Rescue and rehome of bobby calves destined for slaughter in New Zealand.
Hello! We are Starfish Bobby Calf Project (a vegan rescue group) and we help to save the lives of a few bobby calves each year and provide them with forever safe homes. Starfish has been running since 2015 and in that time we have made a positive difference to the lives of many bobby calves. Bobby calves are between 4-10 days of age and are destined for slaughter. They may endure a truck ride of up to 8 hours and go without any milk for 24 hours before being killed.
We provide the love and care but we need your support to help us help bobby calves. Transport, milk powder, vet bills,
In New Zealand nearly 2 million are killed every year. We can't save them all but we can help some. Please support our efforts.
This year Starfish has helped 6 calves and found forever homes for them. Each calf costs about $800 to buy and raise. We support those raising the calves. The money we raise goes directly to their care. If there is an emergency and we need to step in we need the money in the bank to ensure we can do this.
We also continue to support and rehome any adult cows/ steers that we have initially rescued.
We can't do it without you.
Ongoing care including vet bills, milk powder, calf meal, warm coats, bedding and hay. We provide the love and care. Help us to save their lives.
