Our Mission, Our Goals

Here at Mociso Farms Sanctuary we provide homes for animals who are in need. Many senior farm animals need a place to retire when their work on a farm is done. Many well-intentioned owners can no longer provide the best care for the livestock they have. Unfortunately, some farm animals are abused, neglected, and abandoned. Many come to us with special needs. 

Here at Mociso Farms Livestock Sanctuary & Rescue, we strive to provide for these beautiful, farmed animals by offering appropriate nutrition, free-range pasture, shelter, love, and compassion.

We are not a petting zoo. 

Our rescues arrive here scared and unsure. Many have been tramatized. We do not stress them further by having a rotation of strange faces in front of them. We are also highly aware of transmittable diseases. These sweet rescues may have health issues that can be further compromised by visitors. Avian flu, now passing to livestock other than chickens, is a major threat. 

Thank you for prioritizing their health and safety.




Did you know?

*** Our Farm Sanctuary is named after our first 3 rescues? ***

 Mojito (aka MoeMoe) was a pug terrier mix rescued from a Florida shelter. Moe Moe has since left us for Doggie Heaven and took a good chunk of our hearts with him.

CiCi is pictured above. A feisty little senior Chihuahua mix that took on FIVE coyotes and survived!

Sofie, an American Eskimo, was rescued from a very abusive situation. Ten years later, her damaged hips have healed, and she is the biggest snuggle bunny ever! EDIT: Sadly, our sweet Sofie left this earth April 2024

Mo   Ci   So = Mociso Farms!


***Our Sanctuary & Rescue is also a Certified Wildlife Habitat? ***

We are certified through the Kentucky Waterways Alliance and the National Wildlife Federation. We work to sustainably provide food, water and coverage for bees, butterflies, reptiles and small mammals that may be on-site. 

If you would like to help us continue this effort, please consider donating here.


*** We have educational conservancy programs to save rare & threatened 

heritage breeds of farm animals? ***

Can you believe there are dozens of breeds of farm animals going extinct?? We are passionate about saving the genetics of rare and threatened farm animals and currently have our focus on poultry. Read more about how you can help save many more heritage breeds from extinction and check availability of our current heritage and/or threatened poultry breeds on our
