Little Bear, a Holstein calf, arrived at the Rescue in late February, 2018. He was a 'veal' calf, being raised in a crate, to be slaughtered at a few months of age. Bear is very smart, a whiz at untying shoe laces! He is so sweet, and happy to be able to run around and kick up his heels, something he'd never had the opportunity to do before. Thank you to the lovely people who saved his life and brought him to us.
We have 7 pigs at the Rescue: Eric, Petunia and Tulip, and our latest additions Spot, Stella, Penny and Boris. Harold and Gimper's mother, Berkie, passed away a couple of years ago, as did Rocky. Pansy passed away in the fall of 2015. Berkie was a Large Black/Berkshire cross and Rocky and Pansy were spotted, except that Rocky was smaller because he was a runt. Sadly we lost both Gimper and Harold in 2016.
Thank you to the So family for sponsoring Tulip.
The Rescue is home to a variety of poultry. We have chickens, ducks, a turkey and a goose. Some of our chickens are rescues - chickens are often culled before they are a year old because their egg production slows down. Because the live their entire short lives in small cages, once they come to the Rescue they have to learn how to roost and scratch and even how to walk properly. One of our turkeys was to be someone's Thanksgiving dinner through an auction but the winning bidders surrendered her to us instead!
