Creating a World of Compassion
FAR rescues abused, injured, sick, abandoned and unwanted animals from factory farms, saleyards, slaughterhouses, shelters and veterinary clinics. Rescues can be heart-breaking, rewarding, tiring and inspiring. It doesn’t take long, when you spend time with farm animals, to realise that they are sensitive, bright and fun-loving creatures who value their lives, fear the same things we do, and mourn the loss of their loved ones.
Despite what the animal agriculture industry claims, their industry relies on the removal of children from mothers, breeding programs that make animals grow faster but make life unsustainable, cruel confinement and medical procedures that occur without anaesthetic, and severely reduced life spans for all animals including egg laying chickens and dairy cows and goats.

Help Us Provide Them With the Basics!
We nurture rescued animals back to health with world class care, compassion, patience and dedication. Each animal has a personality, a story and a life she or he dearly wants to live. And our farm at Dayboro, Queensland provides tailored care for each animal as well a safe, secure and free-roaming sanctuary. For those that do not survive after rescue, we give them the dignity and comfort that they deserve with gentle affection and palliative care.
Changing Hearts and Minds
We provide rescued farmed animals with freedom, respect, dignity and care. We share the amazing real-life stories of animals that have been bred as commodities and genetically modified for human consumption. Importantly, we invite people into the farm via our regular Open Days where you can meet these beautiful animals and experience first-hand the unique and adorable personalities of each. Surprisingly, the very same animals that have been objectified, abused, dumped and treated cruelly are for the most part kind, playful and trusting. Being around them is truly life-changing.
