Community receiving the animals
During the second half of January, the Community-of-Light of the Nova Terra, located in the region of Teresopolis, state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, received almost one hundred animal victims of landslide. The Animals were from a Farm-Sanctuary that shelters animals.
The first group of animals that arrived came, on January 18: including 31 ducks, 2 geese, 1 turkey and 25 hens. On the 25th, the second group arrived: 24 oxen, 9 pigs and 7 goats. The request for these animals to be received was on the initiative of Patrícia Fittipaldi, the founder and coordinator of the Santuário das Fadas (Sanctuary of the Fairies), a farm located in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro, which shelters animals who suffer some kind of exploitation or cruelty.
