In the latest episode of the Sanctuary Life Podcast, prepare to be deeply moved and inspired as we journey to Larwill, Indiana, to meet Jessica Wallace, the remarkable founder and director of Lopin' Along the Farm Micro Sanctuary. Jessica's unwavering commitment to rescuing and providing sanctuary to animals in need is nothing short of extraordinary. At the heart of her mission lies a profound dedication to animal welfare, offering a haven of love and care to those who have faced adversity, hardship, or disability.

Discover the compelling origin of the sanctuary's name, "Loping along," and the heartwarming story of Oscar, a disabled goat whose rescue sparked a transformation in Jessica's life. Dive into Jessica's incredible journey, from her early days rescuing cats and dogs at veterinary clinics to acquiring a farm and expanding her mission to embrace more animals, especially those with special needs. In 2020, a pivotal year marked by her transition to a vegan lifestyle, Jessica formalized the sanctuary's mission, turning it into a 501(c)(3) organization. Hear how a dynamic all-women board of directors united to amplify their message of compassion and advocate for a kinder world.

But the heart of this episode lies in the tale of Jack, a goat who defied all odds, transcending a severe spinal infection that veterinarians had deemed untreatable. Jessica's belief in Jack's potential for a quality life led her to take him home, and the journey of his incredible resilience unfolds before your ears. As Jack prepares to celebrate his second birthday, he becomes a living embodiment of the Farm Micro Sanctuary's unwavering commitment to animals with special needs.

Delve into Jessica's advocacy for ethical practices within the animal welfare community and the challenges she faced while transitioning from self-funding to seeking support for the sanctuary.
