It was such a great day! Loved hearing all the different rescue stories of the animals and getting to interact with them. They were all so cute with their own personalities. Was nice knowing they get to live out their lives there in peace.

visiting Edgars mission gives you a new prospective on farm animals. This farm saves animals that otherwise would be slauterered. It is heartwarming to see animals enjoying themselves.
