Live Free Farm is an animal sanctuary whose mission is to rescue animals that are abused, neglected, displaced, or whose caregivers experienced heartbreaking hardships, and provide them with a safe, loving, and nurturing forever home.
A main vision of our sanctuary will be to facilitate programs for U.S. Military Veterans by promoting a positive, emotionally supportive safe haven, with comforting interactions and care taking opportunities with the residents of our sanctuary.
Behind the Scenes - Meet the founder
Kevin J. Klink spent his childhood running around and growing up on this very property, belonging to his grandparents Donato and Mary Borrelli. After being born and raised in nearby Flagtown, he graduated from Hillsborough High School in 2000 before entering the U.S. Marine Corps. Kevin served in 2/ 2, Golf Company with whom he completed two tours in Iraq as an 0311 Infantryman. On his second tour in 2004, his HMMWV struck an IED to which he received a Purple Heart, before returning stateside shortly thereafter. After EAS'ing and receiving an Honorable Discharge, he returned back home to New Jersey and a few years later, went on to become a Police Officer. Kevin served as an officer for just over 11 years, before receiving an early Medical Retirement, and has now devoted his life to this sanctuary. He experienced that the emotional support and connection with animals is extremely powerful and comforting, and that support and connection can positively impact many more Veterans, with the encouragement and assistance of this sanctuary.

One Step at a Time
Our sanctuary is dedicated to providing safe, comfortable shelters built directly on site for the specific needs of the residents. We continually improve and expand our fenced-in sections to not only safe guard our animals from getting loose and being exposed to nature's predators, but also by making sure the predators cannot get inside their pens and compromise their safety.
We are nestled into a very quiet section of Skillman, New Jersey, tucked along the beautiful and peaceful Sourland Mountain ridge. The property we sit on has belonged in the family of the founder, since the 1950's. The property was purchased by the current third generation family member, to not only keep it in the family but also with the specific goal of creating this safe haven and helping others.
