MEET THE SANCTUARY RESIDENTS
Since rescuing its first animals in 2007, Sunny Meadows has offered a home to various species in need, including chickens, cows, equines, sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, ducks, and even turtles! We advocate for the recognition of sentience in all animals, not just the ones viewed as pets. Every one of our resident animals has a unique story and personality.
Hi, I'm Cisco!
I'm a wild mustang who was wrangled up in Nevada. Most of us are sent to slaughter. My previous owners starved and neglected me. I was picked up by the police and eventually made my way here to live my days at Sunny Meadow. I spend lots of time with my best friend Nell out in the fields.
Hi, I'm Cody!
I'm the newcomer around here and still learning the ropes but fitting in great with my best friend, Fred! I was a pet to a nearby family who decided they no longer wanted me. Sunny Meadow welcomed me with open arms!
Hi, I'm Jacob!
I came from a farm where I was being fed goat food, which contains copper and is toxic to us sheep. I'm on the shy side, but I enjoy the company of my best buddy, Sammy!
Hi, I'm Doc!
I came to Sunny Meadow with Gabe & Sammy after being rescued from a goat milking farm. I spend a lot of time here with Gabe. Although I'm not the troublemaker he is, I am quite the beggar when it comes to getting a treat!
I came to Sunny Meadow with Gabe and Sammy. I am not as mischievous as my buddy, Gabe, but I do love to beg for treats!!
Hi, I'm Timmy!
I came from VT with my buddy, Banjo! We have been living our best lives here at Sunny Meadow ever since! Were quite inseparable since our car journey here!
Hi I'm Maple!
Like many others, I was rescued from a goat farm. They didn't want me because I couldn't have babies but...SUPRISE! I was actually pregnant with Patches when I arrived here! I'm a goofy, sweet girl. Apologies in advance for my troublemaker son!
Hi, I'm Summer!
I used to live in filthy conditions under a house on a goat farm. When I arrived at Sunny Meadow, it took me a long time to regain my health. These days I live in a nice barn, and even though I still like to spend days relaxing under the barn, it's clean and I'm surrounded by all my friends!
Hi, I'm Banjo!
I arrived here from VT with my best buddy, Timmy!
I'm always looking to make new friends and get a treat, but fair warning, I'm not opposed to climbing on your lap for one!
Hi, I'm Gabe!
I came to Sunny Meadow from a goat milking farm with Sammy and Doc, but I don't let that sad part of my life slow me down. I spend my days getting into trouble and hanging with Doc!
Hi Im Scout
I was rescued from the turtle trade industry but very little is known about me other than that. Im the aquatic gal of mystery!
Hi, I'm Patches!
AKA Apache, but most people call me Patches. My story is short and sweet. I was born here! I was a bit of a surprise actually. My mom is Maple who you should meet sometime. Since I've lived here all my life, I suppose that makes me king of the goats!!
Hi, I'm Abby!
My owner gave me up after getting a job milking sheep (CAFO). As there is fear of spreading disease, employees cannot own animals. No other farmers wanted me because I have horns and can defend myself. I'm sort of the queen around here and my favorite hobby is food!
Hi, I'm Sammy!
I was rescued from a goat milking farm with two others that also reside here! Although Doc, Gabe, and I have been together all our lives, I prefer spending my days getting head scratches and hanging with Jacob!
AKA The Lowell Goat
I'm kind of famous around here. I escaped slaughter in Tewksbury, MA and led the Lowell police dept. on a chase trying to catch me. I refuse to be someone's meal! Google me! But first, stop by and say hello! (must bring treats!)
Hi, I'm Lilly!
I came from the same farm as Abby and Jacob! I was very ill and on my way to the slaughterhouse when Sunny Meadow rescued me! I tend to keep my distance but don't let that fool you, I love getting attention!
Hi, I'm Nellie!
Before coming here, I was being forced to mate with a much larger stallion in hopes of giving birth to a hinny, a rare male horse/female donkey mix. I was then going to be sold to pull logs off mountains in ME, but Sunny Meadow rescued me. I now hang out with my best friend, Cisco. He gives me confidence as I am very shy!
Hi, I'm Fred!
I'm the elder goat around here! I used to live in VT, but then my owner contracted cancer. Sunny Meadow happily took me in! I may be the oldest, but I'm not slowing down anytime soon!
Hi, I'm Maxwell!
I came from the streets of Brooklyn. I ran away from someone who was trying to raise me for slaughter in their backyard to eat. Pigs are not food, but fruits, vegetables and cheerios are, and I get lots of them here!
Hi, I'm Teddy!
I came from a pig rescuer in NY. Not much is known about my background. But I love living at Sunny Meadow with my pal, Max. We love to eat treats like cucumbers and carrots. Also, I LOVE to have my belly rubbed!
