It takes a community to grow a sanctuary. A community of volunteers and donors like you. Green Acres Farm Sanctuary and the animals it cares for appreciate your generosity. Here is some ways you can join our community.
Green Acres Farm Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization which does not receive state or federal funding. Every donation, no matter the amount, makes the work at Green Acres Farm Sanctuary possible.
$20 will provide a month of feed and care for a goat
$30 will provide a month of grain for our chickens
$40 will provide a hoof trim for a horse or donkey
$50 will provide a month of bedding for the ducks, chickens and goats
$100 will provide a month of hay, grain and special care for a senior horse
The chores at Green Acres Farm Sanctuary are many and we can use your help. Your time is one of the most valuable things you can give.
At work parties volunteers clean the barns and pastures, scrub feeders and water containers, groom and socialize animals and do general farm maintenance. Watch for work party dates on our home page and on facebook. For the safety of all animals, please leave your pets at home.
Do you have a special skill? Are you a contractor, electrician or plumber? Do you have experience in animal husbandry or pasture rehabilitation? In-kind donations are a great way to give and may even be tax deductible. Contact Green Acres Farm Sanctuary and let us know about your special skill. Chances are you’re just what we need.

FUND A PROJECT
Project S.O.S ( Shelter Our Sheep)
Our sheep herd is growing and there are more sheep waiting for a safe place. In order to make room we want to build a 16×24 sheep barn and fence in over an acre of new pasture. It is ideal for the sheep herd to have their own area to better met their specific dietary needs.
S.O.S needs your help to fund this project and complete it before the end of summer. To date we have raised $1,100 towards our $4500 goal. To help click on the donate button on our website or facebook.
THIS PROJECT COMPLETED THANKS TO A GRANT FROM THE BINKY FOUNDATION
Project Cash For Coops
Backyard chicken coops and residential ordinances prohibiting roosters and limiting flock sizes have created the need for a safe place for unwanted chickens. When the cute fluffy chick turns out to be a rooster it has to be removed before neighbors complain. As hens get older their egg production decreases and these older hens must go to make room for younger hens.
We are currently working on turning an old garage into two coops with large fenced yards. By creating two separate coops and yards we promote the safety and well- being of the chickens and prevent teritorial disputes amongst roosters. We also will be able to rotate yards to allow the grass to grow.
