Without Ching Farm Rescue & Sanctuary, Sven would have found himself on his way to the slaughterhouse. This innocent, sentient being was part of program called "Discovery Ranch" for teens with behavioral problems. As part of the program, the teens raise a calf—but at the end of the program, they're sent off to be killed. The young teen girl who raised Sven pleaded with her parents to save him. Her mother purchased Sven and brought him to live a safe and happy life with us.
