Watson is a 5yr-old 600lbs Berkshire-mix Barrow. He and his dad, Wallace, moved to Refarm in the fall of 2017. He was well cared for and loved but when his caregivers couldn't anymore, he nearly ended up becoming dog food. This gently giant is save now and loves a good belly rub.
Ollie would have been veal were it not for an infection in his joints that made him ineligible for human consumption. For 18 months he was left to fend for himself. Too strong to die. Too weak to get better. He's in better place now. Come hang with him. He loves to cuddle.
Ruby is our guard llama. Anytime there is the slightest sign of danger, Ruby makes her warning calls. Within seconds, ever other animal gathers around her and stares in the exact same direction she does. She's getting older and will remain at Refarm to live out the rest of her life.
Volunteer hours are every Saturday from 10 am-2 pm. Typical volunteer activities include mucking barns and coops, raking, and pasture cleaning. Volunteering is physically intensive, so expect to get a good workout!
We operate Refarm Sanctuary for the love of animals. We will do so regardless of what contributions or help we get. Yet, your support allows us to expand care to more animals in need. All donations are matched by an anonymous donor.
