Peace Ridge was founded in 2001 in order to address animal cruelty, neglect and exploitation, and to promote vegan ethics in New England. We advocate for all animals – farmed animals, domestic companion animals, and wildlife. We believe society needs to rethink the way that it views and interacts with animals in order to become a more peaceful and just society. We believe that social justice cannot be achieved unless we acknowledge the social injustice we perpetrate on animals.
At any given time, Peace Ridge is home to over 300 rescued farmed animals and equines rescued from local cruelty and neglect cases and given a forever home here at our state-licensed shelters. In addition to our rescue, sanctuary, and education programs, Peace Ridge also dedicates over 1,000 acres to wildlife protection and land conversation.
