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.
Murray is available to sponsor in our Adopt an Animal Program. Read about it here.
