Spring Farm Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and the first farm animal sanctuary in Minnesota. We were founded in 2016 by Robin Johnson, a lifelong vegetarian and now vegan. Robin has dedicated much of her life to advocate for animal rights, and to care for animals. The Lucky Ones by Woodstock Farm Sanctuary founder Jenny Brown opened her eyes even wider and inspired her to open a sanctuary in Minnesota with the mission of providing a home for abused and neglected farm animals. We also educate others by raising awareness of the horrible conditions animals face in agricultural farms, as well as the dangerous effects those farms have on our health and the environment. Through our tours and events, the community is able to connect with our animals and see for themselves how sensitive, emotional, and loving they are. Animals used in agriculture are really no different than the dog or cat you have at home. We also work with local and state governmental organizations and agencies to advocate for laws and policies that prevent animal suffering and promote the fair and compassionate treatment of animals.





Libby our loving pig was one of the first animals to join us at Spring Farm Sanctuary. She is inquisitive and kind, greeting returning volunteers and new guests alike as they enter the barn. She loves attention, and often asks for belly rubs. She is also energetic and adventurous; it isn’t uncommon to see her running through the fields and exploring on a beautiful day, even at her size. We love her so much, and we can’t imagine Spring Farm without her. Unfortunately, in August of 2017, we almost had to.

When we first brought Libby home, she wasn’t in good shape. She had been living with a backyard butcher who kept her in filth with no food or water, which made her thin and weak. She also had prod marks all over her face and body and a high fever due to a bacterial infection. It was obvious that he had been abusing her, and we immediately got her veterinary care, including antibiotics and pain relievers.





Even with veterinary care for the first time, things weren’t easy for Libby. Her fever persisted and although she loved walking through the fields and being outside, she was often lethargic. Then in early August, Libby suddenly became severely ill. She was unable to stand up, unresponsive, and even had seizures. When the vet came to help her, he said that it was already too late. He headed to his truck to get his euthanasia kit, but told us she would be gone by the time he got back. He was wrong. Call it what you will... a divine intervention? A miracle? Regardless, it was nothing short of a powerful experience; Robin talked to Libby and begged her to find the strength to get up and get into the trailer so we could bring her to the hospital. She did. We rushed her to the University of Minnesota Veterinary Hospital where she underwent a major and life-threatening surgery that removed her uterus along with 42 liters (over 100 pounds) of pus-filled fluid. The veterinarians told us that she was probably not going to make it and kept coming out of the surgery to ask us if they should continue. The surgery was expensive, but we know we had to do right by Libby regardless. They gave her a 5% chance of survival. But we had faith, and Libby continued to surprise everyone. Even the Vets said it was a miracle that she survived.



After nearly a week of observation post-surgery, Libby was finally able to return to the sanctuary. She was a lot lighter, but also healthier and happier than she has ever been. You can see her joy in everything she does, from afternoon naps in fresh straw to playing with her best friend Annabelle. She is happy to be alive, and every time we see her we know she has a soul, and a will to live. She is what Spring Farm Sanctuary is all about!

Here's where you come in!
It takes a team of amazing volunteers, donations, and contributions to continue our mission. It is very costly and a lot of hard work to save more animals and operate a sanctuary, so we need your help and support! By donating just $1.00 a month, you become a part of this growing movement to stop the exploitation of animals. Together we can push towards ending farm animal cruelty and promote compassionate living.

Thank you so much for your compassion and support!
Goals
75 of 100 patrons
Join our growing community of supporters working to make the world a better place for farm animals! Our current goal is to reach 100 patrons, which would help to cover our hay, straw, and food costs each month. Having these costs covered will not only provide necessary food and care for our rescued animals - it will allow us to focus more resources on our outreach and advocacy efforts. Join our cause for just $1.00 a month! Our animals thank you!!!
