Farmshire Animal Sanctuary

Compassion… we’re all about it.

Farmshire Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit animal rescue in Clyde, NC. We rescue abused, abandoned or unwanted farm animals. 

We are committed to changing the system that made their rescue needed through education and outreach. 


Farmshire Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue in Clyde, NC. Our mission is to rescue abused and abandoned farmed animals and to work to improve the system that made their rescue necessary in the first place through education, outreach, and activism. The picturesque farm that the animals call home is situated in the Appalachian mountains with residents including pigs, chickens, llamas, a turkey, and a rabbit.

In addition to taking on life long sanctuary residents, Farmshire helps with transport and placement assistance to animals displaced through hurricanes, hoarding situations, factory farms, and cruelty cases.

By the summer of 2019, our farmhouse will be turned into the Asheville area’s first vegan Airbnb! Our 16 acre property currently operates 50% off the grid by solar power and spring water, with hopes of going 100% off the grid in the future. This year we opened for weekly tours and volunteer groups and we plan on tabling at many festivals throughout the summer.
