People who know me know I work with animals a lot. One of the projects closest to my heart is the Husky Romi  Rescue and Wolf Sanctuary in Reitz, South Africa. Named after Romi, an epic husky who tended to gather more huskies and people wherever he went. He is now at the Rainbow bridge but work in his name carries on.

A wonderful man called Larry has created a sanctuary for these beautiful animals and works tirelessly to home and rehabilitate them at the Husky Romi Rescue and Wolf Sanctuary. Every single contribution from equipment to fencing to food and blankets to money is plunged directly back into saving these animals.
