Project: THRIVE logo

Project: THRIVE is a small animal sanctuary where neglected, abused and abandoned farm animals offer children with the same history to come to heal, learn and thrive by developing caring relationships with the animals. We also invite school classes to spend time with our animals who nurture the children’s innate compassion, kindness and cooperation.

Project: THRIVE is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.

We strive to promote Awareness, Education and Compassion in Action.


Vision and Mission

Project: THRIVE is committed to rescuing and caring for farm animals who need a place to call home for any number of reasons. We believe that it is our responsibility to treat all others, including all animals, with respect and compassion. There is a powerful and unique bond between humans and animals that we greatly benefit from experiencing, and at Project: Thrive we work to foster and honor this bond through our events and outreach. Project: Thrive provides all necessary care and enrichment for our animals and we strive to teach others to do the same.

Project: THRIVE strives to promote compassion, kindness and positive advocacy for our world and all the living beings that inhabit our shared planet.  We carry out our mission through education, positive interaction and informed advocacy. Our hope is to see our world community become a kinder place through compassionate cooperation.

Project: THRIVE hopes to teach children, their families and our shared communities about animal and environmental welfare and how to enrich the Human-Animal Bond. Our camps and groups introduce the participants to ways in which they, themselves, can create a kinder environment for all animals starting with their own companion animals. We feel this interaction centered around compassion will naturally extend to our human companions and the environment in which we all share.

Project: THRIVE does this through creating programs specifically designed for our Kindness Camps and Experiential Learning Groups for schools, scouts, shelters, camps, libraries and at our barn and mini sanctuary.

These programs are interactive and include our rescued animals in the presentations. The participants get to develop relationships with the animals while sharing time and learning experiences with them.
