    FRELINGHUYSEN, N.J. — Five pet cows that were facing slaughter earlier this year recently found a home in Vermont.

    The owners, an elderly couple living in Frelinghuysen, N.J., who could not afford to take care of the animals, originally planned to have the cattle slaughtered in January, but granted The Barnyard Sanctuary time to find them a home.

    More than two months later, the VINE Sanctuary, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide a “haven for animals who have escaped or been rescued from the meat, dairy and egg industries or other hurtful circumstances” based in Springfield, Vt., is now the home of the cows.
