You can help make a difference in the lives of our animal residents.

As a small nonprofit, we rely on donations and we are sincere when we say every dollar counts. And because we are volunteer-run, every single one of those dollars goes directly to the care of our animals. 


Thanks to a generous donor, we have the majority of funds in place to purchase a bumper-pull horse or stock trailer for the sanctuary. With our farm vet retiring and limited options for farm vets that will travel to us for goat, horse, and pig care, we need the ability to transport any of the residents where they need to go for proper vet care. This is a critical resource and so the hunt begins.

Our budget is around $5k and the trailer will need to come with a title. Looks don’t matter to us and rust is okay, so long as the structural integrity of the trailer isn’t compromised.

We are willing to travel to get the trailer, preferably within a day’s drive (there and back) from the Eastern panhandle of West Virginia.


Six Paws Farm Animal Sanctuary is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit farm animal sanctuary located in Berkeley Springs, WV, whose mission is to provide food, shelter, and vet care to animals in need, both large and small. We also promote the humane treatment of animals through education and advocacy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me with an animal that needs someplace to go?

We are committed to finding a safe place for animals in need. Please know we receive an overwhelming number of requests on a regular basis and cannot take direct action on behalf of every animal. If you're looking to surrender a rooster, please consider alternatives before deciding to do so. For more information about getting an animal placed, please click here

Can we visit?

We know there is a lot of interest from folks wanting to visit the sanctuary and we appreciate the interest in meeting and learning about our residents in person. For the past few years, we have been updating and building animal resident facilities to keep the animals safe, secure, and taken care of. That means a delay in setting up the property for safety & enjoyment considerations for a visiting public.
