Host, Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian,  chats with Shelley Marcy, Vice President of “Friends for Life Forever Farm,” whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home senior and special needs companion animals. I’ll also welcome Julie Snyder, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Julie has a private therapy practice and works as a Director at Bridge of Hope. We’ll hear great animal rescue stories! Guest, Shelley Marcy has been with Friends for Life for 5 years. Since rescue has always been a part of her life, she was looking to work with an organization such as Friends For Life, where the mission was solid and adhered to. Shelly and her husband have a house and barnyard full of beautiful rescues! Located in North Carolina, the Friends for Life Forever Farm mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home senior and special needs companion animals, providing lifelong sanctuary if needed, for every single animal that enters the doors. Compassion for, and a commitment to, these special animals is paramount in their philosophy. Learn more: http://friendsforlifeforeverfarm.org/.
