Meet Our Sheep

 

sheep sheep 1

We currently have four Suffolk sheep that came to us from Utah in August 2007.

Their mothers were used in research and it was discovered that their unusual weight gain in the laboratory was because they all happened to be pregnant. So, as their mothers were receiving the pharmaceuticals being tested, the fetuses were receiving the same drugs in utero.

Their names are Amber, Ranger, Cathy, and Brad. 

 

The "Lina Sisters"

 The six Lina Sisters are Hanford Pigs, they arrived in October 2013 and were one year old. They were used in Pharmacokinetics (PK) research. They are affectionately known as Javelina, Rascalina, Rumblelina, Vandelina, Babelina and Greedylina.

Hanford labs started creating their own breed of pig for laboratory use in 1958. One of the breeds they used was a wild swamp pig from Louisiana.

They are very athletic pigs with loads of energy to play!

About our Cows

cows 2 Autumn, Valentine and Muffin are 3 1/2 years old Holstein cows and were used in reproductive studies. They left the lab and went autumn to a dairy farm; they were bred, each giving birth to a calf. Two of the cows developed a staph infection in their mammary glands after the birth of their calves while at a dairy. If they were to have another calf, this could happen again. The dairy returned them back to the lab.

They are now living they're happily ever after with us at Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary. They have plenty of pasture to roam and are often seen grazing with the horses.
