Forever Safe Farm - Winter Night


Forever Safe Farm Animal Education Center, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation operated exclusively for charitable purposes with a focus on education.  Specifically, this organization provides rescued and retired animals a forever home, and educates the public about proper and healthful care of animals.  It is based in the rural community of Salem, OH.


Camel Rescue - Arthur Our First Camel as a Sick BabyThe inception of this entity is preceded by the congregation of animals by Rob and Karrin Campf.  The Campf's have always had much compassion for animals of all kinds.  Previously this venture was privately funded and completely operated by Rob and Karrin.  The animals have been brought into their care by the desire to make the animals lives better after abuse and neglect were the only traits most had known from humans.


The desire to do more for these deserving animals has brought together an incredible group of people with a common goal of establishing a forever safe home for these animals.  Our team of dedicated founders, board members and volunteers will enable us to accomplish our goal of providing sanctity to animals of all kinds.  This team is dedicated to the full time operation of running this corporation full time to provide all aspects of accomplishing the necessary duties to care for the animals and raise funds to do so.  The plight of those who cannot speak for themselves has spoken volumes to us.


Camel Rescue - Arthur at 1 Year OldForever Safe Farm Animal Education Center is engaged in a full out effort to make a difference not only for these animals but for the other animals that shall criss-cross our path in the future.


Our educational focus will unveil programs for children and adults alike that will help them understand the needs of the animals.  In addition to teach that exotic animals should never be "pets" at all.  We will also educate the public on the proper care of domestic animals through seminars, farm visits and our website.


The goals set forth in the present shall be realized as we can ease the suffering of those animals that make their way to our doorstep.  With well made plans we will be able to provide the sanctity they deserve.  Past, present and future come together to provide the best care of our joint abilities have to offer.  The goals and plans for the future include the constant sanctity provided to the animals that reside with us in their forever safe home.


Solicitation of donations will support Forever Safe Farm Animal Education Center, Inc.  These donations will be acquired through fundraisers, educational seminars, and donations given through our website.  We will solicit donations via mail and email.  In  addition we will seek foundation and governmental grants and intend to expend a good deal of effort in this area.

We will be open for tours and educational visits for admission which will allow for added income for the animals.


We shall never compromise the promise we have made to the faces of the ones who now know they are safe...forever safe.

Karrin Campf

President and Sanctuary Director

Karrin's love of animals blossomed at an early age bringing any animal home that she could sneak past her parent's watchful eyes. Cats, kittens, bunnies...lead to dogs and now camels and elk. It was her good luck when she met Rob who had an equal passion for all animals, especially the "underdogs". The two of them have proudly stood side by side for a quarter of a century...dedicated to the animals that mean so much.

Together they have adopted three children from other parts of the world and have enjoyed teaching their children about animals and educating them about their proper care.
