Jake & Elwood
Jake (black & white) and Elwood (tan & white) were the very first rescues
to Mountain View Sanctuary in September 2015.
They were rescued from slaughter at ages 12 weeks and 8 weeks, Elwood died 9 days after his rescue in my arms due to pneumonia, we tried to save him from day 1.
Jake was then given a 50% chance of survival, thankfully he made it, Our logo is designed in Elwoods memory.
Resident Spotlight
White Buffalo Rescue
We need your help for our latest rescue, arriving to Mountain View Sanctuary. We were contacted by a wonderful person who had knowledge of an animal, someone in need of immediate rescue. She was going to be killed, skinned and decapitated, with her skin and head put on display.
💜This animal is a White Buffalo (bison). She’s been having some behavioral issues as of late and her owner is elderly. Along with that his wife has medical issues. With everything he decided it was best to get rid of her. I was told she’s around 3-4 yrs old.
He had a large offer for her skin and head; Which prompted him to make the date for her slaughter. The only way to save her way to match his offer. Thanks to this group of people and a donor who wishes to remain anonymous, made the generous financial donation to secure her safety, instead of being murdered and put on display, she is saved and will live out her days at Mountain View Sanctuary. We need to raise as much as we can for the corral panels, hay and to donor back. We didn’t have the funds to save her, and she didn’t have time for us to raise them…so this amazing donor stepped in to save her life. 🙏 We desperately need corral panels to make sure her area is extra secure, feed, hay, and transportation help. If you have anything that you can donate to us (corral panels, feeders, troughs, fencing, T-posts, wooden posts, hay etc) PLEASE reach out to us so we can arrange to take it. 💜To many people, a White Buffalo is sacred. To others, nothing but a wall decoration. We choose to believe every animals life is worth saving and hers is no exception. They truly are sacred. 🙏 PLEASE consider donating any amount at all, no amount is too small to help.
