Can you welcome Mars & Freddo  into your home?

Mars and Freddo were born into this world as the byproduct of their mother’s milk production – their life worth nothing more.  

Just like humans, cows need to give birth to produce milk. As a result, each year in Australia, over 400,000 calves are born on dairy farms and are deemed as “waste” or “surplus”.  

Male calves are often “disposed of” on the farm or sent on a truck to a slaughterhouse within the first few weeks of their life, as they offer little financial gain to a farmer as they cannot be used for future breeding or milk production.  

This is the heartbreaking reality thousands of calves face each day on dairy farms across Australia.  

Mars and Freddo are lucky to now be safe in short-term foster care. Thanks to the generosity of donors, two more precious lives have now been spared. 

 Now healthy and feeling cared for, Mars and Freddo are ready to find their forever home where they will be loved as companions, not commodities.  

The ideal home for Mars and Freddo is one that has good fencing to keep them secure, a shelter to keep them warm and dry, paddocks of pasture to graze upon and a family to give them the love they deserve. 

Meet Mars and Freddo, a delightful duo of calf companions! They make an adorable pair, bonded by their shared love for milk, food, and playful energy. 

Mars, the older of the two, is an easygoing soul who cherishes his milk and isn’t shy when it comes to dinnertime. There’s a cuddly side of him that he is starting to show, as he begins to seek human affection more.  

Freddo may be the younger, but he holds the dance floor with his playful prances and energy towards life. It’s not uncommon to find him running around the paddock. Freddo is a little shy around people but shows signs of feeling more comfortable every day, especially if it involves a yummy treat or scratches!

Together, Mars and Freddo make a perfect pair. Their strong health and shared enthusiasm for life make them a positive presence in any family.  

Bring these two buddies into your family, and they’ll be sure to bring you joy with their distinctive personalities.
