SoulSpace Farm Sanctuary is grounded in the belief that animals are highly sentient, worthwhile, and spirited creatures who exist for their own reasons independent of simply existing for human consumption.
More than 9 Billion farm animals are killed every year in the US alone. These animals die to produce our meat, dairy, and eggs. Across the globe, the number of deaths exceed 70 billion (more than 6 million animals every hour). 97% of the 9 billion that die are slaughtered in factory farms. Not only is the suffering these animals endure, horrific and cruel, it is simply not sustainable for our us as a people or a planet.
We are painfully aware that we cannot save them all.
The vision of SoulSpace is to save, rehabilitate and protect the ones we can. We want to care for, nurture and support these animals as individuals and ensure their health, happiness, and comfort for their lifetime. We know that in doing this, the animals will surely inspire people to move toward change in how we treat and view farm animals. Each and every person, that makes even the smallest lifestyle change toward nonviolence and compassion, saves these animals.
SoulSpace was founded by a group of current and former law enforcement professionals. We currently have 11 acres of beautiful land, with three barns and a storage garage for hay, food and supplies. We acquired the land in May of 2015 and have made fences and updated one of the barns into a home for our 14 rescued animals, including chickens, sheep and a pot belly pig. We have so much more work to do!
In order to save more animals from cruelty, we need to install approximately 8 acres of fencing on the remaining property. We need to do major work on the other two barns; making stalls, fixing doors, repairing the floor, replacing windows,...etc. We will need to ensure each species we take in has its own particular environmental and housing requirements met. We also need to build a quarantine area where incoming animals remain until they are cleared to join resident animals.
We seek to support and nurture each individual animal at SoulSpace so that they may thrive and become the greatest of ambassadors for the 70 billion killed a year, worldwide, that we cannot save.
The Residents of SoulSpace are their face. We are their voice. Please help support our efforts to save the ones we can and educate future generations to save the rest.
