Michigan man gives up 9-5 job to turn his family’s farm into a refuge for animals who have been rescued from cases of abuse, abandonment, and natural disasters.
Barn Sanctuary is creating better world for animals to live in
Barn Sanctuary, in Chelsea, Michigan, is a hands-on animal sanctuary dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for farm animal refugees. This includes any animals that have been abused, abandoned, sentenced to death or are victims of natural disasters. It is also a place where visitors can come face to face with the animals they may only know as dinner, and learn about the devastating effects of modern-day farm factories on the animals, the environment and human health.
Dan McKernan’s vision is a world in which animals are treated with empathy and compassion
Barn Sanctuary is an animal rescue farm and organisation in Chelsea, Michigan. They also educate the public about the horrific treatment of animals raised and slaughtered by modern day farm factories, and the positive impact that a plant-based diet can have on the environment and our health.
Dan McKernan started Barn Sanctuary May 2016. "I’ve had a farm in my family for the last 140 years and when my father asked what we should to with the property last year I jumped on the opportunity to create a farm animal sanctuary. I believe we can make the world a better place with the work we’re doing at Barn Sanctuary and help bring the direct community together."
Visitors can play with goats in a large open field, sit down with a pig who wants nothing more than a belly rub, cuddle with chickens who seek out your attention or get nuzzled by some very friendly sheep!
