Love love love this place. These guys do wonderful work. Rescuing and rehabilitation the "unwanted " animals left over from the animal feed lot industry. Such misery that is turned into triumph with a little patience and love. These animals are the lucky ones and are saved from a very cruel industry that needs to stop. I will continue to give my money and my time to this organization. Save a life, go vegan!

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

Give them more resource to help more animals!

There aren't many charities that devote their time to rescuing farm animals and publicizing this cause. I am happy with this charity and wish there would be more groups that would rescue these poor animals.

I think this organization is great. I am glad there is an organization to rescue farm animals since sadly it is something most people don't seem to think about.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

sponsoring a turkey from them every Thanksgiving makes me feel very peaceful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

rescue many, many more animals!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

My children and I are sponsers for Farm Sanctuary Animal Shelter by donating money to help them take care of the many animals they rescue from factory farming. We live in Sweden, but when we visited the US, we took a trip to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen and were given a tour of the Farm and even got to volunteer -- we got to clean out a duck swimming pool and feed apples to some huge pigs that are among the few who are allowed to live to grow to full size nowadays. At Thanksgiving time Farm Sanctuary has a programme where you can sponser a turkey -- instead of eating one. There is so much more to eat than turkeys and by not eating meat, the food resources go so much further to help people have more to eat.

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

gaining information about becoming vegan and changing my lifestyle accordingly to help animals avoid factory farming, which also helps people in the long run as the world's food supply lasts longer.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The updates on individual animals and how I have been able to help them in concrete ways.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

open and friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Use it for widespread educational/informational material -- bring the farm to more people. Also, build more rescue centres

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
