HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM KSTR!
The holiday season is fast approaching us and it’s now time to be thankful for what you have but also give from the heart to those in need. Here at KSTR, we solely run on the donations from YOU and we are forever grateful for every single one of you that have helped us over the years. We’ve grown so much and we will always need your support in helping to feed our animals.
Speaking of the animals,much thanks to past volunteer Martie Stothoff, who created a Thanksgiving Feast last year for the animals that we’ll continue to use for years to come. Check it out below!
Thanksgiving Day ~ 4 PM
Did you know that making a holiday special for animals in captivity is a very important part of enrichment in their lives and that is crucial to their mental health?
“Turkey” – They will get chicken but they will think it is Turkey! (Turkey is $8 a kilo here) The little monkeys will get it cut up, the big monkeys can get legs and hunks and stuff.
“Gravy” – Take the chicken broth and veggie broth and mix together. This is the “turkey stock.”
“Beans” – Cooked green beans!
“Stuffing” – We will make a bread stuffing with cooked celery, eggs and chicken broth for flavor.
“Mashed Potatoes” – Cooked potatoes and make their normal potato cubes (they won’t eat it mashed). Can always add gravy.
“Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows” – Or use yams. Don’t mash it because they won’t eat it, just keep it cubed. They will love this! We can put it in round containers to make it look like their pie.
Sounds good right?
Without your donations , KSTR would not be able to survive! Please donate or maybe even donate in someone’s name as a holiday gift: http://www.kidssavingtherainforest.org/makeadonation.php.htm
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you from all of us!
