(WTNH) -- A so called custom home for animals is a farm that helps animals who are very sick.
Out to Pasture isn't just a rescue farm, it's a hospice for animals no one else wants or can take care of.
Takeenah gets around pretty well with her custom made wheelchair.
"She's got Scoliosis, which means curvature of the spine."
It's now a dog's life for her and 80 other animals which live on the farm.
"We take the ones that nobody else wants and sometimes the emotional scars are worse than the physical ones. But we never give up on them, they stay here," said Carrie Haggart, Out to Pasture.
Haggart and her husband built the Out To Pasture farm for the animals.
"Some of the horses are blind," she said. "They have leg problems, Cushings Disease."
Once they come there, they are there for good.
When asked if it's a sanctuary for her as well Haggart said that it's "A little piece of heaven."
The home was also custom made for animals who need special care.
As soon as News 8 entered into the house we were greeted by Gangren. Super friendly and one of many friendly animals in there.
All are physically challenged like Gangren, elderly, abused, or terminally ill.
"Scars from a real bad bite, pulled out of a pit bull ring," said Haggart.
Constant care and comfort takes work and money.
"I'm really quick, I can diaper quite a few in a very few short time," she said.
Haggart is hoping the calendar will spread joy and also help support her efforts.
"It's a real joy to watch take their first step or wag their tail for a first time," she said.
All of the animals in the calendar are at the farm. If you want to buy one of the calendars or just want to support Out To Pasture visit outtopasture.org .
