When Harley was purchased from a breeder by her last owner she was incredibly sick. She had hoof rot and a disease that left her unable to move for almost a week. Her family nursed her back to health, but she has lasting side effects from her illness and they were unable to continue to care for her. 

Harley then came to Wayward Ranch to have the best shot at a full and happy life. She may be a bit different, but we think her crooked jaw makes her that much cuter and we hope to find her a forever home that will love her as much as we do!

Ivy is one of the lucky ones. Like most sheep, she was born destined for slaughter, but luckily was saved by a kind family who hoped she would make a good companion for their horse. When they did not get along as they had hoped, the family made sure Ivy would still be safe and brought her to Wayward Ranch!

Ivy is the most affectionate and comical little sheep that there ever was! She loves the company of goats and chases them until they finally play with her! We are hoping to find her a forever home with plenty of sheep and/or goat friends!

Batman came to us with his triplet brothers Robin and Joker in August of 2018. Like many farm animals they were posted on Craigslist for rehoming, but luckily their previous owner genuinely cared about where they would end up and he was more than willing to have us take them and give them a safe home for life!

Batman is quite a climber and we'll often find him on top of his picnic table or flipped water trough. If you come in his pen with cashews, watch out because he'll want to climb right in your lap like a puppy!

Robin came to us with his brothers Batman and Joker from a small backyard farm where they were born and loved until they were 4 months old. Their owner then posted them for sale on Craigslist, which can be dangerous for farm animals as they may end slaughters or in abusive homes. They came to the Ranch so we could give them safe and happy lives!

Robin is the biggest of the brothers and loves to cuddle up to staff and volunteers. Sometimes he forgets what personal space is but we love him anyway!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident

Joker is the third brother of our permanent residents, the Gotham Goats. Like his brothers he was posted for rehoming on Craigslist but their owner was more than willing to let us give them a safe home to avoid the risk of them being mistreated or slaughtered in another home. 

Joker is the smallest of the brothers but has a big personality! His permanent smile that gave him his name comes from his underbite and makes him all the cuter! He loves to be brushed and spoiled by our youngest volunteers!
