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-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.

Frosty

$50 per month  – $600/year

Frosty

Frosty is a pure bred Texas Longhorn! He came to us at 6 months old. When he came to Rowdy Girl he was very anxious and scared.  He paced the pen for almost two weeks because he missed his momma and family so much. You see, Frosty too was bred by a small breeder in Texas.  Keeping a bull calf is out of the question for these breeders and usually they are sold or given to FFA or 4H kids to raise and show in county fairs. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that these gentle animals will survive the show.  Most are sold and slaughtered. Frosty was still nursing up to the day he came to Rowdy Girl. Albeit he was getting his hay and sweet feed, momma was still in the pasture. Frosty is much calmer now – his sweet disposition is shining through. Now he’s very independent and will sometimes wander off alone to go explore.

Fireball

$50 per month  – $600/year

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.

Murray

$50 per month  – $600/year

Murray loves to play with hay

Murray came to us in 2016 from a horse sanctuary that did not have the resources to host him.

Representatives searched for a sanctuary that would take Murray and seven other cows.  After calling many sanctuaries that could not take them in, they found Rowdy Girl Sanctuary. We mobilized to make space for Murray and his friends, who are now living happily at Rowdy Girl Sanctuary.

Murray was severely malnourished when originally rescued and needed to be nursed back to health. He’s at a healthy weight, but his massive frame is bearing down on his joints and he has developed arthritis. His ankle and hoof often has had to be bandaged because of a chronic abscess.  After constant treatment and care, he hasn’t had a reoccurrence in several months. But he needs to take an anti-inflammatory every single day. He’s a good boy though! He gobbles it right down when it’s buried inside of a banana or an orange. Because he is considered geriatric we have to observe his condition daily to keep him comfortable.

Harvey

$50 per month  – $600/year

Harvey

We got the call on September 15th. Norman Tucker, found a baby calf that had taken up residence near the doorsteps of a Bar X homestead in Angleton, TX. Norman said that it appeared she had been in flood waters since Hurricane Harvey. Norman asked area ranchers if the calf belonged to them and no one stepped up to claim her. When we went to rescue her, Harvey resisted a little bit but seems she was ready for her next adventure. She had a skin condition called River Rot on all of her legs. She was thin and malnourished, in need of lots of milk replacement formula and care. Staff worked together quickly as they prepared her for her medicated bath. Now she is flourishing and playing with the rest of the herd as they have accepted her in.

Roo

$50 per month  – $600/year

Roo

Affectionately called Roobadoo, he is a pure Mustang rescued off the range from our niece. We have had him here a couple years, since before we were a Sanctuary. He has one blue eye and one brown eye and if you look just right, I swear you’ll see a unicorn glistening in the light. He is a very special boy – so sweet and affectionate – as loving as can be. He is last on the pecking order of the three horses but he has certainly won our hearts over. We make sure to sneak him treats so the other horses don’t try to steal from him! Roo will put his head over your shoulder to give you a hug once he gets to know you.

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.

Ivy

$40 per month – $480/year

Ivy

Ivy came to Rowdy Girl because the family cared so much about this baby that they could not bear the only other option looming in their face—euthanization.   They had tried everything and were in a state of despair.  Several unforeseen family circumstances had caused this loving family to be unable to give Ivy the care she was accustomed to as a spoiled little princess.  A beloved family member fell ill and came to live with the family and little Ivy was unable to cope with the changes and it caused her to be aggressive towards family members and guests.  Loan called me in tears, desperate for sanctuary for their beloved family member – they brought her here on the same day that Roux came.  Ivy is settling in beautifully and her, Roux and Herman are the best of buds.

Pepper

$30 per month  – $360/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.

Dee Dee & Dexter

$30 per month  – $360/year

Dee Dee & Dexter

Harlen works in the oil field and one day while driving around he came across little Dexter. He was under some piping, not moving, still had his umbilical cord and was under nourished, so weak he could not even hold his head up. They took Dexter in but then they came across the same exact scenario with Dee Dee. She had apparently fallen into some cactus and her legs and body were covered with thorns and she had ticks all over her ears, so they took her in as well. Roxann, Harlen, and their fur family were all happy until they realized these little boogers can jump. They made many calls to vets and ranchers, but they would eventually send to slaughter or use for breeding and that was unacceptable. Finally they did some research for animal sanctuaries and found Rowdy Girl as their forever home!

Rowdy Ducks

$25 per month – $300/year

Rowdy Ducks

We have all our ducks in a row here at Rowdy Girl Sanctuary! It has been an interesting experience seeing how they interact with each other. Just like any other bird, ducks have a pecking order. Quackers was the first duck to arrive to RGS (he is the one with the fluffy hat on his head). He came from a home where his family had been eaten by raccoons, and the owner didn’t want to see the same fate happen to him so they contacted us to rescue him. When we took him in he was very shy at first, he would hide in the corner and not walk around much. Soon after, we rescued two more ducks; Berry and Remmy. At first, Berry and Remmy would pick on Quackers since they were already a group. But one day, Quackers said he had enough of their bullying and he put his foot down. Now, after much of their quacking between each other, Quackers is the boss of the group and they all coexist together!

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!
