Metric Forrest Studio is proud to support the following organizations:
Heartland Farm Sanctuary
Heartland Farm Sanctuary is dedicated to helping homeless farm animals in Wisconsin and building connections between animals and vulnerable youth. Heartland was created to provide a safe, peaceful environment where youth and farm animals could come together to heal, grow, and have fun. Their mission is to provide care for farm animals in need, nurture people through the human-animal bond, and foster respect and kindness toward animals and each other.
Heartland is Wisconsin’s rescue resource for farm animals and serves as one of the state’s only shelters devoted to the care and rehabilitation of pigs, goats, chickens, and other farm animals in need. Every year, Heartland members provide the “last chance” for dozens of abused, neglected, and abandoned farm animals who have nowhere else to go. Many of the animals find their forever homes at Heartland, and others are placed into safe, loving adoptive homes so they can keep their barn doors open for other animals in need of refuge.
Each animal rescued “gives back” to thousands of people each year. Led by licensed counselors and knowledgeable animal care staff, Heartland offers therapeutic animal assisted services to children and adults with special needs, at risk youth, and youth and adults who have been traumatized from abuse or other significant loss in their lives. Their therapeutic support programs provide healing and hope for hundreds of individuals and their families each year.
