What we can do, however, is make every rescue count.
That’s because we owe it to farm animals like Dale — a young bull who narrowly avoided slaughter this summer — to ensure that they never again experience the horrors they once faced. Once in our care, we make a promise to these animals to help them live the happy, peaceful lives they deserve, whether at one of our shelters or in a loving adoptive home.
We cannot do this work alone. Dale, for example, came to Farm Sanctuary as a temporary stop on the way to his forever home at Sage Mountain, a member of our Farm Animal Adoption Network (FAAN). The efforts of FAAN members are a vital part of our rescue and sanctuary work; they help us place more farm animals in loving forever homes, while freeing up the space and resources to help those who need us most. And in Dale’s case, we knew that Sage Mountain was perfectly suited to his needs.
