Mission Statement

We are a non profit 501 (c)(3) organization. We are a forever home for the special needs farm animal.

Description

We are a non profit 501 (c)(3) organization. We are a forever home for the special needs farm animal that would otherwise be discarded. The disabled and "throw aways" are welcomed with kindness and compassion to our farm to live out the rest of their days without ever knowing fear or hurt again. We truly believe that these are the precious souls that deserve a chance to know life and happiness in a safe and loving environment. They are the special ones that touch your heart, the ones that struggled to come into this world, the ones that struggled to survive, and they more than deserve to be loved and cared for no matter what the handicap may be, and at Bella View Farm Animal Sanctuary that’s exactly what they get to do here.
