People and Animals Rescuing Each Other
About Heartland Farm Sanctuary
Heartland is Wisconsin’s rescue resource for farm animals and serves as one of the state’s only shelters devoted to the care and rehabilitation of pigs, goats, chickens, and other country critters. Every year, Heartland members provide the “last chance” for dozens of abused, neglected, and abandoned farm animals who have nowhere else to go. Many of the animals find their forever homes at Heartland, and others are placed into safe, loving adoptive homes so we can keep our barn doors open for other animals in need of refuge.
In turn, each animal rescued “gives back” to thousands of people each year. Led by licensed counselors and knowledgeable animal care staff, Heartland offers therapeutic animal assisted services to children and adults with special needs, at risk youth, and youth and adults who have been traumatized from abuse or other significant loss in their lives. Our therapeutic support programs provide healing and hope for hundreds of individuals and their families each year.
