OUR NEWEST ARRIVAL

A victim of the dairy industry at only 3 days old Hershey was put up for auction to eventually become veal. As an offspring of a dairy cow, Hershey was taken from his mother so his milk could be sold to humans. Like all mammals, in order to produce milk cows must give birth. His rescuer was shocked by the cruelty of the auction process. Thankfully she paid the $7.50 fee to save Hershey and than brought him to Green Acres Farm Sanctuary. We can use your help to buy his special formula and care for his care.

A YEAR IN REVIEW

A YEAR IN REVIEW

In 2013 Green Acres Farm Sanctuary took in 51 farm animals. These new residents included a 35 year old horse that would have been put down, 4 ducklings bought and mailed as a joke, and 25 hens rescued from an egg producing factory farm. We  fostered 77 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens giving at risk animals a safe place until they are able to be placed for adoption. In 2013 volunteers spent 4024 hours to help keep Green Acres Farm Sanctuary operating. With no paid employees the sanctuary truly runs on volunteer power.
