Little Buckets Farm Sanctuary is a nonprofit vegan sanctuary in Virginia currently caring for over 50 animals, primarily farm animals. Little Buckets shows the public how farm animals have fun, loving, sweet personalities, have strong family bonds and friendships, and feel the same emotions as your domestic pets. We show there is no difference and that we should love all animals by living compassionately. We have very limited volunteers and 99% of the daily care for the animals, the farm, and keeping the nonprofit running is put on one person's shoulders. We hope to be able to continue to grow and save as many lives as possible in the future. With your support, we will be able to do that. #wecansavelivestogether In 2021, we were able to offer a new home to Sunny, a German Shepherd, who is heartworm positive and was showing signs of hip dysplasia, which later we did confirm he has, which was deterring adopters. Sunny came from a neglected, abandoned situation and our farm has become a dream home for him and he now has a new best friend, Colton, our animal whisperer. Colton welcomes all new rescues from baby calves to baby goats and welcomed Sunny with open paws.
Also, in 2021 so far, we rescued a one week old baby goat, Tidbit, who was born with neurological issues and blindness. She is using a cart to help her with her balance issues as well as help her gain strength being upright. Also, we rescued a one month old baby goat, Polly, who was born with contracted tendons in her front legs. We will be helping Polly with stretching/PT/splinting to help her gain full mobility. Polly is who is pictured. We also were able to help 3 other goats this spring - Blue, Feta, and Tidbit's twin brother, Titan. Last year, we rescued one week old twin boy baby goats who were both born with neurological and vision issues. They have made miraculous strides and now are able to run around the farm. They still have balance issues however with their determination and fight, they live a very happy life.
When we rescued Tidbit, Tater and Tot had to move out of the house and into the big barn. It has been a little bit of tough transition for the boys as well as this mom. :) Tidbit and Polly are living in the house but as they grow and hopefully make great strides, we will also hope they can move out of the house however we have a great need for a special needs area/barn closer to the house that will better suit these four cuties. In addition, it will allow us to continue to help special needs babies in the future. If you wish to donate to help with this special needs area/barn, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your love and support
