MEET THE ANIMALS!
Adele arrived at Unity in August 2020! She is a 10-year-old standard donkey and is much taller than her new “big sister,” Star the mini donkey. Adele has a soft spot for sweet talk and the company of other equines. We love her already!
Audrey came from Tomten Farm and Sanctuary in NH with Elliot after being saved from going to auction, as she could not have babies so was of “no use” in the dairy industry. She is playful and loves to lick new visitors to say hello!
Bob came to the Sanctuary after he was discarded from the dairy industry. He first came here with a serious infection called Lumpy Jaw, but now he is completely cured! He is very affectionate and loves to run around with his buddy Wallace.
Nigerian Dwarf Goat
Bud is one of our newest goats and has quickly worked his way into the hearts of many, including his new BFF, Ellie the goat. With a gorgeous thick coat and strapping horns, he is quite irresistible to staff and visitors alike.
Domino came from Maine with his mother, Mocha. He is very thoughtful and loves to play fight with the other male alpaca. He is always seen around his favorite rock and loves to pose on it for visitors.
Elliot was rescued before being "shipped" to the livestock auction. He's 1000 pounds of love and thinks he's a dog. Just like Shiro, he wants to jump on people's shoulders. Have you ever had an 1000 pound puppy on your shoulders? Fun, but not recommended.
Good Will is a lamb from Vermont that was rescued after he became an orphan due to his large size at birth. He is very adventurous and loves to eat, prance around, and greet new visitors!
Lollipop is a sweet little pinto who came to the sanctuary with her BFF Boomer. She is only 27 inches tall, but that doesn’t stop her from taking charge! Snacking used to be her main passion, but we’re working on helping her expand her horizons.
Billy is a Nubian goat. He was rescued with Marky from a butchering operation in Lawrence, MA. He is very curious and always wants to know what's going on around his paddock.
Boomer is a shy little fella who (like many mini horses) suffers from some health problems due to being bred to such a small size. But, with his best friend Lollipop by his side, Boomer is gaining confidence and tackling physical therapy like a champ!
Cash is 17, from Tolland, CT. He had never lived with other horses before he came to the Sanctuary, so when he first arrived he lived with the goats. He is very calm natured and now enjoys living with the other minis.
Dory is a Welsh Pony who was rescued with her son, Squirt. She is completely blind in her left eye and is enjoying her retirement at the Sanctuary. She loves baths, walks, and meeting visitors.
Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd Dog
Ellie is a Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd cross. She was born on a goat farm in Illinois and came to us from her family who loved her very much but could no longer keep her. She is playful and has gotten to know the alpaca. Volunteers love to visit her!
George is the newest pig at the Sanctuary. He used to live indoors, but sadly his home burned down and he lost his tail the fire. He is extremely friendly and loves to say hello to every visitor.
Maxine is our furry ambassador. If you visit the sanctuary, she will greet you, nuzzle your hair, and welcome your touch. As the guardian of the goat herd, she’s always alert to anyone passing the paddock.
Old Gloucester Spot Pig
Sweet adorable Amelia is a young Gloucestershire pig who has fit right in with the other pigs here at the Sanctuary. We love her joie de vivre and those beyond-cute floppy ears!
Appaloosa Quarter Horse
Brandy is 15 and an Appaloosa Quarter Horse. She is very spirited and gets weekly exercise. Brandy is very much in love with our Barn Manger! She is happy she found a soft landing for her forever home.
Cheviot Cross SHeep
Charlotte came to the Sanctuary with her mother, Lila, and brother, Shaun after they were no longer usable to train herding dogs. Charlotte is very curious but shy and prefers to stay close to her mother.
Danny Boy is a Hampshire Pig, a breed typically used for meat. We are so happy to have this cheerful boy living his forever life at UFS, and we think he is pretty happy too. He loves his buddy, Leona the Pig -- they cuddle together at night!
Dudley is a star. He's a gentle giant - nearly one ton of pure joy. He spends his day running and jumping in his new pasture when he's not nuzzling with Audrey or enjoying a brushing from his human friends.
Hazel is a Potbelly pig who was adopted from MSPCA. She was the first pig at the Sanctuary and lives next to Rue. She is 130 pounds of pure joy that loves to wag her tail and get belly rubs.
Bay Morgan Horse
Jules was almost 22, and was a Bay Morgan who came with Linnea Morgan from Dover, MA after foundering (laminitis). She was very gentle and we miss her very much after her sudden passing from a hidden cancer
Cheviot Cross SHeep
Lila came to the Sanctuary with her twins, Charlotte and Shaun. She is still very skittish and is adjusting to her new home. She is very protective of her little lambs but warming up to everyone around her!
