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.

Animal Spotlight: Opal
Opal came to us in May of 2013 along with Michael, her goat friend. They both came from an incredibly difficult situation that left them both very ill and malnourished. Opal arrived to Heartland pregnant, but was so sick that she sadly lost the baby. In happier news, Opal and Michael have both grown and healed beautifully, and their sad life from before is only a distant memory. Opal is a beautiful goat that can be tough playing with the other goats, but absolutely loves to cuddle with people. She is very social and gentle with kids and adults alike. Opal’s favorites include: neck scratches, climbing to the highest point possible on anything, sneaking out of her stall, taking naps curled up, lounging in the sun, fresh grass, and head butting with Zeus.
Heartland Farm Sanctuary, located in Verona, Wisconsin, is the only dedicated farm animal sanctuary in Wisconsin.
