Sponsoring a Farm Animal

There are many wonderful farm animals at the sanctuary who are in need of “sponsor” parents. Your sponsorship of a sanctuary resident helps to provide them with daily feed, shelter and veterinary care. You will receive a framed photograph and the story of your adopted friend, along with the opportunity to visit in person. With your support we can continue to rescue even more animals who desperately need a home.
