Little Brook Farm, established in 1977, is one of the oldest and largest rescues in the northeast. They rescue and provide sanctuary to 60 horses and 70 cats (neutered/no cages), as well as 5 dogs, 2 sheep, a pig and a rooster. The rescued animals become accustomed to the life-long care we they committed to providing. Animals are never bred or sold, and they maintain a strict “must return if…” policy when adopted.
Through the generosity of 9 landowners and their own 55-acre farm, they have a total of 143 acres available for the horses. We receive no government funding. 100% of our donations directly contribute to the care and comfort of the animals.
Their mission is to advocate the humane treatment of all animals through rescue, sanctuary, and rehabilitation. In conjunction with educational, vocational, and therapeutic programs, they blend an innovative multi-faceted approach that links the need of the rescued animals with the specific needs of their students.
The horses are their "working partners." They provide a wide range of safety-conscious programs at their facility, as well as other locations, to over 80 schools, agencies and organizations. Their students’ success is achieved largely through the relationship with the horse; he is non-judgmental, provides immediate feedback and, as a subject, offers unlimited possibilities to grow mentally, physically and emotionally.
