Thanks to our wonderful supporters, we have GREAT NEWS!!!

When we rescued 32 sheep from the University of Guelph, we rented a barn to house them.  The sheep shared the barn with 8 bulls and 1 cow, owned by an absentee farmer and destined for slaughter.  Back in July, we e-mailed our supporters, asking for help finding a farm sanctuary for these nine cattle.

The cattle lived ankle deep in their own feces and were without clean water.  Siobhan Poole, of Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary, who was taking care of our sheep, was devastated by their condition and began to care for the poor guys.  She fell in love with these nine gentle giants and could not face their fate.  So we worked together to find them homes.

On October 14, our nine beloved cows and the final five sheep were moved to their permanent loving home, the Wishing Well Sanctuary, run by Brenda Thomas.  Their journey went smoothly and everyone is doing well.  Brenda is thrilled.  Without her generosity and commitment, this rescue would not have been possible.  And without Siobhan’s tireless work, we could not have saved so many farm animal lives.

Thanks to Jo-Anne McArthur, we have this beautiful photo of one of our boys, Allastair, enjoying his new home.
