Thanks to Sue Manning at the Associated Press, we learned this week of an amazing story of two blind cows, Sweety and Tricia.
Sweety was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Canada by Refuge RR, a horse sanctuary in Ontario, and needed a new home. So Refuge staff put the word out.
Farm Sanctuary in New York currently cares for a blind cow, Tricia, who was also rescued from a slaughterhouse. Tricia lost her companion last year, and has been sad ever since.
So the folks at the two rescues decided they needed to be together.
But it wasn’t so easy. There was lots of paperwork to be done to bring Sweety across the border. It took almost a month!
Eventually the big day arrived, and Sweety came to her new home and met her new friend.
