Mission Statement

Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 charitable organization with a mission to educate the public about the mistreatment of animals in animal agriculture. Our shelter takes in farmed animals rescued from cases of abuse, neglect and abandonment. It is a place where children and adults can come face to face with the animals who most only know as “dinner” and learn about the devastating effects of modern-day agribusiness on the animals, the environment and human health.
