I began volunteering in June of 2015 and it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had and so rewarding. Lee is caring, very knowledgeable and dedicated to the animals and I wish more people had his passion for animals rights. CJ Acres is truly an awesome organization.

Love this place.

The animals are so clearly respected and given as much freedom as safe and reasonable. It's not overcrowded like some sanctuaries and the animals seem genuinely happy and Lee is dedicated to the mission.

CJ Acres is home to a variety of animals including pigs, cows, chickens, horses, a donkey, sheep, lamb, and turkeys. You can tell how well they are treated by how well-socialized the animals are (even after being rescued from situations where humans did not treat them well). All the animals are eager to meet human visitors! I volunteer there quite frequently, participating in feedings and helping maintain the farm. It's always an incredible experience to interact with these loving animals. For the comments that are accusing CJ Acres of abuse, those claims are false. I highly recommend volunteering here, or helping in any way (such as sponsoring an animal). It's a great way to find a connection with the animals we often that people often don't interact with, and to give them a better appreciation and understanding of why it's so important to rescue and care for these loving beings.

I've been volunteering with CJ Acres for over a year now and it's been incredible! As someone who cares deeply about farmed animals and animal rights, there's nothing better than seeing and working with these animals up close. I can't recommend them enough!

I have been volunteering at CJ Acres for over a year. I think of it as my happy place! It's such a pleasure to socialize with the animals and other volunteers. Lee Sacket, the Lead Mare, always gives great educational information. I learn something new each time I volunteer. It is so wonderful to see these animals being so well taken care of, after living a horrific life on a factory farm. CJ Acres gives these animals a wonderful place to live out their lives. It truly is one of the happiest places on earth!

I have volunteered at CJ Acres several times and am proud to be a member of "the herd." Under the guidance of Lee, the farm is a great place for both volunteers and animals. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn new skills, grow as people, and help the animals, while the animals themselves get to live in a compassionate environment where they receive plenty of food, water, love, and attention, and have plenty of space to run, play and live. I am happy to have found CJ Acres to volunteer at and I think it is a worthwhile cause.
