FUNNY FARM
My Unexpected Life with 600 Rescue Animals
Laurie Zaleski
At The Funny Farm, one of the largest animal rescues in the Northeast, many different animals all live together and roam freely, and the odd and unlikely friendships that develop reveal lessons of kindness and cooperation.  Laurie Zaleski shares the inspiring story of how it all started in FUNNY FARM:  My Unexpected Life with 600 Rescue Animals (Feb. 22, St. Martin’s Press; $27.99)
At twenty-five, with just the clothes on her back and three small children in tow, Laurie’s mother Annie fled an abusive marriage, going from upper middle-class comfort to a one-bedroom shack in the woods. She scraped by with menial jobs, including cleaning cages at the local animal control, and soon began saving the homeless animals, bringing them to (and sometimes inside) the family’s home. 
Zaleski recounts a hardscrabble childhood, but also a rollicking, offbeat, boisterous life, loaded with more fun and adventures than anyone she knew, including chasing a runaway stallion down a four-lane highway in a car, and taking a cow to school for show-and-tell. When the car broke down, Laurie’s mom even used a horse to run errands or go to her job, “parking” her in the parking lot, with a feedbag and a couple of apples.
Laurie swore as a child that she’d one day buy her mom a farm of her own, so she could retire and do nothing but save animals.  Years later, as a successful businesswoman, she did just that, buying a 15-acre farmstead deep in the New Jersey woods
Funny Farm facts:
·       Residents  include pigs, goats, horses, dogs, cats, chickens, an emu and a skunk. 
·       Most animals roam free and interact with other species, resulting in many odd and unlikely friendships
·       Laurie’s Kindness Program offers anti-bullying and special needs programs in schools, where her friendly animals show how different species interact and can get along.  
·       Over 100,000 visitors are welcomed each year, free of charge.
·       Voted one of the Top 10 places to visit in New Jersey and Best Charitable Organization
A rescue story on many levels, FUNNY FARM is a daughter’s story of promises kept, dreams fulfilled, and animals lost and found. And it's the story of the brave, incredible, and adorable animals who found a home at the Funny Farm, and who inspire thousands of visitors each year.
LAURIE ZALESKI is the founder of the Funny Farm, a charitable organization located in Mizpah, New Jersey. Since 2000, the farm has welcomed all kinds of rescue animals. Laurie is also the founder, president and CEO of Art-Z Graphics. She has been named a New Jersey Heartland Hero, is listed in the 2019 Who’s Who of Professional Women, and has received numerous awards and acknowledgements for her work to save animals and educate the public about animal abuse.

Ellie Laks-Weiner, author of My Gentle Barn, said “I found myself up till much later at night than was good for me, just to read one more chapter. I laughed, I cried, I related in a very deep way, and most of all, I fell in love with Laurie, her mom, and her whole family, both human and non. Funny Farm was moving, inspiring, honest, and refreshingly real. I loved every page!”

Ellen Stimson, author of Mud Season and Good Grief, called the book "the satisfying tumultuous story of one mama who understood that a messy life crowded with love and animals is plenty good enough.  Laurie Zaleski writes in vivid unsentimental language, equal parts passion and grit."

Wild Lands Wild Horses


“Wild Lands Wild Horses” is an exploratory docu-series traveling across 12 states within 150M+ acres of public lands.

In the docu-series Wild Lands Wild Horses, beautiful cinematography that takes place in the wild is woven into exclusive conversations with scientists, ranchers, government officials, and wildlife advocates, who — despite their differences — all share the same goal:

TO KEEP THE WEST WILD.

"Wild Lands Wild Horses"

America’s wild horses are in crisis.

For centuries horses have ploughed our fields and carried us into battle. Caught in the crossfire over land use rights and a shrinking wild landscape, America’s wild horses are struggling to survive.

Some still roam wild, but those thousands that have been gathered are held in government contracted facilities with little hope for adoption.

150 million acres of western public lands belong to all of us, and we can do right by its wildlife. But the issues are complex, and won’t be solved by shouting on social media.

Join wildlife photographers Jamie Baldanza and Deb Lee Carson on their mission to document America’s most elusive herds of wild horses and examine their politically complicated lives.

LAND & HORSES

Each episode of Wild Lands Wild Horses tells the story of a native herd, their personalities, and the human factors that weigh on their lives. 

Understanding the history of the land, behavior, and social structure of wild herds is crucial in finding a solution.

ADOPTION STORIES

Adoption is a second chance for horses rounded up by the government. Each episode of Wild Lands Wild Horses profiles a once-wild horse that has been adopted by a sanctuary, a loving home, or equine therapy programs.

CONVERSATIONS

Wild Lands, Wild Horses is not here to preach.

Interviews with ranchers, advocates, scientists, government employees, and politicians combine to tell an honest story about the complexities of the modern American West, and the threats that face the remaining population of wild horses.



WHERE WILL WE GO IN THE SERIES?

Screen Shot 2020-02-15 at 10.06.57 AM.pnghttps://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content

We will be visiting California, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, and North Dakota!




WHY AM I DOING THIS? 

Living in New Jersey, an area of the United States with very little experience or positive exposure to America’s wild horses, I realized that they are desperately in need of more engaging and constructive publicity. In the face of their ongoing battles to stay on the range and for those 45,000 wild horses who are in need of adoptive homes, my goal with "Wild Lands. Wild Horses." is to heighten America’s awareness through truth and in-film documentation. I hope to save our iconic western heritage, and offer solutions that will work for all special interest groups involved in our public lands.

What is Dinovite for Dogs?  Also formulated for Cats & horses as well

 
Dinovite for Dogs is a nutritional supplement made with whole food ingredients that contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes, direct fed microbials and fatty acids that can be missing from your dog’s diet. These can help support the immune system, digestive function, healthy skin and a shiny coat!
