In the animal world, there are animals that stay alone in life but when they get love from animals and become friendly their life change. And that’s what had happened with Helen, a blind bison at Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary. It had been more than 5 years since she had come to the sanctuary, but from the first day she had been quite nervous and had not socialized with the other animals, and therefore she had been living most of her time all alone.
Gwen from the Sanctuary had said to My Modern Met that as she was lonely they had tried to pair her up with pasture pals so that she can have a friend to be with, but she had not become friends with anyone. She had said that after about and year a rescued cow, Betsy had given birth to a calf named Oliver. And after Oliver was grown enough to walk around he had been to the field where Helen is and they have become friends.
Helen had received a lot of love from Oliver which she needs and they had become inseparable best friends. And she had even groomed the little fellow and also the color of Oliver’s fur had changed a bit to match Helen’s fur. After this Helen had been happier than she had been before and they spent most of their time together enjoying. And even though Oliver joined the cowherd of the sanctuary Helen wasn’t left out again as she became friends with other animals. After a rescued piglet named Uma had started to go and see Helen and they have become friends who share their meals very often.
And then Helen had been a foster mom to Italo, a calf that was also rescued by the sanctuary’s team. Gwen had said that, seeing Helen come out of her shell is incredible and that they are blessed to know her. And had said that Helen is the kindest, most patient animals that they have the pleasure of knowing. In the sanctuary, there are about 300 animals who have had the worst treatments in life and the team had said that they get amazed with the love the animals have and the way they are being loved even after going through a lot. Had said that their aim is to share the stories of animals among people and bring a change in the way they the society look at them. To know more about them check out their website and Instagram.
