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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
