Enjoy a celebratory afternoon on February 11, 2018 with rescued farm animals at Farm Sanctuary’s Southern California Shelter in Acton, CA, approximately 45 minutes from Hollywood. The sanctuary is home to more than 100 rescued cattle, pigs, goats, chickens, and other farm animals, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to honor the loving bonds these animals are free to form after rescue from cruelty, neglect, and other harmful situations. From power couple Bela sheep & Sofie goat (a pair who met at the sanctuary and have been inseparable ever since) to best pig pals Junip Sydney & Von D (who are thriving together after being rescued separately from meat-production fates), the power of love is plain to see at Farm Sanctuary. Join us for
- sanctuary time with the animals (many of whom love pets and belly rubs!);
- a presentation on the love stories of our rescued residents by Program Coordinator Breezy Rondilone;
- Valentine’s-themed refreshments;
- a photo booth;
- a children’s musical booth;
- special take-home valentines featuring one of our amazing animal pairs;
- a make-your-own valentine station; and
- access to our gift shop, featuring animal-friendly apparel, books, and more.
At Farm Sanctuary, we see every day how love changes animals’ lives, and we invite you to witness it firsthand during this fun and festive event!

BREEZY RONDILONE is one of the few people to have worked at all three Farm Sanctuary locations, starting as a tour guide at the New York Shelter five years ago, then working as our Education Coordinator at our Northern California Shelter before transitioning to a Program Coordinator position here in Acton. Breezy oversees the visitor and volunteer programs at the Southern California Shelter and coordinates a number of our annual sanctuary events, helping to introduce thousands of people to rescued farm animals. Breezy has years of experience educating the public about farm animal issues and feels fortunate to get to know farm animals in a way that most people do not.
Farm Sanctuary is a source of compassionate education and inspiration for thousands of individuals each year, and our volunteers are a crucial element of this work. We are currently seeking volunteers for our Valentine’s Day event, and we would love to have your help!
Volunteers are needed to assist with all aspects of the event: setup, parking, registration, food service, gate assistance, staffing barns, cleanup, and more.
For questions on volunteering or to sign up, please contact Breezy Rondilone.
