Meet the animals at SAFE


Bailey arrived on September 23, 2018. She is a dairy cow who could not produce milk, as in principle sterile. Like any sterile dairy cow, she had to be sent to slaughter.


I am the biggest of all my bovine friends! I am often asked how old am I 🙂


I’m Ferdinand, the duck with the big heart!


I love going out for fresh air and hanging out with my dirty friends

Miss Piggie

I’m the queen of the pig kingdom and I love it!


I’m D’artagnan and I love spending my days swimming in the pond.


I’m so sweet and kind that humans always come and stroke my cheeks !


I am an energetic and curious pig who enjoys bossing my friend Malcolm around!


I love coming to welcome visitors to the Sanctuary with my sister Delilah! We are considered the guard geese 🙂


Adam is our sweet boy growing up, brimming with curiosity about the world around him.


Samson was brought to us by a caring soul. He had an injured leg when he arrived and was limping badly. Now that he is healed he has elected to live on the pond at SAFE.


I am a rooster that is full of energy with a personality that does not go unnoticed!

Story of SAFE

How it all started

In the fall of 2016, Catherine, founder of SAFE, bought this property to make her dream come true and finally open an animal sanctuary. At first, it was not a home for farm animals, but due to the critical situation 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, it was not possible for SAFE to allow these pigs to be sent back to become meat.
