Safe Haven's much loved sheep, Sprinkles, died on Friday December 26, 2014 after a valiant fight. She was with her best friend, Angel, in the barn at Safe Haven when she died.
Sprinkles had a tough beginning when she was rescued from a live market in the Bronx. At Safe Haven, she became a leader of the sheep and was often the first one to come over to human visitors. She is greatly missed.
The more we learn about farm animals, the more profound they appear to be. The less we know, the less important their lives. It is impossible to know them and not to respect them, not to care about how their lives are for them. -- Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson from The Pig Who Sang to the Moon
