We wanted to take a moment to reflect on 2021 and share our gratitude for your continued support. Over the last year, with your generosity and kindness, we were able to:
-rescue and rehabilitate over 90 farmed animals from cruelty and neglect, collaborate on many additional rehomings and provide daily care and shelter to nearly 200 rescued farmed animals that call the sanctuary home.
-install further boundary fencing to keep the animals safe, create purpose-built paddocks for special-needs animals, install rainwater tanks to further drought proof the sanctuary and build a spacious new area for rescued battery hens.
-inspire thousands towards a cruelty-free lifestyle through our educational sanctuary tours, social media platforms and our school curriculum programme.
Thank you again for your continued support of our work and mission. Seven years after founding Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary, we continue to be inspired by our community of passionate supporters and our collective drive to make a kinder, more compassionate world for all animals.
Best wishes to you and your family for 2022.
Debbie, Jamie and the WPF team
THE LUCKY ONES – just a few of the animals rescued in 2021
Willow – June This baby lamb came into our care at just a few weeks old. Weak and very poorly with injuries to her eye and jaw, Willow went straight to our vets. Sadly her left eye couldn’t be saved. After months of intensive care, Willow is now healthy, happy and loving sanctuary life with her best friends, Percy and Archie.
Percy – June Barely a week old and just over a kilo, Percy the pig has beaten the odds to survive. Found on a road with his sibling after being hit by a car, rushed to emergency vets and then to us. With medical care, love and good groceries, Percy has gone from strength to strength. One of the sanctuary’s big personalities. Willow is his best pal.
Rupert – August Taken from his mother just days old and sold on Gumtree, he had received no replacement milk and just left to eat grass. Thin, severely malnourished and sick on arrival, we immediately started treatment. Vaccinated, wormed, daily probiotics and with nourishing feed, baby Rupert is now thriving.
Ex-battery hens They spent their lives in wire cages no bigger than a macbook with five to six other hens in putrid, dark sheds. Plenty of firsts for the hens at WPF. First look at the sky above. First chance to flap their wings. First step on grass. First breeze felt through their feathers. They need never worry again.
Maddie – September Seized by the RSPCA as a severe neglect case, rehabilitation is ongoing. She is on daily meds and frequent feeds. 35 yrs old, Maddie will spend her final years here, free from harm, much loved and all the care and attention she needs.
Moses – July Moses was a stray, wild goat who had been hanging with our goat team (on the other side of the fence) since April. He was all alone and depressed.. It took us a few months to gain his confidence so we could contain him in quarantine before eventually moving him in with the WPF goat team. Moses fitted right in from day one.
