Sylvia's Story

When an ARC member asked us to save a pregnant "beef" cow on the way to the stockyards, we weren't sure how to help. Thanks to Full Circle Farm Sanctuary who was able to take her, Sylvia will now live out her life, with her calf, and all the other rescued animals at the sanctuary, in peace and freedom, surrounded by gentle loving friends, as all beings deserve.

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us, 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

-Albert Einstein
