Walter, Harrison & Norman Tucker

Walter (all black), Harrison (black face and white body) and Norman Tucker (full white stripe down his face) are our three male dairy steer. These calves were deemed useless by the dairy industry and were greatly mistreated by humans as they were prepared for slaughter before their rescue. Because of this mistreatment, they were initially very fearful of humans and tended to stick together in a threesome. However, due to the kindness and care from all the volunteers, these boys…

Larry & Archie

Larry, a LaMancha goat, has smaller ears and Archie, an Alpine goat, has bigger ears. When males are born in the dairy industry they are fattened until they can be sold for meat.

Now she has plenty all to herself… unless her best friend Libby beats her to it! Her most distinguishing characteristics are her charming personality and her brillo pad hair which is irresistible…

Libby (In Memoriam)

Liberty (Libby) our Chester White pig, was rescued from a backyard butcher and came to live at Spring Farm Sanctuary on the 4th of July. We found Libby living in horrible conditions – no food or water, prod marks all over her body, and with a high fever and bacterial infection. After her rescue, Libby lived life to the fullest! On hot days she enjoyed a sprinkling with the hose and playing in her own kiddie pool! She loved affection…
