Donkey the donkey may be old, but you'd never know it. He has a one-of-a kind spirit along with a ferocious appetite. When he's hungry you will know!
Sam may be a pony, but he has the spirit of a Clydesdale. No question about it, Sam is the boss. Sam and Donkey were found as strays in Immokalee, Florida. Sam had an injury that left him with a limp, but he doesn’t let it get him down. Today, Sam and Donkey hang with their pal, Jazzy in the Yesahcan Sanctuary pastures.
Jazzy is a beautiful mini horse that came to us when her owners could no longer care for her. She quickly became best friends with Sam and Donkey and won over both of their hearts. Greet Jazzy with a carrot and she will be your friend forever!
When we moved to the Yesahcan Sanctuary, Harley and her mom lived next door in a pasture. After a few months, we woke up to Harley in our pasture! She knew the grass was greener and snuck through a small opening in the adjoining fence. After watching over her through a hurricane, we were finally able to track down her owner. Like the majority of cattle, Harley’s fate was to end up on someone’s dinner plate. Knowing we couldn’t let that happen, we made Harley an official resident of the sanctuary. Harley is full of personality and hangs with her friend, Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth could no longer calf, her fate appeared to be sealed and she was to be sold for slaughter. Thankfully, enough donations were raised to purchase her and her rescuer reached out to see if we could give Elizabeth a home without an expiration date. Elizabeth now roams the pastures with her best friend, Harley.
Petunia and her partner Paddington were found left in a vacant pasture in Palm Beach County. At the shelter, she gave birth to nine piglets. Due to the stress of being in a shelter, Petunia’s health began to decline. Fearing for her life, a dear friend of the sanctuary reached out to see if we could offer Petunia and her last pig, Walter, a home. Of course we said, “yes AH can” and the rest is history! Petunia spends her days laying in her mud hole and rooting in her wooded pasture.
When Petunia was ready to make the journey to Yesahcan Sanctuary from West Palm Animal Services, Walter was her last piglet that hadn't found a forever home. Not wanting him to be all alone, we decided he would also be a great addition! When he arrived, Walter was about 20 pounds, now he is around 200 pounds and continuing to grow. Walter is full of personality and is always ready for a belly rub!
These cool dudes came to us from a home that could no longer care for them. They love to chase each other around the sanctuary.
Albert Eggstein, now G-Easy, came to us from Palm Beach County Animal Services where he was found as a stray. Around this same time, we took in Ellie Goulding, who was also found as a stray in Arcadia. Ellie and her chicken companions had been surviving out in the woods, when her companions were sadly killed by a predator. Worried for her safety, a friend of the sanctuary was able to catch her and bring her to safety. Now G-Eazy and Ellie hang together at Yesahcan Sanctuary.
These two came from a home where the owner rescued them as chicks, but could no longer care for them. They now roam the sanctuary with their sisters.
Katy Perry was one of the original chickens we adopted that inspired us to open a farm animal sanctuary. Katy was the matriarch of the flock.
Beyonce came from a situation where they were being raised for meat. A friend of the sanctuary convinced the owners to give her up. Beyonce hung with her daughter, Arianna Grande and the other hens on the sanctuary.
Miley and Taylor were found as strays in Bradenton, Florida by the Bishop Animal SPCA. They may be small, but they make up for it in personalities! Miley and Taylor are best friends that love to hang with their sisters at the sanctuary. Miley has now passed and is missed very much.
When Tommy was found as a stray, he had such a terrible infection by his tail that it had to be completely amputated. This left poor Tommy incontent and deemed unadoptable. Because he was the sweetest cat, our vet's office asked if we could take Tommy to live out the rest of his life on the sanctuary and we said "yesWecan". The rest is history....
Seal's story is a bit different, where she ended up finding us. A week before Hurricane Irma hit Florida, we heard meowing on afternoon in the woods outside of the property. Curious to see what was going on, we went over to the sound and out came a small kitten that approached without fear. Knowing she was alone, we took her in. Seal now calls Yesahcan Sanctuary her home and hangs with her nine dog siblings!
In Loving Memory of Chester.
Chester was a one of a kind dog. He had a very loving nature and he is surely missed.
In Loving Memory of Kasha
Kasha was the leader of the pack. She was a great outdoorsy kind of girl with a loving personality. She is truly missed.
