On #FlashbackFriday, we're remembering Cameron's first time exploring in the pasture — he had so much fun! It's difficult to believe, but this little guy with a big personality has now been with us for a year! His life has changed so much in that time, first getting to know his new caregivers, then getting a new brother in Ben David piglet, and next being adopted by the boys' honorary mom, Honey pig! Read Cameron's story and see more photos at, learn about his family at, and check in on this amazing family through the magic of @exploreorg's live pig pasture cam at!

Little Erin has been having a blast in the pasture this summer! His world has really expanded since joining our main sheep flock (along with his doting mom Julie, of course) not too long ago. It’s amazing to see him loving life with his family and friends! ❤️🐑 Learn more about him at and check in on our New York Shelter sheep flock anytime you’d like at! #Instalamb

On #RespectForParentsDay, we're saluting the incredible farm animal parents and parental figures who call Farm Sanctuary home! While most farm animals aren't given the chance to remain with their families, at sanctuary we have the wonderfully special opportunity to see families stay together for life!

The many faces of Earl! This sweet boy was rescued from a cruelty case last year, and he was so traumatized when he arrived at Farm Sanctuary that he was afraid to even leave the barn. Today, he’s thriving and loving every minute of #FarmSanctuaryLife! ❤️🐐 Read his story at and learn more about the deep social and emotional lives of goats at (link in bio)!

The beautiful and very brave escape artist Frank enjoying a very green summer at our New York Shelter! As you may remember, Frank escaped slaughter and ran for his life last year - and we're so thrilled that he's now safe, sound, and very happy at Farm Sanctuary! ❤️🐮 Watch his story in a video narrated by his friend and rescuer Jon Stewart at! #SomeoneNotSomething

Our amazing caregivers treating Valentino steer, one of our special-needs residents (who seems unfazed). Valentino is such an amazing boy and he absolutely loves his friends on our shelter staff team! ❤️🐮 Read his story at and learn more about our sensitive, intelligent bovine friends at

We're wishing a very happy “rebirthday” to Liz & Cashew, an amazing mother and son who came to Farm Sanctuary a year ago today! 🐮🎉 Unlike their counterparts in the dairy industry, this special little family will be able to stay together for life. Better still, they’ve expanded their family since coming to Farm Sanctuary with the addition of Jerome, a calf who came to us without his mother and was adopted by Liz & Cashew. We’re so happy to be able to watch these incredible animals thriving together at sanctuary! Read Liz & Cashew’s story at and meet Jerome (whose own “rebirthday” is coming up soon!) at ❤️🐮🐮🐮 P.S. Our friends at @TreelineCheese (who make delicious dairy-free, cow-friendly cheeses) are currently matching sponsorships of Cashew and Jerome, up to $10,000! If you're interested in sponsoring this adorable brother duo, you can learn more about how you can have your gift matched at!

Mason is so happy to be free and our beloved new member of the cattle herd. Here he lets our senior manager Tara Hess know just how happy he is! ❤️🐮 Learn about the rich emotional and social lives of our bovine friends at #FarmSanctuaryLife

Meet Aria! She started life in the egg industry, and when she was considered “spent,” she was sent to be killed. But somehow, this amazing girl survived being gassed. A supervisor at a rendering plant heard clucking coming from a pile of dead chickens, and there was Aria, alive – something he said he’d never seen in his more than 20 years working at the plant. Amazed by this incredible survivor, the man took her home, where she stayed temporarily before finding a forever home at our Southern California Shelter. Today, she’s loving every moment of #FarmSanctuaryLife! While she’s understandably quite wary of humans, she’s become a friend to all in her flock of rescued birds and has discovered a deep love of dust-bathing! Read her story at and learn about the egg industry at (link in bio).

Little Erin lamb recently became big enough to join the main sheep flock at our New York Shelter (along with his devoted mom Julie, of course)! He’s loving making new friends and exploring the expansive sheep pasture. Most of our residents (including Julie, who was rescued while pregnant) have had difficult pasts, so it’s amazing to see youngsters like Erin grow up knowing nothing but love, care, and kindness. ❤️🐑 You can check in on his progress thanks to our @ExploreOrg sanctuary live cams, which include views of the sheep barn and pasture! Tune in at and learn more about Erin and Julie at (link in bio). #FarmSanctuaryLife #Instalamb

Gary stopping by to say hello! Born into the dairy industry, he was considered useless by the farmer who “owned” him – but at Farm Sanctuary, he’s a much-loved member of our happy family! ❤️🐮 Read his story and see baby photos at, and learn about the dairy industry at #SomeoneNotSomething

#TBT to our earliest days with Scribbles goat! This adorable kid has since grown into a majestic adult (scroll through these photos to see the fancy set of horns and flowing beard he’s now sporting), and he’s still enjoying #FarmSanctuaryLife every bit as much as he did when he was a baby! ❤️🐐 Read his story and see video at
