Unity Farm Sanctuary Needs Mobile Cow Hospital

Unity Farm Sanctuary urgently needs your help to purchase a veterinary grade “mobile hospital for cows”
(Cattle Chute Q-Catch 86 Series made by Arrowquip ). The pricing including shipping is $10,000. 

Why we need a “mobile hospital for cows”:
The mobile hospital cattle chute for the Sanctuary will safely provide the right enclosure to administer health care to all of our cows large and small. This includes hoof care, vaccinations, taking temperatures and all medical procedures. It would allow us to securely handle all of our cows from little Wallace to big Dudley. Crucially, it will keep both our cows and humans safe from injury.  You see, 1200-1800 pounds of uncooperative bovine buddy can hurt the humans trying to help them - but most importantly - the cows can be stressed or seriously injured without a safe restraint device. Dudley has a serious set of horns also! And Wallace will grow up to have an equally beautiful set of serious horns. At this moment, we do not have a safe way to properly vaccinate, or inject any needed medicines if one of the cows is ill.

The “mobile hospital” chute is a one-time purchase, as they are built to last. We chose this equipment because it is very adjustable which will allow us to work on cattle with or without horns, and cows of all sizes. This equipment was also highly recommended by other farms surveyed, who own and use it well. This past year we rescued three more cows (Wallace, Bob and Pal McTrouble, added to Dudley, Audrey Heifer and Elliot). 

Please donate to help Dudley and all his Bovine Forever Friends. No dollar amount is too small, each donation is wonderful. We especially deeply appreciate every single share of this GoFund Me Campaign to reach as many caring people as possible. Thank you for your kindness and consideration.

About Us:

Unity Farm Sanctuary: https://www.unityfarmsanctuary.org 
A non-profit charity dedicated to animal welfare. Founders Dr. John Halamka and Kathy Halamka created Unity Farm Sanctuary, a 5013C non-profit charity in late 2016. The mission of Unity Farm Sanctuary is to provide a safe and loving lifelong home for farm animals, to engage with the public to educate them, and to promote a culture of kindness and connection. Residents here include alpaca, horses, ponies, miniature horses, cows, goats, sheep, pigs and a vast array of poultry. We network with the community and other organizations to help as many farm animals as possible find loving lifelong homes. By working together with the community on topics such as farm animal care, sustainable organic farming practices, the power of kindness, and volunteerism, we hope to extend our impact for positive change for animals and people alike.

To further this end, we host Sanctuary Tours, educational workshops, wellness and creativity retreats, and are particularly proud of a variety of community service and volunteer opportunities for  adults, and students.  The Sanctuary is located minutes away from the MassPike in Natick MA, yet is worlds away from urban life in bucolic wooded Sherborn MA. 

Each rescue here arrives with a special story. It has been a particularly rewarding experience to see Dudley the Scottish Highland Bull settle in here at his new home. Dudley’s followers on Facebook exploded from a few hundred to 6000 almost overnight! This public awareness is spilling over to the Sanctuary, and the best-kept secret in Sherborn is now gaining recognition.
