The mission of Fawn Hills Animal Sanctuary and Care Farm is to cultivate mutually beneficial relationships among humans, animals and the natural environment.
We provide long-term care for abused, abandoned, and neglected farm animals. Many of the animals at the farm are adoptable The purpose of care farming is to promote mental and physical health by giving people opportunities to spend time working with animals and on the land. At Fawn Hills, people, animals and the earth work together for mutual healing. Soon, we hope to provide supervised, structured programs teaching animal care, vegetable production, and other farming-related activities to foster youth, people with emotional and physical disabilities and anyone needing a dose of fresh air, dirty hands, or a hug from an animal.
