FAQ

General

We are not open to the public at this time.  We will be in our new location.

The animals at Kindred are considered our partners in the work we do in the community. A petting zoo uses farm animals for entertainment and profit purposes.  Usually the animals are small babies and when they grow bigger they are sold for slaughter.  Some of the animals at Kindred have been rescued from a petting zoo.

Our address is not published in order to protect the children in the programs, as well as the private residence on the property. Once you confirm attendance at an orientation, or set up an appointment to visit the farm with our staff, you will be informed of the exact address. We are located in South Surrey, BC in the vicinity of Redwood Park.

We are about a 15 minute walk away from a bus stop @ 24th Ave / 176th Street (WB 24 Ave FS 176St)

Volunteer

We have a volunteer orientation every other month.

The Orientation is about an hour long and is designed to answer all of the questions you may have about joining our team. (not suitable for children, they find it very boring)

Farm Animal Rescue

We are partnered with local and provincial animal welfare/rescue groups who identify farm animals in need who are hard to adopt out. We are often the animal’s last chance to find a new home

We’re sorry, but we do not accept owner surrendered farm animals.

Currently, we have 30 animals and are at capacity at our little farm. Can you help us find our new home, so we can help more animals in need?

Absolutely! It just needs to be feed that is part of our animal health program at the farm. Please contact us and we will be so grateful.

We would love to receive a card on behalf of one of our animals. It makes us so happy that our animals inspire you and this is what helps us keep going.

We are not government funded. The “Cups of Coffee Patrons” monthly donations (find out more here) make a huge impact on covering daily and emergency care for our animals.
