Animal Spotlight: Maxine
Maxine has been with Heartland since 2010. At only six monthls old, she and Beatrice were found rooting up someone’s garden in Milwaukee. It is believed that the two of them were most likely on a transport truck, and somehow they were able to break out and get away! They were transferred to Heartland and have been with us ever since. Two years ago, Maxine had a severe infection in her foot that led to her needing surgery to remove one of her toes. We were all so concerned about how she would be able walk and balance, and for a while it was very touch and go. Fast forward to today and one of our vets recently had to do a double-take – she couldn’t believe it was Maxine with how well she was moving! We all could not be happier!
Heartland Farm Sanctuary, located in Verona, Wisconsin, is the only dedicated farm animal sanctuary in Wisconsin.
