New Dawn MT Farm Sanctuary is Montana's 501.(c).3 sanctuary for food farmed animals to find a safe, life-long home. This sanctuary promotes compassion for all life, all beings and promotes values to make kindness and compassion increase in society towards all life, with specific focus on food-farmed animals. As such missions of the sanctuary are first and foremost: safe and life-long sanctuary haven for each animal that becomes a resident ambassador of the sanctuary. In addition to providing appropriate feed, housing, land to roam and veterinary care for each species here, the sanctuary is a resource of education about the impacts of animal agribusiness and impact upon the farm animals, human health and the planet. Our sanctuary is full at this time. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept new placements of pigs, cattle and goats. Under the umbrella of the sanctuary, The Western Montana Vegetarian Society provides plant-based feed-in, potlucks for the public, 5 per year. (Please see further information about the Veg Society vegan potlucks at this website.)

What are "food farmed" animals you may ask? These are the animals eaten and used for animal-based products in the westernized Standard American Diet (SAD-diet). This includes species of : cattle, pigs, poultry, sheep and goats. We have welcomed some token camelids-llamas, although not able to accept such as a rule. Because of the unique focus on a variety of farm animals, equines are referred on to horse-specific resources.

We invite you to become a supporter of our sanctuary too. With your financial donations, volunteerism and support, we can continue to help more animals. New Dawn MT Farm Sanctuary, serves as an oasis for people who are interested and care about animals to have contact with the farm animals. Guests visiting the sanctuary have the opportunity to learn that farmed animals need protection and, indeed, love too, as do all species of this planet.
You may access educational material while you visit the animal ambassadors. The sanctuary gift shop helps raise much needed funding for the sanctuary.

New Dawn MT Farm Sanctuary provides projects and internship positions and placements primarily for University of Montana staff and students. The internship program is designed to give college students a chance to gain experience with farmed animals in a nonproduction type setting. Most of the students, who receive school credit for their semester class at the sanctuary, are from neighboring U M. The internship offers students the rare opportunity to see farm animals behaving naturally and to observe them living freely. Students can interact with the animals as they participate in their daily care, special projects, plan activities and office duties. Additionally, New Dawn MT gives students information about animal agriculture systems and current animal, environment and human health and welfare concerns. If you are interested in being a New Dawn student intern, contact U M internship dept. or e-mail the sanctuary. Other schools, faculty and students are also welcome to contact the sanctuary for more information. Church, Scout groups, K-12 students, etc., are all welcome to visit the farm animals and day projects abound here for wholesome, helpful activities and fun. Potential volunteer credit time is available.
Animal residents have a life-long shelter and live out their natural life-spans in peace at: New Dawn MT Farm Sanctuary. We are prepared when accepting an animal to provide life-long care, without hesitation, for whatever reason they have come to us.
Please be a supporter. As animal ambassadors for their kind, let the residents speak to you in their own way about our version of the 3- R's: Re-thinking,
Reducing and aiming to ultimately Refuse to eat or wear animal-based products. We hope to inspire people to choose a mindful, humane lifestyle that benefits the animals, humans and our planet. A winning combination! For all!
