Thanks to the generosity of people like you, over 130 farmed animals call Safe Haven home. We offer opportunities for people to meet the animals as individuals and learn their stories.
Compassion Lives Here
Join us in our mission to provide a better future for farmed animals.
Friends of Safe Haven, we need your help. Please take a moment to read the article published on the United Poultry Concern's web site addressing the cruel reality for ducklings and baby chicks every Easter holiday. Bill Crain, Co-founder of Safe Haven, is a contributor to this article providing insight into our sanctuary's own experiences with this dire situation. Our mission is to help spread the word and we hope you will join us in taking action so we can put an end to this distressing practice.

Sugar and Spice spent their entire young lives in a laboratory subject to experimentation. They've endured a very difficult start in life but got through it together and share an incredible bond. These precious piglets arrived at Safe Haven in January of 2021 at just 4 months old. They have found their lifelong home at our sanctuary where they will be treated with an abundance of love, care and respect. It is a pure joy to see them just get to be silly playful piglets and witness their newfound zest for life. Their names totally suit them – Sugar is as sweet as can be and Spice is bold and adventurous. They are already responding to the love of our devoted caretakers and seem to know that they are now safe from harm.
You can help support the care of Sugar and Spice by becoming a sponsor. Each donation goes directly to cover the costs for their food, shelter and care. By becoming a sponsor, you are helping us continue our mission to provide a better future for farmed animals. You will receive a certificate that includes a photo of your new friend and their rescue story. Best of all, once life gets "back to normal", you will have the opportunity to schedule a visit and spend some quality time getting to know them. You will get to see firsthand just how unique and wonderful these sentient beings are.
You can click here for one-time sponsorship or click here for monthly sponsorship and provide an ongoing source of support for Sugar or Spice. Thank you! You are our extended family and your generosity never ceases to amaze us. We are deeply grateful for all you do for animals.
Our inventory requirements for the cold weather months have increased considerably due to our growing family! Since last winter, we've welcomed many new rescues to our sanctuary. Thanks to your compassion and support, we were able to bring home 9 pigs, 4 sheep, 4 cows 2 goats, 2 donkeys, 5 ducks, 17 leghorns, 6 Kaporos babies, 8 hens and 3 turkeys!
If you are able to make a donation, no matter how big or small, just click here and know that your support helps us keep our residents warm and cozy and their bellies full throughout the challenging cold weather season.

$40.00 covers the cost of hay (6 bales) for one day
$70.00 covers the cost of straw (5 bales) for one day
