2023 Was
All About The Animals


Another year is nearly in the books! 2023 (our 16th year) was full of hard work and challenges that required creative solutions. We rescued 38 new animals (and the year isn't over), completed 2 new construction projects, and welcomed dozens of new volunteers and student interns.

Everything we do is for the animals who have persevered through cruelty, abuse, and neglect situations. We draw our inspiration from them and as the year comes to a close, we hope you will be inspired to support our mission, our animals, and our daily work with a year-end tax-deductible donation.

Matching Gift Challenge
Limited Time Only

All donations through December 31 will be matched dollar for dollar,

Help us stuff the stocking with the resources needed to provide 365 days of care to nearly 100 farm animal rescues!


Check back to see the progress of our year-end "farm"raiser and watch the stocking fill up.

A surprise matching gift challenge has been issued by a group of generous supporters. In honor of West Place's 16 years of rescuing farm animals from cruelty and neglect, all donations up will be matched dollar for dollar up to $16,000!

Every dollar donated by you and other members of our compassionate community will be matched. We need $16,000 in new donations before December 31 to unlock the full $16,000 in matching funds. Together, we can meet the challenge and make sure no money is left on the table.

Thank you to matching gift donors Sakonnet Associates; Barbara C.; Medsource, Inc.; Dinny and Amy; and Dr. and Mrs. Bishop; and to everyone who supports West Place Animal Sanctuary.

Saved from slaughter at 6 weeks old, Collins is the the third calf rescued by West Place in 12 months. He joins big brothers Jensen and Jared.

Pickles & Bentley

The number of pigs at West Place doubled with with additions of Pickles in the spring and Bentley in the fall.

New Construction

After nearly 10 years without new construction, West Place added on to the barn and created a new Chicken House to safely rescue birds once again.


Neglected and emaciated, Amber joined the farm family in August and has never looked back. Watch as she meets the herd for the first time.

Educational Internships

West Place welcomed a record number of high school and college students into the Educational Internship programs in 2023.


Our commitment to every rescue animal is a lifetime of care and love, including end-of-life care. In 2023 we said goodbye to our sweet Maggie.

Tiny Turtle Rescue

West Place helped Providence Animal Control by taking 7 tiny turtles from an eviction case, doubling the number of rescue turtles living in the pond.

Pond Cleanup

After the avian flu tragedy, extensive work was done to the pond. It wasn't always pretty, but necessary for the safety of animals above & below the surface.

Thank you in advance for your support.


We can't do it without you!
