I love the Ching Farm Rescue. I believe in the mission of rescue of farm animals that are treated as property and not as compassion and care as they should be. I am a farm girl and wanted to return to my roots to show my love for animals. The Ching farm works very hard to provide compassion, shelter to all animals without question. I know my volunteering make a difference and I know that my money donation makes difference. It is a great place to volunteer and meet new friends of any species. Ramona

I had gotten two horses- a young gelding and his old momma, Pam. I was only expecting to get one, the young horse, but Pam needed a home too. I took them both. At first, I did okay financially, but then Pam had some health conditions that I couldn't afford, and on top of that, I was trying to help her gain weight, which got expensive very quickly. I put an ad up on ksl, and I was very suspicious of anyone who contacted me. I wasn't satisfied with anyone who wanted my old mare; I wanted her to go to a place where she'd be loved and appreciated and cared for in the best way. Faith contacted me. It was like a blessing from heaven. I visited her farm to check things out and I instantly fell in love. Every single animal is loved and known as an individual. And I mean every single one. Each one is adored by Faith and her volunteers. I decided to send my Pammy there, and I'm so happy that I did. While I've only been able to visit a few times, I know she's being cared for and loved. Last time I visited, Pam looked like she'd gained all the weight she needed to, and she had her own little herd of another horse and her buddy's sheep friends (the older horses are kept separate from the main herd so they stay safe). I cannot sing Ching Farm's praises loud enough! It's a save haven for all sorts of creatures, and the best part is that each one is cared for, loved, happy, and healthy.

This is a magical piece of paradise for everyone who enters the farm and for every fur/feathered baby on the farm. Once you enter the gate, you'll never want to leave. The love and pampering the animals relieve at Ching Farm is amazing and I love being able to spend time there as often as I can. Thanks Ching Farm for helping me make wonderful memories I'll treasure forever!

I love Ching Farm so much! I volunteer there whenever I visit my dad, who lives in Utah. Faith, who manages the whole operation, is such a sweetheart, and she really devotes so much of her time to the animals she cares for. Ching is a wonderful place for rescued animals to live, and I love seeing them so happy, especially after all of the horrors that they have each been through. Faith and her sanctuary have even inspired me to one day open my own farm rescue.

I’ve volunteered, donated, and sponsored animals at the Ching Farm Sanctuary for more than 10 years. Faith Ching runs the sanctuary and is an inspiring woman. The animals are rescued from all kinds of situations. Some were laboratory test animals, some came from neglectful or abusive homes, and a surprising amount were abandoned. Whether permanent or not, each and every animal on the farm is Faith’s baby. She knows the name, story, personality, and quirks of each and every one. She introduces them all as the "best boy/girl of the farm.”

In addition to animal rescue, education and adoption is another important task of the farm. Faith hates to part with any of the animals, but if she didn’t she wouldn’t have room to save more. The farm has very strict adoption criteria with adopters having to provide at least the amount of space and care the animals are already getting at Ching Farm – a high standard to meet. The staff makes site-visits to adopters’ homes to make sure they have the right environment for the animal. They also pay post-adoption visits to make sure the care is kept to an acceptable level.

Ching Farm is an amazing place filled with love and dedication to the animals. Every time I visit, I leave with a full and happy heart. Every animal at Ching is loved and cared for with the utmost respect and compassion. This place is a true blessing to all its residents. Faith Ching is a magnetic and hard-working soul. She truly lives a self-less life in devotion to all the farm animals.
