Jack Benny, a handsome pig, was found running through a bean field in Story City, Iowa. Then there are Frankie, Raisin and Martha, Toggenburg goats, from northern Minnesota. The group joins other rescued animals at Spring Farm Sanctuary, one of the first farm animal sanctuaries in the state.
Committed to ending farm animal cruelty and promoting vegan living since 2016, the sanctuary utilizes rescue operations, rehabilitation of the animals and education of the public to meet its mission.
Tours are available, and tickets ($10 for adults and $5 for children) can be purchased online. Note: Depending on where the animals are located during the tour, attendees may or may not be able to view them. The program also includes information about conditions animals face in industrial animal agriculture and its effects on public health and the environment.
