This is indeed an awesome place. Viva was training to volunteer & foster, but some other things in life ended up taking her time away so she wasn't able to continue, but it's a place we have a huge passion for and hope to get back involved with some day.

This place is definitely worth a visit & they certainly could use $$$$ as well as volunteers to work at the center and foster critters at home until they can be returned to the wild.


Hi Anastasia, I do recall hearing that Viva enjoys taking care of a reptile or two! Dom is completely mad for wildlife and will make a great volunteer foster carer when I can squeeze in the time to take the training with him!

Hi! Nice to see you! I'm Frances Rivetti — lifestyle journalist, author, culture seeker
Welcome! I'm Frances. I'm a British/American lifestyle writer, born in a small, English market town at the border the Lincolnshire/Cambridgeshire Fens and for the last three decades, entrenched in the spectacular coastal region of Sonoma County in the San Francisco North Bay area. I am a freelance writer who enjoys sharing the best of the south county at the gateway to Sonoma Wine Country and other interesting, quirky, delicious and/or top flight destinations in Sonoma, Napa, Marin, SF and travel notes and tips elsewhere around the world. I've written two non-fiction books on the food and farming culture of southern Sonoma County and coastal West Marin: Fog Valley Crush and Fog Valley Winter. My first novel (also set in Northern California), Big Green Country, was published in 2019 and awarded Best Western Regional Fiction in the Independent Book Publishers Awards in 2020. My second novel, The House on Liberty Street is set in Petaluma, Sonoma County and will release in fall 2022. Please get in touch if you have any questions about my work or would like to commission me for an article.
