Get to know more about Nicholas

In loving memory of Nicholas, the most perfect cow who touched our hearts with his gentle nature and unwavering spirit. Born on a dairy farm, his journey led him to an auction where he was purchased for a mere $15. Chained up outside an apartment complex in Berkeley, CA, he endured neglect, surviving on hay alone (as a calf). Eventually, animal control intervened and rescued him. Nicholas was a sweet and patient soul, bringing joy to both adults and children. Though he had his mischievous moments in his prime, he matured into a cooperative and handsome companion. May Nicholas’ memory inspire us to advocate for the welfare of all animals and cherish the precious connections we share with them.
