It's Give to the Max day 2022! Herbivorous Acres is a 501c3 nonprofit farm sanctuary that prevents cruelty, abuse, and neglect to farmed animals. We provide a safe place for animals to live out their lives with well-deserved peace and dignity.  Herbivorous Acres strives to make a lasting and compassionate impression on the lives of farmed animals through rescue, rehabilitation, and education. We work tirelessly to show people that farmed animals have personalities and the will to live, just like our pets. 

Herbivorous Acres is currently leasing a property located in Scandia, MN and have been able to rescue more farm animals since we started expanding on this property. We currently provide a permanent home to 3 goats, 5 ducks, two resident roosters, 4 sweet hens, and our two pigs, Zeus and Hoggle. 

We reached a HUGE milestone this year and hosted our first annual Fall Farm Festival! Our community was able to meet our animal family for the first time and experience how much our rescues have to offer as someone, not something. Herbivorous Acres Farm Sanctuary not only benefits the lives of farmed animals, but also shows the community that by embracing a plant-based diet, we can improve our health, help the environment, and save the animals. 

This year's fundraising goal is the biggest it's ever been since we started our organization. We had some very heavy losses this year when we lost Fox the pig, Bunny the goat, and Blanche the duck. We always provide the best possible vet care to our rescues that we can and given there were some severe health issues with Fox and Bunny, we need your help to rebuild our medical fund. We nearly exhausted it when trying to save them and our current and future rescues depend on the same level of care. 

Winter is also here so we have many expenses to keep the animals safe in this colder weather. We have had to officially turn on the water heaters, which is the sign that winter is here to stay! Your support ensures that each of our animals lives the healthy and happy life that they deserve. We really need your help to raise the funds to continue this life-saving work.  Give today and support our current and future residents!
