Houdini was rescued when he was only one day old. Like all male calves, he was quickly separated from his mother and was scheduled to be sent to a veal farm. At veal farms, male calves like Houdini are kept in small, filthy, isolated crates to keep their muscles soft and tender for eating after they are sold at 20 weeks old. We are grateful that Houdini was able to escape this horrifying fate and spend his life with us at Indraloka.
Houdini is one of our largest animal beloveds, and he has been with us the longest out of everyone in the cow herd. His old age and size have caused him some health issues as he has struggled with bouts of arthritis, but with some extra care and close work with his vet, he is enjoying his time as leader of the herd, snacking on apples, and lounging in the sunlight in his brand new, beautiful pasture.
Houdini would love for you to join his Circle of Compassion. You can join it by sponsoring him with a monthly donation of any amount. To join Houdini’s Circle of Compassion and to help cover the costs of his nutritious food, warm shelter, and medical care, click the button below:
