Our Mission
We're an approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing peace, protection and possibility to animals in need.
Helping animals, helping humans and making dreams come true one life at a time though rescue, sanctuary, adoption and education.

Progress continues on Tomten Farm and Sanctuary's exciting new barn.
Site excavation is just about done!
Crank it up! Music to our ears!


Meet our barn crew, see more photos and keep up with all the progress here and on Tomten's Facebook page.

And, as you can see, Tomten board member, craftswoman and New England fiber artist Laima has really outdone herself this year.
We're hoping your donation of $5 for one ticket or $20 for five tickets will help us keep up with our biggest winter expense, our hay deliveries.
More photos and details here.

Down and Dirty Work Days
If you have come to a Tomten Tour, you're eligible to become a Tomten volunteer! Weather permitting, every first and third Saturday
 we open our gates to those who want to make a commitment to really get involved providing peace,
protection and possibility to the animals you love.
More info here.

And so they travel, not to dealer, not to auction, but to Tomten Farm and Sanctuary.
Read how we teamed up with another New England Equine Rescue to offer not one, but TWO beauties
peace, protection and possibility—just in the nick of time. Meet them

Thanks to you, our Cow Initiative is MOOving Right Along.
We fundraised to rescue four cows, have saved six, and have adopted out three—so far!
We're not really trying to milk this but we want to remind you that
Gorgeous Greta GarMOO (previously #100), our rescued retired Jersey Girl,
is still available for adoption. Want to adopt but don't have a barn, pasture or time to take care of this gal?
No problem. In addition to our traditional adoption option, we also offer


Fundraiser #1 Hello Kitty
Opening Soon: The Black Cat Inn at Tomten Farm and Sanctuary.
We're ready to build a safe and fun outdoor play area for the meowsers. Can you help?

Fundraiser #2 Three Little Pigs
Really, can anyone have too many pigs? We would love to help two (maybe three?!!) baby piglets take a detour
from the usual auction to slaughterhouse route to instead live a much better life full of peace, protection and possibility.
But to do that, another pig shelter must be ordered. What do you think? More pigs?
Mabel Consuela and Diego Montoya oink a resounding "YES" and are standing by to process your donation.

Fundraiser #3 Hop to It!
Even domesticated rabbits like to run, hop, graze and explore. Our bunnies enjoy supervised outdoor activity, of course,
but a safe outdoor yard for them would greatly increase their fun and extend their out-of-the-hutch time.
If you agree, please respond quick like a bunny and
donate to this furry little fundraiser.

Helping us save animals in need is so rewarding.
 Supporting Tomten Farm and Sanctuary can be as simple as pledging to make a Monthly Donation from the comfort of your home
or as invigorating as getting down and dirty here at our
Volunteer Work Days. You can even help online by indulging in some "Shopping Therapy"!
 How? Just buy the things you were going to order anyway on
AmazonSmile. Simply sign up and name us as your charity choice.
After that, every time you go to AmazonSmile, Amazon will automatically donate 0.5% of ALL your purchases to Tomten.
Every little bit helps!
