What We Do

We Help
All Animals

We Help
All Animals

Farmed Animals

Any animal born on agriculture farms that are unwanted or considered waste and whose fate will otherwise result in death. We take in these animals, care for them in foster homes and adopt them out into families to live out their lives as companion animals.

Injured or Sick Animals

If an animal is born on a farm and develops a disability, injury or illness we will take in these animals to treat them in our foster homes to give them the best chance of survival or allow them to pass peacefully and safely.

Surrenders

Whether goats, horses, pigs, alpacas, sheep or even an entire herd, we help families rehome animal(s) that they can no longer care for. We help by finding the animals safe and loving new homes, as companion animals.

What do we mean by waste?

What do we mean by waste?

Dairy Calves

On dairy farms, male calves are often deemed as “waste” as soon as they are born as they do not produce milk and therefore come at a loss to a farm. They are separated from their mums shortly after being born with many not even getting to feed from them first. 

It’s general practice to either sell these calves on for their meat or to dispose of newborn male calves by using a cattle hammer to the head.

Hens From Egg Farms

Hens used for eggs, whether caged, free-range or organic, will decrease their laying capacity at 18 months old. They are automatically deemed “waste”. The hens are either gassed with CO2 in groups of 100s-1,000s. 

Then hens can live anywhere up to 7 year old but their fate is determined by their value.
