Thinking of Going Vegan? Great — we can help! Living vegan is the number-one way to help animals, heal the planet, and improve your health. By becoming vegan, you’ll be doing your part to spare the horrendous suffering of animals who want their lives as much as we want ours. With this single life-affirming choice, you’ll also dramatically lessen your ecological footprint and better your health. Truly, the whole world benefits when you align your lifestyle with the values of kindness, mercy and compassion. Let us help you get there!

Say Hello To Our Animal Family

At the Sanctuary we’re blessed to know chatty chickens and affectionate cows, old blind horses and sassy ducks, soulful sheep and ‘lap’ turkeys — as well as most people know their dogs, kids, or best friends.

Why Vegan?

Whether you want to prevent suffering, get healthy, or lessen your ecological footprint, adopting a vegan lifestyle is the best way to do all three — and we can help.

Vegan Eating is a Snap

More and more people are going vegan every day. In fact, The Economist dubbed 2019 “The Year of the Vegan.” If you think vegan eating is boring, tasteless, expensive or difficult, we’ll change your mind if you let us!

There’s More to Living Vegan than Eating Animal Free

Whether an animal is used for research, clothes, accessories or entertainment, the consequences are the same: confinement, pain, suffering, and terror. Every dollar you choose to spend on a vegan product is a vote for the kind of world you want to live in. Fortunately, there are animal-free options to meet all your needs!

Vegan Living is Easy, with the Right Support

From learning what to cook and where to eat to what to wear and how to talk with uninformed friends and family, going and staying vegan can be overwhelming. However, with someone by your side, transitioning to a vegan lifestyle can be fun, seamless and life changing. That’s why we created the New Leaf Vegan Mentor Program. Our free program will connect you with a trained mentor for one-on-one individualized support, no matter where you live, to help you reach and maintain your goal. They’ll answer your questions, share information and resources, discuss challenges and celebrate your successes.
