Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Our mission is to rescue farmed animals who have been neglected, abused, starved, or abandoned by providing them with food, shelter and medical care so that they can live the remainder of their lives free from pain and suffering. We also raise public awareness of the plight of mistreated animals through outreach programs, school visits, and animal sponsorship opportunities. In this way, we demonstrate that providing a permanent, nurturing environment for all agricultural animals is our role as a responsible society that values the sanctity of animal life. Our Vision We envision that the animals we rescue will become ambassadors for other farm animals who are victimized by their owners; that our outreach programs in schools, churches and other entities will call attention to the heartless treatment that far too many agricultural animals experience; and that a steady stream of donations and animal sponsorships will ensure that our sanctuary will continue to grow in size, while gaining regional recognition and respect.

Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary is an awesome organization that takes in abused animals, most of which are on the way to slaughter. The owner Lisa Miskella and her team not only provide medical care to these deserving beings; she and her team give them the love and affection they deserve. They experience such care as they've never felt before, with the touch of loving hands and affectionate hugs. The animals stay at this loving sanctuary for the rest of their lives. They don't suffer anymore. Being a member of the Board is an honor and a sincere pleasure because I know how much Lisa and the sanctuary team love animals and how deeply devoted they are to saving abused farm animals from horrors. I thank Lisa and her team for all that they do for animals. They are heroes.

I have been a donor for quite sometime. The work that they do with the animals at Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary is amazing. They also went to my daughter’s Summer Camp and brought some animals and talked about each animal and their lives before and after being rescued. Love this Sanctuary!

Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary is the most amazing place! The founder, Lisa Miskella, provides individualized care to each and every one of the animals. She takes in animals most people wouldn’t and she does everything possible to provide them with an excellent quality of life. It’s truly one of a kind!

Freedom Farm is an amazing place because it was founded on the basis of love and compassion and wanting to make a difference. The founder, Lisa Miskella, cares so deeply about these animals that she will do whatever it takes to nurse them back to health. I’ve seen her bottle feeding goats, carrying a duck because he can’t walk, and wrapping a chicken in a blanket because he was sick. She goes above and beyond.

Lisa was exceptional in her care of a chick I hatched last June of 2020. She welcomed her into her sanctuary and gave her love, wonderful attentive care, and did a magnificent job with her medical care. Lisa devotes her time and resources to helping any animal she comes into contact with getting the love and quality care these animals deserve. I only hope the community recognizes this and supports Freed Farm Animal Sanctuary as well.

FFAS is run on donations, as are most animal rescues, as one who has seen terrible animal neglect many times, I am a full supporter of FFAS and their vision.......we share the same one.....nothing else should matter except the care of these animals that would stand no chance in this cruel world without the selfless dedication of a few.

FFAS is an amazing place. Each resident (rescue animal) is valued. They all have a story, a name, an identify and the opportunity to live a life free of cruelty and full of love. I have volunteered at other animal rescuer organizations and have really enjoyed my time with these organization, however my time at FFAS has been life changing.
