Living in the country means being surrounded by farms and the animals that live and work at them. There are thriving dairy farms full of Holstein and Jersey cows. There are fields of Angus cows bred and raised for beef. There are farms that raise hogs, goats and chickens. There are horse barns, whether for breeding or boarding. Every farm has a different story, a different objective, mission or aim. There are small hobby farms consisting of families or individuals with their small group of various farm animals. Whatever the case may be, just as with domesticated cats and dogs, these animals also sometimes need saving too. Pack Ethic was not going to stand by and NOT help when these creatures called out to us. Eric was raised on a farm and with his knowledge and our dedication to the health and comfort of any animal great or small, we knew that we could try and make our own little bit of difference here in this countryside.
Pack Ethic reached out to an individual who suffered a fire in their barn and was unable to rebuild. A group of cows came to call this place home. They were so young when they were removed from their mother and sold at auction that they were all lacking in health and immunity. They were still so young when they were displaced by the fire and needed lots of TLC and good food. Now these cows can look forward to safety and comfort forever. They will never have to worry about going hungry or going to slaughter. They are home sweet home!
