Haku was destined for slaughter but was brought to our attention just in time. We were able to negotiate for Haku's freedom and now he's the sanctuary's first resident and ambassador.
He will live out his days happily, free from fear and harm. He moved in at the end of 2018 and is adjusting to his new home quite nicely! Haku loves to root and wallow in the cool mud, frolic around his enclosure, and play soccer!
Come visit this lovable goofball for muddy cuddles and laughs.
Francis & Fern
Francis and Fern are Muscovy ducklings! Muscovy ducks are a domesticated species that have long been raised for their meat, but our landlord (shoutout to the best landlord ever!) Melissa is an avid bird-lover and rehabber, and sent them our way.
They love each other so much; in fact, if they are out of eyesight from each other they start chirping at the top of their lungs!
Yes, "Hei Hei" like the chicken in Moana. He was saved from death when a family found him severely wounded. He was bleeding, missing many of his feathers, and he was very weak. It was immediately apparent that something was wrong with his right eye, as well. He was rescued by the family and brought inside their home to recover. As he got better, he began hanging out with their dog and kids, and soon he thought he was just another member of the gang.
Hei-Hei loves to crow and makes the most adorable noises. He enjoys eating bananas and receiving affection from our caretaker volunteers.
Eleanor is a beautiful 8-12 year old pig with quite the story. She spent most of her life in a concrete pen, starving, with no other animals and no affection (swipe right to see her before being saved). Her owner starved two of his horses to death and was doing the same to Eleanor (for reasons unknown). Luckily, Eleanor was noticed by a woman who began bringing her food scraps and was eventually able to rescue her.
She is 200lbs bigger than Haku, weighing in at about 600+ lbs! But don’t let her size alarm you. She craves attention and affection and loves to be with her hoomans.
