This recent video posted on the Skylands Animal Sanctuary Facebook page is sure to put a smile on your face. Mike is the founder of the sanctuary and clearly, he absolutely adores Angel the newly rescued calf – and vice versa! Look how she nuzzles into his neck, closes her eyes, and even kisses him on the nose! Isn’t this the life every baby deserves, to be loved and adored?

As you can see, farm animals are not much different from your pets at home. They are affectionate, intelligent, and social animals – they also have their own preferences, dislikes, and personalities! Why love one and eat the other?


Angel is one of the lucky one,s but countless other cows born on factory farms will be sentenced to a life of abuse or death. Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue provides rescue, rehabilitation, and a voice for the voiceless. The organization also supplies life-long care and safe place to call home for these innocent animals and specializes in farm animal rescue.

Thanks to organizations like Skylands, animals that would most likely be sentenced to death are given a second chance to live happy, healthy lives, safe from human greed.
