I have always had a special relationship with animals. As a child I would bring home lost dogs and injured birds constantly. It wasn't a surprise to anyone that I found my first job at a veterinary clinic. While working there in high school, my love and appreciation for animals - and the people who helped them - grew into a passion.
When I met Bryan in 2014, he had never had a pet! By the time we got married in 2016, we had 5 dogs and a cat. Moving to the country and starting a rescue farm and animal sanctuary soon became a dream for both of us. Turning this dream into a reality over the last few years has been a challenge, but we have loved every step. When we were finally able to bring animals to the farm and offer a safe place for these sweet souls to live and be loved, we knew we were beginning an exciting journey.
WHAT TYPES OF ANIMALS DO YOU HAVE FOR ADOPTION?
We take in many different types of livestock and equines, such as donkeys, horses, goats, sheep, and occasionally even chickens and kittens.
DO ANIMALS RECEIVE ANY VET CARE BEFORE ADOPTION?
Yes, all animals are fully vetted upon arriving at Fabled Farm. They will receive any needed vaccinations, deworming, gelding (if male), teeth, and hoof care prior to being available for adoption.
WHY DO YOU REQUIRE ANY FEMALE ANIMALS TO GO TO HOMES WITH ONLY OTHER FEMALES OR GELDED MALES?
Many of the animals that come through rescue have been used for breeding purposes for most of their lives already. We do include a NO BREEDING clause in our contract to insure that the animals adopted from Fabled Farm are no longer bred and contributing to overpopulation that lands many animals in rescue.
WHY DO YOU CHARGE AN ADOPTION FEE?
Our adoption fees help to cover some of the cost of the vetting and farrier care the animals receive upon arriving at the farm, as well as daily feed, supplements, tack, or any other needed supplies.
DO YOU ADOPT OUT OF STATE?
We are happy to work with adopters who live out of the area, but we do require adopters to travel to Christiana, TN to pick up the animal. We do not offer transporting services at this time.
WHY DO SOME ANIMALS STAY AS SANCTUARY ANIMALS?
Some of the animals that come through rescue need extensive medical care, training for behavioral issues, or are considered hospice cases. These animals remain as part of the Fabled Farm Sanctuary program and receive the specific needed care until they are adoptable, or they are deemed as sanctuary residents.
DO YOU ACCEPT DONATED SUPPLIES?
Yes! We are always in need of supplies for the animals and will happily schedule a time for gently used or new equipment, unopened bags of feed, minerals or supplements to be delivered to the farm.
DO YOU ACCEPT VOLUNTEERS?
We LOVE hardworking volunteers and rely on people who love animals to help us with grooming, daily care, and construction projects around the farm.
DO YOU OFFER INTERNSHIPS?
Yes!! Please contact us for more details...we can use you!
CAN WE TAKE A FARM TOUR?
We are working towards adding farm tours later in 2023. Check back!
HOW ARE YOU FUNDED?
The majority of our funding is through private donations and fundraisers held by Harmony Designs Photography throughout the year.
WHAT TYPE OF ANIMALS DO YOU PERSONALLY HAVE?
We have 4 dogs who were all adopted from Agape Animal Rescue,
a rescue kitty, and a horse named Ollie.
WHAT ANIMAL WOULD YOU LIKE TO ADD TO THE FARM?
We would like to add cows, but we need more land first!
WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE TEAM?
