Farm Sanctuary is an American animal protection organization, founded in 1986 as an advocate for farm animals. Here are the best of before and after photos of the farm animals rescued by New York’s Farm Sanctuary.
A motorist found Velma on a country road and took her to Farm Sanctuary’s New York shelter. She had severe pneumonia and her eyes were swollen shut.

Swoozie was rescued by a humane officer from a California Ranch where she was being starved to death.

Nikki and Babies Before
After massive flooding in the Midwest in 2008, thousands of pigs were abandoned in factory farms. Among them was Nikki, who managed to save herself and gave birth in a levee. She kept her babies safe until rescuers arrived.
Johnny Damon Before

Elliott was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn with a tag in his ear that said “MEAT.” He had recently escaped from a live animal market in New York.
