Mission Statement


Ahimsa – Nonviolence Toward All Living Beings


The mission of Luvin Arms is to provide exceptional lifelong social, emotional, and cognitive care to rescued farmed animals, and to advocate for those who have not been rescued by sharing our residents’ stories to inspire, educate, and empower others to embrace a more compassionate and sustainable lifestyle.

Our vision is to create a sanctuary of inspiration and connection where people are empowered to create change that leads to more compassionate choices for themselves, for the planet, and justice for all beings.



Luvin Arms opened its doors in August 2015 after founders Shaleen and Shilpi realized farmed animals were in need of refuge. The Shahs began their journey toward providing a safe haven for rescued farmed animals with a horse named Jale, (pronounced Haalee) who came from a situation of neglect. After saving Jale, they received a call about a pregnant mare at an auction. When the Shahs visited the auction, they discovered there were not only horses there, but a variety of suffering farmed animals who also needed help. This inspired the Shahs to start a sanctuary for farmed animals. As more animals came to call Luvin Arms home, more hands were required for the work involved in caring for them. Since the beginning, passionate community members have volunteered their time and talents to continue to help Luvin Arms and its residents thrive.



All those with a heart open to compassion are welcomed here — whomever you are, wherever you come from, whomever you love.

Our community is all living beingsDiversity makes us stronger. Luvin Arms is a safer space and we have zero tolerance for any form of discrimination. Please refer to our Safer Spaces Policy for more information.
