Six Paws Farm & Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide food, shelter, and vet care to animals in need, both large and small. We also promote the humane treatment of animals through education and advocacy.
Rescue v. Sanctuary
While we consider ourselves rescuers of animals in need, we identify more as an animal sanctuary than an animal rescue. Many (though not all) animal rescues eventually focus on finding permanent homes for their animals once they've received proper care and evaluation. Here at Six Paws Farm, we focus on being their permanent home in addition to their care.
If we feel an animal that comes into our care would be better off at another sanctuary, rescue, or home, we will do everything in our power to relocate them, because we put the animal's needs first. But we also recognize that some farm animals have a difficult time finding a permanent home, for a variety of reasons. Through our mission, we want to be the final home for these animals so they never have to go through hardships again.
