Meet Our Residents

Our animal ambassadors call Changing Hearts Farm home because their very lives were in danger.

 
Each has braved abandonment, neglect, abuse, or the threat of slaughter and the pain from all those injustices. This is why it’s integral to our mission to provide our rescued residents with the care and love they richly deserve.

We treat every resident as the individual they are, providing safe housing and uncrowded, open pastures to graze, root, run, play, and relax.

THE COWS

These gentle giants are peaceful creatures who form strong bonds.

Not only do they love to forage, romp around in the field, nuzzle and groom one another, but they are also incredibly loving and patient with other animals and towards humans.

We have a lot to learn from cows!

THE HORSES

Horses are magnificent.
It is no wonder that there are so many “horse lovers” out there…

And you can certainly count us among them!

Despite their magnificence, instead of receiving the care and respect they deserve, like most other animals who share our planet, horses can be subjected to a host of treatments and practices that are averse to their nature and cause them harm.

THE PIGS

Pigs are utterly charming animals.

They are curious, playful, and possess high levels of intelligence, both cerebral and emotional.

Despite these qualities, commercially bred pigs suffer through lifelong confinement.

THE GOATS & SHEEP

Goats have a reputation of being hard-headed and curious to a fault.

A reputation that is well deserved.

It’s their inquisitive natures that drive them to explore, and for a goat exploring means they use their mouths. Leading to the myth that goats will “eat anything.”

The truth is—they’re very picky eaters!

In the end, goats are smart and loving creatures who deserve the best in life.

THE CHICKENS

Chickens are a delight to spend time around!

It quickly becomes apparent that they have strong cognitive abilities and communication skills.

There is ample evidence to suggest that these birds are highly intelligent and capable of comprehending relationships and even anticipating the future.

IN MEMORIAM

The rewarding and uplifting nature of rescue work also has a downside—the inevitable moments of loss.

Sometimes of the natural order, other times tragic—it is never easy.

Whether caring for an individual for years, or in a few cases merely days or only hours, there is a deep and abiding absence in our hearts when we lose a beloved member of our family.

Here we seek to honor those who have come and gone so that their memory lives on.
