Nestled in vineyards in California’s San Joaquin Valley, Harvest Home’s two-acre rescue and rehabilitation sanctuary is home to 13 unique animal species. Their animal protection efforts are focused primarily on rabbits and birds, and they are an official sanctuary for House Rabbit Society, based in Richmond, CA. Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit and donations are tax-deductible.
The mission of Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary is to provide life-long care for rescued animals, and to educate the public about humane animal care and practices. Harvest Home rehabilitates, both physically and psychologically, mistreated animals and, if possible, find appropriate homes for them. In an effort to prevent further cruelty to these animals, they educate the public on caring for companion animals as well as on issues concerning farmed animals.
If you are interested in visiting the sanctuary, Harvest Home offers tours on selected dates throughout the year. Harvest Home is located in Stockton, California, only an hour and 30 minutes’ drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, or an hour and 15 minutes from Sacramento. Visiting the sanctuary is a relaxing, personal way to learn more about their amazing stories of animal rescue and rehabilitation. A nominal donation of $10 from each adult visitor for a tour is requested.
Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary welcomes volunteers year-round for a variety of activities and tasks. If you looking for a service opportunity for your class, club, scout troop, or church group, you can find the Sanctuary’s scheduled service days on the Harvest Home events calendar.
