 THE TEAM 

 BRITTNEY KANE 

 Co-founder &  

 Executive Director & Interim Board President 

DSC_0969.jpg

When asked about how Foreverland Farm got started, Brittney's reply is always the same, "That is a great question" she'll say as she laughs.  Brittney began her love affair with animals as far back as she can remember.  The first animal she ever cared for was her guinea pig, named Pidge.  Since those days she has rescued animals from shelters as companion animals, and got into rescue seriously after adopting a horse named Booger in 2012.

 

Since founding Foreverland Farm officially in 2018 with her spouse Sawyer, Brittney has focused her efforts on alleviating suffering for animals through rescue and education. Managing the farm, along with her full-time job as a mental health therapist, Brittney hopes to bring healing and compassion to animals and humans through her work. 

 SAWYER KANE 

 Co-founder 

Sawyer Kane is a clinically licensed social worker, working in the criminal justice system.  They spend the majority of their time advocating for the release of incarcerated individuals, and educating their community on the need for more empathetic, restorative approaches within the judicial system.  The other half of their time is spent helping their wife Brittney run Foreverland Farm.

 

Sawyer got into rescue after meeting Brittney and falling in love with the world of rescue alongside Brittney's efforts. The most known fact about Sawyer is that the love of their life is one of their companion animals, a cat named Winchester (even if the feelings aren't mutual).

Raven is a 2023 graduate of the University of Cincinnati. She has a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Agricultural Business and Animal Science.

Raven struggled to find a line of work that felt “right” or gave her a sense of purpose until she found Foreverland Farm. Ever since she began working for Foreverland, she has found a true sense of purpose in being able to care for and help all the different animal residents. Raven has about 17 years of equine experience, making her one of the official horse girls of Foreverland Farm.

Raven has 1 dog, a corgi named Kaia, and two cats, Elliot and Xiomara, who she adopted from Foreverland Farm. In her free time, Raven enjoys video games, drawing and photography. Raven is very excited and hopeful for her future and looks forward to all the ways she will grow during her time at Foreverland Farm.

Emily is a 2016 graduate of Kent State University and a 2018 graduate of East Carolina University with degrees in Human Development and Family Science, and minoring in Nonprofit Studies and Interpersonal Communication. After some time in an unhealthy job, she took the leap to enroll into massage therapy school and graduated in January 2021, with furthe plans to become certified in animal massage.

Emily has always loved working with animals and has been called a “dog whisperer” more times than she can count. There has always been some deep connection and understanding between Emily and the animals. Emily’s first “job” was cat-sitting for her neighbor when she was just 12 years old, and has continued watching animals throughout her education.

Emily currently lives in Cincinnati and while she doesn’t have pets right now, she dreams of owning a large plot of land with many dogs, the bigger the better! She enjoys practicing yoga, going on road trips, and learning new things. She can often be found with some form of coffee and a snack, taking pictures of and asking to pet every dog she sees.

 OLIVIA ADAM 

 Animal Caregiver 

Olivia was born and raised in Cincinnati and now has her own family she’s raising with her husband, Dave. They have three kiddos, Norah -13, Miles-11, and Ellis-8.  They also have three dogs, Georgie, Ruby and Honey, and just recently lost their 8-year-old goldfish Rico. 


Olivia is a cosmetologist by trade and did hair in the salon for 15 years and stepped away for some time after Covid to reevaluate what she wanted out of life. Fate lead her to Foreverland Farm when she feared the care of some mini horses at a local plant store weren’t being taken care of properly. She instantly fell in love with the animals and the lovely people who ran the farm. Olivia was vegetarian when she started her journey at the farm, but quickly realized that no longer aligned with her values and veganism quickly became her way of life.


Olivia still cuts hair on the side, as it is a creative outlet for her and she enjoys talking with people. She also plays tennis competitively and loves plants. Foreverland farm is her most favorite place ever and she cannot wait to see what the future holds.
