you ever given a pig a belly rub
talked to a turkey
a cow? The animals at Farm Sanctuary love visitors as much as you
will love our unique shelters.
Currently, Farm Sanctuary operates three shelters — a 175-acre farm in upstate New York, a 300-acre farm in northern California and Farm Sanctuary’s Animal Acres, a 26-acre shelter in southern California. Our shelters rescue, rehabilitate and provide lifelong care for hundreds of animals who have been rescued from stockyards, factory farms, and slaughterhouses. Here, the animals are given all the care and love needed to recover from a lifetime of abuse and neglect. All of the animals have nourishing food, spacious, clean barns, and acres of green, sunny pastures in which to roam.
you walk through the pastures, you'll see frolicking calves, who
once only knew pain and suffering in veal crates. As you enter the
barns, you'll see pigs slumbering in soft straw a tremendous
change from a cold, filthy stockyard pen. Everywhere you look, you'll
see animals who have suffered untold agony and cruelty. Only now,
you'll witness these animals experiencing the joys of freedom for
the first time in their lives.
Farm Sanctuary, people see farm animals as living, feeling beings
who are just as capable of suffering from isolation, fear and neglect
as a dog or cat. Our "animal ambassadors"
have a very special way of reaching and teaching people. So, if
you know someone that loves animals, bring them to a Farm Sanctuary
a very special place for farm animals and for the friends
of farm animals.
