About Us

John and Lynda Edwards, both retired teachers who love animals and want to make a difference in this world, started the Edwards Foundation. The farm is located on five acres in rustic Parker, Colorado and there are another 70 acres 12 miles east of Parker in Elbert County. The animals that need constant care are on the Parker property. Here they have food, water, shelter, medications, and plenty of room to roam.

We are always grateful for volunteer help. Lynda, John, Lynda's daughter Teri and her husband Jim do all the day chores. Financial contributions to help defer the cost of maintaining these animals, which we currently finance out of pocket, are much appreciated. Some of our animals are on prescribed medications, which become very expensive. We don't adopt our animals out. However, you can visit the farm and help with their care, or sponsor a specific animal with your donations. We will add a heart to that animal's bio on our Meet the Animals page with your initials to show that you're a sponsor.

Since there are plenty of good small animal shelters around to rescue pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits, and birds, our focus is on rescuing large animals where adequate space is a concern.

Our animals come to us from referrals by friends and organizations in Parker and throughout the Denver area. We've also adopted animals from the Denver Zoo when they've closed down exhibits, retired working animals from the Forestry Department, as well as the Bureau of Land Management.

You are welcome to visit the farm if you're in the area. Please see our Visit Us page for details. You can meet the animals, feed the ducks, groom horses, and kiss the llamas! Take a few minutes to watch the slide show with a few more photos of the farm. For more information, see our FAQs below.
