I love you, Felix

On 20, Dec 2014 | In News, SA Updates, Spa News, The SARF Spa | By The S.A.R.F.

Uh-oh, I have a problem. I just have to be honest. I know we haven’t known each other for very long. And I know this is wrong. Very wrong! It goes against everything I’ve ever learned about doctor-patient relations, even from soap operas. But I can’t help it. I am in love. That’s right, Felix, I’m in love with you, and I don’t care what the people say. I don’t care what the stuffed animals say. I don’t care what your owner says (Okay, that’s not true. I do care very much what your owner says. I swear).

I love your tiny disproportionate ears and your stubby little tail, and the way your head slouches forward like you’re in dire need of militant Iyengar Yoga instructor.

I know you’ll just be here for a very short time, but that’s okay. We can cherish the time we do have together while you’re visiting the SARF Spa.

Oh, Felix, don’t be sad. Don’t stare down your snout at me with those little brown eyes of yours.

Come on, let’s go shopping for material for that new nose of yours. It’ll cheer us up.

What’s that? You want to give me another hug? Another one? Well, of course you can, Felix. That’s perfectly acceptable.

2014 37TH ST Petting Zoo Update!

On 15, Dec 2014 | In Available Animals, News | By The S.A.R.F.

Thank you to all the lovely folks who braved the drizzle last night to visit day two of this year’s Stuffed Animal Petting Zoo. The rain held off for a few hours before we had to call it a night.

For those of you who visited last night but didn’t get a chance to fill out an application, you can do so online. All of our petting zoo SAs are listed here!

Tonight, however, is supposed to be beautiful! So if you’re planning to attend, this would be a great night for stuffed animal-meeting and adoption-applying! We hope to see you! Lights go on at dark, around 6pm!

Petting Zoo 2014!

On 12, Dec 2014 | In News, SA Updates | By The S.A.R.F.

It’s that time again! The 37TH ST Petting Zoo will be (ahem) “soft opening” tonight (Friday). We’ll probably still be setting up, but there will at least be animals wandering about (when picked up). It gets dark so early these days! And you know how stuffed animals procrastinate! I mean, not all of them, of course. But still… We welcome your encouragement (meaning stopping by and telling us to hurry up).

SO, Super Mega First Awesome Night of petting zoo will be Saturday! Tomorrow! Then it will be out every night through next weekend, weather permitting…

We have plenty of SAs available for adoption… You’ll be seeing them on the website soon. Their bios are due in to me by no later than 1pm, and they lose a letter grade every 30 minutes thereafter.

See you soon!
