Chatham Animal Haven

A farm animal sanctuary




  We recently lost our good friend Mike Baker. He was just a really. good. guy.  and he is going to be so missed.  From his love of music and ROCKY HORROR , to his random questions "Quick what's your favorite...."  and karaoke- he was a true legend in our little village. RIP Mike and thanks for all your help!   Please view Mike's obituary here:  Link

Winter 2018

We hope everyone is staying warm on these cold COLD days recently. All the animals are snug as bugs in a rug so no worries there. The pigs are sleeping. A LOT. The goaties don't seem to mind the cold weather as much and still commiserate with each other across the fence.  We are all looking forward to Spring with warmer temps, grass and dips in the pools!

We have added SPONSORSHIP options for those who would like to sponsor one of our residents. Please look on this page for that button! If you would like to know more about each of them, please click on their page. Please note that some pages are still being constructed!
