“Join us in creating this incredible haven for future generations.”

- Founders Gabrielle & Peter


Our vision is a world that is compassionate toward all beings, especially the most vulnerable among us.

We founded Tamerlaine in 2013 on the idea that rescuing animals from industrial agriculture and introducing them to the public is one of the most powerful ways to create positive change for all animals and the world in which we live. We have been providing rehabilitation and exceptional care for abused, neglected, and otherwise discarded animals ever since. Our rescue efforts have grown organically to over 200 animal residents.

Tamerlaine Sanctuary originally sat on a 40-acre property, where only a portion of the space was useable for housing animals. Stunningly, an incredible property adjacent to our original sanctuary came onto the market, also known as the historic Westfall Farm, and thus began the next phase of our mission. This farm predates the Revolutionary War and was a stop on the Underground Railroad. We will honor this rich history of justice by making sure that each individual and unique animal who finds a home at Tamerlaine will be in our safe haven and receive the best care possible. The new 336 acre property is comprised of pristine and preserved farmland, equipped with beautifully maintained barns, stables, fenced in pastures, and hay fields.  

A charming colonial-era home overlooks the entire site. The central location of the property, which includes our main visitor areas and the homes of all of our animals, is enveloped in beautiful nature, forests, wetland, ponds and vast fields-- a natural preserve. The land has come to us as a perfect home for our rescued animals and with profound opportunities for conservation and wildlife protection.

Now, with this new site we are poised to offer unparalleled opportunities for our community with a unique hybrid focus on animal protection and conservation. We are embracing our expansion with all of our energy, passion, and determination. The number of lives, both human and non-human, that can be transformed, and the impact we can have for conservation in this new space will be profound.

With this new location, we will create a sanctuary that will provide a secure and lasting legacy for generations to come.
