Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary is located in Erie
, Colorado. They are registered as a nonprofit animal sanctuary for abused or neglected farmed animals. Their rescued residents include cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, horses, goats, donkeys, sheep, and ducks.
Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary opened its doors in August 2015 after founders Shaleen and Shilpi Shahs realized farmed animals required refuge. The Shahs considered it a safer space and they have zero tolerance for any form of discrimination.
The Shahs began their journey toward providing a safe haven for rescued farmed animals with a horse named Jale, who came from a situation of neglect. After saving Jale, they received a call about a pregnant mare at an auction. When the Shahs visited the auction, they discovered there were not only horses there, but a variety of suffering farmed animals who also needed help. This inspired the Shahs to start a sanctuary for farmed animals.
As more animals came to call Luvin Arms home, more hands were required for the work involved in caring for them. Since the beginning, passionate community members have volunteered their time and talents to continue to help Luvin Arms and its residents thrive.
Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary provides exceptional lifelong social, emotional, and cognitive care to rescued farmed animals, and advocates for those who have not been rescued by sharing our residents’ stories to inspire, educate, and empower others to embrace a more compassionate and sustainable lifestyle.
