WHAT IS A SANCTUARY?
Sanctuary is a place, a mission, a way of life, a state of being.
It is a space of refuge and tranquility, where life is sacred and trauma is healed, where humans and other animals are free from harm and live in peace with dignity. In the physical world, as in our hearts, Sanctuary is a safe place where transformation can occur.
Whispering Acres Farm Animal Sanctuary has provided that place of peace for so many rescued farm animals. In turn, these animals are ambassadors, representing the billions more like them currently suffering in an unjust system.
These survivors’ stories — which illustrate their sheer will to live, their sentience, their awe-inspiring resilience, and their unending ability to love and forgive — create deep connections and compassionate understanding in those who open their hearts to them and face the realities of their pain.
While we can’t rescue all the animals, we know that Sanctuary can heal the animals who have been rescued, and fundamentally impact — often with lasting change — the people who hear these messages of hope, healing, compassion, and love.
At Whispering Acres Farm Animal Sanctuary, we meet people where they are on their journey, without judgment, and model a new way to live with farm animals without exploitation of them, our shared planet, or the workers and communities impacted.
By meeting cruelty with kindness, and treating all beings with respect, we can all demonstrate the Power of Sanctuary.
Due to Winter Weather, Mud, Muck and construction here at the Sanctuary, tours will resume in April 2023.
Reservations are open to book guided tours. Advance registration is required.
