their natural environment and express behaviors

"things for human use," and thus denied the primary
protections humans enjoy, they are victims of speciesism,
a discriminatory benchmark similar to race, religion,
gender, sexual preference or age.

Farm Sanctuary operates two shelters — a 175-acre farm
in upstate New York and a 300-acre farm in northern
California. Our shelters rescue, rehabilitate and
provide lifelong care for hundreds of animals who have
been rescued from stockyards, factory farms, and
slaughterhouses. Here, the animals are given all the
care and love needed to recover from a lifetime of abuse
and neglect. All of the animals have nourishing food,
spacious, clean barns, and acres of green, sunny
pastures in which to roam."
