Ways to participate/donate

Do you love animals and want to make a difference, but lack the time or space to rescue them yourself? Please consider furthering our mission as a supporter or volunteer. Every contribution truly makes a difference.

Compassion without action is just observation. But your compassionate donation, financial or otherwise, will quite literally help us save more lives.


Local to Southern California or planning a trip? Please fill out a volunteer application form if you'd enjoy an afternoon of helping out with tasks like brushing out our livestock guard dog, cuddling cats, weeding, scrubbing buckets, etc.!

Are you particularly charmed by one or some of our animals? Looking for a unique, thoughtful gift for a friend? Our animals are available for sponsorship. For $15/month, you (or your gift recipient) may receive a sponsorship certificate upon request as well as pictures, videos, and updates! We also welcome our wonderful sponsors to come meet their long-distance feathered/furry friend any time.

All sponsorship donations go directly to the specific animal's food and care. We appreciate a 6-month commitment. Click here to initiate your sponsorship by checking the "make this a monthly donation" box!

Amazon wish list

We realize that giving cash can feel impersonal. We also maintain a regularly updated Amazon Wish List, where you can see our current/ongoing needs and select specific items to donate. Please include a gift note; otherwise we won't know who sent it! You can expect a thank-you note and perhaps even a little something in return.

Networking or donating your skillset

Are you an amazing photographer? Adept at web design? Have a background in fundraising? Do you know someone local to us who owns a restaurant, and might donate their leftover produce? Or someone who is also passionate about supporting animal rescue? If so, we'd love to connect with you or them. Leveraging resources is a huge part of maintaining a successful nonprofit, and you can help us grow our network and connect the dots.

Financial donations

Ultimately, our ability to sustain all these precious lives (and continue to grow) hinges on money. We are currently hoping to add infrastructure for larger livestock, build a second rooster bachelor pad, and have the assets to confidently take on even the most challenging medical cases. Any amount is truly appreciated.

Donations can be accepted through Venmo, Paypal, or personal check, and are tax deductible.

“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
