Rescue, Rehab & Rehome

Reality is we would go bankrupt trying to permanently feed all the animals that come to us. But when we are able we do temporarily house animals in need, will assist them in becoming healthy and happy again then we will find them their own forever farm family.

We can take in:

Livestock/Farm animals
Cows & Calves
Goats & Sheep
Poultry (chickens, ducks, turkeys, etc)
Rabbits & Bunnies
Llamas & Alpacas & Camels
Donkeys & mules
Horses & Ponies (some restrictions)

Farm animals facing special needs.

Some exotic or pet animals with approval.

We DO NOT take in:

Dogs or Cats *
Pigs **
Wildlife ***

* Dogs and cats can pose a threat to our livestock and wildlife here. Try reaching out to breed-specific rescues, your local humane societies or tax-funded animal shelter.

** Pigs, being destructive escape artists, they have caused past hardship on our farm, fences and other animals. Try reaching out to pig sanctuaries like Flying Pig Sanctuary.

*** We are not licensed to take in or care for native wildlife. Reach out to local wildlife rehab centers or sanctuaries like St. Francis Wildlife.

We DO NOT rehome:

Aggressive animals

RLFarm CAN assist with aggressive livestock if family is in crisis and needs assistance for safety reasons. Ethically RLRescue will not rehome livestock that has shown aggression or caused injury to other animals or humans. All intact male livestock (bulls, bucks, rams, roosters, etc) are considered “potentially aggressive” until neutered. Any male livestock animal that cannot be safely neutered will not be eligible to be re-homed.

Aggressive animals posing a safety hazard will be transferred to RLFarm, transported off-site, humanely euthanized and meat donated to a local non-profit that feeds humans facing homelessness.
