Help Save a Cow From Slaughter


Hare Krishna!

You can help us save a cow from slaughter. With your help, we can save a cow from slaughter as soon as we have the funds. We are asking for your help to purchase a cow, transport and take care of the cow for his/her whole lifetime.

For any donor of a thousand dollars we offer arthik and treats to the cows in your honor with prayers for your spiritual and material success. A video report will be sent to you of this event. The first donor of $1000 will get to give the cow a devotional name. Please read the article below to learn how you can help and the available additional benefits for all donors.

Save a Cow!

Cows come to see new rescued cow
Madhava, Sri and Madhavi are wondering, “Who is that cow walking out of the trailer?”

This year we have dedicated much time and resources to expand our pastures and clean up the ones we have with the goal to be able to save more cows. This month we plan to go to the auction to save one cow. We plan to save 1-2 cows a year until we have a number of 26 cows which is our full capacity. Right now we have 18 and since about half of our cows are in old age, that number will dwindle within a few years.

If we acquire one or two cows a year, it is not an overload for the ISCOWP herd to get acquainted with them and for the new cows to assimilate into the herd nicely.

We are headed for the auction barn as soon as we have enough funds from you, our members, to purchase, transport and care for one cow. The vast number of cows at the auction barn are being sold for meat and headed for the slaughterhouse. We cannot say what breed, or age, or gender cow we will come away with. It will simply be a mercy mission. We will see what cows are available for the first time when we arrive at the auction.

We would like to mention that 24 cows have lived out their natural lives protected at the ISCOWP farm. There have been quite a few living into their twenties which is a long life for a cow.

Rescued cows peacefully graze at ISCOWP - cow sanctuary
Instead of facing the butchers knife, the saved cow will be able to have some sunny days pasturing at the ISCOWP farm.

The first person to send us $1000 will get to name the cow or ox. The cow is also available for adoption and their picture will be on the ISCOWP web page as soon as we get them home. Whatever you can send to help save this one lucky cow will greatly help!

Any donor to ISCOWP of $1000 gets gifts and an arthik and treats offered to the ISCOWP herd in their honor. There are also gifts from us to you for other donations levels.
