Meet Bali & Kai

At the end of October 2014, Bethany Karn took her niece to a pumpkin farm near Kitchener, Ontario. Off the beaten tourist-track she saw Kai: the big-eyed Jersey, chained and alone in his enclosure. Too often we steel our hearts, accept “the way things are” and move on. But Bethany felt this one calf’s call; this one being should not die.

From this melding of hearts, a network of responders sprang into action: Ontario sanctuaries contacted, negotiations with the farm initiated, transport arranged. Brenda Bronfman, Wishing Well’s founder, stepped forward on learning there were two calves bound for slaughter, not one—and insisted on taking in both. Welcome home boys!
