Prepare for a cuteness overload!

As most of you know I got an internship at a local rescue known as the Catskill Animal Sanctuary! Today was my third day and I love it! I absolutely love it, I wish I could just go there everyday! So far I have learned how to wrap the feet of chickens with bumblefoot, I have given a rooster pills, I have taken a calf for a walk, I have brushed the dead skin off a pig, laid in the hay and gave belly rubs to another pig, made friends with some awesome horses, and so much more!!

I thought you all would like to see some pictures from the rescue! There are a lot more animals then these, I'll eventually get pictures of everyone! I still don't know many names yet so bare with me :D

Don't know this guys name yet, but he's beautiful and so so friendly!



Calves!! We have 4, they were rescued veal calves




Don't know her name


Noelle and Christopher. Noelle was picked up in 2006 in the bronx being chased by a dog down the street. When she came to the sanctuary it was discovered that she was preggers.


Not sure of the chestnuts name. The bay is Rowdy



Collette


Sadie


Some really pretty type of duck


Julius


Maggie and Charlotte


Casey. He was let loose in a junk yard. When he was found he was thin, anemic and covered in ticks


Lady Jane, came to the rescue pregnant, she gave birth in April. Recently she's been fighting a nasty case of lyme disease


Buddy


Beyond


Mary Jane. She is an off track TB. If you try and ride her, or put her on a trailer she will sit down like a dog and just refuse to move. She vetted out fine.


Noah. He was found in a partially collapsed building with 2 other horses. No one thought he would survive. He's the cutest freaking horse ever!


Cricket. She's my favorite along with another mare named Hattie who I don't have pictures of yet. Cricket was found tied to a bath tub, with a chain around her ankle, and covered in Graffiti. He has pretty bad ringbone so she'll never be rideable but she is absolutely adorable!



Crystal


Abbey


Simon, Lady Jane's Baby


Star


Sioux


Chopper!! My love! This pig loves when you lay down next to him in the hay and give him belly rubs



Hannah


Lumpy


Lambert


Jangles. He was from a university where they tested drugs on him. After the semester was over they were going to euthanize him but the students loved their pig and bought him and gave him to the sanctuary.

Great pictures!! Thank you for sharing them here.

It's heartbreaking to hear where some of these animals came from. Like Cricket who was chained and covered in graffiti

I'm glad that there are great shelters out there and people like you to love and care for them now.

I wish people would care more for animals, it is heartbreaking the way they're treated with such disregard. They're all such lovely animals there, I'm glad they're in kind hands now! :D

That is so awesome, congrats on the internship! I love the Jersey calves (at least I think they're Jerseys)! I work at a Children's Discovery Farm and we have all types of farm animals, even "endangered" breeds like Poitou donkeys San Clemente goats!
