"Farm Sanctuary is the nation's leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the "food animal" industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary shelters in Watkins Glen, N.Y., and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming. Additional information can be found at farmsanctuary.org or by calling 607-583-2225."

Farm Sanctuary operates two shelters, one in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York, which is 175 acres, and one near Black Butte Lake in northern California, which is 300 acres. These shelters “rescue, rehabilitate and provide lifelong care for hundreds of animals who have been rescued from stockyards, factory farms, and slaughterhouses.” At these sanctuaries, once deprived animals are nourished back to health and given plenty of food, rest, and wide open spaces in which to roam!

When you walk through the pastures, you'll see frolicking calves, who once only knew pain and suffering in veal crates. As you enter the barns, you'll see pigs slumbering in soft straw — a tremendous change from a cold, filthy stockyard pen. Everywhere you look, you'll see animals who have suffered untold agony and cruelty. Only now, you'll witness these animals experiencing the joys of freedom for the first time in their lives.”
