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



Some really pretty type of duck


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



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!



Simon, Lady Jane's Baby



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

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 pics! What a very cool place to do your internship! I'm pretty sure that Maggie & Charlotte want to be my barn buddies ;)

Just an update!! I am in love with this place, today was my 6th day there, it's just fabulous and I am having so so so much fun! I've gotten to take calves for walks

Give pigs belly scratches

Play with the resident baby pig, Eldon

And I've fallen head over heels in love with 2 amazing horses! Cricket and Hattie

Especially Hattie, who is really really shy around everyone, but who has decided she loves me. She even trotted up to me today!!

My Shadows!

The stories on these rescues are incredible and unbelievable. While scrolling thru the beginning of your pictures I was going to name my favorites, but they are all my favorites@
