Davidsonville Wildlife Sanctuary Closing

After four decades of taking in injured and abandoned animals, the Davidsonville Wildlife Sanctuary is preparing to close its doors.
The decision is being made after the death this month of the sanctuary's founder and director, Sandy Carr, who was 74.
The sanctuary on 10.5 acres off Beards Point Road has been home over the years to turkeys and pigs, raccoons and squirrels, peacocks and geese, burros and groundhogs — all brought to Carr, or simply left on her doorstep.
"She never turned an animal away," said David Carr, Sandy's son.
The sanctuary is finding homes for its remaining animals, which include elderly horses, a llama, a sheep, a goat, and a fox that is deaf and blind, according to Gregory Trigg, who has helped manage the sanctuary for the past four years.
