Crowdfunding Campaign – Launching September 15th

The vision for Loveland Farm Sanctuary – a sanctuary in the making – is to become a safe haven in Orange County for rescued farm animals that have endured a life of cruelty and abuse. Once they achieve our fundraising goals, they’ll offer rescue and rehabilitation to their future residents, as well as educational opportunities on compassionate living to the public. Sign Up for Love is a fundraising project of Loveland Farm Sanctuary, offering handmade decorative signs with expressions of kindness and vegan-centric messages of love for all living beings, with 100% of the proceeds going towards this sanctuary.
