Poplar Spring Featured in a New Book!
Animal advocate Karen Dawn of DawnWatch.com includes a very touching tribute to Olivia the turkey (1999–2005) in her wonderful new book, Thanking the Monkey: Rethinking the Way We Treat Animals. Karen had an opportunity to visit Poplar Spring while she was in the D.C. area in 2000. She enjoyed meeting all of the animals, but it was her encounter with Olivia that made an especially profound impression. Not only was Karen inspired to become Olivia’s sponsor, but she also shared Olivia’s poignant story with listeners on Washington Post Radio. Thank you, Karen, for supporting Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary.
