, and a very risky and potentially-controversial surgery involving two of our koala residents, a partnership with (or investigation by) PETSA (People For The Ethical Treatment of Stuffed Animals), and- from the deepest darkest depths of our most unreasonable predictions- maybe even a podcast!
So hang in there
