We now have a location for this wonderful animal community center!
This meetup launched over six months ago under the impression the location was settled and just about ready for action! Sadly the location fell through and it’s taken this long to find a new place. But we have one! A permanent one and remodeling is underway to get it open soon.
It will take a bit more time to get it going, so in the meantime I’m going to host classes in the basement of my home, which is on the same property. The end result is still the same: a community for people to learn and gather for the animals.
If you want to participate in any of the construction or land work parties, please let me know. I’ll be posting work parties as events so you can keep an eye on that as well.
If you or someone you know has a class to teach that benefits animals and would consider teaching it at One Love, please contact me. I really want new teachers, new classes, new ideas!
And lastly, if any of the classes already listed are of interest to you, sign up – I’d love to see you!
The original intent still holds true:
For anyone who loves an animal or wants to help one! This Meetup is the place to be when the new One Love Animal Center opens its doors and starts offering classes and community gathering events!! Right now it's still under wraps, the worker-people are still hammering, painting, cleaning and doing whatever it takes to be ready to support the community in helping to create a better life for any or all animals. Every class or event held at the OLAC will help an animal in some way - it might be direct, such as animal massage - or it might be indirect, like learning how to support backyard wildlife. Join the Meetup now and get information on how to get involved from the very beginning - or just to get the list of classes when they first come out!
Some of the possible classes being offered in the next year:
Wildlife education and support
Energy healing – including technologies
Compassion fatigue for rescuers
Spiritual/prayer for animals
General animal care – for pets, farm, or wild animals
Nutrition for animals
Plant-based nutrition for people, cooking classes
Professional CEUs for Vet techs, etc.
Do you have certain classes you want to take OR teach? Let us know!!!
In addition to the classes – the OLAC is a place of community, and as such you'll find other activities going on such as:
Summer movies on the lawn
Community night – if there is no class scheduled, then games, conversation, potluck
