Make a Difference in an Animal’s Life
The Adopt a Farm Animal program is a community of compassionate supporters whose monthly or annual commitment provides the necessary support to care for a rescued farm animal and continue Farm Sanctuary’s lifesaving rescue, education, and advocacy work.
Keep scrolling to meet the “adoptable” Farm Sanctuary residents who would love to call you their sponsor. Each rescued animal is a survivor with a unique personality and story. Click on the animal to learn more and become their monthly sponsor!
As an Adopt a Farm Animal parent, you’ll receive a digital certificate (and an optional printed certificate) featuring your animal friend. Your donation also includes Farm Sanctuary membership and a subscription to Sanctuary, our annual publication focused on compassionate living.
Sponsoring a Farm Sanctuary resident for a friend or family member is a unique way to spread compassion and awareness with others. Just enter the shipping information for your gift recipient, and we’ll take care of the rest! Your gift recipient will receive the adoption certificate and Sanctuary subscription.

Those residing at Acton, California:
Because the animals at Farm Sanctuary have been rescued from situations of cruelty, abuse, and neglect, many of them have special care needs, including costly veterinary expenses. Since it is often too costly for one person to fund the care of a special needs animal, we must provide for many of these needy individuals with the help of multiple generous sponsors like you. As a sponsor, your contribution not only provides for your adopted friend but it also goes into a general fund that works to protect all farm animals through Farm Sanctuary’s rescue, education, and advocacy efforts. The more sponsors we have, the more animals we can commit to caring for, and so on.
We ask that you sign up for an automatic payment program. Your sponsorship donations can come directly out of your checking or savings account, or be charged to a debit or credit card. Automatic contribution programs are a convenient way to ensure the ongoing daily care of our shelter animals. They also cut down on administrative costs, which means that your contribution goes that much further to help the animals!
The minimum monthly sponsorship gift is $15/month, and the minimum annual sponsorship is $180/year.
All monthly sponsorships will automatically renew, as well as annual adoptions made after December 21, 2021. If you made an annual adoption gift before that date, you will need to reach out to [email protected] for assistance in renewing your current sponsorship(s).
