Geographic areas served: North Florida and the world!

Programs: The sanctuary is home to over 200 rescued animals and we have at least two events every year like the Thanksgiving, Celebration FOR the Turkeys which draw many visitors. We have many volunteer and open house opportunities for visitors and we always welcome them by appointment as well. Meeting the animals is a fun, educational and, we hope, life-changing experience for hundreds of people every year.
We have a leafleting program and pass out thousands of leaflets every year at college campuses and events. We have billboards that ask the question: "Which do you love and which do you eat? WHY? " to encourage passersby to think about the fact that when they eat meat, they are causing the suffering and death of a real animal. Life Reclaimed Ministries offers classes to the community to reverse and prevent Diabetes, Heart Disease, lose weight and feel great!
Our goal is to reduce animal suffering by promoting a healthful whole-food, plant-based diet.

Mission:
Rooterville's mission is to encourage compassion for ALL animals. Factory farming is the greatest source of the most egregious animal cruelty on the planet, killing over 10 billion animals every year just in the USA. The best thing we can do to help animals, our own health and the environment is to adopt a plant-based diet!
Results:
Rooterville has had two great events which each hosted approx. 80 people, we have hundreds of visitors and volunteers every year and we have passed out over 6,000 flyers and expect to hand out thousands more to people at pet expos and students at the Univ. of FL and Santa Fe college campus' encouraging them to adopt a compassionate, plant-based diet. We are excited that our new billboards will be going up soon on I-75 and I-95 with cute pictures of baby farm animals and puppies and kittens, asking viewers the question: "Why love one but eat the other?"
We rescue dozens of animals every year who have no other hope and many who have endured terrible abuse and suffering. Visit our website to see some of the stories of these "lucky" ones who serve as ambassadors for all animals being raised for food, eggs and dairy products. Every year we show the film: "Farm to Fridge" to hundreds of people and the documentary in which Rooterville was featured, "Eating Mercifully" has been shown to millions!

I have followed Rooterville for many years and have read many media articles about them. They have so much compassion for all of their animals and are great advocates for all animals. An inspiration I hope to emulate at our own sanctuary... more »
