The Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary

It’s our first Fall / Winter Fundraiser!

We’ve had quite a busy summer, we’ve taken in more homeless farm animals from ducks to chickens and another pot belly pig and now that fall has arrived it’s time to start preparing for winter. This is a very busy time for us. With winter being right around the corner our expenses to care for the rescued animals will double. We also would like to help more farm animals in need and are looking to build additional housing! 

 Mission
The Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary is dedicated to the fulfillment of three primary missions:

To provide a safe haven and assistance to neglected and homeless farm animals
To educate the public about animal care and the importance of adoption
To provide a humane example for others

The Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary is a small organization providing lifelong sanctuary to homeless and neglected animals such as chickens, ducks, peafowl, horses, and pot belly pigs. Beyond food and shelter, our animals receive the vet care they need, social interaction, and most importantly, loving care.

We rescue, rehabilitate and care for animals that once found themselves surrendered, abandoned, and exploited. The size of property and the surrounding state park allows us the unique opportunity to offer a safe haven for farm and domestic animals. The Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary focuses on those animals that often get overlooked due to species, age, color or disability.

In addition to saving lives, Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary works hard to educate and spread seeds of compassion and kindness. We share the importance of our mission by inviting visitors to our sanctuary. Guests are face-to-face with the animals they may only know from television or as dinner on their plate. They have the opportunity to learn about their behavior, personality, care and most importantly their story. At Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary, a guest can feed peacocks that once found themselves in a local shelter or sit down with a pig or two who want nothing more than blueberries and a belly rub.

Each animal at the sanctuary has their own story; each and every animal is cherished and loved. Through our community relations and visitors, we educate the public on the importance of adoption and the decision to take an animal into their care is a lifelong commitment.

Vision Statement
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

To live in a world where
There is no need for animal rescue or shelters
All animals are treated with respect and care throughout their life
Society enjoys the wonder and miracle of animals, making it senseless to use animals for entertainment or experimental purposes
