Visit the Sanctuary!

Heartland Farm Sanctuary is currently closed to visitors due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Watch this space for more information about how you can safely visit us in the spring of 2021. Questions in the mean time? Email us at VisitUs@HeartlandFarmSanctuary.org!

If you’d like to visit with the rescued residents of Heartland Farm Sanctuary without leaving home, a virtual tour is the option for you! Virtual tours are perfect for your next online family chat, a friend’s digital birthday party or your Zoom happy hour! Just include your meeting link (we can accommodate most types of video conferencing software) and we will call in to give your group a virtual tour of the sanctuary.

Our Rescued Residents

Heartland has been recognized as one of the nation’s premier farm animal sanctuaries. We provide high-quality, specialized care, hope and healing for animals who have suffered abuse, neglect, and have nowhere else to go. Many of our rescued residents experience safety and compassion for the very first time after walking through our sanctuary doors.

The vast majority of rescued animals who find hope at Heartland will remain at the sanctuary for their entire lives. When possible, we place animals in safe and loving homes. And we serve as a resource for shelters and county agencies around the state who request our assistance with farm animal abandonment and cruelty cases.
