Review for CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm, Keystone Heights, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came to be a steady volunteer with C.J. Acres when I moved to Florida in January of 2018 and have found my experience with Lee and all the animals there to be one of the most rewarding and loving experiences to have touched my life. The Florida heat and storms are challenging when it comes to feeding and animal care time but the animals know when those times are and expect us to be there with their food. Out running hard rains and lightening to see a pigs face light up to get their meal or have their water trough being filled by the cold water coming out of the hose during a 95 degree day with full humidity only to interrupt you to be sprayed and lie in the mud hole you are creating for them is an experience you have to have for yourself. Watching the goats figure out the new playground that was just installed, little baby piglets figuring out the big world that's ahead for them and all of these animals get to do this free from harm; learning that their lives matter and they are loved. When the word sanctuary is used in a name for a place where animals are living should be just that-safety, refuge; C.J. Acres Animal Rescue Farm Sanctuary is that and so much more!!! Come visit us and see for yourself!!-Kim Meyer
