Welcome to Penny Lane Farm Sanctuary

"Free to Just Be"

We are a registered Not-For-Profit organization, located near Saint-Pascal-Baylon, Ontario, east of Ottawa.  We provide a safe haven for life for animals who are at risk or who have only known abuse and neglect before being brought to us. The Sanctuary is a vegan-run facility though we do not require that anyone be vegan in order to volunteer or visit.

We encourage individuals from all walks of life who are interested in helping us care for our residents to come out and volunteer. Consider establishing a personal connection with one of our resident animals by becoming a sponsor.

You can now donate through Paypal using your credit card.  Thank you for your support!  Donations of any amount help us continue to provide a safe haven here at the Sanctuary. Every cent of every donation goes 100% towards care of the animals, without exception. Paypal is a secure way to donate. You will not be charged any fees. You can also donate by using an e-transfer.


Note: The Sanctuary is not open to the public on a daily basis.

We do not currently have any Visitor Days scheduled in May or June as Spring is a busy time at the farm and the animals here need to be able to enjoy quiet, undisturbed time while we complete various projects at the farm.

Our next open house is our Summer Celebration on July 13th (see New Events) where we will have venders, and live music as well. It is a fun family oriented event.

We welcome people here to interact with the animals for educational purposes and to teach compassion for all farm animals, but our animals are not on display or used for any other purpose (we are not like a petting zoo, this is their home).

Thank you for understanding.


Our Wish List has been updated!


Special Project Work Groups

Shortly we will have a work day/potluck to both help clean up the horse paddocks (bring your shovel and we will supply the exercise!) and to also install soft flooring in Molly and Lucy’s stall (our little mule and pony), to help make them more comfortable given their hoof conditions.


A big thank you to the Algonquin College student group who came to volunteer at the Sanctuary Thursday morning, March 28!! Your help made a difference here!


By the way, if you live in the Clarence-Rockland area, you may be interested to know that the Sanctuary has its own Weather Station that updates local weather conditions online continuously (useful too if you are coming out to the Sanctuary
