About Spring Farm Sanctuary

Spring Farm Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and one of the first farm animal sanctuaries in Minnesota.  We are committed to ending farm animal cruelty and promoting vegan living through our rescue, rehabilitation and education efforts.

Spring Farm Sanctuary was founded in 2016 by Robin Johnson. A lifelong vegetarian and now vegan, Robin has dedicated much of her life to advocate and care for animals and animal rights. Robin founded Save Minnesota Moose, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on protecting the moose population in MN. Additionally, she is an active volunteer at Underdog Rescue and Animal Folks and is a former board member of Pause for Paws.

Spring Farm Sanctuary rescues and provides a home for abused and neglected farm animals.  We seek to educate the local community to raise awareness of the horrible conditions animals face in industrial animal agriculture, as well as the dangerous effects animal agriculture has on our health and the environment. Through our events and tours we encourage the community to connect with our animals and realize how sensitive, emotional and caring they are. Also, we work with local and state governmental organizations and agencies to advocate for laws and policies that prevent animal suffering and promote the fair and compassionate treatment of animals.
