In early 2020 when the UK was in lockdown, I was living in a field in the centre of Cambridge as part of a cattle herd being reared for beef. Every day, a boy named Ashwin would journey through my field on his daily walk and I would approach him and say hello. Ashwin was living on his own at the time, away from friends and family, and so by the summer we were the very best of friends.
As more time passed, Ashwin couldn’t bear the thought that I wouldn’t get to see another summer, so he contacted the farmer who owned me, and I was safely transported to Goodheart. I have settled in really well and can now spend the rest of my days in comfort and freedom.

We do not currently have any calves at Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary. By adopting Rufus the cow, you’re helping us to expand our sanctuary offering and provide a home for many more animals in the future.
There is no limit to the number of people who can adopt one of our animals. This allows as many supporters as possible to connect with and learn about our rescued residents through the adoption boxes and email updates.
When you adopt a cow like Rufus or Duncan, you’re helping care for them and their rescued friends at the sanctuary, as well as contributing to our wider work as an animal rescue. Your generosity helps us with things like maintaining our sanctuary site, planning fundraising events, and funding exciting projects like our Goodheart Home for Rescued Hens!
