Wishing Well adopted sheep and cows rescued through Animal Alliance, so everyone was excited to see the animals in their new home. In 2011, 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.
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.
They are all living happy and healthy. We were all ecstatic to see them again, knowing they are safe in Brenda's care.
