Adopting farm animals is not that much different than adding a house pet to your family. Each breed in and of itself have different needs in feeding, vaccinations and housing. Before adopting a farm animal – read and become knowledgeable about the breed you are interested in. You may find the thought of having a farm animal and the dedication it takes will be different. Remember animals have feelings too – adopting a rescue animal is adopting an animal with a past. Many have been neglected and or mistreated. Some are damaged because of their past and have issues – you need to ask yourself if you are willing to deal with those issues. If not, the chances are high that he/she will end up back in another rescue because you did not do the research beforehand. At BRRARI a potential adopter must be at least 21 years of age, have a photo ID and have the means to provide, in addition to the willingness and commitment to care for the new addition to their family for their whole lives.

Farm Animals: Alpacas
Alpacas are cousins of the Llama and Paco-Vicuna. They are smaller than the llama and are known for their fine fiber. They are fun to own, very serene and relaxing to watch. Alpacas prefer a three sided shelter to being cooped up in a barn. They are easy keepers, they eat very little food each day which would be equivalent to that of a large dog. There are two kinds of Alpacas common in the United States: (1) the SURI alpaca, which has fiber looking like dreadlocks and is very silky, and (2) the HUACAYA (wa-ki-a) which is a more colorful fiber, extremely fine and gives the alpaca a wooly, round appearance. All our Alpacas are owner surrendered. We have no background information on any of them. They are not for breeding and you will be required to sign such an agreement when adopting from us.
