At the sanctuary for farm animals + permaculture we dedicate ourselves to the recovery of abused, abandoned and neglected farm animals while also recognizing that animal rescue and animal advocacy is part of a much larger, complex ecology. Understanding the consequential impact of our work on the environment is paramount. Rescuing one life form at the expense of another creates a paradox. However, learning how different life forms can sustain each other, creates a profound environment of balanced coexistence for flora, fauna and humans alike!
We advocate for veganism as the quintessential vehicle to stop animals abuse; here we promote a lifestyle free of animal products as a fundamentally healthier way of life.

At our farm, individuals will be learning about animal care, which includes medical treatments, animal behavior skills and how to maintain good health overall. You will also be learning how to use natural resources for constructions.
We are looking for individuals who are dedicated to animal welfare and environmental conservation. Daily tasks include assisting with animal care giving, building maintenance work and light agricultural/forestry work. Some animal caregiving and carpentry skills required.
On our property, we have a trailer that is available during the warmer months that is equipped with water and has its own kitchen and bathroom. During our colder season, we have a spare bedroom in the main house that has a shared bathroom, and a shared kitchen. Each space can accommodate one individual.
Food can be provided to cook as you please.
