Residents visit Whispering Rise Farm & Animal Sanctuary
Residents of The Village at Shrewsbury had the opportunity to meet potbelly pigs at Whispering Rise Farm & Animal Sanctuary (WRFAS). WRFAS has a mission “to provide sanctuary for surrendered and rescued potbelly pigs who are products of the pet pig trade and to educate the public about them,” according to its website. The six-acre sanctuary is home to more than 60 pigs and relies on volunteers to help feed and maintain the property.
Residents celebrate through a variety of activities
The Village at Shrewsbury Life Enrichment team is offering a modified socially distanced life enrichment schedule. Check out what activities have been offered so far.
