Help Farm Animals in the general DC area

  1. Join our network of farm rescue people – help us find small farms willing to temporarily or permanently house unwanted and stray farm animals. (DC-Farmrescue@yahoogroups list)
  2. Let your local animal control agency know if you have a pickup truck or trailer and are willing to help transport farm animals. Most animal control agencies rely on volunteers when it comes to larger animals as most do not have stables or paddocks to house them. [list of local animal control agencies]
  3. Donate to or volunteer at other farm animal sanctuaries
  4. If you know of a farm animal in need of a home, you can place a notice on the Farm Sanctuary’s web site bulletin board.
