Charlotte – $50/month
Hi, my name is Charlotte and I have an incredible story to tell you. My story is one of deep sorrow, but also one of amazing compassion. My story starts before I was even born. Sadly, I am a type of cow that is bred to be eaten. One day, a man was called to kill my mom, so that people could eat her. After this man killed my mom, he realized she was pregnant with me. The man felt so terrible, that he performed an operation on my mom so I could be born. For the first two weeks of my life this man kept me at his house and looked after me. But he knew he could not keep me forever, as I would get too big to live in his house, so he reached out to Wildwood Farm Sanctuary to ask if I could live there.
The nice people at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary welcomed me with open arms and looked after me around the clock, feeding me milk and making sure I was warm and comfortable. I really missed not having my mom, but I knew I was lucky to live with such kind people, who promised they would never eat me and would always look after me. I grew very fast and loved to play with my human friends. I also soon made friends with the other animals at the sanctuary, including goats, sheep and alpacas. I can even be seen sometimes chatting over the fence to the geese.
While the start of my life was tragically sad, I now know I am going to have a long and happy life at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary. I am however looking for some people to sponsor me. You see, I eat a lot, and by being my sponsor, you can help provide my feed as well as anything else I may need along the way. You will not only be helping me, but also all of my new friends, who have been so welcoming to me. Will you please consider being my sponsor?
Dolly – $25/month
Hi, my name is Dolly and I am one of the older residents at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary. I have not been keeping very good track of my age, but I think I am about 10 years old. Before coming to live at the sanctuary, I did not have a very good life. All I knew was neglect. I was never looked after properly, but thankfully one day, a group of people came and took me and my friends away from where we were living. We were so scared. We did not know what was happening. Were we going to be taken somewhere worse to live?
My best friend Doc and I stuck together, and before we knew it, we arrived at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary. The nice lady who runs the sanctuary took Doc and I straight to see the vet. I was so sick from neglect that the vet thought I should be put to sleep. The nice lady said “no way” and she promised me she would do all she could to look after me. Doc and I recovered well from our terrible past and learned what it was like to be looked after and to live in a place where people are kind and gave us everything we needed.
Sadly, Doc passed away from a brain tumor a while ago, and while I miss him a lot, I have made new friends and am happy with my life now. I get lots of treats and the humans love me. What else could I ask for? I do suffer from pretty bad arthritis, but am given medicine to help me feel better. By sponsoring me, you will help take care of me for the rest of my life, as well as all my new friends at the sanctuary. Please help me live my retirement being cared for by becoming my sponsor.
Doodle – $25/month
Hello, my name is Doodle and I am one of the smallest goats at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary. I do not remember much from my early life, but I sure do remember how I came to live at the sanctuary. I was dumped on the streets in a town called Beaverton. It was pretty scary being out in the big world all by myself and it was really hard to find something to eat. People were not mean to me thankfully, and some people fed me human food like French fries. I thought they were pretty tasty, but I have since learned that is what is called “junk food”, meaning it is not good for humans, let alone a little goat.
Thankfully, someone called Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, and they opened their gates to me and I finally had a place to call home. It was a little strange at first being around other goats and having to eat hay, but I soon adjusted and I now love living here. I do sometimes forget I am a goat though and try and sneak out the gate to be with the humans.
I really don’t know what would have become of me if I had not come to live at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary. I am sure I could not have survived on the streets for too much longer, and I have no doubt a diet of that “junk food” would not have been good for me in the long term. I am safe now, but I would like to ask you if you would consider being my sponsor? By being my sponsor, you will ensure I get all the care I need for the rest of my life, and you will also help the other goats and animals at the sanctuary receive the care they need too.
Belle – $15/month
Hi, my name is Belle, and they tell me that I was bred to be a commercial turkey. I am not really sure what that means, but I am told I am very lucky to have not ended up the way most commercial turkey’s do. I came to live at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary after I was found abandoned behind a store on Christmas Eve. The person who found me reached out to the kind humans at the sanctuary, and they came and took me home on Christmas Day.
I am very happy living at the sanctuary, but one thing I am not very happy about is the restricted diet I am on. I am told that it is because I was bed to be constantly hungry, so that I would overeat and grow really fast, and then I would become someone’s food. That confuses me, because I am just happy to head grains and vegetables. Why would someone want to eat me? I have to be on this restricted diet to stay at a healthy weight, as if I get too heavy, I won’t be able to walk, and I would be at risk of a heart attack. I suppose the humans at the sanctuary only have my best interests at heart.
I am happy to know that I can live my life being loved and safe at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary. I have all I could possibly need here. I have my own house, and I get to go outside and enjoy the grass and sunshine. By sponsoring me, you will help take care of me for the rest of my life, as well as the other residents who call the sanctuary home. Will you please be my sponsor?
Ernesto – $10/month
Hello, my name is Ernesto, and I am one of the roosters who calls Wildwood Farm Sanctuary home. I can’t really remember why this happened, but one day I was snatched up and taped up in a box and left on a curb beside the road. I have since been told it is probably because I am a rooster, and my crowing upsets some people. I really don’t understand why people would not want to be woken up by my beautiful voice. I am only trying to help people make sure they don’t sleep in.
When I came to live at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, it was decided I would live in the big barn with some of the other roosters, as well as some turkey’s, peacocks and a goose. I love it in the barn as there are lots of high places to perch, where I can keep an eye on everything. You will hardly ever see me at ground level. I just love being up high so much. Even though humans have let me down in the past, I have not let this get in the way of interacting with the nice humans at the sanctuary. I really enjoy receiving a good scratch on my neck and chest from them, and I particularly like it when they offer me food from their hands.
I am sure because you are reading this, you are kind just like the people at the sanctuary, and you would like to help with the care of me and my friends. You can do this by becoming my sponsor. Being a sponsor means that you will ensure that I can live my whole life at the sanctuary being happy and healthy. Please sign up today to sponsor me.
