Goatlandia Farm animal Sanctuary

 
Deb, Founder of Goatlandia, with Mia the Goat. 

Goatlandia is an animal sanctuary that rescues farm animals and educates the public about the choice for a compassionate lifestyle. In addition to providing a safe and loving forever home to our own feathered and furry family, we also place our rescued animal friends into other loving homes through our adoption program. We do all kind of events both here at the sanctuary and out in the community.

We try to be as eco-minded as possible: we gather and reuse rain water and grey water, generate solar power, compost our own scraps for use in the garden, grow some treats for our family, and try to help encourage others to do the same.

Goatlandia is a place for people to experience compassion, have fun and do cool things together. Find out more about what we do.

Saving Animals With A Plant-Based Lifestyle

 

Almost everyone loves animals, and most people don’t want to see animals suffer, be harmed, or be killed. But sadly, in the U.S. alone, over 9 BILLION (yup, that’s correct), land animals only (not counting any sea animals) are killed each year for food. That’s a lot! Include sea animals and that number becomes frighteningly large… Bottom line? Each year, more than 150 billion animals are killed for food.

The good news it that be being vegetarian or vegan, you can save a lot of animals’ lives.  By not eating animals, you reduce the demand for meat and fish.  It’s estimated that a vegetarian can save 25 land animals per year, and a vegan close to 200! Those numbers grow even larger when you leave sea animals off your plate. Many sea animals are unintentionally caught and discarded (referred to as ‘bycatch”).

And, not only is eating veg good for the animals, it’s better for the planet, the environment, and our health!
