Rescue & Adoption Program
Each individual saved has a story, one of many. She may be the 1-yr-old hen slated for slaughter. He may be the discarded male dairy calf. She might be a confiscated pig saved from death.
Whatever their story, it all begins anew at our Rescue & Adoption Center in Petaluma.
In August of 2010, the Rescue & Adoption program was launched with the rescue of 250 hens from an egg farm. Then 140 chickens from a hoarder. To date, chickens, turkeys, goats, sheep and pigs have passed through its barn doors and onto greener pastures, new homes.
Our Rescue & Adoption Program is the only of its kind in the country. There simply is no other program that actively works with farmers, animal control agencies, and other sanctuaries and shelters to take in farmed animals and place them into new homes. A permanent refuge can only save a small number of animals, while an adoption program can save thousands.
The Rescue & Adoption Center can only take in those animals we can place. You can be a part of this innovative work by letting us know you can adopt. Email us for more information. Or apply to adopt!
