Mission

The Barnyard Sanctuary’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome farm animals that are displaced, abused or whose caregivers are experiencing hardship by providing them with a safe, loving and nurturing home. We will facilitate the adoption to families which will be able to to provide a forever home. For residents those who require special care, The Barnyard Sanctuary will provide sanctuary for the natural lifetime of the animal.

Notes from the Nonprofit

8 years ago that I founded The Barnyard Sanctuary, with the simple goal of helping people who needed to rehome their pet farm animals. Initially, we were taking in farm animals whose owners experienced illness, financial difficulties, zoning issues and loss of their homes due to foreclosures or divorce. As the word got out, local animal control officers, the NJ SPCA and other authorities turned to us to help with their farm animal cases. It was then that we learned about the world of farm animal cruelty. Our eyes were opened… our hearts were broken… and we became advocates for the animals and living a plant based, cruelty free lifestyle. Since opening our doors, we have saved the lives of over 3,000 farm animals! Today, approximately 700 farm animals call us home. It is amazing what we have been able to accomplish in just a short period of time. It is this journey that shapes our vision of the future.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
