Cows.

Betty was living adjacent to our new property and was pregnant with her fifth baby when we met her. She was a breeding cow, meant to have baby after baby until she was too old to produce "good stock," at which point she would be sent to slaughter. However, the rancher had a soft spot for Betty and asked us if she could live the rest of her days with us. We said yes and the next day she gave birth to her baby, Boop. Betty and Boop will get to live the rest of their lives together, showing us why cows are as deserving of a good life as every other sentient being.

By sponsoring Betty for just $10 a month, you are helping us give her top quality nutrition, basic medical care, and a loving, safe place to call home.

Boop came to us while still inside her mama's belly and the very next day she was born! Unlike most cows born into the meat industry, Boop will get to spend her entire life with her mama, knowing nothing but love and kindness.

Lucy along with a group we affectionately call the #fabfour🐄, was rescued at just 6-months-old, from the local dairy farm that was shutting down here on The Big Island. Until her rescue, Lucy never felt anything but concrete under her feet. Now she’ll be able to live her best life with us at BIFS as an ambassador, teaching people that cows are our #friendsnotfood.

Mamma is a five year old cow, and mommy to our baby, Mia. She has lived her entire life as a milk cow, being artificially impregnated, giving birth, and then having her babies taken away just so that humans could drink her milk. No more! Rescued from the now defunct Big Island Dairy, along with three other members of the #fabfour🐄, Mamma will live the rest of her life here at BIFS as the matriarch of our cow family, and will be able to raise her baby, Mia, without ever worrying about her being taken away from her.

Mia was just four weeks old when rescued from the dairy industry. She is the baby to our matriarch, Mamma. Unlike most dairy babies, Mia was born in a pasture and not taken from her mom because the dairy had been ordered to cease operations. Innocent Mia will never know the dairy industry and will live the rest of her life here at BIFS with her mom and the rest of the #fabfour🐄.

Renee was just 6-months-old when she, along with the other three members of the #fabfour🐄, were rescued from the local dairy farm that was being forced to close. She is special in color because she is part Holstein, part Jersey- two popular breeds for dairy cows. Until her rescue, Renee never felt anything but concrete under her feet. Now she’ll be able to live her best life with us at BIFS. She'll never know the horrors of the dairy industry and will, instead, be an ambassador, teaching people that cow hugs are life changing!

Teddy is one of four dairy calves we gave sanctuary to after being rescued from a now defunct dairy, by an amazing organization here on the Big Island. Teddy was very lucky because, had the dairy not been forced to immediately cease operations, he would have been born and then immediately killed or sold for veal or to be raised for slaughter. Today, Teddy and the rest of the #finalfour🐄 live free of fear and are respected for the amazing beings they are.
