Orchards for Animals

FTPF’s “Orchards for Animals” program improves lives for rescued animals on sanctuaries by providing fruit trees for shade, shelter, enrichment, and healthy diets. When the trees mature, animals are able to enjoy delicious fruits and foraging opportunities. During times of extreme heat or precipitation, animals can seek shade and shelter under the trees without being away from their food source. Fruit trees allow for the most natural diet available to animals, plucked fresh off the tree with no chemicals or pesticides. The description below is one example of this program area.

Farm Sanctuary in Orland, California
October, 2008: FTPF's "Orchards for Animals" program plants 50 fruit trees and provides a workshop for 25 volunteers at this renowned safe haven for farmed animals. The trees will provide essential nutrition, shade, enrichment, and foraging opportunities for rescued animals.
