The 2-week-old calf was sick and starving. Confiscated during an animal neglect investigation, she needed a new home.
When Carly Henry heard about her, she thought she sounded perfect. "I was ready to adopt her,” Henry told The Dodo. “I just really wanted a cow! I’ve heard people say that the love of a cow is the best thing ever.”
Henry runs Carly’s Critter Camp, an animal sanctuary outside of Austin, Texas. She has rescued all sorts of animals who live on her farm, but this calf, being so young, would require constant care.
