The sight of an animal on the brink of death is always a tragic sight. Luckily, sometimes those terrible stories have happy endings thanks to the care and kindheartedness of others.
Recently, A newborn lamb covered in dirt and filth appeared outside of a barn at Edgar’s Mission, a farm animal sanctuary in Melbourne, Australia. It was 3 a.m. when the animal was dropped off with a note that said, “Can you please save this little lamb?” The tiny animal still had its umbilical cord attached from its birth just hours before. Her rescuers believe the lamb had also been trampled by other sheep, weakening her even more.
Edgar’s Mission immediately stepped in and did everything they could for the baby lamb, which they named Grace. They gave her a long bath, fresh food and a warm bed to sleep in. She was a fighter and gained strength with each day she was under their care. Now, she is a healthy and happy lamb who has captured the hearts of both the workers at Edgar’s Mission and people all over the world who have read her touching story.
Since her story has spread across the Internet, Edgar’s Mission has made an effort to keep everyone updated on how Grace is doing through updates on their Facebook page.
“Born only hours before, into the most inhospitable of worlds and bathed in excrement, freezing temperatures could not dampen this wee lamb’s will to live,” the organization wrote on a post describing her incredible recovery. She is now growing rapidly and thriving in her new environment.
It’s clear Grace has found a caring and comfortable home for life. If you want to find out more about Grace’s amazing recovery, visit Edgar’s Mission.
