A Holiday Message

A Holiday Message to our SASHA Farm Supporters
The SASHA Farm Board of Directors, its animal residents, and our wonderful and compassionate volunteers who come rain or shine every day to care for our animals, wish to thank our supporters for all that you do.  Without you, SASHA Farm could not be the safe haven that it is for our incredible and amazing residents.  Your donations and your support of our various events throughout the year allow our new residents like Laddie, Eve the pig, and Nell and Sophie the Nubian goats, to have a place they can call home forever.  And for our other animals who have been here a while, such as Sheldon the sheep and the pigs June Carter Cash and Johnny Cash, and all of their very good friends, they know without a doubt they will be safe and sound and well cared for, and most importantly, loved.  We have lost some animals this year and we have mourned together, but we have welcomed more and will keep doing so with your help.  Thank you again for continuing to be the voice for the animals through your support of SASHA Farm.  It has made 2016 a great year for our sentient beings, and we look forward to continuing our work with your indispensable partnership.

A Successful Fundraiser . . . Because of You!

SASHA Farm‘s annual benefit and auction is our largest fundraiser each year.  The money raised allows us to continue providing food, shelter, and medical care to animals who rarely received these necessities prior to becoming our residents.

SASHA Farm became a non-profit, 501(C)(3), charitable organization in 2001.  We celebrated 15 years of animal rescue and animal welfare education during our banquet on October 28, 2016.  Each year, our fundraiser is made successful by our attendees and those who donate to our auction.  A big “Thank You!” goes to everyone who supported us throughout these past 15 years and who continue to support us.

Please help us thank our 2016 auction donors by recognizing their contributions and help support them by your patronage.

Thank You

Hometown Life Article


The Shimmy Shack 2017 Michigan’s Sexiest Vegan’s Calendar is getting well-deserved attention from the Observer and Eccentric Media’s Hometown Life site.  Writer, Sharon Dargay, interviewed Shimmy Shack’s owner, Debra Levantrosser, to discuss her reasons for creating the calendar and her charitable donations from the profits.

Fifty percent of the profits from the 2017 calendar will be donated to SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary and the calendar was filmed on our grounds.

“SASHA Farm’s values match our values.  We believe animals have personalities and deserve love.  To us, eating a pig is the equivalent of eating a dog.  If people got to know pigs, they’d see pigs have personalities, just like dogs, and the same with cows,” Levantrosser said.  “We like what SASHA Farm does and how they do it.”

Thank you Debra!  We agree!

You can purchase a 2017 Shimmy Shack calendar on their site HERE.  You can read the full article HERE.

SASHA Farm: A Coloring Book for Rescued Animals

SASHA Farm: A Coloring Book for Rescued Animals by E.J. Miranda

We truly have wonderful volunteers and supporters.  Erin Miranda Patiño, a volunteer at our sanctuary, dedicated several months of work toward the creation of the one and only SASHA Farm: A Coloring Book of Rescued Farm Animals!  Her work and dedication to our sanctuary is inspiring.

Besides driving two hours each way to work at the farm every week, Erin took time away from her evenings to create this coloring book on our behalf.   We don’t know how she managed to do it all and work a full-time job too, but we can’t thank her enough.

The profits from the sale of the SASHA Farm: A Coloring Book of Rescued Farm Animals go to the sanctuary and you can order this coloring book directly from Amazon.  Don’t forget that if you order from Amazon, choose to have SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary as your Smile Charity and we will receive additional donations for every purchase you make through Amazon.

Thank you Erin!
