Creating a safe and peaceful refuge for horses and farmed animals in need.

Founded in 2018, the Sweet Sanctuary is built on kindness and compassion for all animals. We provide a permanent home to horses and farmed animals suffering injury, neglect, abuse, or abandonment. Located just outside of the Nation’s Capital in Mississippi Mills, Ontario, the sanctuary sits on 85 acres of safe haven. Including a magical pig forest, goat mountain, and sprawling pastures, the sanctuary is currently home to 34 animals and growing.

Founding Donors

In 2018 we launched a founding donor campaign, asking the public to pledge $25 or more to help us start the Sweet Sanctuary, and become a permanent part of our future. If you visit us in person, you’ll find a founding donor plaque listing all the donors, forever displayed on our little barn wall.
