Kindred Spirits Sanctuary does an amazing job of rescuing and caring for farm animals that have come from various difficult situations. Everyone on the KSS team works hard to ensure their residents live the best life possible. Along with this care they provide education on the dark side of animal agriculture and they also provide a place for like minded individuals to gather and share time and space with these wonderful animals. As if they didn’t already have enough to do, KSS helps provide veterinarian care for other sanctuaries. Logan, Tony, Michelle and the rest of the staff are animal heroes.

The organization I run holds a crowdfunder to sponsor an animal at Kindred Spirits Sanctuary each year because they are honestly the best there is. Logan really loves her animals and gives them the best possible care. I'm incredibly impressed by her efforts, especially her vet tech training that allows her to be a part of surgeries her animals need. That's how much she loves her animals. She is committed to give them anything and everything they need. Best of all, Logan always is kind and welcoming to her staff, volunteers, and supporters. I'm very happy to support Kindred Spirits Sanctuary any way I can.

My neighbor had a 3 month old blind goat, and they didn't take care of it correctly. My sister, Victoria, wanted him, but it took them about a month to finally let my sister have him. She took him straight to the vet who told her he would not have lived if she had not brought him right in. My sister took such good care of him and he loved her. She named him Homer. My sister had developed breast cancer and got to the point to where she couldn't care for Homer like she had been. I went on the internet to find someone or some place to take Homer. It took a bit of sending emails, making calls, etc. I finally found Kindred Spirits and they were awesome. There was no way my sister could afford to take Homer to them so they came to her! All the way from Florida to Kentucky. At no cost to my sister. They were so nice and promised to keep my sister informed on how Homer was doing-and they did. After a few years Homer became very sick and had to be put to sleep. We will never forget him or The wonderful people who care so much for animals at Kindred Spirits.

Kindred Spirits does amazing work. Their team is kind, and they put their non-human residents first, making sure the animals are comfortable on tours. These animals are clearly well cared for and loved. I felt very welcomed and appreciated as a guest coming to tour. Big thumbs up!

Absolutely a fantastic, beautiful, love filled place. A must visit if you have a kind heart and also for anyone open to going vegetarian or vegan. I truly enjoyed my visit with these animal souls and friendly staff. Please visit and support and perhaps change your ways as I did after my visit.

I love how committed they are to the residents of Kindred Spirits! There's no mistaking what's top priority and it's the animals. I loved the tour, learning about the personalities of everyone. The work day was great, very efficient, and I felt I made a difference. The lunch they gave us was awesome! I have a lot of respect for KSS and they have big dreams that I know they will make come true.

I can’t say enough about this farm sanctuary or the people who have sacrificed so much to help the animals. They are truly doing God’s work and have grown exponentially in the past few years and always attract a devoted crowd for their events. We came here before we had kids and have since brought our kids to experience it as well and they always ask to go back.

I volunteered here with the Animal Law section of the Florida Bar and brought my kids. It truly is an amazing educational experience for all ages. I am now the President of the SALDF chapter and FAMU law and have already planned our return visit!

A wonderful experience, it was a lot of fun and heart warming to see these animals being able to live a peaceful life. When you visit this place you see these animals up close and in a much different light. It is great great work what this Sactuary does, we need more like them! :)

I have been to this sanctuary multiple times and the only thing I wish is that I lived closer so I could visit more often. It is a rare gem that allows me to forget my troubles and find a sense of peace. The animals are so sweet and the owners are amazing!
