You can bring an animal guest speaker to your next virtual meeting and help animals in need. 

Video chats and virtual meetings are seeing a lot of use right now, and people are really having a good time with it. You can invite celebrities and goats to join you in these meetings, add a filter, or even turn yourself into a potato for the meeting.

Now, there's another option to add excitement to your meeting courtesy of Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary in Erie, Colorado. They decided to have a little fun, as well as find a way to raise some funds, and began offering the opportunity to have one of their farm animals make a live appearance in people’s video conferences.

There are over 100 animals at Luvin Arms to choose from, and for a modest fee, they will stop by your virtual hangout and meeting for about 15 minutes. You never know, Tony the Llama may be just the guy to solve that pending personnel issue. Tony, along with Felix the pig, Alfie the goat, Tito the cow, Gracie the hen, and Tuesday the rooster, will (at the very least) add some excitement to the meeting and generate a great conversation.

There are a few different options to choose from, including a personal meeting cameo and a business meeting cameo.

"We know that many people are feeling isolated and disconnected during this time," said Development and Marketing Coordinator Hanna Kircher in a press release. "We wanted to bring everyone some much-needed animal love - and what better way to do that than through virtual meetings that so many are doing every week."

"There’s something almost magical when we are connected with non-humans," adds Executive Director Shartrina White. "It not only helps us psychologically, but physically, too. Laughter, joy, love, and connection to nature and animals inspires us and helps us get through those difficult moments. Give the gift of joy! We are one virtual call away. A smile given to your co-workers, friends, and family is priceless. Help us fulfill our vision of connecting people to farmed animals, and help us bring educational programming to thousands of children."

The funds raised will go to helping support the abused and neglected farm animals that Luvin Arms cares for. The sanctuary, which runs on donations, was hit hard with both the recent snowstorms and the cancellation of all in-person events.

Those interested can visit luvinarms.org/meeting or call 720-515-8577. You can also check out the animals on the website and social media pages.
