Southern Florida Farmed Animal Transition

When she went from farm life to a free life, her heart was thrilled, delighted, and full of joy!

I was fortunate to have experienced an idyllic childhood compared to many children. The cow jumping over the moon brings memories of nursery rhymes, warmth, and love.

We believe farmed animals also deserve a great life

Please help support our organization by donating to our cause.

Our mission is to raise funds to buy land, and where possible whole farms and their animals from those wishing to transition out of this business as times change. We wish to provide sanctuary to the animals in this system, largely cows, so that they may live out the remainder of their lives without having to go to slaughter. We believe the animals deserve this. Some farms in this area have been family-owned operations for generations, and we don’t wish to disparage in any way the heritage and hard work of these farmers and business owners and their families. But because these animals have great worth as individuals, not just as commodities, we want to provide them safe haven.

How advocating for farmed animals and becoming vegan became the focus of my life.

My Story

As the founder of Southern Florida Farmed Animal Transition, Inc. I would like to share with you how advocating for farmed animals and turning vegan became the focus of my life. It involves an epiphany-a transformational event that changed my life. But first, let me relate a childhood memory that came back to me recently.

I’ve always loved animals since I was a little kid, and like lots of people, my family had various dog and cat family members over the years. I started riding horses when I was 5 after begging my parents for lessons. I was about 8 years old one afternoon, at the stable in Williamstown, Ma., and I had my horse, Freddy.

At lunch, I would visit a group of cows that were in a pasture next to the stable. The cows were comforting to be around, and I would sit there and eat my sandwich or whatever my mother had packed for lunch. I wondered why people didn’t pet the cows and brushed them like they do with horses. One day I went to the pasture and the cows had disappeared…

I’d love to share with you the rest of the story

A Real Cow can live to be 25 years old. These dairy cows are young, but they have known so much physical and emotional trauma in their short life that it will take time for them to find their playful spirit. Please help them to give them that time.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.


The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man

We are looking for people who would like to donate portions of their land as a gift to the animals.


We gather funding from generous, compassionate donors in an environment of honesty and integrity. We believe that through love and empathy, we can empower and transform the lives of animals, humanity and the planet.
