Betsy Saul is co-founder of Petfinder and 911 Foster Pets and also owns a farm in North Carolina in which she cares for over 40 animals of all breeds, mostly ones that are older, have health issues or were in danger of being slaughtered. Most recently, and quite at the right time, Betsy welcomed two new animals to the farm: Cupcake the rescue horse, and Sylvester the donkey.
Although both these cuties were abused in the past, they’ve embraced their new lives and friends with open arms and for Betsy, who’s had a difficult year since her husband’s passing, these two new ‘souls’ as she called them, brought new joy to her life. “[They] immediately leaned on us like they’d been needing a big hug,” she shared. “We just got so dang lucky.”
Most remarkably is Cupcake’s newfound friendship with one of the farm’s goats, Spiffy, who he apparently loves to give baths to, just out of pure love, as Betsy says. “That horse gets nothing out of grooming that goat. It is purely just a kindness.”
