Harvest Home works with many of the more neglected types of animals---ones discarded and abused by humans, but not routinely sheltered by many animal charities. Chickens, rabbits, birds, pigs, ducks---these are not cats and dogs, as many think of in the "pet" catagory, but they are wonderful characters in their own right, and make excellent companions

We went there last year with some friends who had invited us. We were very impressed by the quality of care that is given to the animals, the dedication of the volunteers and the cleanliness and happiness of the place. It was a beautiful experience. This is a non-profit that we whole heartedly support.

I was recently involved in a volunteer project for this organization. It was an amazing experience! The sanctuary is a wonderful, serene, loving place. The animals are all so well taken care of. It is obvious how much love and attention each animal receives and that those who are caring for the animals truly believe it is their life work to protect and nurture each one of them. I will certainly volunteer again and continue to support this organization!

I've been following the activities of Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary for several months now. I absolutely love seeing their updates on all the animals they've rescued and healed, helping them transition from livestock to loved companions. It makes me so happy to see an organization like this that encourages members of the public to volunteer, letting them experience and learn so much from seeing animals as valuable members of the earth instead of just "not human." Their staff is amazing at healing the rescued animals. Their progress is so impressive. It's the best part of my day when I see some poor chicken or sheep suffering from disease, neglect, and mistreatment become healthy and happy because they were taken in by HHAS. THANK YOU TO THE STAFF!!!!

I first visited Harvest Home a number of years ago. I was immediately impressed by the enthusiasm of the staff and the good health of the animals. I subsequently visited on a number of occasions and found the experience to be consistent. Harvest Home is evidence that you don't have to have hundreds of acres to have a wonderful sanctuary for animals and for people seeking out a special experience.

Harvest Home is one of my favorite organizations! I adopted my ex-battery hens from Christine at Harvest Home. It's very rewarding to see them blossom in good living conditions. I'm grateful for Harvest Home for recognizing that even though they are considered 'throw-aways' by the egg industry, they are still creatures worthy of living. Keep it up, Harvest Home!

I first went to Harvest Home for their annual Toast to the Turkeys celebration when a friend of my shared their post. I love the sanctuary. It's smaller than many and most of their animals are bunnies and the most amazing assortment of birds, ever. First time I was able to actually snuggle with a turkey! Besides chickens and turkeys they have ducks and some game birds I've never seen before. I loved sitting in the bunny house and watching the buns do their own thing. They have helped with the large rescues that other sanctuaries have organized and taken in some of those wonderful hens. The people are warm and friendly. Looking forward to this year's holiday event.

This is one of the best sanctuaries I have ever seen. Its beautiful location is perfectly matched by the beautiful, open-hearted people who run it. The care and tenderness they show to each of the animal residents is a delight to see - they are making a difference every day both in the lives of the animals lucky enough to live there but also for the visitors who flock there to learn more about turkeys, pigs, rabbits, ducks, chickens, and more! The whole place is a true animal haven and I wish I could be there every week!

Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary is close to my heart. They specialize in rescuing birds - hens, turkeys, and other farmed and non-farmed species - and rabbits, but also have resident goats, pigs, dogs - any animal who needs their care. The whole place is founded on one fundamental premise: compassion for all creatures. And the folks involved with the day-to-day running, maintenance, and support of the place are some of the kindest, most altruistic, sensitive, caring and truly compassionate people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. I volunteer there occasionally and can see why people just fall in love with the place and the residents. It's a very special sanctuary - nestled in the middle of wide open countryside, surrounded by vineyards, and is a true haven for anyone. I recommend this sanctuary with all my heart!

I volunteered here over the summer and I must say the people and animals are terrific. It is quite obvious how much these folks care about their sanctuaries' mission. They take excellent care of their animals and do a great amount of outreach in their community. This wonderful safe haven deserves much public gratitude for all their efforts.

We adopted some beautiful rescue hens from Havest home! They were in beautiful shape thanks to this rescue. They delivered hens to our home and went over their adoption contract, very professional rescue! We are very pleased with the hens we have adopted! This is our third adoption from Harvest Home. Overall this is just a wonderful sanctuary that does great things!

I volunteered at the sanctuary for the first time, this October. I absolutely loved it there! It's so peaceful, and the animals are obviously very well cared for. Karen and Christine are both lovely to be around, and you can see how they sincerely love the animals. I plan on volunteering twice a month, and attending all of their events, from now on.

A wonderful organization absolutely dedicated to the animals they rescue. I've visited two different times. The people who work there are some of the most caring and compassionate people I've ever met. You can tell that they love their job and the enthusiasm is contagious! It is so easy to fall in love with the animals after spending an afternoon getting to know them and their personalities! One of my favourites is Kona the turkey - he loves to show off his beautiful feathers to visitors. I love being able to keep in touch with the sanctuary via social media, getting updates about animal friends and seeing new rescue and adoption efforts. Harvest Home is an amazing place for humans and animals!

My husband and I had the honor and privilege of volunteering at Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary for several years when we lived in California. This is a super organization that does so much not only for their animal residents but also for the entire community. They inspired us to be more involved in animal rescue and we will continue to support them in whatever way possible.

Our small animal sanctuary (Friendlyfarms.org) has been working with Harvest Home since it's inception and we have continually been amazed and enthralled with how Harvest Home has expanded it's services, advocacy, and compassionate care. Harvest home had aided us on many occasions with rabbit and Cavie rescues with no holding back on their support. We have taken in several of the rescue hens from recent egglayer shutdowns and these birds are a big joy in our lives. If anyone is looking to support a fantastic operation, I believe you would be very fulfilled working with Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary.

I visited Harvest Home a little over a year ago, and found it to be welcoming, homey, and a lovely sanctuary for its animal residents. I have been a monthly donor for some time and feel my funds are well used and help support the animals directly. I have just started to volunteer there and the experience has been very rewarding.

I have donated and volunteered here (though sadly, I moved and I can no longer volunteer), and Harvest Home is one of my favorite animal nonprofits. The animals here are able to live out the remainder of their lives in a happy place with lots of attention, affection, and delicious food. The animals come from troubled pasts and some may be a bit shy, but you can see the happiness and newfound peace in every one of them.

My only caution is that you may find yourself so taken in by the wonderful animals that you end up questioning your eating habits - and really, that's a good thing. How can you eat a pig after you've met Mohawk?

Rufus, Josh and Razzle became my beloved bunnies because of Harvest Home. Many other rabbits plus lots of other species in need are cared for by Harvest Home. An excellent organization devoted to the rescue of and love for wonderful animals.

I was touched to know about the work Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary does, and have donated to it on several occasions. They do good work, and because of organizations like them, animals are taken care of.
