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!

SA Medical Clinic Thursday

On 11, Nov 2014 | In News | By The S.A.R.F.

The SARF Spa will be conducting stuffed animal checkups at the Austin Toybrary this Thursday morning. SA arthritis problems with the onset of cold weather? Are your SA’s immunizations up-to-date? Flu shot? I’ll bring the imagination and SA bandaids.

And if your SA has a more ‘structural’ ailment, bring him or her in for an evaluation/estimate. We can have them looking and feeling great for the holidays.

SA / LA Economics

On 12, Sep 2014 | In News | By The S.A.R.F.

This NPR story is quite interesting, especially as it relates to The SARF… Live Animal zoos do seem to share many of the same ethical concerns as The Stuffed Animal Rescue Foundation (as you know, no money is ever exchanged in the stuffed animal adoption process). Read more…
