Say hello to Humpty Dumpty a 30 something Sulcata Tortoise…
Thanks to our friends at the Department of Animal Services and Dr. Cecil, Humpty Dumpty has
a second chance at a much longer life… We believe Humpty Dumpty was chased by 1 or 2 dogs,
and as he was trying to get away from the dogs, he fell off a 10 foot retaining wall, onto his back,
cracking his shell. Put back together again, we hope he will be 100% by early Spring 2019.
Thanks to everyone who has sent Humpty Dumpty good wishes and donations for his care.
Special thanks to California Produce for their support. Thank you for visiting our website!
PIGS! PIGS! PIGS!
FRANCE & CROATIA (not pictured) are recent arrivals from the Pasadena Humane Society…
France aka Frenchie is a blind babe who just loves water. Not able to physically see, Frenchie
can feel the presence of humans and loves to follow her seeing eye humans around the ranch.
Due to her specialties, Frenchie and Croatia have been given sanctuary at the ranch. And we
couldn’t do it without the support of California’s Communities.
Please visit our Donation Page Today and help us serve animal relations like Frenchie.
Ferdinand’s Familia Rescue & Sanctuary has jump started the
RESCUE TO RECOVERY PROGRAM.
Rescue to Recovery in Action!
In 2008, women from a San Diego Residential Recovery home were some of the
first volunteers to help get the Rescue on its’ feet! Back then, horses were the
primary rescue & sanctuary animals at the ranch. Walking, grooming and picking up
poop for our equine friends was a Sunday afternoon event for both the women and
FAST FORWARD TO 2017! Thanks to Hector of Southwest High School and a local Residential Program, RESCUE TO RECOVERY is back on its feet and in action. Taking care of the chickens
and pot-bellied pigs in the rescue and sanctuary is keeping everyone busy.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to pay for transportation costs for
the women of the program, chicken feed, pig feed or any other farm need, please visit
our DONATE TODAY page on this website. EVERY BIT HELPS!

In early February, Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue became adoption partners with the Irvine Animal Care Center. Our first joint placement is ELLIOTT THE SENIOR PIG!
Elliott is fitting in great with all of the farm animals at the rescue ranch. Elliott’s roommate is another Senior Pig-MS. BECKHAM! These 2 old souls are full of love and enjoying their retirement.
Tours of the ranch are held on Saturday and Sunday mornings. If you would like a ranch tour, including meeting Elliott and Ms. Beckham, please contact Michael at 619.850.9442. If you would like to make a donation for our ongoing care of Elliott and other Senior Farm Animals, PLEASE VISIT OUR DONATE TODAY page on this website. All donations great and small are welcomed!
