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 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. We work with area shelters, rescues, and law-enforcement agencies to bring in animals who 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.
