This past week  Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary assisted an Ohio county humane society, Animal Charities, not once, but twice, with removing chickens from two different cockfighting raids in Mahoning County.  Animal Charities requested our assistance in the first raid after US Marshals attempted to serve a warrant on a man wanted for other crimes. Read the full story here and see how you can help!

david (2)Meet David – Cleveland Cruelty Case Results in New Residents at Happy Trails

David is one lucky goat.  Rescued in time unlike his friend Lucy, who was mauled and left to die.  David is now at Happy Trails and is signed over while charges are pressed against an owner who let the mauling of David and his friend Lucy occur at the hands of the ‘family’ dogs.  Why are goats kept in inner city Cleveland?  Why are there chickens on the property as well?  That is left for the police to figure out.  Happy Trails has the job to support the case, rehabilitate the one goat and 12 chickens seized in this case.  We can’t do it without you.  Please donate toward the care of David and his friends.

All 10 of the goats and Charlie the Calf are re-homed and doing amazingly well. Lives filled with love, attention and happiness, living as family pets. They each now have the opportunity to enrich someone’s life in ways never before imagined for them.  This is a far cry from the life they endured in the hands of their previous owner.
Thank you to all of our supporters and to Tim and Shannon, humane officers for Summit County. Together we continue to make a difference.
It’s why we do what we do.  Read about the trial and conviction in this Cleveland.com article.
