I wanted to make better use of my free time as well as doing something active and helpful in the community. SALI’s mission statement has always stuck with me …“to honour, respect and protect the animal human bond” as well as “for people to improve the lives of animals, and for the animals to improve the lives of people”.

She is long and lean and moves about the fields with an eloquent finesse.

If a farm can have a Maître D, Elvis is undoubtedly the man, (er, cat) for the job. One who oversees all the going’s on while all the while eluding major tasks but assuming full responsibility. Elvis was the first SALI member to greet me on his own accord. He sauntered up in his perfectly tailored black and white tuxedo, looked in my eyes, rubbed my shins and in that moment knew I would be welcomed into the herd.
