Lisa Davis, a Canadian, crossed the border to visit her dying father two weeks ago. Now, with her new husband waiting for her in Baltimore, she's stuck in Toronto, the victim of strict, post-9/11 border regulations and a minor crime she committed six years ago. Faced with arrest if she tries to re-enter this country, Davis, 41, spends her days riding buses to and from diplomatic and government offices. She eats and sleeps at a women's shelter because she doesn't have money for a hotel.

Burleigh Manor, Ellicott City Not all the current residents of Burleigh Manor in Ellicott City appreciate the rich history and the meticulous restoration of this 1810 Federal-style brick home. That's because the inhabitants include horses, donkeys, pigs, chickens and a blind mule. Lawrence Cheskin, director of the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center, and his wife, Lisa Davis, bought the home, built by Revolutionary War Col. Rezin Hammond, in the summer of 2012 and began to convert the grounds and outbuildings into an animal sanctuary.

Just beyond their green pasture, something special has the attention of horses Vogue, Pagan and Brisk and their pony buddy Lotto. Workmen are putting the finishing touches on an array of solar panels, so that on this steamy summer day, Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary and Eco-Retreat goes off the grid. The electric meter has indeed stopped spinning, but that is likely the only thing that has ceased activity there since summer 2012, when the 10.5-acre Ellicott City property cemented its status as a nonprofit with a mission of providing care, a safe haven and a home for unwanted, neglected and abused livestock.

You come upon the members of the Cary family in the shade of a spreading oak, in the Baltimore County church yard where they have reposed for roughly a century. Moving from left to right, the first headstones belong to a brother and sister, Sydney and Jenny Cary. Then come the parents, Wilson Miles Cary and Jane Margaret Cary, followed by their eldest son, Wilson Miles Cary Jr. But it is the last grave, daughter Hetty's, that catches your eye as well as your imagination. One reason is the small Confederate battle flag poked in the grass.

Jenny stepped quickly off the trailer into her new home, striding over to Jack, who seemed interested in the fresh arrival. The two donkeys leaned their gray faces toward each other for an instant, then Jack followed her around a bit before Jenny trotted off, exploring the far ends of her fenced pasture. The gray-and-white Jerusalem donkey became the 18th livestock resident of the new Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary and Eco Retreat in Ellicott City, but that's if you don't count the tabby cat, Barnie.
