Aimee's Farm Animal Sanctuary

Located in Gilbert, AZ, we rescue as many farm animals and horses from slaughter that we are able. We take in many in poor health, nurse them back and provide a safe haven for them to live their lives out. In some instances we will re home an animal to a forever family with a no slaughter/no breed contract, home inspection, references and back round check. We are a 501c3 non profit and rely solely on donations.

Freed Spirits Animal Rescue

We were inspired to open Freed Spirits Animal Rescue by Lek at the Elephant Nature Park (ENP) in Thailand. Lek dedicated herself completely to her mission in saving elephants from abuse and exploitation. She acted with and promoted kindness, understanding and tolerance, even in the face of the abusers. Lek taught us that animals suffer due to ignorance which anger could never combat. The majority of people do not know what elephants go through in order to “break their spirit” for entertainment, rides and labor work.

We went to the ENP for a week to volunteer and spend time with the elephants and what we learned was there is a great need in caring for animals after their “careers” have ended. We came home and realized the same animal needs exist here. It is our hope that the people who come to visit or volunteer to have a meaningful experience. Our goals and mission are to help animals, involve the community, and improve the quality of life for animals and humans.

The Backyard Barnyard Foundation

The Backyard Barnyard Foundation began in 2010 to help support a long time neighborhood farm that was home to rescued donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs and chickens. Little did we know that two years later we would actually become a sanctuary with a motley crew of rescued barnyard animals living in our backyard.
