Within days of his birth, the little lamb had wound up on the side of the road completely alone. Rescuers believe that Max fell from a truck; he may have also been abandoned by an “owner” that did not want him.
Miraculously, he bore no signs of injury and managed to evade predators and oncoming traffic. Though unscathed physically, Max was alone, afraid, and vulnerable—but he would not be for very long. Thanks to our friends at Kings County Animal Services, who rescued Max and entrusted him in our care, this little lamb now has a big life ahead of him!
Max’s homecoming was a result of incredible teamwork and impeccable timing. Just two weeks prior, animal control had rescued 24 sheep from a Kings County, CA dairy. Having worked together on several rescues in the past, they asked us for help in taking on their care and in finding loving homes. These sheep stayed at the shelter until we gained legal custody—and while our staff was there visiting them one day, little Max arrived! He, too, would need a home—and thankfully, we had a place for him.
