Refarm Sanctuary

is a place where neglected, abandoned, and abused farm animals find refuge.

All creatures

great and small, that find their way to Refarm are cared for until healthy and a loving forever home is found or to live out the remainder of their lives.

Our mission

is to provide care for animals in need and to inform and educate our community on common agriculture practices, and advocate for the humane treatment of all kinds.

Our vision

is a world without exploitation of animals for human benefit or consumption. Refarm Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Please consider donating. EIN: 82-2263882

Meet the Residents

Ollie the Steer

Ollie would have been veal were it not for an infection in his joints that made him ineligible for human consumption. For 18 months he was left to fend for himself. Too strong to die. Too weak to get better. He's in better place now. Come hang with him. He loves to cuddle.


Ruby the Llama

Ruby is our guard llama. Anytime there is the slightest sign of danger, Ruby makes her warning calls. Within seconds, ever other animal gathers around her and stares in the exact same direction she does. She's getting older and will remain at Refarm to live out the rest of her life.


Kai the Bison

Kai is one of 7 bison that call Refarm home. This is him shortly after he arrived. Emancipated after years of neglect. He and the rest of the herd are doing much better now. He is the biggest of the bunch and quite intimidating. Not huggable but definitely admireable. 


Farm Better, Reform, Refarm

Farming, food production and nourishment doesn't need to be at the expense of animals. Do better. Eat better. Feel better.

We operate Refarm Sanctuary for the love of animals. We will do so regardless of what contributions or help we get. Yet, your support allows us to expand care to more animals in need. All donations are matched by an anonymous donor.
