  Cracker Box Palace Farm Animal Haven, founded in 2000, operates under the principles of “Rescue, Rehabilitation, Adoption, Sanctuary.” The goal of the staff and volunteers is to provide the best possible living conditions, diet, medical care, and physical and emotional rehabilitation for farm animals that have been abused or neglected, or those who just need a new home due to changes in their owner''s life circumstances.  Suitable adoptive homes are sought; candidates are interviewed and every effort is made to make sure these animals never end up in a rescue situation again. Community education is a large part of CBP’s mission; our hope is that by educating our youth regarding proper and responsible animal care someday shelters like this won’t be necessary anymore.


Farm Camp provides children with a week-long day camp experience that encompasses all aspects of animal care, working on a farm, and learning the value and importance of teamwork and cooperation to accomplish a task.  Children choose an animal that they will "adopt" for the week and have the opportunity to learn about that animal, care for it, and have fun with it too.

Crackerbox Palace is an awesome place!The people that run this sanctuary are down to earth and dedicated to what they do. They are hard working,compassionate, and honest people.The number one concern at this sanctuary are the care and well being of the animals in their care. If ever a non profit organization needed care and donations from the public it is this place.The animals come first!!!!!!!

I have been helping care for animals at Cracker Box Palace every weekend for a year now, and am still amazed at the dedication and single mindedness fo the farm manager, staff, board, and volunteers. CBP purchased the 607 acre farm they are located on this year and money is really tight. When the farm could no longer afford to pay its staff, many continued to volunteer their time. The welfare of the animals is always the #1 priority. Donations to the Farm are always put to good use. I encourage potentila donors and volunteers to support this great organiation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the progress that absued and neglected animals make after they have been cared for at CPB. The healing powerof their program is impressive.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage a talaented publicist to get the word out about Cracker Box Palce and the good work they do, day in and day out
