Farm Sanctuary

Overview

Farm Sanctuary is the nation's leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the "food animal" industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary operates shelters in Watkins Glen, NY and Orland, CA, which provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals.

Mission

To combat the abuses of industrialized farming and to encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals.

Program

Rescue - Throughout the last 20 years, Farm Sanctuary has played a significant role in hundreds of rescues, providing rehabilitation and permanent sanctuary to abused farm animals from cruelty cases across the U.S. Over 7,000 animals have called Farm Sanctuary home, and we have found safe and loving placement for thousands of others.
Education - By opening our barn doors to guests at our New York and California shelters, Farm Sanctuary provides visitors with the unique experience of seeing the world through the eyes of farm animals. A shelter tour enables individuals to understand the abysmal realities of today's factory farming conditions. After coming face to face with a rescued chicken, nuzzling up to a gentle cow and rubbing a grateful pig's belly, many Farm Sanctuary visitors are forever changed.
Advocacy - Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has campaigned relentlessly to prevent cruelty, and to encourage legal and policy reforms that promote respect and compassion for farm animals. We have initiated groundbreaking prosecutions and precedent-setting litigation, and we have passed the first U.S. laws to prohibit inhumane factory farming practices. Our field investigations have turned up shocking cruelties, which have riled citizens and led to reforms.

Impact

Over the past two decades, we have seen the first laws passed in the U.S. to ban cruel factory farming practices, established the country’s first shelter for farm animals, and opened the hearts and minds of Americans to their plight. We have established a voice for farm animals and a name for Farm Sanctuary among the public, the media, the factory farm and food service industries, and policy and lawmakers. We have worked hard to build our support base – growing to an organization of 150,000 supporters – and we are expanding our reach and impact.
