THis place was just shut down for over 280 counts of animal cruelty . http://www.dailyridge.com/en/2016/08/09/darlynns-darlins-animal-sanctuary-owners-arrested-for-animal-cruelty/
Not many people take in pigs, especially older ones. While they are not taking in any more it is so gratifying to see these animals individual personalities. I regret that I couldn't help more. Darlynn is a fantastic educator and has a heart of gold.
I am very impressed by the selfless devotion of Darlynn and Clinton for the care of the nearly 200 pigs and other farm animals they care for. They know each animal by name and can tell you about their personalities and health history. Their work is not easy nor glamorous but they feed and care for the. animals day and night. It is hard work and dirty but they are full of love for these creatures who would wind up as bacon and chops otherwise. The couple live very frugally and close to the earth in rural Polk county. They are highly deserving of support.
I was asked to join the Board of Directors and I take those positions very seriously. Darlynn's organization works hard to help animals that have next to no chance with most rescue organizations and no place to go I was absolutely happy to join the team. Darlynn works tirelessly to make the life of those animals have quality that they will find very few other places. Two thumbs up for the rescue ranch and the work that Darlynn does with her Darlins!
When I went to visit Darlynn's Darlins Sanctuary I was amazed at all of the animals that she has rescued and saved. I find it to be incredible what hard work and effort Darlynn takes to make sure the animals get the proper care, shelter, and food. Darlynn goes out of her way and beyond to try to help save animals from being slaughter and killed and gives them a life that they wouldn't have never had.
Darlynn's Darlins is a wonderful sanctuary for not only pigs but other animals as well. The care and efforts that go into the well-being of the animals is amazing. Darlynn & Butch are wonderful people that truly care about the animals. Every time I see the pigs, they are very happy. They are able to live out their lives in a safe environment. It is extremely hard to find a wonderful organization that offers that level of care for animals. Thank you for all of your hard work and continuous support given for all of the animals!
I have a pet pig which I could not keep any more because I had to move my horses to a place were
they did not allow pigs. he is such a loving animal he sits for his food like a dog, he lays down for belly
rub. if it was not for Darlynn helping me out with such a loving animal he would be destroyed. Darlynn
and Butch do such wonderful work for pigs and also different kinds of animals. it sure is a very hard
job to keep all animals happy & healthy, I just can not thank Darlynn & Butch for so much kindness &
caring for the animals. There is a lot of hard work that they put into the rescue & care for the animals. Thank you Darlynn & Butch so much for caring so much for Gods creatures.
There are a lot of animals that Darlynn and Butch took under their wings, and everyone of them is taken care of and loved. My weekly visit with the pigs, to help out with the water are the highlight of my weeks. It's a joy to work with the humans and the Animals at this sanctuary.
Darlynn's Darlins is truly a magical place. I was forced re-home my little pig when he started growing not-so-little. Darlynn took him in and gave him the life he deserved. I come by regularly to help out, volunteer, and see my boy. It's beyond impressive what she has managed to do. I've pet nearly every one of the 150 pigs on the property and you can look into each of their eyes to see pure happiness. Her pigs are blessed and her sanctuary is amazing.
Darlynn's Darlins definitely exceeded my expectations from the moment that I first contacted them last October. I was thrilled to find a place near me where I could lend a hand, and I have been even more thrilled to make a whole lot of friends, human and hooved. Darlynn is real, steadfast and amazing. She puts it all on the line for the care of the animals even if it means putting off herself. Butch is out there every day feeding and watering the animals, fixing up pens, giving all he's got.
It is evident in the way the animals greet you expecting a rub down and a scratch, in the way they lounge peacefully in the shade, or frolic playfully together, that they are given the best and most loving care possible. And the truly amazing thing is that for the most part Darlynn and Butch do this on their own, no matter what it takes. These are animals that wouldn't stand a chance almost anywhere else, and they offer to them the high life! I hope to be working with them for many years to come!
