About the Sanctuary

How it Started

In Fall of 2016, Catherine, the founder of SAFE, bought this property to make her dream a reality and finally open up an animal sanctuary. At first, it was not intended to be a home to farm animals, but due to the exposure of the plight of farm animals, I realized that I could make a difference in the lives of farm animals.

One day, three pigs escaped on their way to a slaughterhouse and roamed the countryside for about a month. With my plans to open a sanctuary, there was no way that SAFE would allow these pigs to be sent back to become meat.

A sanctuary in Ontario caught them, but were unable to keep them as we all know, pigs are huge and not necessarily easy to manage. The closest sanctuary who was able to accommodate three large pigs was in Tennessee.
