Being one of the few Sanctuaries that is willing to take "farm" animals has resulted in a lot of goat and sheep rescues over the years. These creatures have quirky personalities and there's never a dull moment around the Sanctuary with their funny and entertaining antics.
The Blue Heart Sanctuary...
Sheep & Goats
When we first took him from the County animal services, he was definitely deserving of his name! As a mature buck, he reeked and the backs of his front legs were raw with urine scald. We had him neutered and after his quarantine period enjoyed the good life with us at the Sanctuary.
He and his friend, Mindy had been attacked by dogs. Poor Mindy had both her ears nearly ripped off and sadly, not long after her rescue, she passed away. Although we have had Mork for 12 years, it has only been in the last year that he has started coming to us for attention. Today, his best friend is Shadow, the cat. Shadow sits at Mork's feet and will reach up and pull his head toward her so she can lick his ear. It is absolutely adorable!
Named after the Sheriff Deputy who was instrumental in saving her, Timmy and her friend, Fluffy were tortured before their rescue. Fluffy had been tethered by her back leg and drug behind an SUV. Her foot was mangled and had swollen enormously. Her rehabilitation was lengthy and we weren't sure if we were going to be able to save her foot. Thankfully we were persistent in her care and today she walks with only a small limp.
Stormy & Rain ~
Brother and sister,fortunate to be born at the Sanctuary. We rescued their mother, Baby from a terribly neglectful situation. The owners kept her tethered in their backyard. She was in pitiful shape and we were not aware of her pregnancy until after these two were born. (Yes, there was a helacious storm that night!) With love, care and the proper nutrition she desperately needed, Baby was an excellent mother to Stormy & Rain.
From another neglect case, his mother had CAE (caprine arthritic encephalitis) and sadly, not long after his birth, she passed away. His name is also a perfect fit for him! In fact, that is how we knew he had been born!
One of our first rescues when we were in Florida. Emma and her mother, Mary were living in a dump. The ground was littered with trash everywhere. It is amazing Mary was able to give birth to this beautiful girl without complications! Mary passed away a couple of years ago. Today Emma likes to hang with Fluffy & Timmy, the 3 of them are inseperable!
