ARC at Poplar Springs by christine

On Saturday, May 15th the ARC joined CfA for a tour of Poplar Springs Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville, MD. Poplar Springs is a non-profit sanctuary for rescued farm animals and wildlife. Their mission is to:

  • Offer care, rehabilitation, and permanent sanctuary for neglected, abandoned or unwanted farm animals
  • Provide protected habitat for wildlife
  • Furnish information to the public regarding farm animal and wildlife issues
  • Promote compassion and humane treatment for all animals

The exquisite 400-acre property is home to rescued pigs, cows, goats, chickens, turkeys, peacocks, horses, sheep, rabbits, geese and ducks. Terry and Dave do an amazing job caring and advocating for these animals. We heard some amazing survivor stories that testified to both the strength and forgiveness of these creatures, it is amazing how they can learn to trust and love humans again. They reminded us to live compassionately and reaffirmed why a society based on animal exploitation is so wrong. To learn more about the animals and their rescue stories, click here.
