Support the Sanctuary

In the six years since Green Acres Farm Sanctuary began we have rescued and fostered over 700 animals. We are an all volunteer 501(3)(c) non-profit that operates on donations and receives no state or federal funding. Every dollar given goes directly to the animals providing them medical care, food and shelter. Join the Green Acres Farm Sanctuary team by donating today and together we can help more animals.

Make a one-time donation, or become a Sustaining Supporter with your recurring monthly donation:


Thank you for supporting Green Acres Farm Sanctuary!
