Stay tuned! Annabelle's bio is coming soon!
Regan is named after American animal rights advocate Tom Regan who passed away in 2017 right around the time Regan the calf was born.
Regan has a noticeable under-bite which just adds to his already adorable cuteness.
Cocoa can be found standing a few feet away from volunteers quietly mooing at them for attention. When she feels a connection with someone, she very intently studies them, and then gently comes to sniff their hands. If you have a treat, she might even let you pet her.
Butternut is Cocoa's son! He looks just like his mum, with mirrored markings. Born in 2017, Butternut is a handsome guy, if a little shy.
Fuzz loves to be admired... from a distance! She knows she is absolutely adorable, but often plays it cool and prefers to relax on her own. Fuzz is very sweet, gentle and super lovable!
Buckley here is such a lady. She loves to be pampered with hugs and kisses, and will never turn away from anyone wanting to give her some love. She's very gentle, and never picks fights with the others. She has a special way of getting along with everyone that she meets. Her gentle nature sometimes means she doesn't always get her way, but she never complains... unless it's about food, of course!
Meathead is an absolute ladies man.. and with looks like these, who can resist? He might seem like a tough guy at first, and will give some intimidating looks to newcomers, but he is an absolute softie at heart!
Einstein is so silly! She never runs out of funny faces to make, and can make anyone smile. Charming, funny and beautiful!
Lump is strong-willed and never afraid to stand out amongst the crowd! Both his looks and his personality are absolutely unique :)
Hansel is one of the twins! He takes after his dad, Meathead, and likes to put on a tough-guy face, but can also be silly sometimes! He can often be found with his sister, Gretel.
Gretel, the other twin, is a sweetheart, but if you give her brother apples then you better have some for her as well! She loves to play, especially if it's with Hansel.
Gord is named after Gord Downey Jr. (singer from The Tragically Hip) because Gord was born on the day that Gord Downey passed away.
Gord is a real sweetheart!
Red-Eye is a very sweet, gentle girl. She has a baby, Neo, who she is an absolutely wonderful mother to.
Melody is one tough horse, but also has a sweet side that is sure to come out once you feed her a few carrots.
Beautiful Milkshake has the most gentle, sweet nature. Her favorite things are fresh pastures, eating squash, and back rubs!
Lucky and Willard
Lucky and Willard are our resident ducks. Lucky is the male, with dark coloring, and Willard is the white female.
Lucky follows Willard around the barnyard everywhere, quacking quietly, while Willard's quack is much louder and emphatic. They are a very cute couple!
The Chicken Coop Gang
We have one rooster and seven hens at the sanctuary.
They spend their days strutting around their runs, pecking at things in the grass, and at night get up on their roost in their coops to sleep.
Stay tuned! Terri-Jane's bio is coming soon!

Note: there are more animals living on the sanctuary, and their
biographies are coming soon!
Hope (2016 - 2020)
Hope was very special - in many ways she can be credited with saving all of her animal friends at the sanctuary as it was right when she was born, that farmer Mike decided he could no longer send the animals to slaughter. Since she was born prematurely and needed lots of help getting her start to life, he spent a long time caring for her, and realized he never wanted to be the reason that she was killed.
At 4 years old, she lived longer than most cows on regular farms. Even at 4 years old, she was smaller than even the youngest cow at the sanctuary - but it never stopped her from pushing all the big cows away so she can be right at the front getting all the best treats from visitors!
She was tiny but strong-willed, sweet, and determined to overcome any obstacle that came her way.
She used to be named Longface, but was dubbed "Mumma" after proving to be a wonderful mother to little Hope. Mumma was very protective of her little one, and was a very gentle soul.
