Chatham-Kent Animal Sanctuary Hosting First Birthday Party Event For Special Needs Dog

Charlotte’s Freedom Farm is celebrating Winnie turning one on May 14th with a superhero-themed birthday party event that will be fun for the whole family.

Winnie arrived at Charlotte’s Freedom farm when he was about six weeks old. Winnie was born with some deformities. This is due to some parts of his body not developing correctly when he was in the womb. Winnie’s front legs are deformed, and he is missing most of his sternum.

He had a custom wheelchair and a nub cover for one of his front arms so that he could run around and play with all of his friends on the farm.

Winnie has gained worldwide attention online. He has over 20,000 followers on Instagram (@winnie_the_roo_) and over 1 million views on a video he was featured in on The Dodo’s YouTube channel.

The day will feature a bouncy castle, superhero sumo suit wrestling, an inflatable soccer game, snacks, and more. This is a chance for families to come out and visit the farm and all of the animals and have a great time supporting the sanctuary.

Tickets are $10 each and are available on the farms Eventbrite page here.
