Welcome to Austin Farm Sanctuary.
We're a 501(c)(3) Animal Rescue Farm and Organization in Austin, Texas!
We provide rescue, rehabilitation and a forever home to farmed animals.
Our Largest Rescue Ever
On October 19th the sanctuary received a call from an individual requesting help for 70+ chickens that have been abandoned on their property. We gathered a team, drove out to the location, and were horrified by what we found.
Everywhere we looked, we saw suffering. Over 35 hens and roosters were deceased and in various stages of decay. The remaining 70 were struggling to survive in filthy conditions without food and water. All of the chickens are severely underweight and dehydrated, and some are painfully injured. We are working to get the survivors out of this situation and back to the sanctuary as quickly as we can.
This is the largest intake in the history of Austin Farm Sanctuary, but we know that we can do this because of friends like you.
Meet Our Residents
The pig that started it al! Doya is 600 lbs. of love and sweetness! He's a big fan of belly rubs and loves affection.
Buddy is such a strong boy, taking blindness by the horns and not letting that hold him back. He is 100% a lap puppy and excitedly awaits snuggle time.
Dexter, aka "Mr. Fluff", loves taking dips in the pond and is all about affection... could he be any cuter?
We strive to create a world farmed animals are happy to call home. We work to build relationships between people and farm animals. Through this we hope to encourage mindfulness and shift the way society perceives and values these amazing creatures.
Tour the Sanctuary
A large part of our mission at Austin Farm Sanctuary is building positive relationships between people and farmed animals. We are grateful to get to share their stories and would love for you to meet them.
We offer private in-person tours as well as virtual tours where you get to meet the animal residents, hear their history and learn fun/unique facts about them and other farm animals.
We believe all animals are worthy
of love and respect.
The sanctuary is home to over 200 animals of 8 different species.
Our animal residents eat over 800 lbs. of hay/feed every single day!
We've been building the sanctuary
for 6 amazing years.
