About Farm Sanctuary
Farm Sanctuary is an American animal protection organization, founded in 1986 as an advocate for farmed animals. It was America's first shelter for farmed animals. It promotes laws and policies that support animal welfare, animal protection, and veganism through rescue, education, and advocacy.
Farm Sanctuary’s New York shelter is home to more than 700 rescued cows, pigs, turkeys, and other farm animals - each with their own special story. These stories of struggle and survival, against all odds, give the public insight into the realities farm animals face in the modern food system, and also introduce us to inspiring individuals through their heartwarming tales. Animals who began their lives abused and neglected now spend their days digging in the dirt, basking in the sun, and napping in the straw. Each animal is given the freedom and attention needed not only to recover but to thrive.
