Meet Our Residents

Arthur 

our original resident!

Some call it luck, we like to call it fate. What was supposed to be a simple property walkthrough turned into a rescue mission like no other.

 

Arthur a little piglet at the time, along with other animals who are also now in our care, were abandoned on what was an old backyard butcher farm. 

 

We knew there and then that we were destined to turn such a horrible space into a positive environment for these animals and many more in the future.

Arthur brought us here, and thus Arthur's Acres was born.

Katniss

Katniss the beautiful gaint!

 

Katniss arrived to Arthur's Acres after being rescued from one of the most severe neglect cases in upstate NY this year.

 

Along with Rue and Prim, they were left to die in a small space no bigger than a dog shed, knee deep in their own feces.  We couldn't be more grateful to give them the life they deserve. 

 

Katniss is the leader on the gang, Standing at over 6ft tall on her hind legs, she's a force to be reckoned with, yet a gentle warm forgiving soul. 

Vivian

Vivian arrived to Arthur's Acres at just 4 months old with her sister Fay. Both surrendered from a laboratory where they tested on animals for their product. 

 

Within days both ladies bonded with Arthur and now where one goes, they all follow. 

 

Vivian is the curious sister, sticking her nose into every little nook and cranny .The first to greet you every morning and always by our side on the daily adventures. The two couldn't be more opposite and we love them all the more for it.

Joy

Joy arrived to Arthur's Acres at just 4 months old with her sister Wren. Both surrendered from a laboratory where they tested on animals for their product. 

 

Joy is very sweet but a bit timid but loves to eat shoes.

Princess

Princess came to us from a horrific backyard breeding operation. She was repeatedly used for breeding for over a decade while her piglets were raised for slaughter or sold on for profit. 

All she knew was a lonely life inside of a dark stall for over fourteen years. Not knowing what grass or sunshine felt like.

Now she will spend her days showered with affection, grazing in the pastures, living her senior years in peace and love. 

Cerri

Cerri, along with her 4 siblings and Momma, were abandoned on a foreclosed property. All kittens were just a few days old when we rescued them.

The family now has their own very own kitty heaven at Arthur's Acres where they get to play and explore all day. 

 

Cerri is the fearless kitty, always finding the tallest ledge to jump from, or smallest hole to climb in. 

Brooklyn

Brooklyn along with her 4 siblings and Momma were abandoned on a foreclosed property. All kittens were just a few days old when we rescued them.

 

The family now has their very own kitty heaven at Arthur's Acres where they get to play and explore all day. 

 

Brooklyn is our resident speed demon. If you stand there long enough Brooklyn will most likely use you as his very own cat tree before you know it.

Charlie

Charlie is by far the bravest rooster you'll ever meet. 

Charlie was abandoned on the property for months before we moved in. We tried numerous occasions to catch him with no luck. Finally, within days of us moving in, we caught Charlie.

 

He was absolutely terrified for weeks, with good reason to. We knew Charlie needed immediate love and no better than a beautiful flock of rescued hens to do just that!

Instantly Charlie was a changed rooster. He stands proud with his ladies and is no longer fearful of humans.

We have a special place in our hearts for Charlie, the bravest rooster of them all.  

Bella

Bella, along with 4 of her flock friends were being sold on craigslist because the farmer no longer wanted to care for them.

 

Upon convincing them to surrender the lovely ladies, they became our first rescue of Arthur's Acres !

 

Bella is quite the beauty. With the most beautiful fluffy feathers you'll ever see. She's never far from her gang, exploring the stalls and the surrounding pastures at their leisure. 

Margery

Margery was found by animal control tied to a tree with Julia.

 

She was taken away from her owner by law enforcement and will now get to live the good life at Arthur's Acres.

Unlike her buddy, Julia, she is very shy.

Prim

Prim arrived to Arthur's Acres after being rescued from one of the most severe neglect cases in upstate NY this year.

Along with Katniss and Rue, they were left to die in a small space no bigger than a dog shed, knee deep in their own feces.

 

Like Katniss, Prim shows no fear and is a boisterous lass with a beautiful personality. She is always smiling and welcomes a treat. We're confident she'll be accepting belly rubs in no time!

                        

Fay

Fay and her sister Vivian arrived to Arthur's Acres at just 4 months old. Both surrendered from a laboratory where they tested on animals for their product. 

 

Within days both ladies bonded with Arthur and now where one goes, they all follow. Fay is the reserved sister, comforted by her sisters presence.

A little timid at first but soon warms up to you once she knows she's safe. And forever safe she will be.  

Wren

She arrived with Joy and has a very distinct look because she has 2 different colored eyes.

 

She is the bolder of the two and a true explorer.

