Located on 55 acres in Oregon's beautiful Applegate valley, Sanctuary One was established in 2007 as the nation's first care farm. It was founded by a small group of visionaries who, despite all the naysayers, never wavered in their belief in the Sanctuary’s mission: to be a safe place for animals and a healing place for people while promoting environmental stewardship.
Sanctuary One provides a safe home to rescued farm animals and house pets. Elderly, disabled, chronically ill, and emotionally traumatized animals who may never be adoptable receive personalized attention, loving rehabilitation, and a peaceful retirement here. The farm includes expansive gardens which not only provide rich vegetables and food for the animals, but opportunities for growth of the people who tend them.
