Sophie Maaa'rceau and her mom Matilda are part of a flock rescued from a backyard butcher in Lancaster. After visiting the property inquiring about other animals that had been posted for sale as “cheap meat” our founder saw Sophie and Matilda and pled to take them with her. After negotiating with the property owner, he agreed and they were on their way to a new life. Sophie will never be separated from her mother and they will live the rest of their lives together in our sanctuary, eventually joining the rest of our sheep and goat herd.
Both Sophie and her mom are very nervous around our caretakers and stick very close together with another sheep saved from the same property named Luna. We will give them all the time and space they need to settle in and decompress. We’re very much looking forward to seeing them both flourish!
