Indiana’s first farmed animal sanctuary, Uplands PEAK Sanctuary, was founded in 2012 and opened its barn doors in 2013 to our first residents, Andy and Annie, two brave piglets who escaped a backyard butcher.
Smack-dab in the thick of animal agriculture, co-founders Mark and Michelle believe this is where sanctuary is needed more than anywhere. It is our belief that given the opportunity to experience the sentience of farmed animals people will be changed, and those changes will ripple out into the world.
This 105+ acre refuge has so much to share! Our visiting program gives educational tours to meet our rescued residents and introduce people to the realities of animal agriculture. A significant portion of the property is wooded with trails to hike or places to sit and be still. Our eco-friendly cabin offers visitors the full experience from serenading roosters at sunup to serenading frogs at sundown. The main building homes our gift shop, educational center, and community lounge.
Come out and visit PEAK! Freedom will revitalize you, as much as our residents.
