Rocking H Sanctuary
Chad transformed his farm into a Sanctuary
Chad Hubbell grew up in the middle of farm country and his family raised cows, horses, pigs and goats. He spent 18 years in the Army with 3 combat deployments and was medically retired due to traumatic brain injuries from assault with combat explosives. And after coming home to the US, he and his wife barely survived a near fatal wreck, both sustaining permanent disabilities. After rescuing and rehabilitating a calf that was severely disabled, he began to see all animals as worthy of love.
“I am not turning my back on my community, I am trying to help my community. But I am not afraid to be a voice for the voiceless because I am not ok with what’s going on. I have done three combat deployments on the front lines and if I can change, anyone can change.”
He went vegan and now considers his miraculous survival to be an opportunity to help build a better world where all life is valued with love and compassion. Nor does he allow the challenges he has experienced to slow him down, he is building the Rocking H Sanctuary, rescuing animals and has plans for it to be a non-profit center where other veterans can come and through spending time with the rescued animals, experience healing from trauma.
