Believe in Destiny


There are certain things in life that are not in our control. Just believe in destiny while focussing on what you can control. Destiny will take you to your happy place.


a male calf destined to live

Almost no male calves get to live. But unlike other male calves in the dairy industry who are viewed as a waste product and killed, or are slaughtered for meat shortly after birth, I was meant to go somewhere else.


We are only seen as veal that doesn't feel.


I didn’t know what my fate would be, but I closed my eyes to let destiny take me home.


Magically it happened, when they took me to RASTA.


I have never felt warmth and comfort like being with Ella, my adopted mother here. She patiently awaited my destiny.


The RASTA Sanctuary is one of only two farm sanctuaries on all of Vancouver Island and the need for our help is constant and great! If you see value in the work that we do, please consider making a donation to help support our efforts. 


The RASTA Calendar 2020 is crafted with love by a total of 7 volunteers from 3 different organisations, RASTA, Mystic Lights, and Vyugam Business Consulting & Climate Emergency Solutions, who are experts in their area of work. We would like to take a moment to thank each one of them as well as the residents of RASTA for sharing their love and wisdom with all of us.
