But I wasn’t expecting to save three terribly sick newborn calves who were otherwise destined for a garbage heap or slaughterhouse rendering system. I couldn’t turn my back on them – and I know that after I tell their story, you won’t either.
Please help Farm Sanctuary care for these newly rescued calves and stop the cruelty they endured with an emergency year-end gift.
Within moments of entering the crowded facility, I was overwhelmed by the staggering number of animals at the sale. Trucks were driving up filled with calves, a by-product of the dairy industry. There were hundreds of these babies, some less than one day old, frantically looking for their mothers.
Their cries and confusion were met with fierce blows from wooden canes on their backs as workers tried to force them into different pens.
The people called them “trash.”
Please donate now to help Farm Sanctuary save these neglected newborn calves and work to stop this cruelty for those who are still suffering.
