Animal Acres is a farmed animal sanctuary and compassionate living center located just 45 minutes from Los Angeles.
Animal Acres works to promote compassionate living through its farmed animal rescue & refuge efforts, public education & outreach, and advocacy projects to prevent cruelty to farmed animals.
Over 150 rescued farmed animals call Animal Acres "Home Sweet Home" and we invite YOU to become a member of our sanctuary family too! Animal Acres is a volunteer-based organization and we are funded entirely by dedicated animal advocates.
Animal Acres was founded by Lorri Bauston, who is considered the “pioneer” of the farmed animal sanctuary movement. In 1986, Lorri co-founded Farm Sanctuary, which opened the country’s first shelter for farmed animals. For 18 years, she directed the group’s shelter and fundraising efforts.
