As a sanctuary, our efforts should always foster escalating freedoms. We consider the ever-maturing practice of liberation to be an essential part of what it means for a sanctuary to be a sanctuary. There is always room for furtherance and growth when we are trying to uplift others. So from efforts in restoration of respect and the sustentation of love, we rise to take this push for justice to fresh altitudes, always. This substantiates itself these days by our focus of working to culturally communicate the personhood of all animals. Come participate in sanctuary and learn from the animal-persons here who call this interspecies community their home.

As a sanctuary, we put our heart into a way of living that brings peace to those around us — in every way.

If you are interested in being a part of this loving and learning community, please do pay attention to the messages we speak to the world, to ensure that our efforts of “Peaceful Powered Animal Liberation” fits with your worldview.

As the sanctuary has developed, we have tried to create a space where Peace makes it’s presence felt. Being caregivers for the family of animal-friends who lives here is a form of love-based activism. Through meaningful experiences, guests here inspire themselves to care about life, Earth, one another, to critically examine social justice issues, and to foster skills and adopt actions that will help birth Peace. We are inspired by them as well. This mutual inspiration helps us all further understand our ethical, environmental and social responsibilities.

Intersectional veganism

Guests inform our intersectionality

We feel fortunate to host a broad cross-section of guest who come stay at Piebird and share different ambitions and different dedications towards the common good of achieving a better world. The diversity of their good desires are all linked together by the similarity of hope. Yet something more than hope is happening. All around us, we see hope in action.

That inner certainty of good people with good visions has been momentously inspiring to us. As we enter our twelfth year we feel enriched by the wealth of spirit and creativeness we see that brings about freedom and inspires peace.


As a sanctuary, our effort is for freedom, and any undertaking of freedom must be as broad as freedom itself. For freedom to approach liberation, it must be immensely generous with it’s inclusion. So we take an intersectional approach to work towards making mere freedom become true liberation.

As a sanctuary, we recognize and celebrate all efforts against injustice and hierarchy in the here and now — and we build a reflective place based on meaningful solidarity with all of those efforts.

If we are celebrating truthfulness here, then togetherness is always more transformative than anything less.
