This is the Saint Roch Gardens and Animal Sanctuary schedule every day of the week.

7- 8 AM: Dogs all go out in their respective yards and enclosures. Big dogs go in the big yard, little dogs in the smaller yard.

10 AM - 12 PM: Parrots move to their largest cages outdoors if weather allows. (Bolong, then Olive and Ravi, then Nanda then small birds). Feeding, treats and watering of all birds. Cleaning of bird cages if needed. Play time!

11 AM: Small dogs go out into the large enclosure to play with the big dogs for about two hours. All water dishes are cleaned and refilled. Cages and enclosures cleaned up as necessary.

4 - 6 PM: Small dogs return to large enclosure for free play time with big dogs for a couple of hours.

5 - 7 PM: Birds are brought in for the night if necessary.

5 - 7 PM: Brushing of each dog before coming into the house.

5 - 7 PM: All dogs come into the house. All dogs get a dog biscuit or treat.

8 - 9 PM: All Birds are covered for the night.

9 PM: All dogs are fed separately and sequestered for the night. This set up prevents fights over foodstuff and too much barking at night.

This is repeated every day, 7 days a week. No pet left behind is another one of my motto! Each dog gets some personal attention and is brushed daily. Hours vary with the seasons and in very hot weather the dogs are often inside from noon or one until sundown whereas in very cold days they may be in at sundown until morning. We stay flexible. Stormy weather also may bring the dogs inside as some are not happy with the thunder. Birds have indoor cages in winter and outdoor flight cages and aviaries on the screened porch in spring-summer.
