Our Mission

We are a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to rescue, rehabilitate, retire and occasionally rehome, neglected abandoned and abused farm animals. We want to educate the public regarding the care and needs of these gentle farm creatures. Orphan Annimals provides immediate medical care, regular veterinary care, food and shelter to our rescued animals. We create tailored programs for each animal that comes to us to help them realize their full potential and ensure they lead happy, healthy lives. We strive to prevent future cruelty towards animals by educating the community on responsible stewardship. Our work is solely supported by donations and committed volunteers.

Our Story

Our story begins with Darla Daniel, the founder of Orphan Anni-mals. Darla has always had a great love for animals and is a farrier by trade. She started out saving injured horses and dogs; over the years things began to take on a life of their own as she began saving farm animals of all kinds. Darla had been doing this for over 20 years, all on her own. After friends and family encouraged her, she became an official, non-profit 501c3.

The Orphan Anni-mals Rescue is situated on a beautiful 16 acre farm in Glen Gardner, New Jersey. The name also came out of something that Darla loves, Little Orphan Annie. Many of the animals she saves have been abandoned and neglected so she felt that they were orphaned and the name Orphan Anni-mals was born.

Please join us on our journey of rescuing farm animals, helping them heal and watching them become happy and healthy!
