MEET THE ANIMALS
Shadow is a 22 year old American Quarter Horse gelding. He is a very sweet fellow who will be the first to greet you in the pasture. Shadow would make a great horse for someone who is interested in pampering a beautiful animal! He has a condition called navicular disease that can cause lameness in the front feet if he is overworked so he would be a great lead pony or could do some light riding. Let us know if you'd like to meet Shadow or learn more about him. Click the button below to sponsor Shadow!
Chico is a 16 year old Warmblood who suffered from a hind suspensory ligament injury and is now retired from competitions. Chico was once a lower level dressage lesson horse but now needs a loving home where he can be a great pasture pet or ridden lightly on easy trails or an arena. Contact us if you're interested in learning more!
Roosevelt is a 4 year old pot bellied pig who loves to talk! Roosevelt is very sweet, comfortable with calm dogs, and loves eating delicious treats straight from your hand. He is very intentional and rearranges his blankets to create the best snuggle conditions. Roosevelt came to SDFAR from a family who was moving and could not take him with them. Roosevelt appears to be somewhat knock kneed, and his disability makes it difficult to find a forever home, but he still loves to explore and would make a great indoor or outdoor pet. He is potty trained and very clean! If you're interested in adopting Roosevelt, please contact us today!
Betsy is Roosevelt's pen mate and another pot bellied pig. She is very sweet looking and even sweeter in person. She loves to be loved, patted and fed treats. She lives in the garden on the farm and is very cleanly and sure not to trample the vegetables. Contact us to come visit.
Romeo is a Yucatan pig that was rescued from a testing laboratory along with his buddy, Thomas. He and Thomas have injection site scars on their backs from tests performed at the lab. Both Romeo and Thomas are very happy to be at SDFAR now and have grown since we got them in July 2016. They love to be rambunctious and active. We believe these pigs would love to have a space to roam since they were in cages for the first part of their lives.
Daisy a.k.a Piggie Smalls
Daisy, a.k.a Piggie Smalls is a 250 pound pot-belly pig. Due to her size we decided to emancipate her from her pen and let her roam free on the farm. She spends her days lounging under the cherimoya trees or in her adopted new home, a teepee. Daisy is great with children and other pets.
Johnny Cash came to us as a runt and was picked on by other chickens. He had a slim chance of survival after veterinarians diagnosed him with a developmental condition that caused him to be smaller than average and have loss of feathers at times among other problems. We gave Johnny Cash his own home and let him thrive! Today he has one of the loudest crows on the farm!
PauPau was found as a chick in the middle of a busy highway at 2:30am. His rescuer stopped to pick him up & took him home. When PauPau was about 7 months old, he had to be rehomed because his crow was bothering the neighbors. PauPau is kind & loving, loves to lay on your lap, or perch on your shoulder, and follows you everywhere you walk! If you're interested in adopting a rooster for non-breeding purposes, contact us today!
At SDFAR, our most adoptable animal is the chicken. As more and more people move toward a healthier lifestyle, families are choosing to own their own chickens. We have rescued dozens of chickens and rehome them to great, loving families.
If you're interested in fostering an animal at an offsite location, please contact us for more information.
Spike Lee found a forever home on a farm in Potrero, California!
Mogli found a forever home on an old goat farm. He is the family's first pet pig and the kids couldn't be happier! We are so happy for Mogli. He even has a new bedroom setup equipped with a chandelier!
Cupcake found her forever home with an amazing family who knew they wanted her from day one. She is the queen of the roost and couldn't be happier!
Cocoa and her new best friend! We are so happy these two met!
Neglected chicks found a forever home with room to scratch outside and a safe hen house!
These chicks were rescued from a neglectful owner who was keeping them in a small box covered by a blanket. They had no sunlight or fresh air, and no access to food or water. If you are interested in getting chickens as a pet, please consider adopting like this family did. Look at those smiles!
Frisco and Jingo are two 15 y.o. broodmares who grew up together and have known each other their entire lives. They came to us from an owner who could no longer care for them due to personal reasons. Eventually headed for auction and feedlot, the owner contacted SDFAR through Facebook, and we were able to make space for them. Today they are beautiful and healthy, and were adopted out to a nearby family. Contact us to learn about how to contribute to our cause by volunteering, spreading the word, donating or adopting one of the many animals in need.
