News like this makes my heart smile big time. On Thursday Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary in Rockford announced that they received an amazing gift from a very special guardian angel.

 

A beautiful angel, Audre, has gifted Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary $309,000. A loving note can barely say all that we feel on this magical day. Thank you for such an incredible gift. <3

According to Noah's Ark,  this wonderful woman, who only wanted to be known as Audre, passed away last year. One of her final wishes was to give Noah's Ark  $309,000, which her brother brought to the shelter this week. This money will make such a difference in the lives of so many animals in need, and Noah's Ark has said that they intend to use it towards a new transportation van for the animals.

From the proud mama of two Noah's Ark fur babies, I thank you Audre. Thank you for helping this amazing shelter continue to give so many animals a second chance at life and love, and for keeping "the boat afloat."
