Starting the year off right at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary
What to expect in 2020
We’re excited for the near year (and new decade) here at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary! Because of your generous support at the end of 2019, we were able to raise enough money for all of our 2020 projects. New this year, we will be adding lights to our barn for the volunteers who provide care daily for our animals. We are also building a new house for our turkeys.
Our turkeys are looking forward to their new home -one of the many improvements happening at Wildwood in 2020!
The special needs at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary
At Wildwood Farm Sanctuary we provide more than food and shelter to the 100+ animals who call us home. Because of the realities of what brought these animals to our barn doors, in many cases we also provide ongoing veterinary treatment.
Libby came to us last year after being surrendered from a slaughterhouse in Utah a week before Thanksgiving.
Libby receiving her weekly laser therapy for chronic pain due to her time in a factory farm.
While she was rescued from the dinner table, she did not avoid the cruel procedures that are standard practice on turkey factory farms- the ends of her toes and her beak were removed without any anesthesia or pain medication. Because of this, she is unable to balance correctly and has sores and swollen feet. We bring her to the veterinary clinic for laser therapy which helps her inflammation and provides pain relief. She absolutely loves these trips to the veterinarian — not only because she receives treatment but also because she gets so much TLC from the veterinary staff.
Our founder is a credentialed veterinary technician, which helps cover some of the cost for Libby and the other animals on our farm. Regardless, veterinary care does remain a high cost at our sanctuary, and we’re so grateful for your support which makes it possible for us to provide care to Libby and the 100+ animals on our farm.
A greener 2020
At Wildwood, we believe that all animals deserve to be treated humanely and with dignity, which is why we are a haven for farm animals and wildlife alike. In addition to caring for the farm animals on our sanctuary, we protect our property’s native plants, wetlands, woodlands and wild animals.
A vegan lifestyle is one of the most eco-friendly changes you can make to shrink your footprint on the planet. We want to provide you with other ideas on how you can jumpstart your greener 2020:
