Broken Shovels Farm
8640 Dahlia St
Commerce City Colorado

Join us for an afternoon of fundraising, snuggles and celebration of the new little lives you’ve helped us rescue this year. Without attendance to these events, we could not rescue urgent cases without hesitation, ensuring we continue to help the most dire abuse and neglect cases.

Just $5 per person gives you an afternoon of wandering our pens and meeting our animals up close and personal to make a meaningful connection with the animals you’ve helped us save.

Our adorable foster puppies are ready to meet puppy cuddles and find their new forever companions, the calves will give you cow kisses and our rescued dairy discard baby goats can’t wait to meet you.

Items we love to have donated: used, clean blankets/towels/sheets, new or slightly used breakaway dog collars, size medium and large, heads or boxes of lettuces, iceberg, romaine, spring mix, etc. for our baby Cornish birds who need a special diet.
If you are bringing treats to feed the animals, please read the food rules completely. No whole fruits or vegetables will be allowed on site, and everything must be cut into small bite size pieces to avoid choking hazards. Paper bags or reusable container are allowed but absolutely no plastic bags to carry food into the pens!
Broken Shovels Farm Sanctuary is a safe place for animals rescued from abuse, neglect, slaughter and exploitation. We are not a petting zoo. We do not breed or sell animals. Occasionally animals are rescued already pregnant, they and their children will live out their lives here and will never be separated, sold or used.
For our public events, we have invited you into our animals’ safe space. Please treat them with kindness and respect. You are visiting their home; they are not here for human entertainment. When you are visiting, please follow all posted rules for the safety and comfort of the animals and visitors. Those individuals in violation of any posted signage or rules will be asked to leave.
