Everyone at Noah's Ark said the same thing about Lucy during my visit, "we can't believe that she's been here for so long." It just breaks your heart.

If you or someone you know would like to meet Lucy please contact Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary at 815-962-2767 or visit 111 N 1st Street, Rockford, IL.
