About Us

Odd Man Inn Animal Refuge is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit farmed animal sanctuary situated on the Cumberland Plateau of Eastern Middle Tennessee.

We envision a world where all species are valued and protected.

It starts with our core values:

  • Healthcare equity
  • Lifelong sanctuary
  • Community connections
  • Science-based innovation
  • Service to the community
  • Responsible stewardship
  • Sustainability
  • Integrity

These values are our guiding compass and drive us to fulfill Our Mission of providing lifelong sanctuary care to vulnerable animals and educating to inspire compassionate living.

This propels us towards Our Ultimate Vision: a world where all species are valued and protected.

Here is What We Do...

Odd Man Inn provides 100% donor-funded animal services, including:

  • Intake of vulnerable animals in need of safety
  • Professional veterinary care for all animal residents
  • Species appropriate nutrition, housing, and healthcare
  • Continual advocacy for improved relationships between humans and non-human animals
  • Wildlife conservation and protection

...and Who We Are

Odd Man Inn is powered by a small team of talented humans dedicated to the cause of animal rights and welfare. A great majority of the work here is volunteer-based, and it is always focused on improving the lives of our Sanctuary Babes. While physical “rescue” is an important part of the equation, lifelong “Sanctuary Care” is an essential part of what we do.
