About Poplar Springs:
"Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary is a 400 acre non-profit refuge in Poolesville, Maryland for farm animals and wildlife. Founded in 1996, our mission is to offer care, rehabilitation, and permanent sanctuary for neglected, abused or abandoned farm animals, as well as providing a protected habitat for wildlife. We promote compassion and the humane treatment of all animals by educating the public on farm animal and wildlife issues.
The restored colonial-era farmhouse situated on the property houses the operations of the sanctuary. Overlooking the Potomac River, and surrounded by ponds, streams, and open fields of preserved natural habitat, the sanctuary provides an idyllic setting for wildlife and farm animals.
Through generous public donations, and the dedication of over 100 volunteers and 7 paid staff members, we’ve been able to not only maintain the farm and it’s acreage, but also build new barns and fences to house our growing animal family. From Petunia the pig, our first rescue, to the over 200 animals currently living at the sanctuary – your donations and support ensure their continued happiness and comfort."
