Bella and her son Mr. Rogers
“We rescued Bella when she was bound for slaughter and the truck she was on crashed. She clearly had not been treated well by humans. When she got here, she was stressed,anxious, and took lots of time to adjust. Shortly after her arrival we realized she was pregnant. She gave birth to her son Mr. Rogers. That was in 2010. And while she sometimes comes near the fence and takes a treat from us, she often hangs back. You may notice that Bella has an ear tag. Confining her to remove it would be stressful to her. That’s why it’s still there. She’s been through so much in her life already.
Since Mr. Rogers was born here at SASHA, he has only known love and kindness. He has no reservations about approaching humans because all of the humans he knows are kind to him! He also makes time for his mom. They’re inseparable.
Each animal’s story is different. And just like humans, they all adjust in their own way, on their own terms. And that’s just fine. What’s important is that they are safe here for the rest of their lives. “ — SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary
