Today’s Shining World Award program features Marla Riley, the president and founder of The Riley Farm Rescue, located in Connecticut, United States. Marla and her team of caring volunteers work tirelessly to rescue our benevolent farm animal-people friends from slaughterhouses.

In 2017, Ms. Riley moved away from adopting and caring for animal-persons in her backyard and expanded to a 10.5-hectare farm. Since then, she has rescued hundreds of animal-people from livestock auctions, along with those involved in other situations of neglect and abuse.

“The Riley Farm Rescue saves and rehabilitates animals. We have over 220 animals under our care right now. This is their forever home. So, they do stay with us for the remainder of their lives, where we can provide them the love and care that they deserve. If you would like to follow our mission, we are on social media, the Riley Farm Rescue. We’re a non-profit. So, everything is, funded by donations 100%.”

In March 2021, Marla and volunteers from the Riley Farm Rescue saved 18 lamb-persons, including 10 babies, from being auctioned. They were nursed back to health by volunteers, and then some were moved to other animal-people sanctuaries around the country to lead a safe, peaceful and fulfilling life.

Upon hearing the news, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to The Riley Farm Rescue plus a US$10,000 humble contribution to assist your life-saving work, with love and gratitude. May you and the sweet animal-people be blessed and protected by God’s Grace.”
