Cat Lovers Needed!

IMG_7441SASHA Farm would love to have your help caring for 13 sweet cats in our cat barn.  Shifts are once a week for a minimum of 2 hours, but we would love to have you stay longer!  Our volunteers must be 18 years of age.  They clean, wash floors, do laundry, scoop litter, and feed the cat residents.

Purrs and snuggles are complimentary!

Please call Dorothy at (734) 428-9617 or email Lynn at for more information.


** As much as we would love to take more cats, our cat barn is full so we are unable to accept cats for rescue at this time. **

Norman asks, “Got Tofu?”

Got Tofu

Spring Social and Open House


SAVE THE DATE!  Sunday, May 15, 2016 is our annual Spring Social fundraiser and Open House, here at the sanctuary.  We hope you’ll be able to make it!  This will be a fantastic opportunity to meet the animals on guided tours throughout the day, hear their stories, and learn more about living with compassion.  Our friends from Shimmy Shack (the amazing vegan food truck!) will be here, so you can get yourself some delicious animal-friendly eats.  Most importantly, we look forward to sharing the importance of animal advocacy with you all.

Questions? Contact


***IMPORTANT NOTE!!!*** For the safety of all, please do not bring dogs.  We know you love your canine friends, and we do too!  It is for this reason that we do not allow dogs to visit the sanctuary…we want everyone to stay safe!  This applies to the Humane Fair in August, too. Please, keep them home.

Hurry and get your tickets here:

Run for Animals

Charles Run for AnimalsThe SASHA Farm/Charles Leister Run Woodstock Fundraising Campaign is your opportunity to raise donations for the animals at SASHA Farm through a 50 mile run that Charles will undertake at the Run Woodstock Festival on September 10, 2016.  The Run Woodstock Festival is a celebration of freedom and fitness during a trip back to a bygone age of nature and love, centered around a mantra of miles on beautiful trails in Michigan wilderness near Pinckney, Michigan.

Sanctuary and Safe Haven for Animals (SASHA) is the Midwest’s largest farmed animal sanctuary and is located in Manchester, Michigan.  SASHA Farm provides lifetime food, water, veterinary care, and housing for over 300 rescued farmed animals.  The sanctuary also provides the animals with affection and social interaction within their own species in a safe non-violent environment.

Rescuing and protecting animals has been an important mission at SASHA Farm for over 25 years and the sanctuary became a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization in 2001.  All donations made to SASHA Farm are tax deductible and will be used to ensure quality care for the animals now and into the future.  Please consider making a generous donation to this campaign by visiting SASHA Farm/Charles Leister Run Woodstock Fundraising Campaign.
