Rowdy Girl

Rowdy Girl

Renée bought the cow she calls Rowdy Girl as a calf for $300 from her husband when the sanctuary was still a cattle ranch. She bottle-fed her and gave her all the love, nurturing and protection she wished she could give to all of the calves born on the ranch. A few years later, Rowdy Girl gave birth to Lucky, and then Houdini, so named for her early ability to escape from the property and go wandering. In fact, she escaped so many times that Renee’s husband told her they would have to sell Houdini. Renée refused. She had already gone vegan by that time, and she thought about finding a new home for Rowdy and Houdini at a farm sanctuary. But her heart kept telling her that what she really wanted was to convert the ranch into her own farm sanctuary, and save all of the cattle in her husband’s herd, as well as pigs, chickens and other farmed animals in need. She would call it Rowdy Girl Sanctuary.

Houdini

$50 per month  – $600/year

Houdini-2

Houdini

Houdini is Rowdy Girl’s calf and our natural escape artist. She kept escaping from the fenced in area around the ranch. The cops and all the folks along the highway kept coming to the door to tell us we had a cow out – it was always Houdini – she could slip through the fence like magic.  Finally my husband and I got Rowdy and Houdini in a separate fenced area and that is where they are now until we get a new fence along the mile and a half highway stretch on 35.

Cinnamon

$50 per month  – $600/year

Cinnamon

Cinnamon

Cinnamon comes to us from Brookshire, Texas; she is a full blood Brahman show cow with registration papers. Cinnamon came from a ranch has some 50 cows on it that are bred to show as a hobby. Unfortunately, because of the sad system we have, if a cow can’t reproduce, she’s considered “useless” to the business. This beautiful being was going to be slaughtered the very weekend we rescued her.  Cinnamon’s owner wanted to send her to the sale barn and she would’ve been slaughtered because she has a cyst on an ovary that deems her undesirable and of no use to a breeding facility for show cows. Cinnamon’s caretakers contacted us desperate for sanctuary after they saw our news story on Channel 13 in Houston.  Cinnamon has adjusted nicely to her new life at Rowdy Girl Sanctuary. Cinnamon is a God-send – she is truly the epitome of an old soul and her emotions are seen and felt.

Fireball

$50 per month  – $600/year

may 18-2

Fireball

Fireball is a year and a half old steer that came to us by way of someone I met in Brazoria a couple of years ago. She had been following my journey on FB and knew us when we used to have a concrete business a few years ago. In watching my posts she said she was inspired – she’s been vegetarian for a while and was now considering the vegan life. Then she told me about Fireball – her son raised Fireball as a baby in the FFA system – he loved Fireball and when it came time to show him, he didn’t win – he placed but was not the blue ribbon winner so he wasn’t going to pull in the real big money. My friend didn’t want Fireball to be slaughtered she told me so they bought him back and pastured him at a family members place. The family member that was pasturing Fireball is in declining health and they can’t care for him like he deserves and because they don’t want him to end up in the slaughter system, they called me and I was thrilled to give Fireball a forever home – My nickname for him is MR. HANDSOME.

Charger

$50 per month  – $600/year

Charger

Charger is a miracle. He came to Rowdy Girl Sanctuary because his student skipped out on him during the final hours of an FFA county fair. The student’s mom was left to care for Charger, and it was during that time with him that she began developing a relationship with Charger that she didn’t expect. She saw Charger as a cuddly teddy bear and found herself crying when she was with him as she considered his eventual fate. She called the sanctuary and together we found a way to make Rowdy Girl Sanctuary his home. And the Momma Bear, is now vegan.

Pepper

$25 per month  – $300/year

Pepper

Pepper came to Rowdy Girl because the family was desperate to find sanctuary for him after his best friend died suddenly of a heart attack. The wife didn’t know what to do with Pepper – he was always hanging out with her deceased husband and she knew that the right thing to do was to find a home for him because he was very lonely. Her biggest fear was that Pepper would end up on somebody’s plate or neglected. Pepper is loved by everyone at the sanctuary.

Gizmo

$40 per month – $480/year

Gizmo

Gizmo came to Rowdy Girl Sanctuary because of a very distressed 15-year-old FFA student that had not only fallen in love with her “project” animal but had become a vegetarian because of having to send her former pig, Chubbles to slaughter. The family came to Rowdy Girl and together we created a way to bring Gizmo to the sanctuary. The student, her sister and her Mom are now all vegan because of their experience with Gizmo and his new life at the sanctuary. They come weekly to volunteer and have created a lasting relationship with Gizmo.

Roux

$40 per month – $480/year

Roux

Roux was the first hog we ever adopted at Rowdy Girl. Roux is another victim of the FFA school “projects” that teaches kids to care for these animals in hopes that they will not develop an emotional bond. There are so many Roux’s in the world – If Roux could talk I know she would want you to know that pigs are “friends, not food”. It is because of Roux that we fell in love with the piggies and the students that opened their heart to hear their right to live and be free. Roux wants me to say thank you to Aunt Betsy! You know who you are!

Penny

$40 per month – $480/year

Penny

Penny is at Rowdy Girl Sanctuary because the student that raised her in FFA fell in love with her gentle soul. A volunteer approached us about the possibilities of Penny coming to RGS. At the time, we didn’t have an enclosure for Penny so we all went to work at doing all we could to save Penny from the fate of slaughter. Beloved animals like Penny go to slaughter every day because we live in a system that teaches us to choose violence over compassion when it comes to our food. Penny’s student has never come to visit because we heard that the family is afraid he’ll be influenced and go vegan. Meet Princess Penny – the result of kindness.

Animal Adoption FAQ’s

May I visit my Farm Sanctuary friend?

We love visitors at Rowdy Girl Sanctuary. If you would like to visit your animal, please email us at renee@rowdygirlsanctuary.org to set up a time to visit.

Does my animal friend have more than one sponsor?

Because it takes a lot of money to support a farm animal, it is often too costly for one person to fund all the individual needs of one animal. We depend on our generous sponsors to help with food, shelter, support and veterinary expenses. As a sponsor, your contribution not only provides for your adopted friend but it also goes into a general fund that works to protect all farm animals through Rowdy Girl Sanctuary’s rescue, education, and advocacy efforts. The more sponsors we have, the more animals we can rescue and care for.

How do I make my adoption sponsorship donations?

After clicking the Adopt button for your chose animal you’ll see four amounts and a drop down for how often your amount will be processed. Make sure to match the correct amount with the correct reoccurrence, ie. $10 weekly – $50 monthly – $150 quarterly – $600 yearly.

Automatic contribution programs are a convenient way to ensure the ongoing daily care of our shelter animals. They also cut down on administrative costs, which means that your contribution goes that much further to help the animals!
