VEGAN POLICY- PFS is vegan as the founders are vegan and out of respect to the rescued animals exploited by agribusiness residing here all visitors, volunteers and events at PFS are asked to be vegan while onsite.
VISITING- PFS is not open for business to the general public however we happily schedule visits by appointment. This is for the benefit of the animals so care can be our primary focus and many of the animals can be over stressed from too many people because of the abuse they have previously experienced. Please be on time for your scheduled visit. Kids are welcome with adult supervision and you do not have to be vegan or share our faith to visit/volunteer/donate. Dress for the weather and being outdoors around animals.
FAITH- Although the cofounders of PFS are vegan and engage in the sanctuary work because of their faith, ALL are welcomed.
EGGS- Any eggs laid by rescued hens are fed back to the chickens. This is because the eggs do not belong to us and it also replenishes the nutrients lost from laying the eggs.
HOW ANIMALS COME HERE- Residents arrive at PFS for several reasons. Some are found lost and wandering, some are surrendered by private individuals, some are found through adverts, some are found via rescue networks, some are removed in governmental abuse raids.
ARE THERE ROAD SIGNS?- No, there currently are no road signs directing people to the sanctuary. This is for two reasons. 1. Not everyone appreciates the rescue work a sanctuary does so lack of signage aids in the protection of the residents. 2. Signage greatly increases the animals who are abandoned on the doorstep. Because quality of care is crucial for the residents and we want everyone to have appropriate housing and have the financial ability to care for all, signage is kept to a minimum. Plus signage would add to operational costs.
ADOPTION- PFS does not adopt out any rescued animals nor do we foster or board. All animals rescued come here as their new forever home to live in safety.
