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!

Brother Wind

Brother Wind was likely a racing horse for many years before being sold at auction. He was purchased for $300 at a price per pound, so we believe he was already quite emaciated and unhealthy when purchased. Five months later, he was spotted walking down Route 87 in Mehoopany completely emaciated. It was clear that he had escaped and was desperately searching for someone to help him. We received the call about him from a kind, concerned resident, and our founder, Indra, was able to negotiate his rescue from the family that owned him. He weighed only 975 pounds.

Today, Brother Wind is much healthier and has all-around improved immensely. He has a laid back personality and is a friend to all of the horses. He has unconditional love for all of them, particularly Satya. With a lot of TLC and a very healthy appetite, Brother Wind now weighs over 1,300 pounds and is strong and content.

Peep

Peep, along with her best friend Bo, was bred to be used as a game bird. 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.

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.

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. They were also 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!

Lucy Lou Goosey

Lucy Lou Goosey was rescued from a river by a kind couple back in 2012. She had injured her wing in the early winter and they knew she needed help before it got worse . 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.

Rupert

Rupert is a striking young cow who came to the sanctuary in 2016 as a very young, very fragile baby.  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.

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!

Chandra

Chandra was rescued in January of 2020. He was found abandoned on the side of the highway, emaciated and near death. A rough, rope-like, metal substance was embedded muscle-deep around his entire body. It had to have been wrapped very tightly for a very long time for it to be so deeply burrowed in his flesh. His pain must have been unbearable. The wound was severely infected, so he was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery to remove the material from his small body. He arrived at Indraloka late in the evening after his life-saving surgery and settled into his new home After surgery, Chandra began to gain weight, his wounds began to heal, and finally, he was accepting of love for the first time in his life. 

Today, Chandra spends his time rooting around his pasture and napping with his best friend, Mazzie. He is a sweet and curious boy who absolutely loves belly rubs and snacking on his favorite food, fresh fruit.

Wendell

Wendell was found wandering in a park in Clarks Summit, PA, in the middle of March, 2018. He was just a little baby, so a kind soul picked him up and brought him to Indraloka. There were no reports of lost piglets, and no one came forward to claim him. It is unclear how he ended up there, but it is quite lucky he was found when he was. It was a mild day when he was found, but there were many very cold days following his adventure that we are not sure he would have survived on his own.

Since arriving at Indraloka, Wendell has been a ball of energy and personality. He now spends his days with Blue, Isis, and Blackie- 3 other mini pigs who are now his close family. Wendell enjoys wallowing in the mud, laying in a cool baby pool on hot days, and rooting around the pasture looking for leftover treats. He really loves belly rubs and food, of course. Some of his favorite treats are peeled oranges and carrots.
