Founded in 2018, by Karla and Jody Dumas, Yesahcan Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing refuge and permanent homes for farmed animals in need. The residents in our care come primarily from some of the most dire situations, such as coming directly from the animal agriculture industry and abuse, neglect and cruelty cases.
Our mission is to raise awareness and increase compassion for all living creatures, especially farmed animals. Farmed animals like chickens, pigs, cows, goats and sheep are unique beings , just like the dogs and cats we share out home with. However, they are some of the most abused creatures on the planet. Here, you are free to interact with the sanctuary residents in their natural settings through farm tours, volunteer opportunities and special events throughout the year. Be sure to reach out to us, if you would like to visit.
In the United States, 9 billion farmed animals are killed every year. You can help reduce that number by choosing to stop supporting industries that make a profit exploiting and inflicting harm on farmed animals. Eliminating or reducing the animal products you consume is the best way to make a difference!
