Uncle Neil’s Home

Uncle Neil’s Home

Name and location:

We are “Uncle Neil’s Home, A Farm Sanctuary”, named in honor of our rescued dog, Uncle Neil. We are located in Bridgeton, New Jersey.

What animals do you have in your sanctuary?

We have cows, goats, chickens, ducks, and turkeys at our sanctuary.

How did you get started with your sanctuary? What led/inspired you to open one?

Many years ago, we began our rescue journey with dog rescue, until quickly realizing that being a voice for the voiceless does not only apply to the animals that we consider family and welcome into our homes, but to all living beings. When we rescued our dog, Uncle Neil, in 2018, he was in very rough shape and it took us months to nurse him back to health. During that trying time, it was impossible not to think about the countless other animals who needed our love and protection, just as much as Uncle Neil did. He inspired us to take the unconditional love that we have for him and spread it to other animals in need.  We were already vegan and abstained from using animal products in any way, but we wanted to do more. We decided that we would purchase a farm and turn it into a safe haven for rescued farmed animals. We named our sanctuary Uncle Neil’s Home and began our mission to give rescued farmed animals a lifelong home, while educating about animal agriculture and animal rights, and advocating for a compassionate, cruelty-free, vegan lifestyle.

What is your dream for animals?

Our dream for animals is a world that rejects speciesism, where all animals are free from suffering and exploitation and treated with the love, respect, and kindness that they deserve.
