About Animal Place...

"Founded in 1989 Animal Place is one of the oldest and largest sanctuaries for farmed animals in the country. Nestled on 600-acres in Grass Valley, CA, Animal Place provides refuge to hundreds of neglected farmed animals. In addition to permanent sanctuary, Animal Place's Rescue Ranch is a 60-acre adoption center, placing needy farmed animals into permanent homes.

Sanctuary is important work, but Animal Place strives to create meaningful change for farmed animals through advocacy and education. Thousands of visitors flock to the sanctuary each year to learn more about the animals and farming. Volunteer classes introduce folks to the more intense ways people can help. Internships are also available. Every year, we host a popular event, ThanksLiving, for the turkeys as well as several Chicken Care Classes that teach people the basics of chicken care. 

We promote veganism through our publications, e-alerts, and cooking classes. Our mission is simple - to extend compassion to all life!"

Mission Statement

"Founded in 1989, Animal Place's California animal shelters fills a much-needed niche of farm animal rescue, sanctuary, education and adoption. Animal Place is one of the largest and oldest animal sanctuaries in the nation. We operate a 600-acre sanctuary in Grass Valley, California, and a 60-acre animal shelter in Vacaville, California. Animal Place extends compassion to all life with a special emphasis on farmed animals. This is executed by providing permanent sanctuary, education, legislation and appropriate placement of needy animals."

Animal Place Sanctuary, Grass Valley, California

"Animal Place's permanent shelter is a northern California tourist destination spot - nestled between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe, our 600-acre Grass Valley farm animal shelter is a testament to the beauty of the Sierra Foothills. Visitors are invited to tour the sanctuary on self-guided and guided farm tours. The 300 animals at our refuge are permanent residents. See photographs of rescued animals! 

Animals arrive from small and large farms, slaughterhouses, research facilities, and neglect or cruelty cases. All animals find a haven where all their needs are met and their individual quirks respected.

In addition to providing sanctuary farmed animals, Animal Place serves as an education and advocacy center. We offer tours, cooking classes and workshops at the sanctuary as well as volunteer and internship opportunities. Because factory farming takes the lives of 10 billion land animals each year in the United States, we promote a vegan, cruelty-free lifestyle. If you are ever in the area, we hope you can sign up for one of our tours and meet the wonderful residents at Animal Place! Animal Place is open Tuesdays-Saturdays from 10-4 pm at our Grass Valley sanctuary."

Animal Place's Rescue Ranch, Vacaville, California

"Rescue Ranch is the only program of its kind in the nation. Rescue Ranch is a unique California animal shelter specializing in rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming needy farm animals. We focus on chicken rescue, working with egg farmers and shelters to offer an alternative to death. Other species, from goats to cows, are also saved and found permanent homes. Rescue Ranch is closed to the public to allow animals the security and privacy they need to recuperate from their previous life."
