MEET THE BAKERS
Founders, Daniel and Corrine Baker, moved to Georgia in 2015 with their three children Mara, Porter, and Eisley. Moving to Georgia, the Bakers had already been advocates for environmental and animal welfare issues. Upon arriving and seeing the sheer volume of animal exploitation permitted and so few resources available, it was a huge culture shock and they didn’t know how to help. It wasn’t until 2018 that the Sanctuary was founded after taking in their first group of pigs when they realized this was their calling and passion.
Running the Sanctuary day-to-day from animal care, maintenance, all the way to the administrative work is all done by the Bakers. It is a full-family affair. Corrine handles all administrative work, veterinary care, and social media. Dan always feeds and waters the animals first thing in the morning and does many building projects, thanks to being a carpenter. He also does all of the maintenance work around the farm while working a full-time job to support his family and the animals at the Sanctuary.
The children do a wonderful job loving on the animals, helping socialize them, but also put in physical labor when it comes to the gritty cleaning around the farm. All three can also walk you through the process of a spay and neuter procedure as well as properly give vaccines! They are warriors that will change the world! Life around the Sanctuary is incredibly busy - and often stressful - but there is so much peace and positive energy when you are doing what you have been called to do... especially when you do it with your family.
