The Survivors – Loving Life at SASHA Farm

As colder weather approaches, Bob (left, above) and Sugar love to snuggle together in their warm bed. These “two peas in a pod” enjoy the comfortable and safe environment that SASHA provides them, along with the endless love they receive from their humans. This wasn’t always the case, as these two beautiful beings were part of the Livingston County Dairy Farm Cruelty Case you may have read about in previous posts.

Though they were terribly mistreated, left to die, and still babies when they arrived at SASHA, they beat the odds and are happily thriving with all of the other animals at our sanctuary. Sadly, 70 others didn’t make it out of that horrific situation. However, their spirits live on through all the survivors, and we will be forever thankful to have them to care for. Each individual reminds us of why we do what we do, and all have their own stories to tell. In the end, compassion wins. Here’s to Sugar and Bob and to all the survivors! 

Below you will see Humphrey the pig, the third surviving pig, who is playful and loving, and so happy being with all his SASHA Farm pig buddies, like Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. You’ll also see below the cows Danny, Buford, and Leo, the Holsteins; and Maitri and Sienna, the Brahman/Guernsey mixes.

Thank you to all of our supporters and sponsors who have helped these cows and pigs to know new lives here at SASHA, free from harm. We are so proud to have all eight survivors as part of the SASHA Farm family.  We hope their story inspires you to show kindness to all species, and to see them as friends, not food!

Humphrey – loves to play!

Left to Right: Sienna, Danny, Maitri, Leo, and Buford – knowing that they are home and together, loved and cared for always

Buford – noble but gentle

Danny – friendly and fun-loving

Thank you, SASHA friends, for your support! You’ll be helping new SASHA residents like Roody (pictured below).

Found this month in the wooded backyard of a kind couple in Michigan, this beautiful rooster was probably abandoned by his original caretakers, sadly a very common occurrence. Named Roody by the couple, he quickly adopted them as his new family. Unfortunately, the couple’s family dog wanted no such thing. Fearing for Roody’s safety, they searched for a new home, where he would live a long life, safe and protected. SASHA Farm heard of their plight, and now Roody is home, welcomed with open arms by SASHA volunteers and staff alike.
