I have had the pleasure of visiting this sanctuary for a handful of public tours over the year and have followed the rescue stories and other work that they do closely. I am always impressed by and appreciative of the great work that these people do for animals of all kinds. Their cruelty case work is particularly impressive - especially considering their small, but talented team.
I am a monthly donor to Pasado's Safe Haven through an animal sponsorship. I have visited a few times and have never been anything short of astounded at the care and love they have for the animals. The animals are always healthy, active, and alert. Their pastures are clean and inviting, filled with rocks, dirt, grass, trees, and/or large open fields - pretty much anything the animals would need to make a home in this kind place. If you are looking for an animal sanctuary to support, I would highly recommend this one for their amazing animal care.
I adopted my sweet Lilly dog from Pasado's Safe Haven last month after she was rescued from a horrible puppy mill. You can tell the staff truly cares about the animals and the work they do. They took the time not only to help me find a dog, but to help me find the RIGHT dog. My home is filled with so much happiness thanks to Lilly and thanks to Pasado's Safe Haven.
This organization does incredible work to fight animal cruelty and provide a safe place to land for many animal survivors of abuse and neglect. Their approach is full-circle to address rescue, homelessness prevention, education and outreach, and their staff is incredibly dedicated to this work. Pasado’s Safe Haven fills a gap in our system and we are lucky to have them working so hard in our community.
Just realized that they are GFAS certified. I'm not surprised, but this is a huge accomplishment, and should make every donor feel safe and secure that the animals that are rescued are being cared for in a facility with the highest standards, and with oversight to those standards. Good job Pasado's, on always pursuing that highest standard in sanctuary care.
I am proud to have been involved with Pasado's Safe Haven for the past 12 years. This non-profit is exemplary in every way.
I have been volunteering at Pasado's in various capacities since 2009. I have learned how to muck pastures and stalls, feed lettuce to chickens and bottle-feed baby goats. I have walked dogs, played with cats and cleaned chicken coops. I have been so close to a cow that their sheer mass and size have given me pause. For someone like me, who has loved animals since before I could even walk, volunteering at Pasado's feels like coming home. It doesn't matter if I am covered in poop, hay and sweat, I feel like every minute I spend there is worth it because I am helping the animals that are in need. I love Pasado's!
My husband and I have volunteered at Pasado's Safe Haven for years and love both the rescued animals and the staff who care for them. It's a wonderful respite for farm animals and people like us who prefer to see them living happy lives.
This nonprofit fills a unique role. They work hard to get at the root causes of animal cruelty, and to make systemic changes that impact the way people think about and treat animals. Their impact is far reaching, and the sanctuary is an amazing place for people to connect with the animals rescued from cruelty.
When I reached out for help with a hoarding situation involving a cats a dog three rabbits and over 300 chickens, I received tremendous help from Kim, their cruelty investigator. Anytime I have dealt with this organization I have been treated courteously and with compassion. In a previous year while working to assist with barn cat placements, Stephanie made herself available at every stage and listened to/followed up on every suggestion I made - her dedication and the obvious caring about the individual lives of every animal in the sanctuary made the whole process a delight. In every communication I have had with Jenny, I have received a prompt response and assistance in finding the answers to my questions. I appreciate the "genuineness" of everyone I have met in this organization, they truly care about the animals.
I never met a more caring, dedicated, and passionate group of people than I have at Pasado's Safe Haven. Everyone there from the management/administrative team to the farm hands loves the animal residents. It evident from the way they speak about them and how they treat them. Every animal is cherished and loved, no matter what. I want to spread the word to as many people as possible about this wonderful organization!
Amazing sanctuary. Donations are used wisely and the money goes far. Caring staff and volunteers. :)
I have been a volunteer at Pasado's Safe Haven since 2001. It is a wonderful sanctuary for rescued abused farm animals, as well as dogs and cats. They not only receive top notch care, but lots of love as well. The staff and volunteers strive to end animal abuse, whether domestic or farm animals.
Fantastic work for the animals! A great place to volunteer on an ongoing basis or for a community or company caring day. Very supportive. Also, love the events at the sanctuary: Fire & Earth cooking classes, tours, LoveBash! and celebrations for the turkeys. Absolutely do visit this caring place. The animals arrive at the sanctuary from terrible situations of abuse and neglect — however, the sanctuary itself is a happy, caring place of healing on a beautiful property. They do great work including educational outreach, promoting plant-based meals, and advocating for animals (including working with local police and animal welfare organizations).
Amazing! I've visited several animal sanctuaries, including Farm Sanctuary and The Gentle Barn, and Pasado's Safe Haven vastly outshines them all in terms of animal care and teamwork.
Best rescue I've ever volunteered for. Much better environment for the animals compared to the typical animal shelters with overcrowded kennels. It is in a natural setting, and well-designed. The dogs have their own little cabins with a doggy door to their own yard. Nice short trail by a stream and roads around the sanctuary to walk the dogs.
Love this place! So many animals! So many great caregivers and volunteers.
I am so proud to be involved with Pasado’s. This organization has saved and changed the lives of so many animals and being a part of that is truly an inspiration and has changed my life. On top of doing such effective and meaningful work, they make it easy for volunteers like me to participate by being incredibly organized and well run, and providing a vast variety of opportunities to get involved.