Max

Max fell off a transport truck . A couple was driving and saw something dart across the road . They had no idea what it was so they pulled over and little Max ran up to them sick and hungry .

 

We were able to track down the farmer and they agreed to surrender him because they did not want to care or pay the medical bills for a sick baby . Now Max will live the rest of his wonderful life at Arthur’s Acres!

Ashley

Ashley, along with her 4 siblings and Momma, were abandoned on a foreclosed property. All kittens were just a few days old when we rescued them.

The family now has their own very own kitty heaven at Arthur's Acres where they get to play and explore all day. 

 

You'll always find Ashley playing with her siblings, chasing her Momma's tail or trying to scare one of her sisters from underneath the couch.  

Momma

Momma along with her 5 kittens were abandoned on a foreclosed property.  

 

Once a feral cat, she is now a loving warm affectionate beauty who loves to snuggle on your lap.

 

She is a wonderful mom to her babies, becoming ever more playful with them and humans as the weeks pass.

Autumn

Autumn, along with 4 of her flock friends were being sold on craigslist because the farmer no longer wanted to care for them.

 

Upon convincing them to surrender the lovely ladies they became our first rescue of Arthur's Acres !

 

Autumn is the adventurer of the group, often the first to explore a new pasture, stall or room. Fearless she is, and we love her even more for it.  

Foxy Roxy

Roxy, along with 4 of her flock friends were being sold on craigslist because the farmer no longer wanted to care for them. 

 

Upon convincing them to surrender the lovely ladies, they became our first rescue of Arthur's Acres !

 

Roxy AKA Foxy Roxy is exactly that! She struts around, making herself known everywhere she goes.

Rue

Rue the wee runt of the family. 

 

Rue arrived to Arthur's Acres after being rescued from one of the most severe neglect cases in upstate NY this year.

 

Along with Katniss and Prim, they were left to die in a small space no bigger than a dog shed, knee deep in their own feces. 

 

Rue is the shy lady, naturally still unsure of people and new places. She looks to Prim for security. We have no doubt she'll soon feel settled in her forever home.

King Karl

A few months ago, there was a post on Farm Sanctuary's Facebook page looking for a home for a big beautiful 10-year-old breeder pig named Karl (920 pounds).


He was used for breeding and was never allowed outside. A pig used for breeding, is usually sold to slaughter when they are deemed no longer useful, so it is very rare that someone would release a pig like Karl.

I truly believe everything happens for a reason and we couldn’t be happier that he found his way to us.

Wilbur

Wilbur is the first potbelly pig we welcomed into Arthur's Acres. Wilbur was abandoned at a New York City shelter in terrible condition.

 

Like most potbellies, it is believed he was once considered a "teacup" pig and abandoned once he outgrew his infant size. 

He now spends his days happily roaming the sanctuary grounds with endless pastures to forage in.

Joaquin

Joaquin was found wandering a horse farm for a few days and no one was claiming him. The woman who initially rescued him was until to keep him because her dogs were attacking him, so I told her get him to us ASAP.


He is about 6 months old and I believe he is  KuneKune which means “fat and round” in the Maori language. These tasseled, sweet-tempered, medium-sized pigs hail from New Zealand. While no one knows for sure, they are thought to be a cross of Berkshire, Poland China and possibly Gloucester. 

Tony

Tony, along with his 4 siblings and Momma, were abandoned on a foreclosed property. All kittens were just a few days old when we rescued them.

 

The family now has their very own kitty heaven at Arthur's Acres where they get to play and explore all day.  

 

Tony is the big brother of the group, a keen observer and confident cat. Always keeping a watchful eye on his playful sisters, brother and mother.

Farm Dog Lyle

Lyle was destined for euthanasia after being labelled "aggressive" at a high kill shelter.

When he was rescued, it was soon very clear that he simply needed a safe loving home.

 

He is now the gate keeper of Arthur's Acres, watching over all of the residents. He is right by our side at the crack of dawn to feed the animals and won't rest until everyone is safely tucked away for the night.

When he does relax you'll find him sleeping softly in someones arms, feeling safe, loved and cared for. 

Stevie

Stevie, along with 4 of her flock friends were being sold on craigslist because the farmer no longer wanted to care for them.

 

Upon convincing them to surrender the lovely ladies they became our first rescue of Arthur's Acres !

 

Stevie is the expert groomer of the flock. If she isn't making sure her beautiful white feathers are in peak condition, she'll be off helping charlie or one of the girls brush up on their grooming skills.

Julia

Julia was found by animal control tied to a tree with Margery.

 

She was taken away from her owner by law enforcement and will now get to live the good life at Arthur's Acres.

She is very sweet and loves people and seeks out attention.
