Forest Ranch woman hopes to save animal sanctuary from foreclosure

A Forest Ranch woman is hoping to save her animal sanctuary with an idea.

A Forest Ranch woman is hoping to save her animal sanctuary with an idea. Victoria Rugg has lived in Forest Ranch for a decade.  She says she never turns away an animal-in-need, and has collected a menagerie of chickens, roosters, ducks, geese, a turkey, peacock, dog, and tortoise.  Rugg says she lives on social security, and her part-time job as newspaper delivery driver for the Chico ER.  But this year, Rugg says she can't afford her property taxes.  She says she plans to put together a tabletop book made up of pets, accompanied by a short story about each animal.  She's hoping people will support her by sending in $8, plus a photo and a short story.  She plans to release the book on Valentine's Day, 2018.  If you would like to contribute to her book, mail a check, photo, and story to:

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
