The Four Main Rules

Disrespecting the Animals

At Ching farm rescue and sanctuary we have a zero tolerance policy toward any and all demeaning comments to, or about, any animal (whether that animal is currently living at the sanctuary or elsewhere. This includes “meat jokes”, calling an animal a food name and/or making reference to carnivorous food products.

Gates

Each and every time you go into or out of a gate or stall you must close and properly latch the gate or door. Animals are in their particular areas for important reasons. It can be a life or death situation for an animal who escapes from her/his area.

Animals’ Horns: Goats, Sheep and Cattle

Never touch or pet the head or horns of either the sheep, goats or cattle at the sanctuary. Instinctually goats and sheep use their horns to show their dominance over another animal. Touching or petting this area can be very dangerous as it can make them headbutt you or others. The cattle are very large and powerful and for the safety of everyone involved - do not touch any of the animals’ horns.

Chasing or Teasing Animals

No on is ever to chase, yell at, or act aggressively toward any animal on the farm. Beyond the more obvious running after an animal, if you walk toward an animal and they walk away, and you pursue, that is considered chasing.
