Each animal who lives at SASHA Farm arrives with a story to tell. Most have been neglected or abused, some have been abandoned to fend for themselves, and many bear the scars of their pasts, either physically or emotionally, but when they arrive at SASHA Farm, they begin to heal. Our staff and volunteers provide compassionate care and nourishment to heal their bodies, and maybe more importantly, members of their own species help them develop a sense of security and belonging that heals the spirit. We see remarkable transformations nearly every week. Animals who cowered in fear from our outstretched hands when they first arrived soon greet us confidently each morning. The distrust in their eyes is replaced with curiosity or calm. It’s truly a magical thing to witness, and we know that we are just as lucky as they are to experience it.
At SASHA Farm the animals come first and because we have a limited amount of staff and volunteers we do not have regular visiting hours for the public.
The best way to meet the residents of SASHA Farm is to attend one of our on-site events, but if you can’t, you can still get to know them and read their stories by clicking on one of the animal species under Meet the Animals. Maybe one will touch your heart and you’ll decide to become a sponsor.
We have a variety of avian species at the sanctuary. Our bird residents include chickens, peafowl, guinea fowl, waterfowl, and Ellie the emu.
Roaming over twenty acres of lush, green pasture at SASHA Farm are our largest ruminants; the cattle residents.
Able to roam free on twenty-plus acres of pasture are our donkeys, mules, and horses.
Energetic, silly, and loving are perfect adjectives to describe our goat residents.
You’ve probably heard a lot about pigs, such as them being one of the smarter animals on our planet.
These little beings are just a smaller, squishier version of our big pigs. Though they have a smaller stature, they still have big personalities.
