About Gilroy Ostrich Farm

Gilroy Ostrich Farm is a non-profit, 501c3 organization

Gilroy Ostrich Farm is dedicated to the protection and nurturing of animals.

Our mission is to rescue and protect animals which is of one of our main priorities. We are called from shelters all over California and asked to take more animals who are in need of a home. We take as many as we can, but caring for our animals takes a lot of hard work, investments in shelter and food, and lots of dedication and love from our staff. We care for more than just Ostriches. We have bunnies, emu’s, cows, horses, sheep, chickens, reptiles and more!

Children of all ages love to come to the farm to see and pet the animals and feed some of the animals too. We have tons of babies that they love to see and learn about. Meet our new baby ostriches! Aren’t they spectacular? Read our Mission below…
