Occasionally, farm animals in crisis come to Lily's Place for shelter and care while they recover from pain, injury, or distress. After recovery, if they don't require significant medical interventions and are safe to adopt out to the public, these wayward souls transition into a pre-screened & approved adoptive home with a family that will cherish and care for them for the rest of their lives.
Lily's Place is a small, volunteer-based, vegan-run animal sanctuary for farm animals. Our organization is a registered charity and funded thanks to the donations of generous and kind-hearted animal lovers.

Lily’s Place Animal Sanctuary began in Appin, Ontario, in the fall of 2019 with the adoption of 5 ex-battery hens from a local rescue initiative hosted by Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary.
That fall we also gave a home to Sid, a lamb who had broken his leg and had received medical care for approximately 6 months at Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary. Due to the break, and the leg that was compensating (requiring a brace), Sid needed a special home due to his mobility.
We also welcomed Betty, a pregnant sheep to the sanctuary that fall. She was one of the survivors from case of neglect, and after finding immediate shelter and medical care at Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue, Betty came to live at Lily's Place.
We received a certificate of recognition from PEACE Canada for participating & completing the Vegan Sanctuary & Compassion For All Pledge.
While we don’t currently have accommodations at the sanctuary for people to stay, The Vegan Stay is revolutionizing vegan travel by supporting sanctuaries 🐑.
When you book a stay at one of the destinations listed on The Vegan Stay platform, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to sanctuaries around the world. Our partnership with The Vegan Stay platform allows hosts (people with their accommodations listed on the platform) to pick Lily’s Place Animal Sanctuary as the sanctuary they’d like a donation to go to for each booking.
Even though we don’t have “a stay”, The Vegan Stay still opens up doors for support for the sanctuary, which is pretty awesome! Be sure to hop over to The Vegan Stay to learn more about their mission, get listed if you offer vegan accommodations, and maybe even book your next adventure!
