Douglas Gets Hugged
Douglas turns 4 this year! He lives at Animal Place, a non-profit sanctuary in northern California.
Douglas is a "by-product" of the dairy industry. Unwanted male dairy calves are discarded at auction where people buy them for <$20 and raise them for backyard slaughter or veal. Douglas and four other calves faced that fate, but Santa Cruz County Animal Services rescued them all, after they were being starved nearly to death.
