Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary is a place that makes you believe in the good in the world. You will find farm animals of all kinds, large and small, living together in harmony, treated with love and respect, and given top-notch care, by kind people who dedicate their lives to their well being.

Lighthouse is the most magical place on earth! Almost 300 happy and healthy rescued animals are free to roam on 54 acres as they please. Lighthouse focuses on RESCUE. They take on the hard cases, they take risks, and they follow through with their mission to rescue as many animals in need as they can. Truly the best sanctuary in Oregon, hands down.

I started visiting Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary in 2013 becoming a weekly volunteer 4 years ago. I love this place. The commitment to provide a safe, loving, forever home for the residents is so very obvious. The residents live their lives the way they choose exploring the land they live on. I’m grateful that the residents and humans of LFS are part of my life.

Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary is a magical and wonderful place. I have volunteered there for five years with many others. It takes a lot of work and much love to make it a safe and loving forever home for all the animals. It warms my heart to see the results - the animals and people living, loving, and learning together.

I have been volunteering at Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for over 2 years. It is a magical place and volunteering at the sanctuary is my favorite time of the week. The animals are all mingling, they are all so loved and well cared for. They are free to be themselves and do what they want to do. I have visited other sanctuaries but this by far the most beautiful sanctuary.

I visited Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary and was so amazed at how all the animals are happily living together. Watching a cow and a pig walk over to see what the new baby pigs recently rescued where up to gave me all the feels. Then on the other side of the barn sheep, alpacas, pigs and goats were napping while chickens wandered through. Even Helen the resident bison interacts. It’s an amazing place. It only got better chatting with Gwen. She’s a delight!

I've been a volunteer at Lighthouse for several years now, and I found it a highly rewarding and enriching experience. Everyone there tries very hard to give the resident animals a good life, and the animals respond with their love and friendship.

I have had the privilege of knowing and volunteering at Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for four years now.
It is such an experience to see animals come there being scared, neglected, abused and afraid.
Then watch them grow and become loving and social to people and each other after knowing their stories is pure joy.
Living free and happy together.
Just like rescued pregnant Betsy and son Oliver born at the sanctuary they will always be a family.

Lighthouse is aptly named, because it is a beacon of light in a world built on doing harm. It is a step stone to the world we want to create: one where humans no longer enslave animals for food. We can and should work toward a better society in which there is justice for all sentient life. A different future is possible and Lighthouse is one of the places where it’s being created.

Lighthouse is a peaceful, wonderful place for people of all ages to volunteer. They really emphasize community, so there's always a place for every volunteer. The animals are so wonderful and clearly well-cared for, and the experience of serving them is both humbling and more rewarding than you can imagine. Lighthouse is one of the best organizations I've ever volunteered with.

Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I have been involved with them for about a year & my life has changed profoundly. The caretakers are so loving & consider all of the residents as family. They take the time to nurture each resident & treat them as individuals. Every time I go there I feel a sense of calming that is unlike anything I have ever experienced. The caretakers make it very easy to become a volunteer, even if you have never stepped foot on a farm before.They are also very kid friendly. Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary is the premier nonprofit in Oregon. I highly recommend it.

I've been with Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for over a year. While looking for a sanctuary to help I immediately fell in love with all the residents. I was moved in a way that I didn't know was possible and my bond and friendship with everyone and the residents continue to endure. Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary has changed a lot over the last year but the only constant is LHS's commitment to its residents. The residents are not only fortunate to have found refuge but are also family. I am confident that anyone who decides to stop in for a visit will be filled with the same joy that I was filled with which is why I do my best to make it in every weekend. This review wouldn't be complete without a little shout out to Cracker Jack Lamb my best bud who's full of character and full of surprises as are all other amazing and colorful residents at Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary!

I recently went their yearly fundraiser. Such a great group of people who truly care about these animals and give them a loving home. The animals all looked very healthy and happy. I'll be going again soon!

This place is MAGICAL. I have volunteered at multiple sanctuaries and I like them all, but this place won my heart and dedication- I've been volunteering there since Feb2016. The animals are loved and well cared for and it is a wonderful community of people. There's no other sanctuary that I have been that allows you to be right in with the animals all the time (that's the magical part). I highly recommend volunteering there- you won't regret it!

Great sanctuary run by a committed people who are also involved in spreading the message of veganism. I always enjoy a visit, whether for a work party or hanging out with the animals.

The caretakers at Lighthouse farm Sanctuary are some of the most caring and dedicated people I have ever met. The residents who call the Sanctuary home are obviously well cared for and living their lives in safety and comfort. Their well being is obviously of utmost importance. It is a very peaceful place.

This is such a well loved sanctuary. The Jakubisin family is such a caring couple. Upon arrival you willbl be greeted by big smiles and an honest hello, how are you? You are welcomed to come visit the animals or if you feel like lending a much needed hand you can sign up to volunteer. I love that veganism is encouraged and they show so much respect to the animals by asking you not to bring any animal product on the premises. The animals are well loved and are free to roam in a safe good sized farm. Our family loves this sanctuary. We have made a few great animal friends and sadly a few beautiful souls who are no longer. We would love to see this sanctuary maintained for years to come.

I've never had the pleasure of visiting Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, but I have gotten to know a little bit about one of the people running the place. I believe they are working very hard to make Lighthouse the best that it can be, and do everything in their power to care for the animals in their charge. Thank you Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for being a voice for the animals, and a safe place for them to live out their days!
