We were devastated when June passed away on Friday, January 18th after not responding to emergency care and cpr. Her 3 week old daughter Alice has been under the care of our founder, to live on in her mothers memory.
Her original bio on intake-
June and her daughter Alice arrived from a property in Lancaster after being advertised for sale, her babies advertised as cheap meat for sale and she would stay on the property to be used for her milk. We visited and pled with the owner to let us take both mother and daughter (who we were told was part of a set of twins, one had already been purchased). After much time he agreed and we swiftly loaded them to bring to the sanctuary. June will never lose another baby, they will safely live out the rest of their lives together. We’re so excited to see this pair grow and settle in. She is a fearless mother but has been very gentle with our team when they need to work in her space or take her daughter Alice for exams.
