Couple’s passion lies in rescuing farm animals

Years ago, Oscar Janssen and Lynn Printy were enjoying successful careers in corporate aviation where he was a pilot and she was a flight attendant, CT Insider reported.

Life was good and they were happy, but the couple knew they wanted to do more. So, in 2019, they purchased a farm near Litchfield, Conn., and converted it into the JP Farm Animal Sanctuary where they rescue a menagerie of animals.

According to CT Insider, the sanctuary’s day-to-day mission is to keep the animals living there well-fed, groomed, looked-after and, more importantly, loved. At last count, they housed three steers, four cows, four pigs, two hens, three roosters, two dogs — and Ronnie, the resident turkey.

“If you eat meat or not, it’s up to you,” Oscar said. “All we hope is that we can inspire you to think about where your food comes from.” 

JP Farm Animal Sanctuary stands for Janssen Printy, Oscar and Lynn’s last names, but they like to think it also represents joy and peace, the group’s website explained.

When people visit the sanctuary’s website, the couple’s goal is to inspire and educate people to live a healthy, happy and compassionate life, they explained.

People can support the sanctuary by sponsoring an animal or volunteering to care for them. By signing up for their newsletter, people can read stories, get updates about the rescued animals and learn more about a plant-based lifestyle, which includes some delicious recipes.
