Inclusivity at Sanctuary One
As a three-pronged mission focused on People, Animals and the Earth, we welcome all people who share an interest in, and have a passion for, our organization. We do not discriminate against visitors or volunteers based on race, color, religion, sex, gender, orientation, national origin, (dis)ability, age, or lifestyle. We believe in the power of inclusivity and welcome people who want to be a part of the magic that is Sanctuary One.
We believe care farms can serve as models for treating animals humanely and honoring their intrinsic physical and spiritual value. We act as a pressure release valve for law enforcement and animal rescue agencies and shelters. We provide a place of mutual healing for both animals and people. When animals are adopted through Sanctuary One adopters sign a contract stating the adopted rescue may not be used for breeding; they are solely adopted as a companion, whether that be a dog or cat, or a 1,000+ pound Black Angus cow.
Since its founding over ten years ago, Sanctuary One has provided a refuge for over 700 animals in need. Mistreated, frightened, sometimes sick, they have found a healing home with us, thanks to the generosity of our donors and the teamwork of staff, volunteers, and interns. Along the way, the farm has also provided a peaceful haven for people of all ages.
When all people can come together at Sanctuary One and find a space to connect to the earth and to our animal friends, we believe good things can happen. We strive to build a space where everyone can bring their skills and talents to advance our mission to provide a refuge for animals and a healing place for people while promoting environmental stewardship.
