Dedicated to saving the lives of

at-risk animals

our mission

We collaborate, communicate, and educate about the importance of animal rescue and welfare, as well as conservation. We strive for a world where every animal has a safe and loving forever home. John’s Pass Rescue & Farm has a No Kill Stance.


John’s Pass Rescue Inc. was founded on the idea of helping animals in need. Since our organization was established in 2019, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.

Life changes for all of us and you never know if you may find yourself in a position where you need to place your animal or pet. If so, it does not necessarily mean you never should have gotten it or that you didn’t love it. The same as with domestic animals, the reasons vary. It simply means something in your life changed. We do not advocate obtaining animals without a great deal of thought and research. Nor do we encourage people to easily obtain the animal and then dump it. However, we do understand unforeseen circumstances.

If you or someone you know has a wild or exotic animal that needs to be rehomed for whatever reason, please call us for assistance (727) 329-8751.

About Our Farm

We provide a home and safe shelter for unwanted farm animals. It is a compassionate environment where the animals are respected and can live a life free of fear. We adopt animals that have been surrendered by their owners or animals that have been abandoned and are found by concerned individuals or by other animal rescue organizations. We also provide educational tours of the sanctuary so people can interact with the animals. We believe a large part of changing people’s attitudes towards farm animals lies in education through interaction. Very few people have had the opportunity to connect with the animals they find on their dinner plates.

The animals that have come to live here and the animals we have rehomed are living vibrant healthy lives. They are secure and unafraid. This is great for the animal, great for the person who was unable to keep their pet and through farm tours these animals teach people to respect livestock as you would any other living creature.

We offer sanctuary to chickens, turkeys, pigs, goats, rabbits, tortoises and other livestock. Although we would love to take in all the creatures that need our space is limited. If you have questions about raising livestock, building animal enclosures or even what kind of animal will fit your lifestyle please contact us via email
