Michigan Humane Center for Farm Animal Care
The Abraham Ranch’s purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome farm animals brought in to Michigan Humane as rescues, strays or surrenders. The facility is situated on 110 acres and includes a brand new 14,000 square foot barn with enclosed animal stalls, riding arena, pastures, walking and riding trails, water habitats and more.
Michigan Humane currently houses and cares for over a hundred livestock and other domestic animals each year at less-than-ideal facilities, utilizing dog and cat cages for housing or creating accommodations to suit the needs of the animals. The demand for farm animal care is greater than the current facilities and team can accommodate and the need is expected to continue to grow. Animals that are anticipated to take up residence at the Abraham Ranch include chickens, ducks, pigs, goats and cows. The facility is designed using best-in-class animal care leveraging Michigan Humane’s veterinary team and partnerships for animal rehoming and placement.
Funding is needed to grow a dedicated, full-time farm team. Abraham Ranch will also serve as a training facility for veterinary students, cruelty investigators and animal control officers, and a gathering space for the community.
