It's Spring Forward 2021! 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 4 goats, 5 ducks, two resident roosters, and one sweet hen in addition to our two original pigs, Fox and Zeus. We had to cancel multiple in-person fundraising events in 2020 and so far in 2021 due to COVID-19 and we really need your help to raise the money that we would have during those events to continue this life-saving work.
When we are open to the public (once things are safer due to COVID-19), we will start holding farm events and volunteer opportunities. Herbivorous Acres wants to reach our community to teach compassion and let our animals show people how much they have to offer. 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. Now that spring has sprung, we have many expenses that we incur to keep the animals healthy, happy, and safe while out and about in the nicer weather.
