A compassionate woman found Pepper afraid and alone on the Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, NY and knew she must have escaped a live meat market. Her white feathers suggest she was a chicken born to be killed and used as meat. She scooped up this scared little hen and brought her back to her city apartment. With no proper living quarters for a chicken, the woman reached out to Safe Haven and we opened our arms and our hearts to this sweet little chicken. Had she been left in the busy city streets of Brooklyn, she would have likely been killed in traffic or picked up by someone for their dinner.
Hudson was found on the Henry Hudson Parkway in the Bronx in January 2018. The man who rescued her said a hawk was flying away with the hen and dropped her. Her feathers were in poor condition and her beak has been severely cut - indications that she most likely spent her early life in a cramped cage on a factory farm. Here at Safe Haven, Hudson is “home” where she will live the free and happy life she deserves.
Diego was found by a caretaker at Safe Haven. He is now happily at home and even has a girlfriend, Maryanne (shown here with Diego).
Edna was rescued from a small cage, left out in the cold with no food or water. A kind man contacted us and now she is part of the Safe Haven family.
Leia was rescued from a parking lot in Danbury, CT. Her beak is severely cut, suggesting she started life on a factory farm. She has made fast friends with the other back barn chickens.
Ruby laid eggs for a backyard farmer. When her body could no longer produce enough eggs, he was going to have her for dinner. Instead, she joined the Safe Haven family.
Sunny was found outside a poultry market in Queens. In factory farms, Sunny would be a "broiler chicken" destined to be killed at 6 weeks. We call her one of the peeps.
In April 2018, we received an urgent email informing us that ten young hens who had been used in experiments in a lab in Georgia were going to be euthanized if a home couldn’t be found by the next morning. The lab had already euthanized some of the chickens who couldn’t be placed in time. Time was running out and all the local sanctuaries were full. Could Safe Haven take these babies and could they come the next day? We hurried to make them a warm cozy space!
Boomer was born here at Safe Haven. He looks very much like his mom, Matilda. He has long ears and a white streak on his face. His mom was pregnant when she was rescued from a live market in the Bronx where she and Boomer would have been destined for slaughter. At our sanctuary, Boomer enjoys his days exploring the pasture with his mother living the free and happy life he deserves.
Duncan is a pygmy goat who was transferred to Safe Haven along with Isadora after their daring escape from a live market in the Bronx. They were found at the intersection of the Hutchinson River Parkway and I-95 South. Duncan is very outgoing and spunky. He happily spends his days exploring the pastures with his friend Isadora. These two goats have a special bond and are always within close proximity of each other.
Astro was going to be euthanized when his family moved out of state. Safe Haven provided him and two friends a forever home. He is a big shy, but loves to play with the bigger goats.
Cesar is a baby goat found wandering in the Bronx by two compassionate NYC police officers. Covered with candle wax, he might have escaped from a very bad scene. Very sick and thin when he arrived, Cesar is already gaining weight and starting to explore the farm. He is very friendly and will welcome you to Safe Haven.
Violet started her life in a filthy barn with two other Dwarf Nigerian goats. At Safe Haven, she divides her time between the pastures and the barn. She enjoys basking in the sun and getting treats from her human friends.
Cory lived the first 17 years of her life with one family in New Hampshire. As the years went by, and the children grew, the family acquired several large horses, and Cory was no longer getting attention. Horses are herd animals and very sociable. Cory’s loneliness led to compulsive rubbing and overeating. Her family heard about Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary and shared Cory's story with us. We were happy to welcome this precious little horse into our family. When rescue horse Chance joined our family, he and Cory quickly became close friends. They enjoy spending their days together in the pasture.
Chance used to have to pull heavy equipment and was never fed enough. When he came to us, he was extremely thin.
Today, you can find Chance playing in the pasture with his best friend, Cory (the mini-horse). He loves snacks and is always very gentle and friendly.
A loving woman adopted Gracie at eight weeks old and they were best friends for 2 years. Sadly, due to a health crisis in the family, the woman was in dire need of finding her precious Gracie a new home. She searched diligently for a home environment for Gracie but no one wanted the responsibility of caring for a pig. She notified Safe Haven of her urgent situation and we opened our arms and our hearts to Gracie. We were happy to bring some peace of mind to her adopted mother and give Gracie a new forever home and welcome her to our farm family.
Harry arrived early one morning to Safe Haven. He is getting loving care and making friends.
Leo is a miniature pot-bellied pig. A NYC family had to get rid of Leo because they couldn't take care of him in their NYC apartment. Now he likes to nuzzle his friends at Safe Haven; he love belly rubs.
Otis was abandoned in NYC and lived through some horrible times. Now, he is safe and happy at Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary.
Keme was rescued by two compassionate people who saw him hopping around the streets of Queens. He was most likely a house rabbit who was abandoned in the park. He surely would have been killed by predators or a moving vehicle if he had not been rescued. We welcomed Keme to our farm family and he made himself right at home. He has a room to play and stay safe during the winter months. In the warm months, he enjoys his own outdoor play area.
Al and his bunny friend Barney were abandoned in a park on the Queens-Long Island border – a certain death sentence for house rabbits. They were lucky to be rescued by a veterinary technician who was walking in the park. These two rabbits now share a room at Safe Haven. Al is a friendly bunny and loves getting treats and petting from his human friends. He spends his days playing with his toys and enjoying hay, fresh veggies, and organic rabbit pellets. In the warm months, he and Barney enjoy the outdoors in their own play area.
Barney is a sweet white house rabbit who was abandoned in a park on the Queens-Long Island border. He was found along with a beautiful black bunny friend named Al.

Barney and his friend Al now share a room at Safe Haven where they have plenty of toys and treats to enjoy during the winter. In the warm months, they have fun in their own outdoor play area.
Jillian came to Safe Haven with two other sheep, Samantha and Jeremy (mother and son). They all survived the worst treatment and starvation their rescuers had ever seen.
