Raised by 14 people in 1 month
The Little Farm in Ojai is a animal sanctuary for rescued, neglected, and unwanted farm animals. Our hope is that through education and gentle meet-and-greets, we can help people connect with our residents and make more compassionate choices in their daily lives. We are currently running our operations on multiple properties, boarding facilities, and private homes. 

I know that this is a HUGE GoFundMe. It was tough for me to create it and punch in the amount needed. But if I don't put "things" out there, I don't make our goals and needs known, and I dont ask for help when we need it than I end up here on my own trying to make it all work. So here is to dreaming big for the future! Thank you. 

Our story- 
For over twenty years our founder has been involved in rescue, both privately and working with other non-profits. 
In October 2016 a chance run in with the runt of a litter of pigs changed everything. Her meat/slaughter fee was paid and at approximately 2-3 weeks old the decision was made and the baby pig was taken home and bottle fed. Her body was weak and she needed medical attention for infections. But her personality and intelligence was immediately obvious to everyone who met her and Ruby flourished. But it was actually Ruby's siblings that set our founder on a quest to officially file to become a non-profit and seek out acreage to be able to provide sanctuary for rescued, neglected, and unwanted farm animals. To save more, do more.

We are currently using multiple properties to support our sanctuary. We recently had to move to a much smaller property and are housing our animals in private homes and boarding facilities. We are actively looking to purchase a parcel that we can develop overtime to provide the best care to our animals, while also creating a wonderful place for our guests and supporters to come visit.  

Ultimately our goal is to purchase a 10-15 acre parcel in Ventura County and set up our facility for the animals. With safe infrastructures and enclosures, a  quarantine and medical areas, and space for them to run and live the rest of their lives happily and with dignity. 
We hope you will come along on this journey with us!
