New Hospital Will Treat Animals from Factory Farms

Farm Sanctuary’s Melrose Small Animal Hospital aims to provide emergency care to rescued animals.

Earlier this week, Farm Sanctuary celebrated the grand opening of its new animal hospital, built on-site at the organization’s Watkins Glen, NY shelter. The Melrose Small Animal Hospital will provide emergency veterinary services to what Farm Sanctuary calls “the victims it rescues from America’s industrialized food system”—animals such as calves, piglets, chickens, and goats, who often arrive to the sanctuary sick, injured, and malnourished. The state-of-the-art facility will be tailored to deal with the unique health troubles farm animals face as a result of cruel agricultural practices. “It’s hard to see animals who are just a few months old suffering from heart disease and other ailments because they’ve been genetically engineered by the meat industry to grow bigger and faster than is natural,” says Farm Sanctuary Shelter Director Susie Coston.
