Instagram isn’t always used for skateboarders to show the world how cool they are and to grow their following for their sponsors. Danny Renaud has been showcasing something else, The Little Farmhouse Animal Rescue. It is his passion project with his girlfriend where they take in all kinds of animals in the hopes of getting them a better life. Of course their is also a perfect marble ledge there as well and they make some money by using it as a movie set and also let skate teams crash there when rolling through Miami. Sounds like a dope set-up.

Sample:

JW: How many animals do you have at the farm currently?

DR: I don’t know exactly how many. We’ve got a pony, a goat, a pig, 15 chickens, two dogs, six or seven cats and a baby raccoon right now too. A lady reached out and brought it to us. I was out of town and came home to my girlfriend taking care of this tiny raccoon. It was young enough that we had to bottle feed it. But lately its been going outside and running around. It’s cool to see an animal grow and learn like that.

JW: What’s the daily routine like over there with that many animals to take care of?

DR: Well, I have seven dogs at home myself. I’ll get up early to feed them and let them out, then I’ll rush over to the farm. Gabby and I don’t actually live at the farm, we have a house in South Beach. I get to the farm early and feed the pig, the horse and the goat and then let them out of the barn so they can run around for a while. Then I’ll stroll around the farm and see if anything needs attention. It’s an acre of property with eight structures on it so there’s constantly maintenance to do. I don’t do it all myself. I’ve got a carpenter friend, James, who’s our go-to guy. He does pretty much anything and everything here. Once I’ve done all that, I’ll skate a little bit.
