Sponsor a Farm Animal
FFAS’ shelter animals are in need of loving “parents” to sponsor their monthly feed, shelter, and veterinary care costs. Our Sanctuary animals are available for sponsorship through our Sponsor a Farm Animal Program. By participating in this program, you help provide the necessary support to care for a rescued farm animal and defend all farm animals against cruelty.
To sponsor a farm animal today, choose the type of animal and monthly donation that is right for you then click the associated link to be directed to our donor page. We ask sponsors make a year-long commitment to a shelter animal and make monthly, quarterly, or annual payments. In return, you will receive a sponsorship certificate with a color photograph of your sponsored friend, and other benefits depending on your animal. Private tours to visit sponsored animals can be scheduled during visitor season and otherwise as staffing permits. You may also wish to consider sponsoring a Farm Sanctuary animal for your friends and family as a special gift sponsorship.

Our latest rescues
Ruth was rescued in 2019 and brought to the farm with her sister Rita.
Harold was one of eight chickens we found abandoned on our door step in 2019. They were just chicks.
Izzy is a polish rooster. He was abandoned at a livestock auction. He is getting used to his surrounding here at FFAS, he is still a little shy. In time he’ll be crowing at all the pretty little hens.
Have you ever seen anything so adorable as these two?
They have such a heartwarming story. Read about this adorable chick and Willie the duck HERE
We were contacted by local authorities that found Alice wandering the streets of a very busy city in the middle of the night. The temperature was below zero. She was covered in road salt, grit and oily grime. Her face is severely deformed due to a horrible debeaking attempt. There are several live markets in the area so we suspect she was able to escape one.
Now Alice is happy and safe at FFAS. She has formed a strong bond with Stella, one of our rescued turkeys.
Betty was found in a busy neighborhood. She was seen being chased and kicked by kids. She was finally able to be saved by a a couple of caring people who contacted us.
Betty could not walk without falling over and barely weighed two pounds.
The veterinarian suggested euthanasia but Betty deserved a chance. We took her home to FFAS and we were able to get her to eat and she gradually started to gain weight and got stronger and was able to walk. It just took some TLC and patience.
Betty is thriving and loves hanging out with her new pal, Zelda.
