Mission Statement Our mission is to rescue farmed animals who have been neglected, abused, starved, or abandoned by providing them with food, shelter and medical care so that they can live the remainder of their lives free from pain and suffering. We also raise public awareness of the plight of mistreated animals through outreach programs, school visits, and animal sponsorship opportunities. In this way, we demonstrate that providing a permanent, nurturing environment for all agricultural animals is our role as a responsible society that values the sanctity of animal life. We envision that the animals we rescue will become ambassadors for other farm animals who are victimized by their owners; that our outreach programs in schools, churches and other entities will call attention to the heartless treatment that far too many agricultural animals experience; and that a steady stream of donations and animal sponsorships will ensure that our sanctuary will continue to grow in size, while gaining regional recognition and respect. Description TRANSPORT ABUSED ANIMALS TO OUR FARM

When we are contacted about an animal need, whether it be a case of abuse or neglect, natural disaster or an abandoned animal, we work to get the animal transported to FFAS as quickly as possible. If we cannot provide immediate transport, we will network with other sanctuaries to get the animal to safety immediately.

BRING THEM BACK TO HEALTH

Once the rescue arrives at the Sanctuary, we will do an exam to determine if they need emergency veterinary care. If so, we will contact the veterinarian to come out. They will also be placed in quarantine for thirty days. This assures that if they have a contagious condition or parasites, our current residents will not be exposed. During this time, we will also treat any injuries or illnesses they may have.

WE LOVE AND TAKE CARE OF THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES

Once an animal becomes a resident at FFAS, They will live out the remainder of their life here, free from pain and suffering. They will learn to trust humans; they will feel the gentle touch of a human hand, something many of our residents had never felt until they arrived here. They will feel love.

RAISE PUBLIC AWARENESS

It is very important to us that we make an effort to provide compassionate relationships between humans and these sentient beings that are often viewed as "things" or "food". We do this by educational programs, farm tours and special events.
