Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary was founded in November of 2014 by two middle school teachers who wanted to pair their love of animals and their concern for students to create a more compassionate world. By partnering children and adults who have suffered loss, trauma, neglect, or loneliness with animals who have experienced the same, magic is sparked. Friendships born between humans and animals encourage people to think of them as individuals with feelings and personalities, and the empathy born from these relationships creates kindness and goodwill toward all creatures and all people, something this world could use a great deal more of.

The mission of Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary is to provide a refuge for animals to live out their lives enjoying kindness, compassion, and permanent sanctuary, and to provide opportunities for education to the general public.

The sanctuary shall:

  • Advocate love and compassion for creatures and the responsibilities human beings have to demonstrate that love through protection and advocacy for our voiceless companions.

  • Provide education promoting the humane care of animals, encourage ecological and moral responsibility and the part each individual can play in making compassionate dietary and lifestyle decisions.

  • Establish a place for children and adults including at-risk youth, veterans, foster children and teens, the elderly, and those with special needs to learn about and connect with animals in a loving and respectful way.

  • Meet the needs of rescued animals and provide them with appropriate shelter, nutrition, medical care, companionship, and unconditional love.
