Rescue & Adoptions
Farm Animal Stories
Farm Sanctuary operates a 175-acre shelter in Upstate New York, and a 300-acre shelter in Northern California.
Our coast-to-coast shelters provide rescue, rehabilitation and lifelong care for victims of "food animal" production, including: cattle, pigs, chickens, turkeys, goats, sheep, ducks, geese, and rabbits. All of the animals housed at Farm Sanctuary were victims of cruelty and neglect. Some of our animals are rescued during our investigations of farms, stockyards, auctions, and slaughterhouses; others arrive from humane societies and SPCA cruelty cases.
For the first time in their lives, animals who have only known fear, isolation and pain are enjoying spacious, clean, straw-filled barns, nourishing food, veterinary care and love.
