Welcome to Penny Lane Farm Sanctuary
"Free to Just Be"
Penny Lane Farm Sanctuary is a registered Not-For-Profit Corporation. We provide sanctuary to horses and other animals who have suffered from neglect or abuse or loss of trust, or who are at risk of being sent to slaughter. Our primary goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, and provide a safe haven for life. Through community involvement and education, we aim to promote compassion and kindness to all animals. We employ only positive reward-based methods when interacting with the animals. Our philosophy is that they should be "free to just be." Each day we learn more as we explore the relationship between humans and non-humans in an environment that emphasizes mutual respect and appreciation.
Penny Lane Farm Sanctuary is a vegan facility
We welcome visitors during our Open Houses or on our special sanctuary tour days (next one is Aug. 5).
. Donations, sponsors, and volunteers help us keep the horses here at the Sanctuary healthy and happy. For more information please contact us through our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pennylanefarmsanctuary/ or by email at Pennylanesanctuary@gmail.com .
The Sanctuary is normally open to visitors only during our scheduled open house and tour day events (and occasionally by special arrangement). Please contact us for more information.
Please note that pets are strictly forbidden.
Many of the Sanctuary's animal residents react fearfully to the presence of strange dogs. Out of respect to them, please leave your dogs at home when visiting, volunteering, or attending one of our Open Houses. Thank you.

Tractor Fund Campaign
We currently do everything by hand, but as the sanctuary expands, we desperately need to invest in a second hand tractor. Currently the Tractor Fund Campaign has raised 25% of the amount needed. If you could donate $10 to the campaign it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Fall Celebration & Open House!
We also have new arrivals!
Come meet handsome Jimmy the Roo (who was found wandering city streets by the Montreal SPCA, and who now has found a safe haven in our brand new coop! And joining him (alongside our five beautiful Silkie rescues) are seven hens who were rescued a year ago from a factory farm (where we hear they at first were in terrible shape, typical of the effects of living in crowded intolerable egg production factory settings). They had been rehabilitated by a wonderful couple in Laval, Quebec, who asked if we could give them a permanent home. They came with Ozzie, a wonderful rooster who is bonded to Ginger, his companion hen. Pictures and their stories will be added to our Residents page shortly. We currently have 61 residents in the care of the Sanctuary.
Online Sponsorship Form now available!
Sponsoring one of our animals now couldn't be easier! In the form below simply tell us which resident you would like to sponsor. Tell us whether you would like to be a monthly (reoccurring) sponsor, or a one time sponsor. Add the amount you would like your sponsorship to be (sponsorships start at $10.00 per month and can be increased by $10 increments to whatever you would feel comfortable contributing towards the upkeep and care of the resident that you have chosen. If you would like to be a farm sponsor (instead of sponsoring a particular resident), that would be great too! Sponsorship amounts of $25 or more will receive an 8x10 picture of the resident being sponsored (or if you've chosen a general farm sponsorship, a picture of a resident of your choosing). All sponsors can also arrange a private visit to the farm at a convenient time. All sponsorships can be cancelled at any time. Thank you!
