Graze in Peace is a 20-acre farm animal sanctuary for animals such as pigs, sheep, llamas and chickens who through unfortunate circumstances found themselves with no other place to go. Many of the animals we’ve taken in were once beloved family companions, some were at the auction, some were being neglected, some were simply thrown out or abandoned and left to fend for themselves in the woods.
Once we decide to take an animal, we take full responsibility for their health and well-being for the rest of their lives. We do not foster or adopt out any of the animals. We never purchase animals and we do not take owner give-ups from people or farms that are continuing to use animals for personal gain.
If you have an animal you can no longer care for or know of a farm animal that may need our help, please fill out the Farm Animal Intake Application and someone will evaluate your situation and contact you if we feel we can be of assistance. Given that our space, staffing and funds are limited, we must, unfortunately, prioritize the cases we’re called on daily to help with.
If the animal is in an emergency situation, call your local police department or animal control officer. You can also call 207-558-2005 and leave us a message with any urgent concerns or questions. For less urgent cases, you may find another solution in one of the listings on our Resources page.
The more pastures we can fence, the more funds we have for medical supplies, vet calls, animal feed and caretakers, the more animals we can help. Please consider making a donation or becoming a sponsor for one of the rescued farm animals here. Every dollar helps the animals in one way or another.
