Wemberly and Annabelle
In July, 2016 the ASPCA assisted in the largest-ever farm animal cruelty case in the northeast, where more than 1,000 farm animals of various species were living in deplorable conditions on a 70-acre property in Westport, Massachusetts. They found dead, injured, and neglected animals, some with no access to food or water.
Link to news regarding the cruelty case:
The ASPCA provided care for these animals and later transported them to a temporary location to receive ongoing care until disposition was determined by the court. Once the Court awarded ownership of the animals to the ASPCA, the search for homes began. We were contacted by ASPCA and asked if we could provide a home for two of the pigs. An ASPCA representative visited our sanctuary and we were approved for placement and a grant to help prepare for the arrival of the pigs. After preparation and a very long trip here, we were absolutely thrilled to welcome Wallace and Jasper.
Wallace and Jasper are bonded brothers who will never face cruelty and will only know love, respect, and kindness, and we are honored to be able to provide them with a safe, loving home.
Wemberly and Annabelle arrived one week apart. Each just 21 days old and forgotten in a factory farm transport trailer, just taken from their mothers, freezing and scared. Each rescued by a kind worker and brought to us to be together and live their lives in peace and love. They are almost grown now and loving their lives although Annabelle suffers from joint deterioration from her hard beginning.
Sam was found hurt and wandering in a residential neighborhood. When we got to him he was suffering from a broken femur and hypothermia. He is with us now, all healed and well and the most joyful, loving boy.
Daisy and Rosie are sisters and came to us after their guardian passed away. We knew that it would be difficult to find a home for older girls and they needed to stay together. They are a little grumpy but very sweet!
The Who's ~ Martha May and Cindy Lou came to us after being rescued from a terribly undhealthy situation as piglets. They are curly haired cuties and enjoying their lives at SoL.
Captain Dan, was born with only partial back legs. He was put into the “bad pen” where the ones who won’t grow to be profitable are sent to death, when a family member felt compassion for him and took him home. He has lived the last year by scooting himself around but hurting his stumps. It was time for him to go. Either to a sanctuary or the slaughterhouse. Little Dan deserves every chance at the best possible life so we brought Little Dan home and we will try everything in our power to see what is possible for him.
