A big THANK MOO to our STABLE SUPPORTER monthly donors!
This year, we set a goal of having 100 monthly donors – and thanks to your loving support we’re getting closer every day. Heartland now has 90 generous monthly donors – and each and every day you keep our barn doors open for farm animals and the kids who love them! Thank you from ALL of us at Heartland.
Thank you, Foley & Lardner!
We are honored to recognize the law firm of Foley & Lardner for their outstanding commitment to Heartland. Attorney Toni Prestigiacomo answered our call for help – and have they provided some help! Foley & Lardner’s team of highly skilled lawyers provided extensive probono work including managing the contracts, permits, and negotiations for Heartland’s farm purchase. We couldn’t have done it without their help. Thank YOU from ALL of us at Heartland.
Animal Spotlight: Frosty
Frosty came to Heartland over three years ago, along with three other goats: Jake, Butch, and Dakota. A couple of women had them for nine years, but unfortunately were unable to continue to care for them and asked if we could take them in. At the time we had less than 10 animals and were more than happy to take in more! Sadly, Dakota passed away from cancer almost two years ago. Frosty is still close with Butch, and especially his buddy Jake. You can tell who Frosty is by his trademark ears that were frostbitten before he came to Heartland. That smile of his is another giveaway! He is a very sweet boy who manages to stay out of trouble for the most part. Frosty’s favorites include: head and back scratches, naps in the sun, cuddles with Jake, fresh grass, and bananas!
Heartland Farm Sanctuary, located in Verona, Wisconsin, is the only dedicated farm animal sanctuary in Wisconsin.
