Divine Bovine Farm Sanctuary
Eugene, Oregon, a 501c3 Nonprofit Farm Sanctuary
- Since 2019 -
It all started with Lila, who fulfilled my dream of having a farm sanctuary. I would drive by a local dairy farm every day for three weeks, and see a beautiful Jersey cow out in the pasture, all alone. I finally stopped to talk with the farmer and learned that she was out in the pasture because she was lame. Working with the farmer, we were able to negotiate her rescue. We had to get our pasture ready for her quickly, which included fencing and shelter.
Once we got Lila settled into her new home, we had to take care of her injured hoof. Thanks to the help of many, we were able to take her to Oregon State University Large Animal Hospital. She is now able to romp around the pasture with Cooper, the little red steer that we rescued soon after. Cows are herding animals, and need companionship. We are so happy to be able to give these beautiful bovines a peaceful and safe home.
We are a 501c3 nonprofit farm sanctuary.
To rescue and give sanctuary to farmed animals in need by providing lifelong love and care while promoting compassion to all living beings through awareness and education.
