Running an animal sanctuary has its perks, namely, you get to hang out with adorable farm animals every day! But the job also comes with grave responsibilities and sometimes rescuers are forced to wade into horrifying situations in order to save animals in need.

The rescuers from Santuario Igualdad Interespecie, an animal sanctuary in Chile, encountered one of these shockingly brutal situations on their last rescue mission. They got a call about a fire on a sheep ranch and they immediately got in their car and made the two-hour drive. When they arrived, most of the sheep had perished in the fire and the 50 that survived had already been sent to the slaughter house. But undaunted, Santuario Igualdad’s team began to pick their way through the charred rubble in the hopes of finding some surviving sheep – and they did! Here is the story of the two surviving sheep Dorothy and Anne.
The rescue team arrived on to a hellish scene of scorched earth and smoke. The team began to look for survivors and discovered Dorothy huddled under a thicket of thorns.

Even though these sheep are in Chile, you can help them by donating to Santuario Igualdad Interespecie. Your donation will help to buy food, provide shelter, and give medical care to these sheep. You can also adopt one of these girls by sending them a monthly donation and ensuring that they are happy and safe for the rest of their lives.
