Happy New Year from all of our ARF canines and felines to all of the four leggeds in our community. Paws up to Bonnie, the beagle/Dalmatian mix, who made a brief appearance at ARF only to be scooped up and carried away to her forever home. Sadly, we say goodbye to Purdy, a female golden retriever, who will always be in our hearts.
At Idyllwild Arts Academy, we have begun to implement sustainable practices in many aspects of our campus life. Some of the greatest successes have occurred in our dining hall. We’ve become deliberate in sourcing our food locally, seasonally and in pursuit of organic produce. We have moved forward in establishing relationships with local farmers who can provide fresh, humanely raised and chemical free meat, poultry and eggs.
Merry Christmas to all the four-legged creatures from the ARF orphans. A special paws up to Lola, our Chihuahua, who gave a wink and a squeak, and won the hearts of two angels. Bazell, Grog, and Charlie were all reunited this week after going on adventures. And Buddha/Bubba the cat, finally came home to a much worried human.
