Eve

Eve was found wandering the streets of Scranton on Christmas Eve 2020 when a kind family found her and took her home to safety. Unable to provide her with the life a young pig needs, they contacted us in hopes that we could give her a forever home. Still trying to finalize our move and raise enough funds to get everyone to Dalton, we were not prepated to rescue another animal. But we couldn’t bear the thought of her gighting for survival in the cold. Can you imagine how frightened she must have felt, all alone?  We were grateful to answer that call with an enthusiastic “Yes!”

Greeting us with kisses and grunts every day, she loves all of the human animals at the sanctuary, and has been made quick friends with the non-human animals as well. She has been rolling for joy- literally! Watch the video below to see just how happy she is to be home.

While she was healthy, a great weight, and happy at the time of her rescue, she did have some overgrown hooves that needed attention, and had irritated skin on her backside- both of which were addressed after a vet visit and some easy treatments.

Eve would be delighted to have a sponsor. Just imagine how much more she would be rolling around if she knew you wanted to help provide her the happiness she deserves! Her care costs about $3,000 a year, but you can sponsor her for any monthly amount or even a one-time gift. Click the button below to join her Circle of Compassion!

 

Miss Lily Pie

Miss Lily Pie was found wandering I-78 in Allentown on Easter Sunday in 2015. A kind woman stopped, put her in the back of her car, and found a horse farm to care for her temporarily until she was able to find Lily sanctuary.

Today, Lily is known for loving food. She might be the most food-motivated individual at Indraloka. At the very least she sounds like it! Many of us have attempted to break her incessant screaming when it is time for breakfast and dinner, but it appears Miss Lily Pie is as stubborn as she is hungry. Lily spends her days rooting and napping with her best friend, Dominic. She loves treats, especially pineapples.

Rupert

Rupert is a striking young cow who came to the sanctuary a very young, very fragile baby in 2016.  Discovered on a roadway as an unrecognizable ball of fluff covered in road rash, a kind girl in her prom gown stopped to check on him.  Realizing his dire need for food, water, and shelter, she kindly chose Rupert’s freedom over her own high school dance and took him home to be loved and nourished by her family.  While we prepared space for his arrival at the sanctuary, Rupert very willingly drank from his bottle, tested his wobbly legs, and received ‘round the clock care from his kind foster family, and it was determined that when he was picked up he was only a day or two old. 

When he arrived at the sanctuary, Rupert was confident and charismatic, and his favorite activities were running with human friends in the open grass, playing with a lamb named Marble, and knocking on doors and windows with his nose at bottle time.  Rupert was likely planned for veal, but instead, he is an affectionate, funny, still growing boy.

Peep

Peep, along with her best friend Bo, were bred to be used as game birds. We were lucky enough to rescue them as tiny ducklings before they were big enough for that fate.  When they first moved in, Lucy Lou Goosey, a goose, took them under her wing and raised them as her own until they were old enough to be ducks on their own.

Peep loves to swim and play, and especially loves hanging out with the big pigs. Since Bo moved on to the star world, Peep has made friends with the other ducks and the turkeys. If she’s not hanging out with her friends, she can usually be found in the big pig house nesting peacefully in the hay. Peep can fly, but if she ever decided to go on an adventure, she always quickly returned to her favorite spots at the sanctuary close to her friends.

Lucy Lou Goosey

Lucy Lou Goosey was rescued by a kind couple from a river where she had injured her wing in the early winter. With the help of a veterinarian, it was determined that Lucy would not be able to fly again until the next spring so the couple provided shelter for Lucy for those months of healing.  Unfortunately, when the spring arrived, Lucy could not fly, and the likelihood of ever flying again was very small.  Recognizing that the goose needed feathered friends and space outdoors, the couple brought her to the sanctuary with hopes of creating a new and fulfilling life for her with a flock of her own. 

At that time there was a flock of motherless ducklings and Lucy gladly helped raise them.  Since that time, Lucy Lou has developed close relationships with many ducks and geese, and she is the strong leader of her flock.

