Do you raise hens or cows that you no longer are able to care for or no longer want? If so, we at ‘Til The Cows Come Home have the answer you were looking for! We have space at our beautiful sanctuary in Northern Rivers, NSW for ducks, geese and cows as permanent residents but take all formerly farmed animals who we can rehome. We love working with farmers who love animals, to take the weight off your hands and hearts by enabling all the animals they rear to have a happy life. If you would like to know more about our organisation and our values, this article outlines the highlights: https://tilthecowscomehome.org/regenerative-rescue/
When the time comes for these animals you reared to now retire or if there are animals on your property that are no longer needed, surrendering them to us is a great alternative to culling them. We believe that surrendering is the best option for the animals as it enables them to live a long and happy life, and allows you to give back to the animals who have been your bread and butter.
If you decide to surrender animals to us, the process is as simple as getting in touch and locking in a date. Our team of dedicated volunteers will graciously show up to your farm with a trailer ready to pick up the agreed animals. The trailer transports the animals to our Headquarters in Mullumbimby, New South Wales. Once the animals reach this destination our team will treat the animals for worms, lice and mites, and also receive a health check before being placed in their forever home. The process of transporting the animals is all undertaken by us if you wish or you can bring them to us, all we require you to do is make the logical decision to surrender the animals to us and lock in a date. It is a decision you will not regret as the animal’s welfare is our top priority. Farmers in the region have named us the Cow Resort and we’re proud of this.
These animals will be well looked after once they reach us, as they will either live out their lives on our sanctuary as permanent residents, will be adopted out to perfect families that align with the animals needs, or be adopted to permaculture farmers who let hens, calves and cows live a full and happy life on the land, helping them with the gardening. No eggs or milk production needed. Just animals.
Our organisation loves hearing from those in the farming industry, so please get in touch if you are ready to lock in a date that we can get these animals home.
