Farm animal rescue is an essential and challenging task that involves the rescue and rehabilitation of animals from industrial farming operations or other situations of neglect and abuse. Many farm animals, such as cows, pigs, and chickens, are subjected to inhumane living conditions, including overcrowding, lack of veterinary care, and physical abuse. Animal rescue organizations such as ours, work tirelessly to provide these animals with medical attention, proper nutrition, and a safe and comfortable environment.

The rehabilitation process can take months or even years, depending on the severity of the animal’s physical and psychological trauma. Once the animals are healthy and strong enough, they are often placed in sanctuaries or adopted into loving homes where they can live out their lives without fear of abuse or exploitation. Farm animal rescue plays an important role in raising awareness about the cruel and inhumane practices of industrial agriculture and promotes a more compassionate and sustainable food system. It also demonstrates the incredible resilience and capacity for healing of animals who have suffered at the hands of humans.

Wild at Life e.V. does not forget farm animals and small, wild animals! Working with Ruesselheim e.V., we have already supported their work over the years.

In 2018, we adopted five rescues moments before being slaughtered:

1) Kilis – a beautiful baby miniature pig

2) Afrin – handsome little Piedmontese ox
We have named them Kilis and Afrin, in memory of our Syrian War Rescue in 2017 where we saved 13 wild animals (lions, bears, hyenas and tigers) from an abandoned zoo in Aleppo, Syria, and brought them all the way to Turkey. Kilis is a border city in Turkey situated near the Syrian border, where we spent days under the sounds of bombs, finalizing our plans and preparation before entering Syria. And Afrin, a city near Aleppo, where we crossed with our rescued animals.

3) & 4) Chis and Dennis – two rabbits

5) Hakan – a lamb

With our German partner Russelheim e.V., we continue to rescue animals in need in Germany.

Thank you Russelheim e.V. for the lovely pictures!
