Open Sanctuary Snuggles

Spring is springing! Come out to help us raise money to finish the improvements and pasture expansions that have become necessary after this years blizzards and flooding!

Join us for a fundraiser to help us rebuild, restock and rejuvenate this beautiful piece of land we share with pet, wild and farm animals, and not just restore but improve for the future!

Just $5 per person donation gives you an afternoon wandering our pens and meeting our animals up close and personal, to make a meaningful connection with the animals you’ve helped us save.

Our adorable foster puppies will be ready to meet puppy cuddlers and find their new forever companions, Apollo the baby cow will give you giant cow kisses, and our rescued dairy discard baby goats can’t wait to meet you!

Items we love to have donated: used, clean blankets/towels/sheets, new or slightly used breakaway dog collars, size medium and large, heads or boxes of lettuces, iceberg, romaine, spring mix, etc. for our baby Cornish birds who need a special diet.

If you are bringing treats to feed the animals, please read the food rules completely. No whole fruits or vegetables will be allowed on site, and everything must be cut into small bite size pieces to avoid choking hazards. Paper bags or reusable container are allowed but absolutely no plastic bags to carry food into the pens!

Broken Shovels Farm Sanctuary is a safe place for animals rescued from abuse, neglect, slaughter and exploitation. We are not a petting zoo. We do not breed or sell animals. Occasionally animals are rescued already pregnant, they and their children will live out their lives here and will never be separated, sold or used.
