Even though the thermometer is pulsing at 100 degrees, the animals at CAPE have their own way of finding the joy of living despite the heat.
Rafi, CAPE's rescued horse from Mexico, enjoys standing in the shade of an old oak tree grazing on dried grasses. He also likes to sneak into the hay barn to see what treats are within reach that he can nibble on.
Tabby, a goat born with a cleft palate, settles near the salt lick making sure it is within easy reach. In this heat, moving as little as possible is the name of the game.
Speaking of not moving very much, Rootie the pig basically just lolls around in his mud puddles all day. There is no happier pig than Rootie bathing under the hot sun.

“"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way."
