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.