Patricia Marie

Patricia Marie joined the Indraloka family in November of 2019. She was rescued with her two sisters LaVerne and Maxene from a hoarding situation. The three were named after the Andrews Sisters of “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” fame.

When they were first rescued and brought home to Indraloka, they were very sick with a respiratory infection, underweight, and malnourished. But with a lot of loving care and delicious, healthy food, they made a full recovery and were finally able to live their lives comfortably, happily, and at peace.

Patricia is a beautiful turkey. She is also brave, inquisitive, and loyal to her friends. You will find her the first to investigate any work being done or treats being handed out! Patricia and all her feathered friends can’t wait to see the new place in Dalton!

Dominic

In a last-ditch effort, Dominic escaped from slaughter transport and evaded the humans around him to hide himself, trembling, in a pile of hay. He was found by a kind woman from Omega Horse Rescue, who begged the “kill buyer” to spare his life. Dominic was granted 24 hours grace in which his rescuer must find him sanctuary.

After many calls to several sanctuaries, and with a team of compassionate humans from New York to Canada working to find him safety, Dominic found his home at Indraloka. When Dominic arrived, he leaped from the transport truck yet again and rushed into his quarantine stall. He enjoyed a fresh salad and greeted everyone with a sniff and a smile.

Dominic now lives with Miss Lily Pie and Gavin and is truly a silly pig. He has learned a few bad manners from Lily, namely screaming for his breakfast and dinner with no apologies. However, his very favorite time is when he receives treats and produce. Dominic loves to grab his favorite foods from the pile and take them around in his mouth, with his head tilted upwards, making sure he shows everyone what he has!

Mazzie

Mazor Ner Tamid (Hebrew for Healing Eternal Light), or “Mazzie” for short, was rescued from an extreme case of cruelty and neglect by Humane Law Enforcement. He was brought to Indraloka with six other animals- four turkeys and two goats, all of whom had been living in deplorable conditions: unsafe, unsanitary, and without proper medical care. It appeared that Mazzie had suffered some sort of trauma to his back that left his spine deformed, causing partial paralysis. Because of this, he was only able to move on three legs and was barely able to move around on his own. At the time of his rescue, he couldn’t even evacuate waste without our help.

We kept a close eye on him. We nursed him to health as he slowly came to trust us, and with proper medication, physical therapy, and a whole lot of love, he began to improve immensely. He was offered a wheelchair, however, he eventually gained so much strength that he was able to move around more easily without it!

These days, Mazzie spends his days with his best friend Chandra, and he spends most of his days rooting in the sun, and yes, walking around on his own! Watch the video of him and Chandra:

Nanda Sadhu

Nanda Sadhu, often referred to as just Sadhu, was rescued by a group of doctors on Long Island. One of the doctors had been purchasing milk from a local “humane” farm, and asked about a sign advertising veal for sale. They were shown four baby cows and learned that veal is actually a byproduct of dairy. With this heartbreaking realization, they immediately began to negotiate for their release and successfully convinced the farmer to spare their lives, but he gave them just a few weeks to find them a home. Nanda Sadhu and his two brothers, Diraj and Lakshman, and one sister, Rachel, arrived at Indraloka in March 2018.

Nanda Sadhu is the timidest of the siblings. He arrived as the smallest, though he quickly caught up in size to his brothers and sister. He prefers the company of his siblings rather than the company of humans but does enjoy a good scratch around his horns. He loves lying down next to Rachel and relaxing, and he enjoys snacking on fresh watermelon.

Sora

Sora is a mellow lady who always takes the lead. As a little chick, she and hundreds of others were in cages on their way to slaughter when something extraordinary happened: cages containing hundreds of baby chickens fell off of the truck that was transporting them. As luck would have it, an Indraloka volunteer who was driving by saw the accident and called us right away. We were honored to take in Sora and 78 of her friends.

Sora spends her time hanging out with older chickens as well as the turkeys. Though she is very independent and enjoys doing her own thing, she is a natural leader; most of the other chickens join in whatever she is doing.

She is chilled out most of the time but knows when to switch into hyper-drive, like when it’s treat time! Sora loves being held by her favorite humans, especially when they bring her tomatoes- a particular favorite of hers!
