Lemurs and Harleys – Oh My!

Lemurs and Harleys – Oh My!

It’s not every day that a baby lynx walks into the Studio.  Said lynx was being held by one of the ladies who works at Ringtail Ranch and Rescue (Check out one of the older blog entries to read about them.)

A couple of effective spokespeople for the Ringtail Ranch and Rescue open house on June 20th. Just try and say no to those faces.

We won’t be able to attend their open house this year, as we’re booked up solid for June 20th.  Fortunately we were able to attend an event at Clare’s Harley-Davidson in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Apparently it’s a weekly gathering with a pig roast, a live band and the chance to raise money for assorted charities supported by different clubs.

Okay, so I expected this.

I pulled up on York Road, not knowing what to expect.

 

I was pretty blown away by the turnout and how friendly everyone was.  And of course, the reactions to the lemurs and the rest of their pals from the Ranch, was positive to say the least.Harleys and Lemurs Nerses Photo (8)

 

Ringtail Ranch and Rescue was raising funds and awareness for a new lemur.  They were looking to collect eight thousand dollars in order to help save a lemur from being shipped overseas.  Seeing as they are one of the most endangered mammals on the planet, it’s a more than worthy cause.  Once people got to interact with these sweet, inquisitive animals, they became a popular attraction.

 

But the critters weren’t the only thing going on.

That’s the great thing about this job, getting invitations to events you never even knew were happening.

An unlikely pair, but I think it works.
