Support our efforts to give these animals a name instead of a number.

Our Mission

At Farmaste, our mission is to help farmed animals become someone, not something.

You can help today by volunteering or donating. Just contact us!



  1. A place where farm animals find zen living as someone, not something.
  2. Where farm animals will go after being rescued from cruelty situations, receive necessary vet care, and live happily ever after grazing in green fields.

About Our Founder

Our founder, Kelly, has had a passion for animals since she was a young child. She would often show up late to family events because she was rescuing a turtle or herding cows off the road. She spent over twenty years recruiting new franchises for numerous brands, but ultimately decided that she would be happier self-employed as an executive recruiter.

The combination of her years of business acumen and passion for animals ultimately motivated Kelly to found Farmaste Animal Sanctuary. As a vegan, she became acutely aware of the cruelty placed on farm animals. She decided that she wanted to push back against the societal belief that farm animals were products instead of living beings. Kelly wanted to create a place that perfectly mirrors the stereotypical images we have of farm animals. They deserve to live free in those peaceful green pastures with chickens roaming the farm pecking at the ground. She is excited to share her vision of this beautiful place with everyone.
