Mission Statement

Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that rescues, rehabilitates, and provides an adoption program for abused, abandoned, and neglected farm animals suchas horses, ponies, potbelly pigs, farm pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, sheep, goats, and cows.

Happy Trails serves the entire state of Ohio and any other state requesting our help, and works in cooperation with county humane societies, animal protective leagues, and local and state law enforcement officers.

Animals in our program must have been removed from a situation of abuse, neglect or abandonment by law officials, and cruelty charges must be filed against the person(s) responsible for the crime.


Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary has many programs in addition to the farm animal rescue services that we provide to humane agencies and law enforcement. We also have educational and outreach programs, including the Farm Animal Visitation Program where rescued farm animals are taken into nursing homes for visits with the elderly. Happy Trails Amish Horse Retirement Program accepts Standardbreds (buggyhorses) and draft (plow) horses who would normally have been sent to a local auction where they would normally be sent to slaughter. We provide rehab services for these Amish horses and then place them in permanent adoptive homes. We are unveling a new list of educational programs for 2014 which will be held at the sanctuary itself. There are many volunteer opportunies in a wide variety of categories.
