This year Farm Sanctuary (www.farmsanctuary.org), a farm animal rescue and protection organization, is hoping you’ll skip the flowers and Adopt A Farm Animal instead! Sponsoring a rescued cow, pig, sheep, goat, or chicken who resides at one of Farm Sanctuary’s three shelters in New York and California is an original way to show you care.
Check out “love goats” Randy & Elle, who are just waiting to be “adopted,” in the photo at right.
When Elle was rescued from a backyard butcher in 2009, she was extremely malnourished… and very pregnant. She received the care that she needed to deliver two healthy, beautiful babies.
A few months later, Randy joined the herd at the Southern California Shelter after being rescued from severe neglect. Randy and Elle found each other, and love bloomed. Randy has adopted Elle’s kids as his own, and now they live together as a loving family.
