Theodore was born in August 2021 on a farm in New Jersey that ran a breeding operation to sell sheep for their skin, wool, and “meat”. He was born to his mother, Willow, who had been living on the farm for many years being used for breeding. The farmer agreed to release Willow and Theodore because his operation became overpopulated, and we brought mother and son home to UNH.
Theodore was just a few days old when he was liberated, and lucky enough to never have to experience a life of suffering that millions of other victims of animal agriculture experience. Theodore is no longer at risk of being exploited or sold to be killed. He goes to sleep each night cuddled behind Willow, and enjoys each day hopping around the pasture and napping in the sun. He will grow up knowing his mother’s love and live a happy, fulfilled life at UNH.
