Sponsor A Resident Farm Animal

Not everyone is able to provide the required shelter or long-term financial commitment needed to rescue a farm animal. Farm Animal Care Sponsorships offer a unique opportunity to compassionate people who would personally rescue as many animals as they could – that is if they had the proper housing, zoning, and time to devote to animal care.

Our program is designed to help meet the expenses of the sanctuary while allowing you to take a personal interest in the life of an individual animal. For as little as $30.00 a month you can sponsor an animal resident. Your donation will go directly toward shelter, food and medical care of the animal of your choice. Sponsorships also make a great gift for your animal-loving family and friends.

If interested in sponsoring one of the animals at Mountain View Farm Animal Sanctuary below, please choose the appropriate sponsorship button next to their picture.

GraceGRACE

Grace is a lovely older, retired Standardbred mare that has found her soft place to land and spend the rest of her years of well-deserved rest here at the Sanctuary. She was rescued in January 2016 by Gerda’s Animal Aid just moments before being loaded on a truck to go to slaughter in Mexico at a feedlot in Pennsylvania. This sweet girl served many years of dedicated work to humans as a harness racehorse, a broodmare and then an Amish buggy horse for many hardworking years. As a result of the work she endured, Grace has very weak hind legs causing her to never be sound to ride or drive again, which is quite alright because she deserves her retirement. She arrived to us very thin, with health issues related to the neglect she experienced prior to rescue, but she is slowly being rehabbed and will now live out the rest of her years happy, healthy and safe. She has an incredible temperament. She is the essence of wisdom and resilience, with a bright spirit.

Sponsor Julie

MELVIN

Melvin is a young Shetland Sheep ram who, except for the sanctuary, would have been slaughtered as a lamb. He is very domesticated and may think he is a dog at times. Every Spring his wool is shorn and by the time the weather gets cold again he has a nice, thick wooly coat. Melvin enjoys his time playing with the little goats in the goat pen.

LEANDER

Leander was rescued by us at a very young age to give him the opportunity of a full life because he has a congenital spinal condition called “Wobblers” that causes periodid ataxia (unsteadiness) that prevents his being ridden. Leander is a Thoroughbred gelding in his early teens. He is very playful and can sometimes be a bit mouthy or “nippy”, but is not mean-spirited one bit. He does not let his condition prevent him from enjoying life and can often times be seen running, rearing and bucking with his pasture-mates.

CABOT

Cabot was rescued from a farm by a young woman just before he was to be processed for veal. She had befriended him almost since birth and called us quite upset when she learned of the fate that was planned for him. At first, Cabot was so small that he had to be kept from the larger cows we have rescued, but now he is big and strong enough to be with them out in the large field, and he seems to like that a lot. He is the friendliest of the cows, probably because he was treated so well by the young woman who asked us to take him in.

Dolly

Dolly

Dolly is a gentle and curious, sweet older Quarter Horse mare who came to us on Valentine’s Day 2018 when she was rescued from a situation of neglect. Dolly has had a long road of rehabilitation and recovery, which we suspect will continue due to her chronic physical issues, but she still remains to have a bright outlook on life.

Dolly is missing her right eye from an event that happened at a young age, but the loss doesn’t seem to bother her one bit. She enjoys spending her days napping in the hay, accompanied by her pasture mates Grace and Destiny. Thank you for making a donation to help us support Dolly.

REMI

Remi is a robust and curious young steer that came to us when Cabot lost his two older companions due to age. At the same time, the rescue that had taken Remi in as a rescue from slaughter was in search of a suitable place for him to live out his life. Now he happily resides at the Mountain View Farm Animal Sanctuary, experiencing the joy of living out his days with his pal, Cabot, at his side. Remi and Cabot are similar in appearances, however, Remi has handsome big horns.

BUCKLES

Buckles was surrendered to us by his lifetime owners because they were no longer able to physically care for his needs. He started out his life on western ranch and became a trail/pack horse, going on adventures for many years, until his owners decided to move to the east coast. Buckles is a grade, Quarab (Quarter Horse/Arabian cross) gelding in his late 20s. He is very mindful of people, but always aware of anything that might frighten him. He is always the first one to start shedding and tell us that “Spring is here!”

COLUMBO “BO”

Columbo aka “Bo” is an aged Paso Fino gelding in his early 30s. He came to us, along with Pasha, from a very attentive and loving local woman who because of age and illness in her home could no longer care for him. He has a magnificent, classic gait and a very wise, stubborn; yet inquisitive manner. Bo is very connected to Pasha as they have spent many years together and gets very upset when they are separated so we keep them close as possible at all times.

DESTINY

Destiny is an older Rocky Mountain horse mare with an inquisitive nature and a zest for life. She came to us after being rescued from a situation of neglect. Upon arrival, Destiny was quite scared of humans and was especially fearful of being haltered or having her head touched. After many weeks of patient, dedicated and compassionate care, Destiny recovered physically and is very well on her way to emotional healing as well.

LUCY

Lucy came to us after living as a stray for the first year of life. She was thin and in poor health, however, with a bit of quality veterinary care and some love, her life is turning around. Lucy is incredibly brave and smart. She follows the caretakers of the animals around the grounds as they do their tasks, greets every animal and is quite successful at mouse patrol. She and Buster are becoming fast friends, loving to chase and play with one another.

NOODLE

Noodle is a spunky and adventurous, friendly male orange tabby cat that is quickly winning over Lucy’s heart and all those he meets. He spent the beginning of his life on the streets, fending for himself, but now he is king of the barn; hunting and exploring all day and night. He will sure be one of the first residents you meet if you visit, as he and Lucy have become our dedicated greeters.

LEXI

Lexi is an eye-catching black and white Paint horse mare in her 20s. She is beautiful and she knows it! Lexi came to us after being rescued from a life of over-breeding as a broodmare for draft horse crosses, as well as a traumatic trailering accident that caused her to sustain trauma to her head when being forced onto a horse trailer. After a few months of rehabilitation and settling back into “being a horse”, Lexi served as a trail riding horse at a NH resort. After Lexi was deemed unsafe for riding due to residual dangerous effects of her accident, the decision was then made by the young woman who had taken her in from her original rescuer to retire her to us at the sanctuary where she can comfortably spend happy days out in the pasture with her herdmates.

BUCKY

Bucky came to the sanctuary January 2015 with two other miniature horses. All three were starved and grossly neglected. They had very poor body condition, rotten and overgrown hooves, skin problems and major trust issues; especially Bucky. He has since been rehabilitated to full health and is learning to trust humans again. He is very smart and sweet, but takes some time to get to know new people and is frightened of quick movements.)

SASSY

Sassy was party of a family of miniature horses rescued in January 2015 during a violent and cold blizzard. She and her herd-mates were emaciated and very neglected, needing months of rehabilitation to return to full health. Sassy is now very happy and healthy, and living up to her name! She demands respect and attention of humans, and loves to be told how beautiful she is.

BROWNIE

Brownie is a very friendly brown and white pinto pony gelding. He came to us after he lost his usefulness as a competitive pulling horse, and was no longer wanted. Brownie has many physical ailments, some chronic and others a result of earlier mismanagement. To keep Brownie in good health, his diet must be carefully maintained and he occasionally requires supplements and medications when he has flare-ups from his insulin resistance. Brownie is also permanently blind in his right eye and has a respiratory restriction that is noticed when he gets excited or runs around a lot.
Despite his physical challenges, Brownie maintains an energetic, joyful outlook on life.
