About Us


Our Story

Serenity Lane Animal Sanctuary was founded by Carolyn Carr and Paul Moed and opened as a sanctuary in the Spring of 2022 as a safe haven and forever home for farm animals who have been neglected, abused, abandoned, or forgotten. Our farm is home to a variety of animals, including horses, highland cows, donkeys, goats, sheep, alpacas, a llama, pigs, ducks, rabbits, and cats.

Most of our residents are farm animals that were originally purchased as pets, not working farm animals. 

All of our furry friends receive care and shelter, but also love and attention as we gain their trust and try our best to give them the best lives possible. 

Our farm is located on 93 acres in South Dummer, near Norwood, Ontario.

Our Team

Our team is rather small, but we all care for our animals and want to make their lives as comfortable as we can.

Beliefs & Activism

Abuse & Neglect

We take a strong stance against neglect and abuse here at Serenity Lane. So many animals are bred for profit and then purchased by people who want them because they’re “cute” (which they totally are), but then discard or neglect them when they become too much work. 

Many of our residents came to us from places where their needs were not met and some were barely used to human contact.

Breeding & Castration

While we do love baby animals, all of our males are castrated as soon as possible, if they aren't already. We do keep and take care of any babies that are born, but we do not breed our animals.

Our belief is that there are already so many animals in the world that need love and care, so why would we actively make more because they’re cute? We love baby animals, but the ones already here need us too.

As of January 2023, we have had more than a dozen births from animals arriving that we didn't know were pregnant until much later.
