Virginia touching noses with baby

    Newer Older

    Virginia is an older ewe confiscated from a live-auction slaughterhouse. This is the type of facility where people could pick out an animal to be slaughtered on site. Several animals were down, unable to even walk. Some were lucky enough to be confiscated by Santa Cruz county animal services. Virginia is one. She and seven other goats and sheep came to Animal Place. (

    The slaughterhouse is still in business.

    Virginia passed away 4/19/2012, she was 10.
