In Memoriam

Cobina Wright Beaudette

August 14th 1921- September 1, 2011

Cobina spent her life loving and rescuing animals. She was the perfect example of unconditional love- which she learned from almost a century having animals

in her life and is now in heaven with all her beloved pets. She made sure her property would always be

Happy Endings Sanctuary, so that we may continue to help the homeless animals of our beautiful valley she loved so much. She also loved children, who come here to learn and have a chance to be a part of each animal's success story. We are so grateful for her amazing mentoring, love, kindness and compassion. She will be terribly missed but she will always be our guardian angel.

KC Sanctuary Dog Extraordinaire


We had to put our oldest and most wonderful Sanctuary dog  K.C. to sleep recently. Her body shut down along with her legs. She is running again, pain free and I know she was grateful she had people who loved her, doted over her, didn't care if she was deaf, half blind, incontinent, had dementia, needed to eat four times a day and gave her a forever home. You came a long way from the starving, beaten dog a year ago. Cheers old girlie! You were sure loved and you will be missed!!



When she first came to us as a senior lady, she was extremely thin, but she was one of the sweetest, most well behaved dogs you could ever ask for. She spent the remainder of her life with her foster dad, David and beautiful German Shepherd named Cyrus. She spent her days with love and dignity on 100 acres, going for walks daily and having her every whim catered to! We are honored to have been able to make your life whole again and we will  never forget your big heart and your willingness to forgive. You will live in our hearts forever! Thank you David, you are extraordinary!

Rose She was wonderful, kind, gentle, camera shy soul who came to live with us after her owner could no longer afford to keep her. She made a remarkable recovery in the year that she was with us and we are so very happy to say that she finally got her dream life! Thank you Dr. Phoebe, Dr. Lisa, Buffy and Rick for helping us make her dreams come true. Her sweet and welcoming nicker will be missed and she will be in our hearts forever!

Miracle She was loved and pampered. A far cry from the emaciated old girl who wobbled down our driveway 5 years ago. Thank you Walela, Phoebe, Doug, and Platinum for giving 5 years of love and serenity to a very deserving, sweet old girl. We will miss her greatly! She will live in our hearts forever!
Our precious little Sunny Bunny, how many children did he bring joy and love to… How many new horses came to live here, did he befriend and showed them the ropes. He was our go to pony for very small children who would be intimidated by large horses. His love and compassion for everything and everybody will not be out done ever. I want to thank our precious Godmother Phoebe, and her most loving and trusted assistant Elise, Joe Brown for working on feet as hard as concrete while sitting on the ground with his back hurting trying to make him more comfortable, Dr Ian and his band of loving humans, Uncle Dougie for his magic hands, Juli his first mom for giving him the opportunity to be a blessing to so many and all my volunteers who have lovingly washed and groomed him to be the outstanding pony that he was. I want to thank Tammy for always being there when we need her,and for her loving patience to clean him at his worst and always remembering him with peanuts when he couldn't have a regular cookies. You'll never be forgotten little man, and we will never forget your love and loyalty to your sister Classy. Also thank you to Aunt Barbara next-door for going the extra mile for him as well.
Run free, pain-free through lush green hills of rainbow bridge and I will see you again my darling little buddy. I will ALWAYS love you!!!!
