Kindred Spirits Sanctuary was founded in late 2003 in response to an overwhelming need for farm animal sanctuaries.

Industrialized or factory farming operates on the basic premise that farm animals are mere commodities, not thinking, feeling beings.

Kindred Spirits is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to ending the abuse and suffering of farm animals through direct rescue, advocacy, and education. We seek to provide a place where people can connect with these sentient beings and discover their unique (and often humorous!) personalities.
