This is Lover Boy, found abandoned in the streets of Apple Valley, he is an impressive scrapper. Even though his toenails were curled under and the growth on his penis huge he managed to elude animal control for quite sometime. When he was finally captured we swooped in, and took him to Dr. Jamie Velasco at Bear Valley Animal Hospital, where Lover Boy is still recuperating. You may also donate directly to Lover Boy at Bear Valley Animal Hospital

Sounds of Silent Spirits is a 501 C3 charity started over 10 years ago when our two founders, Deb Henggeler and Regene Fonville, saw the desperate need to secure a permanent sanctuary for injured Desert Tortoises. This endeavor expanded to become a home for unwanted, or abandoned reptiles, and birds. But we we never turn away a special needs animal. To date we have over 50 tortoise and turtle enclosures that mimic each specie’s natural habitat. Our other rescues consist of horses, goats, pigs, dogs, cats, and a variety of Birds. Although Sounds of Silent Spirits has accomplished a great deal we still have lots to complete at our Sanctuary in Lucerne Valley, CA. We need to build a few more aviaries, horse stalls, a winterized area for our hibernating Tortoises/Turtles, a new indoor snake and lizard habitat, and a new roof on the Barn. We encourage and rely on your donations of time, money, and animal supplies of all kinds.
