Welcome to J and J Farms Animal Sanctuary!

We provide care, comfort and compassion to abused, abandoned or otherwise unwanted farm animals, many of whom have special needs.


About Us!

J and J Farms Animal Sanctuary, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit animal sanctuary located in Saxonburg, PA.

Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate farm animals. We provide a lifelong home to each of our adopted creatures, full of love, compassion and environmental enrichment. From tiny bantam chickens to giant draft horses, over 100 amazing animals are currently living their best lives here at the Sanctuary.

Please note we are not an animal shelter. We're a farm animal sanctuary. We don't currently have the resources to take in surrendered cats, dogs, other domestic pets or wildlife. Thanks!


How to Help!


Caring for over 100 animals isn't cheap. From ensuring everyone receives proper nutrition, medical care and daily enrichment to maintaining fencing and other infrastructure around the farm, the bills add up. We're a small organization with no paid staff, so you can be sure 100% of your donation goes directly back to our mission. No amount is ever too small.



We're always in need of volunteers! Whether it's an ongoing commitment or just a few hours one afternoon, all help is very much appreciated. We have plenty of volunteer opportunities to fit in anyone's wheelhouse. If you're interested in helping out at the farm, please feel free to email us at volunteer@jandjfarmsanimalsanctuary.org or send a message to our Facebook page for a faster response.



As a small operation, we are regularly looking for creative ways to raise money. If you have an idea or would like to host an event or fundraiser on our behalf, we'd love to hear from you!



We're not open to the public on a regular basis, but we have lots of planned events here at the Sanctuary. From gnome making workshops to relaxing yoga, there's something for everyone. Check out our events section for a detailed list.

Come hang with us on Wednesday, July 17 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm for another fun craft night! Wine bottle incense burners are a wonderful way to recycle old glass bottles and they look super cool, too! There’s something so eye-catching about seeing the smoke swirling around through the translucent glass as the incense stick burns, plus all the ashes are neatly contained in the bottle when you're done.

Your $20 donation to the Sanctuary covers all materials, including painting supplies and incense sticks to take home. Not crafty? No worries! We'll be there to assist anyone needing some inspiration or an extra hand.

Please note, this is a 21+ BYOB event. Feel free to bring snacks along, too!

murder at the skull manor

Join us this October as we travel back in time to the era of flappers, speakeasies, and jazz to the roaring ‘20s to solve a murder while attending the annual Skull Manor Ball, hosted by the Great Lord Hatsby!

You won’t just be watching the drama unfold, but will instead be in the thick of it as you come dressed as 1 of 25 character options and attempt to solve the mystery while keeping secrets of your own safely guarded.

All proceeds benefit J and J Farms Animal Sanctuary, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Make this the best date night yet, a fun night with friends, or a family game night. This is a 21+ event. Cash bar and mini games available for the duration of the event. J and J Farms Animal Sanctuary merchandise will also be available.

See you Saturday October 19, 2024 from 6-9 PM with doors opening at 5 PM. Dinner to be served as guests arrive, with the night’s festivities starting at 6 PM. The party is at 155 Pittsburgh St. Saxonburg, PA 16056.


It is time for the Great Lord Hatsby's annual Skull Manor Costume Ball! Lord Hatsby's manor is an old estate in the heart of Spider City known for its captivating architecture, mysterious ambiance, and unspeakable history. The townspeople have been scurrying about the streets to get ready for the wonderful night of great food, inspiring conversations, and outrageous gossip.

This has been a daunting year of dissension and discord among many of the residents of Spider City. Rumors of scandalous controversies, such as blackmail and thievery, have been circulating throughout the town’s grapevines. We all hope everybody can put aside their differences for a night of fun. If not, misfortune might be on the horizon.

Reserve your ticket now, select from a list of 25 characters to come as, and solve the murder at the infamous Skull Manor. Tickets available through Zeffy.

There is an optional ticket fee. To avoid it, select "other" when asked to add a contribution to Zeffy at the checkout page.
