Meet Rosie the Emu!

Rosie the emu

This is Rosie our new emu. Rosie was one of 26 emus that a couple in Illinois had. We assume they may have been running an emu farm. Emus are raised for their meat, oil and feathers. When the couple divorced the emus went to a shelter and were then placed in new homes. We discovered a ring pierced through her back that may have been for a tag. We removed it. Her days of being someone's property are over. Now all Rosie needs is a sponsor. Become hers today: http://sashafarm.org/node/391

Former Cockfighting Roosters Seized in Cleveland Will Receive Rehabilitation and A New Life

Former Cockfighting Roosters

On June 19, 2014 twelve new roosters arrived at SASHA Farm and things would never be the same. We are learning about the horrific things people do to roosters just for their entertainment. In May we received an email from the Cleveland Animal Protective League about some very special roosters that needed to be placed in new homes. We were committed to helping. Fifteen total birds were seized from a disbanded cockfighting ring. Most of the birds bear the sad appearance of shaved bellies and legs, clipped spurs, combs cut-off and missing eyes and/or blindness. These cruel alterations and injuries followed these reported circumstances:

Blind Cow Born On A Dairy Farm Escapes Euthanasia!

Stevie the Cow_Intro

A few months ago we received an email from a city in Northern Michigan about a blind cow born on a dairy farm. The woman who contacted us was the farmer’s daughter. The farmer wanted to euthanize the cow but his daughter would not let him. She pleaded with him and kept him alive for a year. She wanted to find a place for Stevie where someone would take the time to work with disability. We agreed to take Stevie because his circumstance is so unique and we know special needs animals can be hard to place.

Stevie is a year old and has learned to depend on his hearing to compensate for his blindness. He also has begun to learn the perimeter of his new barn and yard. He knows where his food is but with every step we take we have to remain consistent with all that we do for Stevie. Stevie’s accommodations will always have to be taken into consideration to maintain that he has a good quality of life. Cows can live to be in their 20’s. Stevie will need a lifetime of care. At SASHA Farm we realize the importance and the challenges of taking on special needs animals. Despite the hard work that goes into doing that we would not have it any other way. When people are blind we do not simply discard them so why should we do that to animals?
