giving back . . .
nomadic hearts was born from the burning desire to do more to help the voiceless and forgotten: farmed animals. we are an official corporate sponsor of woodstock farm sanctuary. located in upstate new york, woodstock farm is dedicated to rescuing farm animals who desperately need love and a comfortable life. each item we sell we will donate $1 to the farm. it may not seem like much, but a little can go a long way – in 2018 so far we've donated $571 and we don't plan on stoppin' there. each time you purchase you're not only supporting our growth and success, but you're also supporting the souls that reside at the sanctuary. you're helping give them food and medical attention. thank you.
Meet the Animals we Help!
INFO FROM WOODSTOCKSANCTUARY.ORG
Bill the Rabbit
Bill was found alone in the woods in a rural neighborhood, likely having been abandoned by someone close by. It was clear Bill was a domestic rabbit and would be lost to predators if left all alone. When he arrived to Sanctuary, Bill had a bad case of ear mites and was very underweight, but with quick medical treatment and proper care Bill settled into his new home happily. Learn more >>
Momma & Piglets
On Saturday October 10th, 2015, over 120 animals were rescued from a backyard butcher in Montgomery, NY. These poor animals were in horrendous condition – crammed in barns, little food, and living in their own feces. In addition to the 5 sheep and 9 goats, we rescued a mother pig with 5 baby piglets to their new safe haven at Woodstock Farm Sanctuary. Instead of ending up on someone’s plate, they will now live happily in peace for the rest of their lives. Learn more >>
Karuna the Rooster
A rooster fighting ring was getting busted & Woodstock Sanctuary acted fast to rescue Karuna. Otherwise known as cock-fighting, rooster fighting is an illegal, violent mutilation of chickens in which trained roosters are forced to fight to the death for wagers and entertainment. They rescued 26 scared and traumatized birds, all having suffered either outright abuse or neglect. These beautiful chickens spent their whole lives in fear and now that they found sanctuary, that fear is receding. Learn more >>
Caesar the Cow
Caesar spent the first six years of his life in a petting zoo in Montvale, NJ. This petting zoo was created to be a public attraction to a well-known country farm market and grocery that closed its doors in November 2015. Caesar is one of our largest steer and is a very gentle giant. He is a prime example of how animals just want to be loved. Caesar recently moved over to the big cow pasture to become friends with his own kind. He quickly befriended all of the cows at the sanctuary, especially Dylan who he often enjoys playing with!

Jackie & Moby the Goats
On a bleak Saturday in the Fall of 2015, multiple sanctuaries rescued over 120 animals from a backyard butcher in Montgomery, NY. These poor animals were kept in horrendous conditions — crammed in barns with little food and living space. Woodstock Farm Sanctuary took in 5 sheep, 6 pigs and 9 goats, who were by far the sickest of all those we rescued. Most of the goats had pneumonia, lice, and worms and some were pregnant. Read more >>
