Mission Statement

Our mission at Farmhouse Animal & Nature Sanctuary, a 501(c)(3) non profit, is to care for, love and support the exotic and farm animals that live at the sanctuary, to the best of our ability, for the remainder of their lives and to educate the public on animal care and nature.

Description

Farmhouse sanctuary offers continued care of the animals that currently reside at the property. These animals will live out the remainder of their lives here with us. Our main goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of the animals in our care as well as to show them love. We will be working towards programs geared to help at risk students and under privileged youth and young adults. The focus will be to teach them a way of life caring for animals and nature with the intent of peaking their interest in pursuing a career in animal care/vet services and/or horticultural and landscape services. This program will benefit both the person and the animals with one on one attention and care. In addition we will offer educational tours and classes to help raise public awareness and understanding of what it takes to care for the specific animals at the sanctuary.
