Phoebe Anne Collver-Freeland, Phoebe’s Friends Microsanctuary
Phoebe Collver-Freeland started Phoebe’s Friends Microsanctuary after hearing about and being inspired by the microsanctuary movement. The sanctuary is home to a small group of farmed animals, and preschool and elementary school children are invited to Phoebe’s Friends in small groups to learn about farmed animals in a non-production setting.
The experience exposes the students to the philosophy that all animals deserve our respect and care; fostering empathy and compassion. Many children might never have a similar opportunity- if not for a small neighborhood microsanctuary!
