Meet Ellie

Emus are native to Australia and are one of the largest living birds but are unable to fly, however they can run up tp 31mph! They enjoy taking baths, eating fruit, and receiving cuddles from their human caretakers. Ellie, our emu, is no different! Ellie came from an outdoor garden store in Detroit where she was on display as an attraction. Two kind men rescued her from her stressful and miserable life and brought her to SASHA Farm in July 2019. Due to all the stress in her life, she had some issues getting adjusted, but with the loving kindness of the SASHA staff and volunteers, she is making great progress! And what a beauty she is.
