It has been a stressful year for all of us and we look ahead to 2021 with bright eyes and high hopes!
The quarantine forced us to close our little farm to the public for safety reasons. Not being able to offer our guided farm tours broke our hearts since public visit are the most joyful way we are able to share the wonder of our rescued animals with the community. It also hurt donations and volunteerism. That, along with losing several of our yearly grants, has painfully impacted our organization.
So we have taken to social media as a powerful way to connect people with the animals and with our mission of compassion! We also have been orchestrating some fantastic improvements for next year....if COVID will kindly comply.
Please continue to love and support your favorite Hope Haven animal and follow us on FB or IG or even TikTok this winter! Then get excited for an amazing 2021 with lots of farm tours, new animal enclosures, and lots of antics from the Haven OG's!
Stay safe and healthy and enjoy the season!!!
Much love and hugs,
Karen and the Haven animals
Hope Haven is a 501(c)3 non-profit farm animal sanctuary nestled in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, PA. Our mission is to rescue neglected pigs, goats, sheep, llama, donkey, alpaca, emu, and all farm birds. These animals have been surrendered at local animal shelters, confiscated by local humane agents and police, or saved from factory farms. They now live out their lives with comfortable housing, nutritious food, and companionship from others of their own kind. They also receive endless love and affection from the human components of the sanctuary!
Hope Haven is also a resource to raise public awareness about the plight of animals raised for human use. Here at the farm we promote a cruelty-free, plant-based lifestyle. Rather than focusing on the horrors and cruelty inherent in factory farming we want to showcase the individuality and personality of farm animals. Our hope is that when people realize these animals are sentient beings deserving of compassion they will make up their own minds to respect life and adopt a cruelty-free lifestyle.
If you like what you see please donate to help these ambassadors for farm animals everywhere. We appreciate everything you do to help animals, spread compassion, and make this a more joyful world to live in. Thank you!
