Who are we?
Dominion Sanctuary is a family run 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal sanctuary located in Sparta, Michigan. We focus on pigs and chickens. Tours and visits are available by appointment, we’d love to have you! We operate solely on donations and no one takes payment in any form. We are founded on vegan principles.
Who are we NOT? We’re not a petting zoo, a shelter that adopts out, and we don’t have open hours to the public. More explanation: petting zoos are a form of exploitation. At our sanctuary, the animals are never bred, forced to engage with guests, nothing about them or their choices is used for our entertainment or gain. The chickens don’t lay eggs here either; they receive a necessary medical treatment to give their reproductive system a much needed and break. Lastly, we choose not to have public open hours for the safety and privacy of all the residents here, human and non-human. We have many events and scheduled tour dates. Interested in visiting but none of the scheduled dates work for you? We’d absolutely love to find another date that works! Contact us through this website or email dominionsanctuaryMI@gmail.com.
If you’re consider donating, we appreciate that very much! Please see our support page.
