Your donation or participation in our Adopt An Animal program helps us help the Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary animals. Thank you for all of your support. Your compassion towards our animals is much appreciated.
At the heart of Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary's mission is the notion that animals are sentient beings who deserve to be treated with compassion and respect. All creatures share the earth with us and are not here to be used by us.
Careful scientific research is validating what we intuitively understand: that animals feel, and their emotions are as important to them as ours are to us. Animals' emotions are ... raw and uncontrolled. Their joy is the purest and most contagious of joys, and their grief the deepest and most devastating. When animals express their feelings they pour out like water from a spout. Indeed, when we pay attention, animals display a mindful presence, unfiltered emotions, and a zest for life .... Their passions bring us to our knees in delight and sorrow. -- Marc Bekoff, from The Emotional Lives of Animals
