All of the animals at the Selah Carefarm are rescued from varying levels of abuse, neglect and torture. They are now well loved and treated with great compassion and care at all times. If you would like to “Support a Selah Animal” — which includes our beloved horses, donkeys, alpacas, sheep, goats, pigs, dogs and cats — please take a moment to read their meaningful stories and learn more about their special characters.
Our Carefarm Animals
All of our animals at Selah Carefarm have been rescued from varying levels of neglect, abuse, and torture. They are all quite well loved – and fed – now! We use an egalitarian approach with our animals: They are able to choose interaction with a grieving person visiting us. We never force the animal to engage; when they do so, they do it willingly. It’s a magical moment to connect with an animal who has known suffering and trauma, grief and fear, and then connection and compassion. All of the broken hearts who visit Selah Carefarm have an opportunity to seed a relationship with an animal who has known what it is to feel lonely, scared, confused, and sometimes to be traumatized.
You can choose to “Adopt a Selah Animal” (one year). Here are their brief stories – just click each animal’s image or name to learn more about them (there may be some sensitive content) or to help support any animal.
Symbolically adopting a Selah Carefarm rescue animal helps to pay for the food and specialized care we offer all of the animals at the farm. Each animal has unique needs based on their past history of abuse and trauma, and your support will help us ensure none of our animals ever feel hungry, neglected, or in pain again. Thank you so much for helping to sponsor these incredible beings.
