Farm Sanctuary announced this week that they will be integrating the Animal Acres’ southern California shelter, located in Acton, CA, into Farm Sanctuary existing national programs which includes shelters in Watkins Glen, NY and Orland, CA.

If you ever have an opportunity visit one of the Farm Sanctuary shelters, it is one of the most amazing experiences.  The new location is 7 hours away from Phoenix….in case you get an inkling to go.
