Our sanctuary is home to a diversity of animals, including sheep, goats, horses, camels, bunnies, cats, calves, and various breeds of chickens and roosters. All our animals come from dairy farms, meat farms or livestock auctions. We take them in as infants, nurture them with bottle feeding, and later find them permanent homes as companion animals. None of the animals we place for adoption are ever intended for meat production.
Our adoption process involves formal contracts, ensuring the animals will live at larger sanctuaries or family farms. Essentially, we serve as foster, continuously rescuing new animals and securing them new loving homes. We don’t breed our goats. If you are looking to adopt a farm friend please feel free to reach out. Before adopting goats, cows, or pigs, ensure your township permits their ownership. Verify that your property meets the township's land and fencing requirements. We encourage adopting at least two animals or a bonded group for their well-being. If you're genuinely interested, please email us at our e-mail address.
The land and buildings that make up our sanctuary have a storied past, dating back to the 1700s. This historical backdrop lends a unique charm to our sanctuary, offering a glimpse into the bygone eras of our community. The property was once owned by none other than William Penn himself, a prominent figure in American history.
Our current owner has lovingly cared for this property for the past decade, transforming it into the sanctuary it is today. As of July 2023, we celebrate a decade of dedication to providing a safe and nurturing environment for both people and animals.
One of the cornerstones of our sanctuary's success is the invaluable contribution of volunteers. We welcome individuals passionate about animal welfare and conservation to join our cause. If you're interested in volunteering, you can find our volunteer application on our website. Our dedicated volunteers play a crucial role in caring for our animals, tending to tasks like providing water, ensuring a steady supply of hay, attending to the feline residents in our cat room, and maintaining the cleanliness of our barns and stalls. Additionally, our volunteers assist with activities such as goat yoga, making each day at the sanctuary an experience.
Our sanctuary offers a range of events designed to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience. Whether you're looking for an educational outing or a heartwarming encounter with our animals, we have something special for everyone. Our services include public farm animal husbandry sessions, where you can explore our sanctuary and learn about the animals and their stories. For those seeking a more intimate experience, we offer private farm animal husbandry session that provide a personalized and in-depth look at our sanctuary. To create lasting memories, we offer private cow cuddling sessions as well as goat and pig cuddling. These interactions offer a unique opportunity to connect with our animals. Take your time and look through our website.
Rose Bridge Farm operates as both a farm and a sanctuary; we have farm friends who find their permanent residence at Rose Bridge and we participate in many different animal rescue efforts. We not only raise our own animals but also extend our care to animals rescued from the dairy industry and other rescue efforts.
In the case of rescued animals, particularly those from the dairy industry, the farm serves as a sanctuary. Instead of being sent to traditional farms or processing facilities when they are no longer productive, these animals find refuge at Rose Bridge Farm. We provide them with a safe and loving environment, allowing them to live out their lives peacefully.
Additionally, the farm actively seeks forever homes for these rescued animals. This commitment to finding suitable and caring homes ensures that the animals continue to receive proper care and attention even after leaving the sanctuary.
The dual role of being a farm and a sanctuary reflects a compassionate approach to animal welfare, combining sustainable farming practices with a dedication to rescuing and rehoming animals that may otherwise face challenging circumstances in the conventional agricultural industry.
Our neighbor farm, "Organic Heirlooms," located right next door, operates as a nursery specializing in cultivating organic vegetables in lots of shapes and colors. Our primary goal is to provide people with access to fresh and nutritious food choices.
In addition to our vegetable cultivation, we also host engaging workshops for both children and adults. And for those seeking a unique and joyful experience, we offer the delightful practice of goat yoga.
