PEAK fosters compassion and educates the public by rescuing and giving sanctuary to farmed animals. Our sanctuary gives visitors the unique opportunity to meat and connect with farmed animals as individuals, and offers a place where they can deepen their connection with people and nature.


According to PEAK co-funder Michelle Pruitt, "We have seen time and time again that, given the opportunity to experience the sentience of farmed animals, people ar changed. And those changes ripple out into the world."
