Full Text Summary Of The Brochure:

Here’s The Open Sanctuary Project’s “So You Want To Rescue A Cow” text summary:

Panel 1: “So you want to rescue a cow? There’s a lot to know! The Open Sanctuary Project’s short introduction to what rescued cows need!”

Panel 2: “Cows: Big Hearts, Big Commitments-

Rescuing a cow for lifelong care in sanctuary is no small task! With your help, some individual cows can live for nearly twenty years or longer! But giving a cow a good life means a lot more than simply getting them out of a bad situation. Cows are thoughtful, complex beings who need attention and ongoing care beyond providing a green pasture and water.”

Panel 3: “Immediate Needs:

When a cow first enters your life, they may need urgent care from you, such as:

Health issues or emergencies
Hoof health concerns
Internal or external parasites
Malnutrition or overfeeding symptoms
Complex behavioral challenges or grief
Dental health challenges
Concerning herd dynamics
Unaddressed reproductive issues

It’s very important to have a realistic perspective of the challenges and costs before a cow enters your life!”

Panel 4: “A Lifelong Endeavor of Care-

Providing compassionate lifelong cow care means:

  • Finding a qualified bovine veterinarian
  • A high quality, planned diet for everyone
  • Monitored minerals and supplementation
  • A clean, safe place to live, play, and sleep
  • Daily check-ins and interactions for all cows
  • Health checkups on a regular basis
  • Immediate medical intervention when needed
  • Safety from frightening or dangerous things
  • A comfy dry spot to get out of the elements
  • An enriching, fulfilling life beyond the basics”

Panel 5: “Our Free Cow Care Resources-

We have a substantial amount of comprehensive, easy to follow guides written by sanctuary experts to help you provide the best life possible for cows.

We cover everything from initial intake considerations for cows, introductions between individuals, housing, feeding, safe enrichment strategies, and so much more. We hope that you’ll make ample use of our information to provide the best sanctuary environment possible for cows in need!”

Panel 6: “Learn more about The Open Sanctuary Project:
