Asher’s Farm Sanctuary

Asher’s Farm Sanctuary is located in Pretoria East, South Africa. It is currently the only registered farm animal sanctuary in Gauteng. The sanctuary provides a safe haven for rescued farm animals, where they can live out their days peacefully and experience compassion and respect from the humans that they share their new home with.

We visited some of the sanctuary residents and spoke to Mikayla about their plans for the future.

Asher’s aims to raise awareness about the industries that profit from the exploitation of animals, as well as the effects that factory farming has on the environment. They hope to inspire visitors to connect with the animals and see them for who they are – feeling, social individuals deserving of the most basic right to life and freedom from cruelty.
