Sponsor a rescued animal from Farm Sanctuary for Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day the perfect gift for the special lady in your life may be right at your fingertips. Rather than the traditional flowers or necklace, Farm Sanctuary offers sponsorship opportunities for the rescued animals that call their shelters home.

“At our sanctuaries, we witness first-hand the strong maternal bonds formed between mother farm animals and their offspring,” said Farm Sanctuary’s National Shelter Director Susie Coston. “Unfortunately, on factory farms most farm animals are separated shortly after birth and never get to experience a life-long bond with their mothers. When farm animals are separated from their loved ones, they experience the same anxiety and depression that people do. I can’t think of a better way to honor the special mother in your life than by providing for the care of an orphaned animal or a courageous mother who fought to care for her child, even when her own well-being was neglected.”

Animals at Farm Sanctuary depend on funding from caring individuals to help with the cost of food, support, and veterinary care. Sponsorship packages make a year-long commitment to a Farm Sanctuary animal through monthly, quarterly, biannual, or annual payments. Sponsors receive a personalized adoption certificate and a beautiful color photo of their adopted farm friend.

Those interested in sponsoring an animal for Mother’s Day may call 607-583-2225 ext. 225 or visit Farm Sanctuary online to view the animals available for sponsorship.

The public is invited to visit with all the animal residents at Farm Sanctuary now through the end of October at the organization's shelters in Watkins Glen, New York and Orland, California. For tour information, please visit farmsanctuary.org.
