Sanctuary Spotlight: Sasha Farm

If you’re in the Detroit area of Michigan, check out SASHA Farm, a sanctuary for rescued ‘food animals’ and other critters.

SASHA Farm is the Midwest’s largest farm animal sanctuary and they provide the animals with basic care, medical treatment and housing, lots of love and social interaction with others of their own species, as well as a sense of security. The founders Dorothy Davies and Monte Jackson started rescuing animals about 20-years ago with a few dogs…the shelter is currently home to over 200 animals, each with its own story to tell.

Meet some of the animals of SASHA Farm…

What’s your favorite animal sanctuary?

    My favorite is Leilani Farm Sanctuary on Maui because of Laurelee. Come visit her and her animals and lovely farm and you will feel the same way for sure and so will Bear.

    My sister and her husband have visited Sasha regularly and included them in their estate. We learned of them years ago when “Jefferson” the steer broke through a slaughterhouse line and ran for his life through downtown Detroit. Jefferson lives safely now and enjoys the life he fought to save. :)

    I live in Maryland. I’m trying to find an animal sanctuary that I can bring my family to in order to introduce my 6 year old to the importance of service in our community. Does anyone know how I could find one?
