Noted and thank you Simone. What an inspiration she is. I hope the local community including the school children all know about her wonderful work; she's a great role model.

What a wonderful lady. Full power to Martha and her co workers for thier dedication. We need so many more people like her in this world of ours. We have local people who do the same and I have adopted many of my babies through them over the years. Rescued animals are so rewarding. They come to you with so many hang ups and it is such a joy to see them over come these problems. All it takes is loads of love, patience and understanding.
