Surrender a Farm Pet
Our mission is to be available to help people in crisis by caring for their farm animals. While we are NOT a farm sanctuary we can temporarily house, care for, rehab and find new homes for livestock in need. Find out more about the types of animals we can help with here!
Our volunteers are such a blessing to our animals and the people we serve. Learn more about how you can sign-up to start volunteering with our farm & rescue!
Adopt a Farm Pet
Find out more about the animals we are currently fostering on the farm and contact us if you would like to welcome one into your home or farm!
Animal Therapy Visit
Our animal handler volunteers love bringing people joy through our friendly farm pets! Once we receive a request, our volunteers will be notified and those available will sign-up to bring the RLF animal they are trained and certified in handling. We try our best to keep these visits 100% free but we have a limited number of requests we can accept each month based on incoming donations.
Animal education Visit
We are passionate about giving the future generation hands-on education about the humane treatment of livestock animals! All farmers are background checked and cleared to work with kids and bring animals to Leon County and surrounding schools. We try our best to keep these visits 100% free but we have a limited number of requests we can accept each month based on incoming donations.
Our logo was drawn by our founder, Shannon Carroll. In her grief, days after her daughter, Anna Brittney Carroll, had passed away she drew this logo featuring both her daughter and her first llama, Tina. While Brittney and Tina are no longer with us they will forever remind us why we do what we do! Bring joy to people in need!
Why Redemptive Love?
Redemptive love is the highest form of love. It is a sacrificial gift. It recognizes that judgment is due, but instead releases mercy. We experienced redemptive love from our Savior, Jesus Christ. In turn we have expressed redemptive love thru the adoption of our children, by redeeming the abandoned, trashed property we turned into our farm and we strive to offer redemption to the animals and people that cross our path.
Redemption refers ultimately to the saving work of Christ, who came to accomplish our redemption by giving his life in substitution for our own as the ransom price.
