The Devoted Barn is an animal rescue and rehabilitation facility in Newport, Michigan. The animals that we take in come from the streets, cruelty cases, and large scale hoarding situations. We are currently home to horses, llamas, sheep, pigs, dogs, cats, and a bunny. They come to The Devoted Barn to heal and learn to trust. They will share their journey with those from around Metro Detroit as part of hands-on education process. We always encourage both youth and adults to come and visit. Some of our frequent visitors and volunteers are Boys or Girl Scouts, Goodwill's Adult Day Group, at-risk youth, and others.
The Devoted Barn sits on 53 acres about 30 miles south of Detroit. Before purchasing the barn in August of 2013 it had been unused for a few years and was in pretty rough shape. There are 30 stalls, one large 10 acre pasture, a large indoor area, and a small paddock.
The Devoted Barn is a program of Devoted Friends Animal Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the lives of the companion animals we love. Devoted Friends Animal Society received its 501(c)3 non-profit status in 2010. The mission of DFAS is to help companion animals like dogs, cats, and equine find their forever homes. Through rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption, DFAS commits to the animals for their entire lives.
