The Backyard Barnyard Foundation began in 2010 to help support a long time neighborhood farm that was home to rescued donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs and chickens. Little did we know that two years later we would actually become a sanctuary with a motley crew of rescued barnyard animals living in our backyard.
We are not a rescue and we do not adopt out . We are a small sanctuary providing a permanent and loving home to the animals in our care.
Our mission is to help spread the word that kindness and compassion starts with us and we must extend that to those around us, no matter the species, and to our planet.
Some of our greatest teachers live in our own backyard.
