Want to join me in making a difference? We’re raising money to benefit BARN BUDDIES RESCUE (BBR), and any donation will make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to the animals.

Food costs at BBR are upwards of $7,000 per month. We’ve lost some of our greatest income sources (field trips, birthday parties, and weddings) due to Covid-19, while at the same time rescuing more animals every day. We’re trying to raise funds to cover many months’ worth of food for all the abused animals who call BBR home. Can you help?

More information about BBR: We are a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the rescue of abused, neglected, or abandoned farm animals. We provide housing, rehabilitation, and holistic care for abused farm animals. We also offer educational services that promote safe habitats and care of farm animals in the valley.

food tower image

Our wonderful friend Curt has helped us set up a GoFundMe to help us raise the money for our cell phone tower, Dubbed the FOOD TOWER.

The FOOD TOWER will help tremendously with providing stable revenue and should be able to provide enough revenue each month to cover the cost of feeding all these abused animals. Currently, the footings have been completed for the eventual construction of a cell phone tower. Leasing of the tower space to major cell phone companies, which is desperately needed in this growing area of Las Vegas, will be a tremendous aid in feeding the animals. All funds will go to building the tower…the FOOD TOWER.

IN THE MEDIA May 8, 2018

Thank you to Megan Barth for her compassion to care for cows in need. When she called she was very upset and seeking to find a solution to help emaciated cows that were not being treated well… After several conversations and much work on her part, she was able to get animal controls attention and an investigation has been started to make sure the cows are cared for properly from this day forward. Megan used her voice for good and her amazing mother, Cindy, has given a substantial donation to help BBR secure the additional land that we need to move forward. We look forward to many years of friendship working together to help abused animals in need… Thank You Megan and Cindy!!!!

Join “THE $5 CLUB” to enable us to help neglected & abandoned animals

Barn Buddies Rescue "THE $5 CLUB"

 BARN BUDDIES RESCUE is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

We’ve been doing what we do – rescuing abandoned farm animals – for many decades.

Since 2012 have we have decided to distinguish what we do at BBR from our parent organization THE FARM.

Our mission is to provide the best possible quality of life for abandoned, abused and neglected farm animals.

Our sole purpose is the rescue side of things.  All proceeds from the farmers market @ THE FARM go 100% towards the care and maintenance of the animals that call BARN BUDDIES RESCUE home.

We strongly encourage non-breeding of all animals, but especially farm animals.

Overpopulation of farm animals is overcrowding shelters, sanctuaries and temporary foster homes and we hope to be a part of the solution.

Please see our volunteer page for details about how you may assist. Our volunteers really make this place work!
