A safe, welcoming space for people and farm animals.

At Heartland, we provide high-quality, specialized care to 95 rescued farm animals, offer inclusive humane education programs for learners of all ages and provide experiential therapy to ensure our community is accessible for everyone.


Our mission is to inspire compassion for all beings.

Our Rescued Residents

Homeless farm animals aren’t usually something many people think about. But each year, an overwhelming number of farm animals find themselves in need of shelter due to a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, most cat and dog animal shelters are not equipped to handle farm animals, and there just aren’t many people eager (or equipped) to adopt a full-grown cow or pig. Sadly, most homeless farm animals face a very grim future.

We are working to change that.

Our farm animal sanctuary offers rescue, care, rehabilitation services, and lifetime sanctuary to farm animals in need. When possible, we place animals in loving, permanent 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.
