First Pigs & Kids

Our first event was amazing- Pigs & Kids was a hit. An incredible team of volunteers taught 26 kids & 14 adults about the pigs, nature, landfills & compost, plant based nutrition, had fun with crafts & cupcakes and shared a delicious meal! Check out the photos in this blog post & visit our donate page to support our animal care, barn raising and community events!

Outreach

Dominion Sanctuary's outreach is focused on children and families. The first residents of the sanctuary have been quite personable and have already helped many individuals come to new realizations about "farm animals." As a homeschool family of 6, Allie & her family have a lot of experience teaching and connecting in meaningful ways, and that has carried into their outreach work. Please consider helping support this important work focusing on children on our donate page. Sustainable choices and compassionate living matter for our future.

FAQ

How can I visit?

Small group and private "meet the pigs & chickens" tours are available for donors and fellow sanctuary workers, by appointment. We will open up for larger, ticketed events 4-6x per year, weather (and mosquitos) permitting. Be sure you're following along on Facebook & Instagram, and sign up for our newsletter- all the links are at the bottom of this page.

How can I get more details and stories?

If you're interested in the details of what's going on with us, please become a patron on our Patreon website. We share things first there, and we share far more details there than anywhere else, ever. Patreon support starts at $5 per month and is our most consistent source of reliable financial support. Thank you for considering it!

What's next for Dominion Sanctuary?

In early 2018, Allie & her family moved from Ada to their current location in Sparta so that they could start an animal sanctuary. Now that that dream has become a reality, it's time to fund raise for a barn so that more animals can be cared for, and more seeds of compassion can be planted by the amazing residents at Dominion Sanctuary! We are relying on our community's support. We are actively pursuing many options to barn raise; until we have a bigger barn, no more animals can be brought in. Please help us fund raise for the barn on the donate page!

Do you sell merchandise?

Yes, all of the merchandise on this website benefits the animals at our sanctuary. No one takes any salary or wages at all, all donations and sales of shirts, mugs, decals, hats- it all helps the animals. All of the designs were either donated by other talented artists or created by us. We sold tee shirts for about a year before we had our sanctuary, and at that time, we donated the proceeds to other animal rescues & sanctuaries. Our focus with the shirts has always been compassion for all.
