Non profit sanctuary for rescued farm animals. “If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others… why wouldn’t we?”
Edgar’s Mission is a not-for-profit Farm Sanctuary for rescued farm animals that seeks to create a humane and just world for humans and non-humans. Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary is set on 153 peaceable acres situated just outside of Lancefield, nestled in the tranquillity of the Macedon Ranges.
Why do farmed animals need rescuing?
Few Australians are aware that the vast majority of animals in human care in this country – some 500 million ‘food’ or ‘production’ animals – have been excluded from the protection of our animal welfare legislation.
In particular, millions of farmed animals daily endure lives of abject misery in factory farms. Barely able to move, they endure acts of cruelty that would be illegal if they were your cat or dog. Imagine a life without sunshine, without freedom, without being able to socialise, without hope … Welcome to the ‘life’ of a factory-farmed animal.
How has this happened? As custodians of this planet, we have been guilty of playing favourites. We have designated some animals friends and some animals food. Yet they are no different. All share the same ability to suffer, the same need and desire to experience life, for it to have joy, meaning and purpose.
As a result, Edgar’s Mission provides you with the opportunity to meet these animals, read their stories and decide which life they need and deserve.
- To provide shelter and direct care for homeless, abused, injured or abandoned animals.
- To find permanent homes for mistreated and abandoned animals and to promote adoption through education and example.
- To promote compassion, understanding and respect for all animals. To promote responsible and humane treatment towards animals in our community through the provision of advice, education and information.
Edgar’s Mission provides you with a glimpse into a different world – a merciful world. You can do your part and SPONSOR AN ANIMAL HERE.
